Hi guys! Not sure if this is the right place to post. I am relatively new here. So please redirect me to the correct forum if it’s not this one.

I wrote the gmat 2 weeks ago and scored a 710
Break up: Q45(57 percentile) and V41 (94 percentile)

I am happy with the overal score. Wanted everyone’s thoughts on the quant bit though. Is it too low? I’ll give you more of my background below:

Indian Female, Age 25, Chartered Accountant (all levels in first attempt)

GPA: not too sure at the moment (have to check my documents), but above 7.87/10

College: not very well ranked, bachelor in business management, graduated in 2014, managed this while working full time for a big 4 (third year of the three year degree)

Work experience
1) 3 year articleship in a big 4 (tax)
2) 3 months full time post articleship in the same big 4
3) 1 year 3 months in the valuation team of another big 4
4) 7 months at a VC (ongoing, will finish 2 years by the time I intent to join bschool)

Total: 4-5 years depending on if articleship is counted or not

Extracurriculars
- teacher with teach for change (taught a group of underprivileged students and made sure they passed English Toefl level exams to better equip them for jobs)
- miracle manna (orphanage for children where I conducted activities)
- college: editorial team of college newspaper / newsletter
- recently started volunteering with make a wish foundation (hoping this will allow me to take on a more serious role)


Awards
- 1 award during articleship and finalist in 1 competition during articleship

Others
- been actively involved in a business separation legal case - from end to end
- this takes up most of my time outside work

Questions
1) is the quant score low considering I am Indian and I intend to major in finance and probably strategy? How do I make up for it?

(Note: I am not an engineer)

2) what schools seem realistic? Dream? Reach?

3) what’s the job situation in the US?

4) should I consider an MiM over an MBA

5) with the current Gmat score, what kind of scholarships and support can I expect?

6) planning to retake gmat - not very confident about scoring more than this score. Even if quant improves, verbal might drop. What are your thoughts on the score as it is? And in what situation should I accept or reject my next score?

Hello kritikalal

Overall you have a strong profile, but not sure which university you have shortlisted.
Total GMAT score is ok, whether you should re-take it depends on which colleges you are applying to.
1. Quant is certainly a problem, some colleges expect you to have 75-80 percentile in both the sections. Considering your CA background, I assume you can do better in quant.
2. What colleges are realistic for you can be decided only if you mention your future goals. Which country do you wish to study in, where do you wish to work in the future etc?
3. Job situation in US- perhaps only Trump can answer that :-D. It is at least 3 years before you graduate (if you study in US). No one can predict what the situation will be then.
4. MiM vs MBA- Looking at your work ex, go for an MBA.
5. Scholarships- Usually not based on just the GMAT score but overall profile of the applicant. Also it will depend on the college. If your GMAT (710) is much higher than the average GMAT of the college you get admitted to, you may have a chance of scholarship.

All the best.

Thanks OneMBAcoach.
At this point, my top two schools seem to by NYU and LBS. Columbia and Booth too. Anything specific you can add to your already helpful comment based on the schools?
I am rewriting the GMAT - on May 31 - juggling this with work is NOT going to be easy. So let's see how that goes for me.

Hello kritikalal

All four colleges will definitely expect you to have more balanced scores, 75-80 percentile. Good idea to re-take the GMAT and improve your quant score.
No rocket science here, but your shortlisted colleges see really tough competition, GMAT will be just one part. You will need a very strong application with compelling reasons to get an admit. You will have to stretch a bit to reach these.

All the best.

Hello AngadAhuja

Kudos to planning ahead.

After finally deciding to pursue an MBA, the applicant’s first questions are-

· What is the admissions committee looking for?

· How do I improve my profile?

What is the Admissions committee looking for?

Getting into a B-school can sure be daunting. But it is quite simple to break down what the admission committee is looking for in a good candidate.

Admissions in top b-schools happen on basis of GMAT, Essays & Interviews.

A combination of this holy trinity helps the admission committee judge the applicant on primarily six parameters-

1. Academics

2. Work Experience

3. Goal Clarity

4. Diversity

5. Leadership

6. Communication.

You have to be very strong on most of these elements to secure admit. Sure, a weak area in an applicant’s profile may be offset by another very strong element. For instance weak academic record could be offset by a stellar work experience or a strong GMAT score.

However, overall profile of the applicant is very important. No single strong element can decide the outcome of your result. Do not rest on your laurels if you have a strong GMAT or undergraduate degree. At times applicants spend disproportionate time on the GMAT and falter in writing great application essays or become tongue tied in the interviews due to lack of preparation.

Spend equal effort on making each element of your profile strong.

Since it is very difficult to write everything in one post, read on How to improve your profile and Planning an early MBA below-

All the best

Hi neo92,

Great to see your message.

I think you have an excellent profile. You should have a competitive application to the schools you are interested in. You need to do some work to streamline your story - in other words, I would like to know why you did what you did when you did it, and how it ties up with your grand plan. At least with respect to top schools, it is your motivation and passion for make a difference that matters, and the better you are able to communicate this emotion, the stronger your application.

Feel free to get in touch (by scheduling an appointment using the link below) - would love to discuss your profile in a bit more detail.

Regards,
Karthik

Hello daljeet6586

It would help further if you can mention more around your work experience, career progression and key achievements at work.
Also, what sort of GMAT score are you expecting?
Lastly, the biggest piece of the puzzle is also missing- what are your career goals and why is an MBA an absolute necessity to reach these goals? Get started by reading more on career goals here.
It is good to have great extracurricular activities (always helps you stand out) but that is not the most critical part (as it seems from your post).
Instead of showcasing a laundry list, focus on a few activities but show depth there. Also you should be careful that you are not sending a lit of mixed messages to the admissions panel, as you need to maintain a cohesive narrative.
You can read here on what matters in a profile for successful admission.

Hello daljeet6586

What is your expected GMAT and what are your short term career goals after ISB?
Entrepreneurship is too broad and an MBA is not a necessity to reach there. You might want to elaborate and show a stronger narrative there.

Almost 7 years of experience in Software Industry

Work Exp: 5 years in TCS, 2 years in British Telecom

I am learning bharatnatyam, level 2 in reiki(if these can add any values to profile).
Organized various events in college.
Presented paper in IEEE.

Have suffered a major setback in my life in 2017. Would mentioning that add value or will become negative.

Honest Feedback please.
