All,
My pursuit for the MBA degree started on this wonderful forum started by the amazing Eric. Without a decent GMAT score on the GMAT, I would not have applied to and got admitted to one of the top programs in the world.

For this, I have to thank all the wonderful memebers on this forum!!

Special THANK YOUs to:
* Eric (I really enjoyed reviewing your study plan and your witty quotes!!)
* Stacey (Manhattan GMAT - the ultimate source for the fantastic Grammar book)
* Lisa Anderson (Stacy Blackman Consulting for helping me with deciding on a school)
* Amy (Stacy Blackman Consulting for answering a question about a delicate situation that I faced about my recommender)

You have all been very generous to me in answering my questions.


I would like to share my application details with you:

Program: MBA-PT

Area of interest in MBA: Strategy and General Management
GMAT: 690, Q48/V37, AWA 5.0
GPA: Undergraduate (B.E First Class with Honors from an university in India) Graduate (MS EE 3.1/4.0) from an average US University
Work experience(WE): 8 years in the Semiconductor/Telecom industry at a Fortune 500 Company in the US, 1 Year in India
Nationality: Indian/Green Card holder
Age: 33 at Matriculation
Gender: Male
Extra-curriculars/community:
- Multiple volunteering activities over the years

Schools applied to:
School 1: UT Austin Evening MBA R1 PT
Status: ACCEPTED

School 2: Chicago GSB Weekend MBA PT (Rolling Admissions; submitted in January, Deadline in June)
Status: Dinged

School 3: NW Kellogg Saturday MBA PT (Submitted 2 days before the deadline in April)
Status: ACCEPTED and Matriculating

Good luck and wish you all the best!
