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...

Hi,

PFB my profile for your perusal and comments.

10th: 90.8 %

12th: 76 %

Graduation, Bachelors of Engineering, Delhi: 58 %

Work ex - Working in management consulting since July 2013. Work ex will be around 3 years and 3 months when applying next year

Have worked on international assignment for 6-8 months, mostly in the middle east 

Recos - will get reco from my boss. working for the past 2 years with him, also from a client. one of the top companies in india 

I am targeting school like Kellog, Booth and Sloan. Also, targeting a GMAT score of 750. 

Main question - With that kind of college percentage, am i stupid to target these schools? Any help will be appreciated, dont want to put in way too my effort, only to be disappointed. Really worried cos of college marks.

So you are targeting for 2017 fall, right? Look IVY leagues are LION's its totally on them what they want to eat. So no one can say clear yes or no in Nov 2015. What I will suggest get the desired scores and all of your documents ready by May 2016, so that you will apply to these colleges in early bird rounds which increases the probability of getting selected for specially Sub Continent students. Rest you can also target Europe, last but not the least hire a good MBA admission consultant and specially those who are specialist not the one's who are trying to be specialist. All the best.

Hi,

I am in the process of applying for MS in CS at Stony Brook .

I am facing problem with the SOP . i have prepared a  SOP of around 1000 words but at Stony Brooks , the word limit stated is 500 words . I am finding it extremely difficult to reduce the word limit , max i have been able to manage it to 800 words .

Guys need your help .

Are they strict with the word limit , or 800 word SOP will do ?

Hi @deepika895! The word limit is generally strict, but a 10% deviation is sometimes acceptable. We'll be happy to help. 

All the Best!

@deepika895 - Just a piece of advice on editing, from something that I have seen over the years - Indians have a habit of 'inflicting' too many prepositions (of, in, to etc.) on our writing. Try to clear those up. Also reduce the articles (the, a). 

Cut out redundant sentences or repetitive thoughts or any other sentences that restrict the main flow of the essay.

Hope that helps. submitting an 800 word essay instead of a 500 word essay is definitely not on. As ISB Mantra said, a 10% deviation is doable.

Hi,

10th: 84%

12th: 74%

I plan to take GMAT by 15-Dec-2015. What would be some good MBA programmes that I should apply and what is a reasonably good score for my profile.

I do not want to apply to expensive US programs, unless I get scholarships. My target budget on the Program is 40-50 lacs max.

Hi Prahlad, hope you are well. Most MBAs in the USA will be over 50 lakhs due to exchange rate and since they have 2 year programs, but if you have a budget, please look at Europe, Canada & Asia for MBA programs.

To be honest, its best if I see you CV and take a call accordingly. 

But generally speaking, if you get a 720 + in the GMAT you could look at, HEC Montreal, Sauder, Richard Ivey, Uni of HK, HKUST, NUS, NTU, Hec Paris, IE, IESE, ESSEC, ESADE and the likes.

Hi Swabhab, hope you are well. You have a strong profile and I would recommend you keep a target score of 720 + for both ISB / S P Jain and I am sure you will have a good shot to get into them but please note that the deadlines for ISB is in Jan hence you might want to ensure you have enough time to prep for the exam. I hope this helps. Thank you

I want to know if I can apart from My HOD, Boss etc can also ask a Letter of recommendation from my mentor.

Hi Prateek, You've got a less than competitive score and average work experience for an Indian applicant, you should consider waiting it out and retaking the GMAT. With a better GMAT score, you'd be a strong contender for the 2017 intake. As far as college selection goes, it is important to have clear cut goals. What are yours?

Hello Guys, i'm preparing for GMAT. Today i went to Visu Academy, Hyderabad for Demo. Their course structure seems to be good. Course fee is 25k. Could anybody suggest me, is this institute worth to join for GMAT? If not please suggest me any other good institute in Hyderabad.

Thanks in advance!!

Go for Jamboree if you want to have classroom coaching, Magoosh if you want to have cheap and best online coaching just at mere price of 99$, GMAT prep is good for a overview course. In short go with the specialist of GMAT not with those who are trying to be specialist.

They will look at it as a red flag but they will reconsider if you are able to compensate in other parts of your application then they will consider the same. I hope this helps Thank you
