Oh can we build an app that automatically replys. For Example:
[*]"Your GMAT is slightly below the schools mean, and although it's not a deal breaker, it is maybe seen as a cause for concern"
[*]"Your GMA is slightly below the schools mean, and although it's not a deal breaker, it is maybe seen as a cause for concern"
[*]"You are from a typical profile applicant, Male Indian IT w/ High GMAT, it is how you differentiate yourself as unique that will help you application"
[*]"You have a great unique profile, you will need to establish clear reasons for wanting an MBA"
[*]"Have you concidered taking more Quant Class, or just settle for yale"
[*]"Are you Kidding ME??

Might be worthwhile considering a few more points:

7) Uniqueness: What sets you apart? Any accomplishments at work (gone beyond the regular responsibilities, helped the organisation save \$500K by leading an efficiency improvement project) or elsewhere (marathon runner who can juggle and solve the crossword while running)?

8) Recommendations: Have you already shortlisted recommenders? How well do they know you? Can they write strong recos for you?

9) Gaps: Are there any gaps in the academic (low grades) or professional (career break) areas? Can you provide an explanation that'll help address these gaps?

Some of this might be a little subjective (like the uniqueness stuff). But a candidate is in the best position to judge these rather than peers who have a few sentences to judge the strength of an applicant's profile. Nevertheless, any additional information is helpful.

Hi folks,

Well, I am planning to apply for the MiM programmes Sept 2017 intake, so which gives me approximately 18 months from now for me to complete my application. I want to know how good is my profile as of now and hence I request you to evaluate my profile and provide suggestions on the areas of development.

CGPA: 6.8/10 ... as a number this looks like a low cgpa.. But then in my university this is a first class CGPA. ( non -IIT top 20 engineering schools in India) Suggestion needed on this part.

GMAT- determined to get 700+ ... have been scoring 650+ in mock tests and I am planing to take my GMAT in JAN 2017. So this gives me 5 more months to prepare

Extra Curriculars

As of now Two Internships.. One as a client relations management intern in one of the top 4 insurance firms in India and the other one is a marketing Internship from one of the top three Tractor manufacturing firms in India. One more thing is some people say that it is good to have as many internships as possible during undergrads. But Some other people say that too many internships is looked down upon and a maximum of two internships is to be maintained. Suggestion needed on this part.

Secretary of The Wall Street Club (finance) club in my college.

Working on a online trading based paper along with a friend of mine which should be ready in another couple of months.

Apart from these

I have attended 3 Model united Nations conferences representing the delegations of various countries.
Quizzer during my school time and have won a lot of quiz competitions.
Business director of a web startup which failed after one year of decent reach though no profits were made.
Active member of the Entrepreneurship Development Club of my college
Have organised a lot of events which includes a Technical workshop which was attended by over 1000 Engineering students from all over the country.

Hereby I request you to kindly evaluate my profile assuming that I score a 700 in my GMAT and a overall cgpa of 7.2/10 by the time I start applying.

My target schools in the order of preference

1. LBS
2.Michigan Ross MiM - first intake Sept 2014.
3. Duke Fuqua - MMS FOB
4. ESCP
5. HEC
6. ESSEC
7. Rotterdam School of Management

To add that this website is helping a lot of students these days. The best educational forums I have ever seen. Keep going.
