Admit guidance

Post Tue Feb 16, 2016 2:30 am
I scored GMAT 720 - V 41, Q 48 last year and applied to Kellogg and Ross, however; didn't get shortlisted. I have 6+ years of work experience as an IT professional, banking domain (big pie among applicants). Few mistakes that I introspected - I didn't put enough time researching colleges (didn't apply to enough colleges either), didn't go for any professional help and could have given GMAT again for a higher score to improve chance of admit/scholarship. I plan on having a strong profile for spring/fall 2017 (and save some more money) and am looking for pointers in the right direction. Can someone help evaluate my application?

the two thing you do not mention, and are very important, are your goal focus (and as part of that, "why school X") as well as your extra curricular and community service activities (which will help you stand out from other similarly strong candidates). If those are well developed, then make sure to apply in Round 1, and with good essays you should be in good shape. cheers, alex
