Hi

I am 24yrs old female from India.
Having 2+ yrs of Work-Ex.
I have already given GMAT once and got 690. Since I was not satisfied with the score I will be giving it again.
My concern is how much GMAT score I should have to get into Top MBA Programs.
I am looking forward for Top 20 MBA programs ( mainly Stern ).

Can anyone please evaluate my chances for the same.

My profile is as below:

I have done my engineering in Electrical & Electronics from the State University ( UPTU) with 71%.
I started my work with Infosys(Aug. 2009) but left in 3 months during its training and joined Accenture.
I worked in Accenture(Dec. 2009) for 2 years in Informatica Domain.
Then I joined HSBC(Jan 2012) but because Capital One has bought the Credit Retail Service Business of HSBC in US I am currently working with Capital One(May 2012) as Data Analyst. My work here is of Data management.


Part Time Experiences -

1) I ran the franchisee of BrainObrain Kids Academy Pvt Ltd for 3yrs during my College days.
2) I have been Online Maths Tutor for more than 1year now.


Extra Activities -

I have been actively participating in Extra Curricular Activities -

I would want to know what all extra curricular activities of mine can add to my profile....

1) I have taught Dance in Summer Camp during my school days.
2) I have choreographed Cultural events in Society.
3) I have been part of organizing team of Fresher's Party during my Second year of College.
4) I have also been part of organizing team of Inter College Technical Fest during Final Year of College.
5) I won first prize in the Technical Fest of College for the event " Algorithm".
6) I was the batch Topper in Accenture's Greenfield Training Batch.
7) I have also choreographed dance and Fashion Show in Accenture.

Hope the above details will help in evaluating the profile.

You have heard it right. Indian applicant pool is extremely competitive.Hence more Work Experience and 700+ GMAT score for top 20.

Even though Stern does not have a GMAT cut-off score, the average GMAT score for admitted applicants is above 700. GMAT is one of the components of your application, and a score below 700 score does not disqualify you from serious consideration, you still need 700 + to strengthen your candidacy.

I hope I could help.

Hi

I know I am low on experience side.
But due to my personal constraint I have to take admission for Fall 2013.
Since I want to get into Top 20 B-school Programs, I wanted to know with my existing job profile, what GMAT score is required.
Also, I have heard that Indian pool is very tough.
