Hi, I have received a GMAT score of 720.
Q-47, V-42, IR-6, AWA-4.5

I have a good academic record and work ex of 2 years.
I know this is not the perfect score to get into top 5 schools but I was wondering which of the other top 10 B schools can I apply to with chances of a getting an interview and a scholarship.
Any thoughts?

Could you please provide more background on your profile?
GMAT score is not always key criteria for acceptance.

720 for over-presented group (Indian male IT expert) is not enough to get to TOP5.
But if you have some strong differentiators - this could be game changer.

Hey.

I am 24 years old, female from India.
Work experience of 2 years in Data Analytics.
CGPA of 8.9 (scale of 10) in B.Tech from a premier Indian institute.

I am not aiming for the top 5 schools. I want to know between 5-15 which schools do I stand a chance for getting a call and also receiving a scholarship.

Hi leia23,

You have a decent profile. I think you have a good GMAT score to get into TOP US schools apart from M7. I'm more concerned about your low work ex. It is on the lower side. It hence, becomes difficult for you to prove your accomplishments. Your career progression, leadership and team work. Therefore, more reliance on your academics. But still a lot of people apply with 2-3 years of work ex and get in.
Purdue Krannert and CMU Tepper are good schools for Data Analytics. NYU Stern too has a good program. I'd be happy to discuss your profile over a call and suggest some schools. Hope this helps.

Hi leia,

I'm answering your questions here because you've turned off private messages.

1. Yes the programs I've mentioned are MBA in Data Analytics.

2. You have a good profile to get a merit based scholarship. But each school has different eligibility criteria of awarding scholarships. Moreover, there are specific scholarships that maybe dependent on where you're from, your gender, your MBA concentration, etc. This one is tough to answer.

3. Yes it does make it better but only marginally. Within the next year you'll have to portray career progression maybe improve your GMAT score, basically anything and everything you can to improve your candidacy.

Best,
