Hi All, Need a bit of advice. I am a graduate with B.Tech in ECE(62%) , 12th - 73%. and 10th - 76%. I am currently working with an IT company based in Delhi as a Systems Engineer. Total work EX is of 28 months(approx). Planning to do my MBA this year. Need to know which all colleges would accept my profile if get a decent score of 660-700 range in GMAT.

Apart from acads, i am Sports Enthusiast. Started playing Table Tennis at district level in 4th Class itself. Then moved on to Badminton for next few years and played football at District level during 9th-12th Std. 

It all fizzled out in college as i  am a graduate of Amity University where they were more than 20k people so the competition was really stiff! 

Apart from sports i was a core committee member of CSR department in my previous organization, wherein we had several tie-ups with the NGO's to help underprivileged kids with books and stationery and other stuff.So was part of the regular drives and camps held in office and co-ordinated with many NGO's during my tenure.

Please suggest what all colleges should i search for which would suit my profile. looking for colleges in Europe(specifically Germany) and Asia. As far as the area of interest is , i am intrigued about the field of Marketing Industry as i see myself inclined towards the process of it and the various stages it goes from branding to promotion to sales and on. I feel that i would be good in it.

Moreover i consider myself good in communication skills as well as soft skills. So i am planning to change my stream all together from a techie to Marketing.

Thanks in Advance.

Here are a few tips you can use to develop a strong theme for each MBA essay:

. Answer the question. You may go into the essay writing process with a clear idea of what you want to write about. That's great - but if you don't answer the given question, the adcom won't be impressed. When choosing a theme or main idea to write about, be sure that the one you choose answers the essay question.

. Stay focused. A good essay is a focused essay in which each paragraph directly relates to or supports the theme. If your subsequent paragraphs don't relate to or support your theme, then either your theme isn't strong enough or your paragraphs aren't persuasive enough and need to be rewritten. Cut anything that isn't directly relevant to your core idea.

. Provide examples. Convince the reader of your main point by using concrete examples that prove that your theme is logical and credible. For instance, if you are writing about the importance of careful listening to leadership, you should give examples from your experience that show why listening is important or the benefits of listening to a leader. Weave your personal story of listening and leadership into your discussion of benefits. Or better yet, make it the focus that exemplifies the lessons and benefits of this particular leadership attribute.

. Don't forget your conclusion. Wrap up your ideas and tie them with a big bow in the last paragraph or sentence of your essay. This will reinforce your theme and bring your essay full-circle.

Nodnat @nodwin 32

I would suggest that you look for MiM courses if targeting outside India.

All serious GMAT takers on this thread - what is your take on this 


Pagalguy Prep. Team for GMAT - PaGaLGuY
Pagalguy Prep. Team for GMAT - PaGaLGuY
Is there a team of people on PG preparing for the GMAT? Something similar to the CAT dream team? It seems that GMAT is the 2nd most popular exam on this forum(the number of comments on each thread) after the CAT and a lot of people want to prepare seriously, but there is not much motivation or internal competition among the people to crack the GMAT.

The colleges will depend on a number factors viz academics, quality of work experience, GRE scores, budget. Taking GRE in April will be late as it will reduce the options drastically

Manya-The Princeton Review @ThePrincetonReview 547

Hi Purna, 

April for an international student(I am assuming your friend is an international student) is too late since International students are expected to join the campus for orientation in August itself. If you apply in April your admission decision would not be out before May or June and it will most probably be late to apply for a visa. For MIS in New York you can look at: Fordham University, Pace University , SUNY Bufalo, NYU etc. In California you can look at: UC Berkeley, Santa Clara, San Deigo State, CSU-Fullerton etc.Hope this helps. www.manyagroup.com

Hi Vishnutej,

First off you are a bit late for most of the good universities. You have a very good profile but unfortunately most of the financial deadlines which fall on 15th Dec are gone. You can still look at Northwestern, Syracuse, UT Dallas, New York University.Let me know if you would require any further help.Wish you the best. www.manyagroup.com
