I am an Indian female, with over 9 years of diverse work experience of 4.5 years in IT, 3.5 years as an entrepreneur(co-owner of a clothing label) and currently as a Business Development Manager in a start-up, with exposure to big brands in various fields, like FMCG, Banking, Automobiles, F&L.
Education: B. Tech in Computer Sc. with Honors. Topper throughout.
I have won competitions in National and College level.
I have organized events in College and in work place.
I have been the Chapter Representative(Delhi) for an NGO that looks after slum children's education.

Please let me know in which colleges do I stand a chance, anywhere in the world.

Hi ChhaviN ,

Considering your profile and GMAT Score, I would never prefer applying to first 3 schools you mentioned because those three are really competitive. I am not sure about Singapore schools though.

Your profile is great but GMAT could be a hurdle for you. I would prefer pushing your GMAT Score to 700+ and then go for these schools.

All the best. :)

I had asked to send my scores to those 3 schools before the GMAT exam. Please let me know which all other schools I can apply to, now that I have this score in hand and with this kind of profile (considering I don't have time to give GMAT again and I want to join next year, if possible).

You can look at some European schools too. I think you stand a fair chance in many of the EU schools except the ones such as INSEAD, LBS and the like.

Though its average GMAT is higher, IE Madrid could be a very good possibility, if you put in a strong application, given the entrepreneurship experience that you have.

Hello there,

You over all carry a good profile but GMAT is at a lower side. As mentioned that you were a topper, I definitely feel you can score much better in GMAT. Considering the fact that you don't have enough time to retake GMAT, below mentioned are some of the B-Schools you must consider applying.

Babson College Olin Graduate School of Business
University of Georgia Terry College of Business
Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University
University of Western Ontario - Ivey
University of St.Gallen MBA-HSG
SDA Bocconi School of Management- Italy
Georgia Tech- Ernest Scheller Jr. College of Business
NUS - National University of Singapore

If you want to have a detailed free profile evaluation by the top B-schools Alumni please feel free to reach us out at +91 9980044412.

You can also evaluate your profile by using our ingenious tool called B-School Selector. B-School selector is an intelligent B-Schools shortlisting tool designed by team of expert consultants graduated from Ivy League B-Schools.

Top 20 MBA programs would probably be a stretch with this score, although we had many candidates admitted to top programs with relatively low GMAT scores, as you can see here: https://aringo.com/aringo-top-mba-gmat-results/

In order to get a chances estimation based on your score and profile, you can use our online MBA chances calculator: https://aringo.com/mba-admission-chances-calculator/. It can also help you realize where you have better admission chances. Good luck and don't hesitate to contact us if you need any assistance!

Chavvi,

How open are you to retaking the GMAT?
There are several colleges where you can apply with this score, but a better GMAT score can give you access to better-ranked programs.

Also, give some idea about what kind of programs are you considering? what do you want to do after the MBA?

Please suggest more schools in Europe. GMAT score was a blunder but I really want to apply this year. I am late as only Round 2 applications are getting accepted now.
I wouldn't mind any decent B school, doesn't have to be necessarily in the Top 20.
