Profile Evaluation Urgently Needed

Post Sat May 05, 2012 10:05 pm
Hi there,

I am a final year B.E. student from Delhi, India doing my Engineering in Polymer Science and Chemical Technology from Delhi College of Engineering (one of the top 10 engineering colleges in India).
I recently gave the GMAT on April 24, 2012 and got a total score of 740 (97th percentile) with 50 in QA (92nd percentile) and 40 in VA (89th percentile).
Before typing in any information which gives details about me, I guess it would be better to post my Resume, as it would probably give you a fair idea about my profile.
The biggest issue bugging me at this point of time is the absence of GPA system in my college (we are just given a percentage at the end of each of our 8 semesters), so please give me a workaround for this problem.
If I go for an MBA, my preference would be ISB-India, Duke, Chicago Booth; basically any college in the top 25 list from Financial Times (http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/global-mba-rankings-2012) would do.
Also, I have absolutely no problem with MIM courses, especially the ones in top B-schools in Europe, such as HEC, ESCP, Insead, LBS, LSE, etc. On the other hand, I am really starting to like the idea of going to HEC or ESCP or Insead for an MIM!!!
Please evaluate my profile and guide me as to what course of action I should take: Should I wait for 2-3 years work experience and then apply for MBA OR start applying this year itself for MIM courses?
Please ask for any information that you feel is missing in my Resume, and I will be prompt to reply.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks a ton there Jon.

You have helped me a lot by removing my doubts. Now I would be able to think more clearly and with a wider perspective!!!

Thanks a lot again...

With what you have written, then yes, it totally makes sense for you to aim for an MiM.

I think that with your numbers and your two job offers, you make yourself a solid candidate. I would add another two to three schools to your list though, to ensure an acceptance, and widen your range. One thing that would help you even more though, is if you can secure a position in the industry of your choice BEFORE you enter your MiM. Since you already know what you want to do, why not start already? Of course either of your other two jobs are great!

When it comes time to writing your application, you will need to think about how to fit your job choice into your goals (but no need to base your job choice on your goals.. as goals are easily tweaked)

Hope this helps!
