Profile Evaluation and School Suggestion

Post Sun Oct 26, 2008 6:13 pm
Hello,

I would appreciate a profile evaluation. I am applying to Wharton, Kellogg, Michigan and Stern. Should I also apply to two "safety" schools? Which schools would fall in that category given my profile?

I am planning to specialize in Strategy and Marketing, and return to the industry as a Technology Strategy Manager.
Sorry for the long post.

Personal: 24 year old Indian Female.

Academics:
1. UC Berkeley Extension - International Business Management, took two course so far and received an A in both.
2. UT Austin - B.S in Computer Science with overall GPA of 3.94.
Minor in Business with 4.0 GPA
3. Community College- took some summer course work to transfer to UT. These courses did not affect my UT GPA. But my GPA at the community college is dismal - 2.9
4. Was among the top 3 students in grade X exams (among 10,000 students)
GMAT - 740 (97percentile), Verbal 42 (95 percentile), Quant (92 percentile) AWA 5.5

International Experience:
Born in India, Grew up in Oman, High School Exchange in U.K, Undergrad and working in U.S, brief work experience in U.K.
Traveled to S.E Asia.

Work Experience:
3+ years as a Software Engineer at a Media and Entertainment company.
One promotion so far.

Community Service:
1. Volunteer at a non-profit Women's organization for the past 14 months.
2. International Student Volunteer for a brief time at UT.
3. Did some volunteer work in High School
4. Signed up as a volunteer at an SPCA (will start in December)

Hobbies:
Dance, Painting, Reading

I really appreciate your insight.
Thank you
