Hi! I just got admitted to McDonough School of Business. But did not get any scholarship. I already have a govt job here (approx 50k in hand per month) and now I am being counselled against leaving my govt job here and going out and spending approx 80k dollars per year for 2 years. Am being told that job scenario is not good for Indians over there with preference being given to local students. I was thinking of a career in consulting. Please guide. Other option am thinking of is a lower ranked Canada college like York schulich etc with higher scholarship chances lowering my risks. 

Students already in Mcdonough telling me it IS tough job situation for indian students over there right now. Please guide.

Hi, Is it possible that you go on a sabbatical for your studies?

A lot of government jobs do offer an opportunity to take a long break and pursue your education. You can definitely explore that. Besides, what was your GMAT score. You can reconsider taking GMAT again and go for a higher score and therefore get admitted to a top university. This would brighten your chances of getting a job and take away your apprehensions. 

Tip for Applications:

Break down your assessment in the following areas:

1. Work Experience: Industry, Overall Role, Your Impact, Strengths in this area, Weakness in this area

2. GMAT Score

3. Academics: Undergrad GPA, Grad GPA, Stregths and Weaknesses in each area.

4. Goals: Short term and Long term. What Industry? What Position? Major or Slight Career Shift?

5. Extracurriculars: Poetry, Drama, Social, anything worth mentioning outside of the class.

6. Miscellaneous Factors: Failures(if any). Obstacles overcome.

Need some guidance here;I am currently working in a PSU with 5 years work ex. in Construction Management of Large Refinery and Petrochemical complexes.

I am looking forward to a career move to Project Management,Infra Policy Mgt. or Consulting role.

I am aiming  to do a executive MBA (1 Year) from top Indian Institutes like IIM A,B &C .Look to appear for GMAT in Nov 2015.

(MBA from abroad is doubtful due to high expenditure involved.)

Kindly Clarify if the above move is feasible.

Hi Avishek, if you have considered all aspects of making a career move and are sure you want to move up in the role of Project Management, then don't stop yourself for anything and go ahead with giving GMAT. While MBA schools look for an overall profile, you should certainly target a GMAT score of 650-700. Let us know if you have any questions regarding gmat preparation and we would be happy to guide. Wish you the best. (www.manyagroup.com)

You are the one who is going to make it feasible. Along with IIMs I suggest you think about applying to ISB as well....

Bits of knowledge for Indian Candidates:

1. Indicate how your family business experience is far reaching

2. Demonstrate you know more than IT

3. Make the most of your extracurricular activities

4. Don't think all B-schools are made similarly

Hi,

I'm planning to do my MBA from US and I'm targetting Fall 2015 session. I have a GMAT score of 620. My profile:

Xth - 85%

XIIth - 94%.

I'm an SRCC graduate and I have also completed M.com through correspondence.

Work Experience - 40 months.

I'm a little apprehensive because it is a huge investment and Visa also expires if we don't find a job within 6 months. How is the scope of MBA Finance in US? Do you think MBA from Tier II university is worth it? Also, could you please suggest me the best colleges for my profile.

Hi, we have answered your query before but posting the reply here again for your reference. At Manya Abroad - The Princeton Review, we have a gmat coaching center in Raja Garden which is very close to Mayapuri. You will find more information here:

I am currently working as maintenance engineer in an MNC for the past 3.5 years. Due to some unavoidable reasons, I couldn't give GMAT prior to R2 deadlines, Is it better for me to take GMAT in the coming months and apply for R3 or wait for R1 next year?? 

By fall 2016, I would be having experience of 5 years.Will that affect my profile considerably or is it alright to apply with such experience?

My profile summary is as follows :

X-   92.7 %

XII- 93.1 %

Engineering- 7.47/10 from NIT, Nagpur

My sincere advice would be to forget about R1 or R2 and just focus about GMAT. Get your GMAT out of the way.

Hi, you have a very good profile and if you can target a score of 700+, you stand a very good chance of getting an admit from the top business schools. Work experience of 5 years is good as most top b schools prefer quality work ex and the more the better. You should just focus on your gmat preparation and give yourself sufficient time for the same. Start with a mock test and see where you are currently. Take it from there. Let us know if you would have any further questions. Wish you the best. 

hi! i am going to start my gmat preparation can you tell me the approximate score that is required to get into top b-schools(like lsb, stanford,MIT sloan). So, i can start my preparation with an aim of getting that much marks.
