I'm in a very panicked situation as i'm writing this. I have my GMAT day after tomorrow, i.e., 31st October 2014 and i still don't have a prepared list of the 5 schools to which i'll be sending my scores.
In brief, I'm a female CA with almost 3.5 years of experience and a regular BCom (Hons) degree from DU. I currently work in MIS FP&A profile in HCL Technologies Ltd and prior to this, have worked with Kobe Steel Group (a Japanese steel giant) in Finance. Shortly, I'll be joining a different industry in MIS FP&A profile only. My goal from an MBA is to gain entrepreneurial and management skills that would help me move towards more of a general management role or maybe consider doing something of my own. In my practice GMATs so far i'm getting scores in the range of 660 to 700.
When i initially consulted a few people, i got the following names - ISB, IIM ABCL, XLRI and SPJIMR. ISB happens to be my preference. I am leaning more towards a one-year course but a good two-years course is also a feasible option. Also, I'm willing to consider an international MBA too. The names that have cropped up so far are NUS, Tuck,etc.
As a confession, i'm from a purely technical finance background so my knowledge about admission procedures of any school except ISB is next to none. I'd like to start my MBA in 2015.
Please kindly guide me as to what schools I should choose on my test day. I will choose ISB but about the other four choices i'm confused. Request you to please help!
Thanks in advance!
If I attempt for the exam in Feb/Mar 2015, and apply for the 5 colleges as per the standard GMAT exam practice, would the application apply for the 2016 fall admits or 2015 admit for which it'll be too late considering the deadlines? Would it be advisable to give it later or Feb/Mar 2015 would suffice for the 2016 fall admits?

Just wanted to understand the process for applying to ISB school. THe last date to apply in cycle 2 is 30th November, so should we need to apply with the GMAT scores right away or can we give the exam sometime later during the year and then submit the scores for the application.
Thanks in advance.
What all things are required on the exam day ?
I'm new here and have been browsing GMAT threads for some time. From other posts what i have understood is leaving job and giving GMAT is a strict 'no' 'no' ! I had a decent profile but i guess out of job for past 2 years made my profile weak. Still i leave it to you - the experts, the aspirants who are in this GMAT business, to have the final say. Here's my profile. Please recommend if i should go ahead with GMAT test and try my luck at B-schools -
10th standard - 87%
12th standard - 80%
age - 30yr
Qualification - BE in IT with 73% and MS from BITS Pilani with 75%
Experience - 6 yr in two reputed software companies as programmer. Left job in 2013 to prepare for civil service.
I have the doubts -
1. Considering the 'weakness' of my profile, would it be a wise idea to try my luck at ISB Hyderabad? What are the chances and how can i make it possible?
2. To apply in Indian universities, what is the best time to write GMAT ? I started preparing Manhattan books, will that suffice or should i follow some other material too ?

Hi, I had a really bad GMAT experience. Got a score of 480 Q 44 V 15. I had scored well above 590 in my preps. I'm little demotivated by this score. Can you suggest what are my possible options with this score. I'm looking for MIS course of US state universities. I have a good academic record and a work experience of 3.7 years. Seeking suggestions for my next step!
