GMAT:650 - Please help with profile evaluation

Post Mon Dec 19, 2011 2:54 pm
Hello Sir,

I need help with college selection and profile evaluation. Please see my details below:

GMAT - 650
AWA - awaited
GPA - 2.5
Work ex - 5.5 years in IT
2 years in US (client location) as Team lead
Was Vice president of a Company Outreach program for 3 years.
Have worked with Company HR in organizing many of their programs.
Received Above and beyond award last year for my work.
My project received most Innovative project award

I am looking for 1year or 2 year full time MBA programs in US or India. I plan to apply for the ongoing R2 for some colleges. If not possible, I can wait a year and apply for 2013 fall. By then I'll have 6.5 years of experience.

Greatly appreciate your help. I expected a 700 in GMAT, but with a low score, I am little lost and need help.

Hi,

I was not able to take up GMAT again. Now, I am planning to apply for Part-time MBA in USA. I plan to apply to Rochester, University of Texas, Carnegie Mellon, McCombs, Marshall, Rice University. I think with my score and experience, Part-time MBA in these colleges should be in reach. Please advise.

Thanks.

Hmmm, well part time and full time are totally different programs. Part time programs are usually better if you are working full-time simultaneously. Is this the case for you?

Thanks...

I'll try once more after a month. If nothing works I'll apply for 2013 fall. Thanks for your help. I'll re-post on this thread once I take my GMAT again.

Well first of all, I think if you haven't written your applications yet, you are a bit late in the game, and you are much better off waiting till next year. Which will also give you the distinct advantage of tacking another crack at the GMAT.

If you plan on working in the US, then a part time program is not for you in my opinion, unless you have a job there.

For schools, I would say about the 25-45 range is approximately for you (Assuming you don't get a higher GMAT) You can look at Georgia Tech, Texas A&M, Kelly, and others...
what I would suggest is going through the entire list looking at Average GMAT, postMBA employment, employment industry, tuition and salary. This will help you get a a good original idea, and then once you know a bit more, revert back here with your questions.

As for one year courses, you have Kellogg and Cornell, but those are likely out of range, unless you improve your GMAT, and then there are a lot in Europe.
