Application help - which schools to apply to?

Post Mon Jan 09, 2017 8:52 am
Hi,

I am a Chemical Engineer working as a Business Solutions Architect at General Electric Canada. I report to the Chief Innovation Officer, Canada of GE and lead a team of product developers. I have 9 years of work experience.

I have a masters in Mechanical Engineering. UG from Jadavpur University, India (GPA 4.0) PG GPA 3.6

Have 4 patents and 2 publications in peer reviewed journals. Several conference publications. Received Certificate of Leadership from Crotonville GE and also Six Sigma Certified Greenbelt.

GMAT Score - 710 (Q50 V35). Please let me know which colleges I can target. I am a bit lost on how to proceed? Also, if there are professional guidance available please direct me; I am open to suggestions.

Regards
Subhayan

Thanks for sharing your profile. You have some impressive work experience that will be the strongest part of your application. Your GMAT is solid but if you are looking for the top 10 it will be a bit low as the avg is closer to 730 these days. I don't think there will be any questions about your aptitude so things will come down to how best you position your candidacy. It will be really important for you to highlight ways in which you stand out from the hordes of other applicants. I think your sweet spot will be schools in the Top 10 - 20 range
