Ask a Consultant! - GMAT/GRE Only

The GMAT section's been growing rapidly over the past few years but I'm sure you already know that. Unfortunately, it's becoming tougher for individual contributors to keep pace. Fortunately, a lot of consultants have been coming up to help! So as...

I heard that majority of the top 30 B-schools in USA, charge excess of 70 lakhs (tution+living) or even more. If this is the case, then I believe it is impossible to go for MBA in USA. My budget is 30-35 Lakhs max. Can I suggest some colleges that have good curriculum and placements of international students.

Hi Struggler@usadude05 

You can look at external scholarships -institutions which give aid to Indian students for higher education abroad. You can also look at taking up an education loan which can help you with around 15-20 lakhs.

Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any further queries and we would be happy to advice. Wish you the best. www.manyagroup.com

Sir , I would take the GRE test in march ... i need guidance on how should i  prepare for the test.  I have prepared for CAT and have a sound knowledge about the quantitative and verbal aspects ..what should i do in the last 3 months to get to a score around 325 in the GRE test in terms of which books to refer and how should i go about it??

Dear Avinash, First & foremost do not commit the blunder of comparing CAT & GRE; both are totally different where CAT is a quant based test GRE is a verbal based test. So prepare thoroughly & separately for GRE otherwise you may not get your desired score. 

I have been working in TCS since 2011 and intend to give GMAT in 2015 . My 10th , 12th and grad results are as mentioned below :

10th :  78

Independently lead 3 global accounts on which I have been able to increase the revenue from $25k to over $600k within just a year. Accountable for client servicing, delivery and revenue generation. . Brought down cost overheads and directly contributing to the bottom line thus increasing overall savings from 13% to 22% in FY13-14'. Absolute saving of more than 1.5 million USD. .

The only drawback I see is that I have hopped 5 jobs in the span on 8 years - will that be a problem? Goals : Post my MBA, I want to move into Strategic Consulting or Product/Brand Management ( More inclined towards Strategic Consulting though).

Emory Please guide me with the selection and would like to go with a college who is more liberal in terms of scholarships and can provide upfront GA/TA. I have decided only on the above mentioned colleges till now. I'd rather want to go with full scholarships as basically applying for round 3/4/5/rolling - what are the odds? Along with the above, I want to move fast and planning for a 2015 admit so I know for a fact it is going to be challenging but I just can't wait for another year before I get too old for a B School. Thanks in Advance J

Networking is the key, if you are looking at placements.

Manya Abroad @ThePrincetonReview 542

If you get through a good college, you should not worry about your placements. Sooner or later, everybody gets the job they want. To get a good job, while you are at the B school, you should focus on an all round growth with good academics as well as extra curricular performance. Develop key attributes like leadership qualities, team skills etc. For now, focus on your target score of 700+ and get going with your gmat preparation. Do let us know if you would have any other queries and we would be happy to help. (www.manyagroup.com). Wish you the best. 

Hi guys ,

Is it advisable to take GMAT closer to the year when we want to pursue education or it is ok for the score to be 4 or 5 years old.?

@geethanjali ok, if you say so:).

Good luck with your prep.

Manya Abroad @ThePrincetonReview 542

Hi Geethanjali,

As long as the score is not more than 5 years old it really does not matter. But having said that there are some universities specially few Indian ones like IIM A etc which want a GMAT score which is not more than 2 years old. Foreign universities generally do not have any such requirement.

Wish you the best

Your GMAT is good and your GPA is also strong, you can easily apply to your preferred b-schools with scholarship, and you can also predict other competitive b-schools like UNC, Kelley, and so forth. But it depends on your over all profile, and it's competitive too. Suppose if you target you strengths, weakness, goals through a strong application, then you have a good chance.

You may also try Chance of B-school tool http://tiny.cc/o0lipx to gauge your chances for top B-schools.
