Hey Jon , I am an Engineer from 69th ranked college in India( average) and a CGPA of 7.00. I am preparing for my GMAT now and I am in the process of opening my own plastic manufacturing company . I wish to apply for MBA in 2021. Do I have a shot in Top 10 school? What should be my target Gmat score? I haven't mentioned about my co curricular activities during college. Any advise would be of great help.
Thank You

It's not mandatory.... but let's just say that the principle, "the bigger, the better" applies.

Hey there,
Well I think it will depend on a few things. first and foremost how well you do with your company. Will it turn into a multi-million dollar operation with hundreds of employees? That would be a convincing story!

Obviously, your GMAT will be a vital factor as well. Anything above a 720 is pretty darned good, but the higher the better. Especially among the highly competitive pool of India applications from which you come.

What can you do to improve your profile over the next years???

I would like to present you with a list of ideas, which should help you:


- Definitely do at least one if not real real volunteer works while you are working. The BEST possible volunteer work is anything that has to do with leadership or fundraising, so if you see those opportunities, jump on them!

- Make sure you do the best possible at work, taking any opportunities to lead, to get involved in social events, to advance at work, and remain at the top.

- Likewise try and keep up your life! What I mean is that schools LOVE candidates who have a broad range of activities and interests. So sports, culture, whatever. As always, if it is leadership roles you are taking on they are better than non-leadership roles.

- If you have any interest in entrepreneurship as a side project, it can be good to have that in your profile.

- If you have any interest in politics as a side project, it can be good to have that in your profile.

There are probably more things that I am not yet thinking about, but this is a very good place to start!

Overall things look promising. Right now we are too early to start getting into actual school evaluation, but this is a good start.

While you are at it, I would also suggest trying to visit the target schools, to attend events, and to learn about them as much as possible. This long-term work will pay off greatly when it comes time for you to apply.
Well is it mandatory that My company turning into a multi million dollar company and having 100's of employees is the only way to have a convincing story. Because every company needs a specific time to achieve that kind of level and I think 4 years is a really short span to achieve that kind of growth. Will it affect my chances if I won't be able to make my company into a multi million dollar one??
