Dear Jon,

I was really happy to read your article on how a high GMAT score can help in the admissions process. I am however having difficulty deciding which colleges to apply to. I would be grateful if you could give me some idea about the same. This is my profile:

25 yrs old, Indian female, post-graduate in pharmacy with a 9.8/10 CGPA from a premier institute in India (8.8/10 in graduation from another top-ranked institue in India), however current work experience is 17 months in the field of patents. Participated in a lot of sports through out college and at work, have 3 patent applications in India and in the US to my name and am a registered patent agent in India. GMAT score 750 (98 percentile), verbal: 42, Quant: 49, AWA: 4.5.

Thanks!

Key Points:
1. It should be a natural step on your way to your long-term goals
2. Ideally it should have some connection with your past experience
3. Your path should be logical, realistic, and end with something impressive, yet attainable.

Please describe your short-term professional goals and how do you plan to achieve them (pre-MBA) (200-word limit)



How does one approach such a question... What are the key points to be covered?


Thanks
