Hi Team,

Below is a short description of my profile -->

- TOEFL - 101
- Bachelor of Engg. - Information Technology - 67 % (University of Mumbai)
- Currently having 3 yrs of Wrk Ex with an IT MNC, will be having around 4yrs of Wrk Ex until next august
- Worked with the consultancy team for core business processes
- Have one month of International Experience - Singapore
- Undertook couple of social responsibility events at work.
- Published 2 technical papers in college and won several technical paper presentations at state and national level.

AIM --> To pursue an MBA which helps me to get in to consulting and strategy, thus aiming to do an MBA in somewhat general mgmt.

** Financing the MBA is somewhat a problem for me, thus want to select colgs with trustworthy ROI.

I have shortlisted the colgs according to my profile for an full time MBA, it would be really great if you could give your view on the admission & ROI of these colleges (i.e whether I will kand up with a decent salary)

1) Orflae Colg of Business - Cal Poly State University.

2) University to San Diego - School Of Business Administration.

3) University of San Francisco

4) San Diego State University

5) North Carolina State University - Raleigh

6) Belk College of Business - Charlotte - North Carolina

Will be waiting for your kind reply.

Thanks & Regards,
Lakhan Khushalani

What are the chances you can retake the GMAT and get a higher score? Consulting is a brand name game - the higher you can go, the better!

Hi Bhavik,

Thanks for your reply !

But the thing is this was already my second attempt, on my first attempt I had scored a 580 and this time after taking lot of leaves from my office I managed to reach a 620. So I have no hopes of getting a better score. Also my main aim is to get an MBA degree and work in the US, so I would be more than happy to get an MBA from a decent college which helps me to land in job with a decent salary.

Regards,

If that's the case then the schools you've listed are good options. They fit your profile from a GMAT perspective. From a career perspective - I'd suggest you speak to as many students and alumni with your background as possible to make sure what the school's website says is actually the case. Sometimes the on-the-ground reality is a bit different!
