Post Fri Jun 08, 2012 12:57 am
hi all,

gave my gmat few weeks ago..got 720(Q48 V41, AWA 6). Now faced with the question - which schools am i looking at with this score and my profile!?

Work Ex: None as of yet. Aiming to apply for Fall 2014.

ex. by the time of applying to colgs)

Projects:
- conducted an energy audit of a petroleum refinery for 6 months, the observations and sugestions of which resulted in significant savings for the refinery. (Undergrad project)

Could you pls give me an idea as to which schools could i consider "safe" or competitive or stretch with this profile and a 720 on the gmat?? I am very keen to pursue an mba in technology management or human resource development.

Thanks!!

Hello sir,
Thanks for writing.
Reading your request for an evaluation, maybe you are jumping the gun a bit. Your profile looks great as is your GMAT, but I can't really evaluate you without seeing what you have done at work (and I would be skeptical of any evaluation that doesn't take into consideration what you have done and what job you have help and how fast you have moved up). That having been said, you might want to work more than 2 years when you apply. The average for most schools is around 4-5 years experience by time of matriculation. Of course it all depends on what you get done in those years! So it's hard to say.

But whatever you do, try and take as many leadership opportunities as you can at work. That should help you out.
