Hi, Focus on GMAT and try to get 700+...You definitely stand chance of getting into good business schools, if you put up a good application together. Check out the exec programs of SPJ, XLRI. However if you are ok with waiting for an year, you might be eligible for exec programs of IIMs and few other good univs in India. You can spend the next one year in building up a sold well rounded profile, GMAT etc. All the best.

Hi,

I am currently working in an automotive research and development center since past 10 months.

10th - 85

12th - 88

B.Tech Mech CGPA 8.4

Participated in 2 national level automotive competitions (SAE BAJA) and volunteered in the same event after graduating. Had good experience of team work and leadership during the extracurricular activities.  

I have been given some responsibilities at work and I can manage to get decent recommendations 

I am giving GMAT in july. Would it be wise do apply for early entry option this year? Would they really buy my story of chasing automobile passion since college ?

How much gmat score should I aim for ?

@AbhishekNigam26 You should focus on getting a 720+ . Your words echo passion for automotive space and by putting it into right words, the essays can come out really effective. All the best with your GMAT.

No one is going to buy your story of chasing automobile passion since college; there has to be more than just the story; and I think you do have more than just a story: You have 2 national level automotive competitions to vouch for, you have your work responsibilities to highlight and you have your work experience to cite.

So, a let the story get converted into a case study and they will believe that! They have to.

Hi @sahilshr! With your profile, the only good program that you qualify to apply to is ISB. The IIMs ask for higher experience. October 15 is the ISB deadline, so you may start planning your GMAT accordingly. 

All the Best!

TOEFL requirement varies from b-school to b-school. 80-90% of US b-schools do not require TOEFL but some do. Do check before you apply.

Regarding GMAT, If you plan to apply in Round 1 of b-schools, you should be done with GMAT by July maximum in order to have sufficient time for applications. If you plan to apply in Round 2, try to finish the GMAT by September or max by October mid. All the best.

I have 74.05% marks in Graduation from Jadavpur University, West Bengal. Now while creating my GMAT profile what should I write in the undergraduate marks which of 4.0 scale . Kindly help.

@prepzone I will be joining iit kgp mhrm this year. I have 1 month free time with me right now. I will be looking to do phd in HR after 2 years completing the course. This is why I am giving GMAT since its score is valid for 3 years.

Hi!

Profile Synopsis: 

X : 87 XII : 86 

Graduation : 74% Electronics and Communications Engineering, DCE in 2011

Work Experience : Starting from August 2011 to now : 4 years at a semiconductor company/IT. It would be 5 years when the session begins next year.

Extra Curricular : Unfortunately none except from a 2 month stint at a NGO and an award at work. I do not have a well rounded profile.

-----------------------------------------------------

Questions:

1) Do I have any chance with this profile at IIM's one year full time MBA program if I apply for next year via GMAT? Frankly, I am overwhelmed by applicant's profile there.

2) Do I have any chance at ISB's one year full time MBA program if I apply for next year via GMAT?

3) Which international schools can I apply to? I have heard NUS is good. Unfortunately I can not afford schools who have fees Rs 40 Lakhs and above.

4) What can I do in next coming two months in extra curricular(s) to improve my chances?

5) I want to get into product management in software/hardware domain. My work experience is of a individual contributor as opposed to managerial. I have interest in doing an MBA. Do people of my experience get through. (Sorry, this looks like (1)/(2) )

6) Finally. What makes more sense for me? A two year course via CAT or a one year via GMAT. I feel at this point(5 years exp), one year is the way to go. But I am all ears.

Thanks a lot.

@EducationAisle But curiosity is my weakness. So bear one more question of mine. What schools do you mean by Most schools? India or abroad?
