@alok114 You will benefit a lot from creating a career plan and a roadmap for yourself. It will provide you clarity on whether you really need MBA? Also, for any good school you would require a coherent story for your short-term and long-term goals. If you want to discuss, happy to help!

If you choose Finance as your specialization you need to target a higher GMAT score of 680 or 690. You can look at universities like Boston College, Rotman, UBC Suder, Rochester Simon etc.Team Manya

HI, thanks for your replies @prepzone  and @ISBmantra.com . A few more queries if you have the time: I had a few B schools in mind considering my limited work experience and past record of similarly profiled seniors. For eg. how is Red McCombs School of Business, UIUC school of business and INSEAD? I wanted to shift streams from operations to consultancy/general management? How good are these institutes and do i  stand a chance considering my current profile? Really appreciate the swift responses on this thread. It's very heartening!

US the average fees is about 60-70 lakhs. Scholarship is completely university specific.Parameters can change every year.Also scholarships are highly competitive. If budget is a constraint , you can look into universities in India/Singapore/Canada which would fit in 50L of budget.A few US universities can also be looked into.Team Manya

Xth: 78.8%

Btech: 66.7%(Computer Science)

Work Experience -  4 years(reputed MNCs) as software Engineer.

Hi Abhinav, hope you are well. Please note that the best way to start the GMAT process is to take a MOCK GMAT test, unprepared and see how you score right from the onset and then take a call if you need external tutorials and what additional materials you would require for the same. You can always start by looking at the Official GMAT guide. I hope this helps. Thank you

In my opinion, first you should be sure whether MBA abroad fits well within  your career plan. Assuming that it does, you can always start with downloading the mock test (preferably official ETS). Also, you need to then chalk out a strategy by identifying your strengths and weaknesses. Hope this helps.  Good luck!                                                                                                                                                             - Bhavya Kumar (MBA '09 Chicago Booth), Chief Mentor careerdefiners.com

hiii..puys! I have started my preparation days back.. the problem is i cant carry the book to office, so if u have any PDFs please share.

Does applying in the second round(which have deadlines of Dec-Jan) cause any problems in terms of admission chances ? Should a student strictly target round 1 deadlines only or is round 2 okay too ?

Hi Aditya, it said popularly known that candidates have the best chance to apply in R1 and R2 sees a drop in acceptance rates however, you should apply when your application is ready rather than submitting a less-than-stellar one in R1. I hope this helps. Thank you

Hi Everyone, while preparing for GMAT, I had the opportunity to attend a seminar which helped to get an estimation for funding through loans. My list of B schools consisted of two ambitious and 3 safe choices. My initial plan was to ace the exam and try for scholarships and/or take loans for the entire amount. Now, I realize it would be impossible for me to apply considering the huge sum, therefore I am looking at GRE or equivalent programs for management like MIM. Please note, I have completely lost interest in coding. Here is a summary of my profile:


Xth: 75% (ICSE board)

XII: 86.5 (best of 4 ICSE) 76% overall

Btech: 7.95 dgpa out of 10

Work experience: working as a software developer from 18th june 2013 till date in an MNC. I have also been trying to get into business analyst roles. I am going to learn Spanish soon enough. Please advise on what could be a possible course of action, if I want to make a career transition to Management Consulting or strategic consulting,

Hi, Hope you are well. You have 2 years of work experience which is at the brink of your application for an MBA program if you look at Sept 2016 hence that is what I would recommend for you. MIM is for 0 - 2 years fresh graduates which I think you will pass by Sept next year hence I am unsure if you should look at that option. Either way you are looking to write the GMAT for an MIM / MBA if you want to transition into Mgt. Please note to go through schools' deadlines for both programs as they are in mid sep - mid oct for most top schools hence start your GMAT prep and Applications prep asap. Alternatively, if you are looking at Sept 2017, you have plenty of time and in fact I would highly recommend getting 4 years of work exp. under your belt. With your aim I would look at a 720 + in the GMAT and some of the top schools globally for an MBA or MIM program. I hope this helps. Thank you

Hi! My profile is as follows - 

10th - 89%

12th - 62.67% (Quite low here)

Graduation - 77.33% (B.E. Mech)

I am a relative fresher (just started working-been 15 days now). I wish to pursue MIM courses or something similar as I do not intend to work for more than 1 year. I gave CAT 2014 with a 99.27% and managed to convert quite a few good colleges as well. However due to some personal reasons, I have decided to work for a year and then pursue my further education. I will be giving CAT again this year while attempting GMAT for the first time. Would love if someone helped with a few queries of mine!

1. I gave 2 mock GMATs and the score was around 730. I know I can do much better once I get accustomed to GMAT's format. What score should I ideally be targeting with my profile to give myself a good chance ? Also what are the colleges that I should target ?  

2. How does the new 'Cancellation of scores' policy of GMAT work ? Do we get to see our score before the cancellation option becomes active?

3. Lastly I'll be applying for Counselling. Any recommendations ? Need some class who will start guiding me right away and not after my actual GMAT score comes! 

Would appreciate a response!

Hi Aditya, hope you are well. You not only have a brilliant profile but scored extremely well in CAT & the MOCK GMAT. Usually 720 and above is quite a good score but yes you can aim at as high a score as you like in your case. There are plenty of brilliant schools that have the MIM / MIB program such as St Gallen, HEC P, LBS, ESADE, ESSEC, ESCP an the likes and you can look at applying to these for sure. You could also look at Duke for their 1 year program for fresh grads. Prep Zone would be happy to help you take things forward, please send me a private message with your contact details so we can talk further. Thank you

Hey I'm no consultant but a couple of my friends went for MIM from HEC Paris and they said the job scene is horrible there and you really have to slog it out.
