This topic has 2 expert replies and 1 member reply adikgoel@gmail.com Newbie | Next Rank: 10 Posts Joined 08 Jul 2016 Posted: 4 messages Test Date: October 2016 Target GMAT Score: 700+ URGENT HELP WITH PROFILE EVALUATION!! Wed Jul 27, 2016 1:24 am HI, I AM AN INDIAN OF 27YRS OF AGE AND I HAVE JUST COMPLETED MY CHARTERED ACCOUNTANCY(CA) IN MAY 2016. TILL 2010 MY ACADEMICS WAS DECENT (I WON'T SAY EXCELLENT OR AMONG TOPPERS) BUT AFTER THAT THERE WERE A LOT OF PERSONAL ISSUES & FINANCIAL SHORTAGE DUE TO WHICH MY GRADES FELL. SO I WANTED TO SHARE MY STORY AND MY DESIRE TO STUDY MBA SO THAT EVALUATION CAN BE DONE TAKING INTO ACCOUNT ALL THE PERSPECTIVES. I WAS BORN IN BIHAR, INDIA, BOUGHT UP IN DELHI AND SETTLED IN A SMALL CITY OF HARYANA. I STARTED A SMALL BUSINESS WITH MY BROTHER WITH$30K AND IN A YEAR WE LOST HALF OF THE CAPITAL BUT AFTER SIX YEARS I.E. TODAY, WE MANAGED TO BUILD A 120000 SQ FT OF MANUFACTURING UNIT WITH 2.5MN IN REVENUES. IN INDIA IF YOU ARE MORE THAN 24 YEARS OF AGE THEN YOU SHOULD BE MARRIED (NO LOGIC AT ALL) BUT NOW THAT I HAVE TIME TO PURSUE WHAT I LEFT 4-5 YEARS BEFORE I AM PLANNING TO GAIN AS MUCH KNOWLEDGE AS POSSIBLE OF THE GLOBAL WORLD AND MEET PEOPLE ACROSS THE CULTURES AND THIS THOUGHT OF LEARNING & GROWTH LED ME TO A DECISION TO CONSIDER MBA.

I DON'T HAVE WORK EXPERIENCE IN COMPANIES WITH BIG NAMES RATHER I HAVE EXPERIENCE OF MY BUSINESS, 42 MONTHS OF COMPULSORY TRAINING IN CA AND 6 MONTHS OF UNPAID WORKING IN MY HOMETOWN JUST TO KEEP MYSELF UPDATED OF THE PROFESSION.

I PLAN FOR 730+ GMAT SCORE AND WILL TAKE THE EXAM IN 15/OCT/2016 AND FILL THE APPLICATIONS FOR ROUND 2.

WHAT ARE THE PROSPECTS OF SELECTION? WHAT STEPS SHOULD I TAKE TO ENTER INTO TOP B SCHOOLS?
LASTLY, IF ANY SUGGESTIONS THEN PLEASE DO SUGGEST!!

THANKS

honestly those will be tough to gain admissions for you, especially during the second round of applications. The reality is, your profile (Indian male, auditing) is quite common in the application process, which is why Round 1 will help. You would still need a very strong GMAT score. cheers, alex

Hey Alex, Hope you are doing great. My plans are for GSB,Wharton, Booth, MIT, Columbia or Stern. This is the main issue because I don't know where would my profile stand out and where it would take some time!

I hope this works and I believe your honest suggestions would help me alot with this thing as well as in future.

Cheers
