Hi there!

I think your background is really strong, especially with the exposure across sectors, experience at a well known consultancy, and the fellowship too. Depending on how strong your GPA is, I do worry a bit about your GMAT, and would really love to see you at or above that 700 mark. Your section scores are good, except for IR, so if possible I think it would be worth retaking to see if you can score higher. Otherwise I think those schools seem reasonable and you have a lot to offer!

Best of luck
Kate

Hi MounikaUppala, not sure if your question has already been answered, but yes, as long as your test date is before the round 2 deadlines, then you'll be fine. But...you'll need to go ahead and start preparing the essays & other application components ahead of time, as you don't want to leave all that work for after the exam. Good luck!

I see most schools want two referees who know you in a professional capacity.

What would be a better choice?

A) Colleague whom you have worked extensively and a current supervisor?

B) Colleague whom you have worked extensively and a former supervisor?

Hi there,
Yes that's correct that they prefer professional references. I would go with Option A. Schools also typically have a preference to see one of the two be your current supervisor, and if you don't have one from your current supervisor, you'd need to explain why.
Hope this helps!

With regards to Option A - Is it ok if I have two references from the same organisation?

Yes, that's completely fine. I've seen many applicants with two references from the same org, especially if you've been there awhile. You should, however, guide those two recommenders to try to highlight slightly different strengths/accomplishments, just so the two letters are not too repetitive.
