I wrote GMAT few days back and these are my unofficial scores.
GMAT-710 (QA-50, VA-37, IR-7)
1. PGDM from Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Lucknow (CGPA 7.2/10)
2. B.Tech from National Institute of Technology (NIT), Allahabad (CGPA 8.1/10)
1. 3.5 years Pre-MBA work-ex at Steel Authority of India Ltd as a Jr. Manager
2. 1.8 years Post-MBA work-ex at Asian Paints as a Manager
Take on GMAT, actually I prepared for CAT 4-5 years back and scored 99.5%, so it was not a problem.
I feel that 710 is not a great score, and I can reach upto 760+ levels with a preparation of 2-3 months. But, I am looking for admission into a PhD course, and am not sure about the cutoff levels or the relevance of GMAT score for the same. Thus, I would be grateful if someone can guide me regarding this or refer me to a proper forum where someone may answer my concerns.

Tip for Applications:
Describe a defining moment in your life, and explain how it shaped you as a person. (300 words maximum)
This question is an attempt to get to know you, the person. The previous questions are professionally focused. Use this essay to present a different side of you. Don't write about work and your professional goals here.
Tell a succinct story of that defining moment. What happened and what was the impact on you? How has that event influenced you going forward? How is your behavior, your life different because of that moment?

I was looking up university and I wanted answer to one of my questions. Is switching between different campuses of the same university after one year of MBA possible? If yes, what are the main criterias these universities have? There is one university - University of Illinois that has two campuses - one at Urbana champagne and second at Chicago. If I seek admission in Chicago campus this year, how easy or tough will it be to switch to the Urbana Champagne campus after an year if I have a good GPA in first year?
Hi. I'm targeting GMAT for the year 2016. Would be very much obliged and advice on this.
20 years old, Male
Grad: 79.8% (till 7th Semester)
B.Tech in Electrical and Electronics,IIIT Bhubaneswar
Work Experience: Still in engineering last semester
Extra-curriculars: Nothing of importance
I am planning to take the exam in June/July
Q1: Do I stand a chance to get into any one of the top US B-Schools with this profile? What should my GMAT score be, to this end? (CAT 2014: 95 Percentile (Just for some reference))
Q2: Any possible areas where I can strengthen my profile?
I am here for a profile evaluation. Please help.
Below are my details-
10th- 82% CBSE
12th (Science stream)- 74% CBSE
Bsc. (General) - 67% from Delhi University (off-campus college)
Extra Curricular- Nothing under my belt
Work Experience- 5 years but have not reached any managerial position
I am 26 currently and the main reason I am looking for an MBA is a career change. I was earlier thinking of appearing for CAT but it seemed I was too old for it. So I think GMAT is the one for me but as I have never been active in extra curricular activities , have no volunteer work experience and a very average academic record I want to know can I get a really nice college from where I can expect giving my career a very very good head start with such a profile through GMAT. If yes, what is the minimum score required for that. Also I am working somewhere and I am confused about whether to leave my current job and focus entirely on GMAT or keep my job going as a backup and start preparing simultaneously. I know that my profile is below average and there is nothing positive in my profile but I have been thinking (and only thinking) about doing an MBA as I can this can lease a new life to my career. Also I want to go for a year program rather than two. Please suggest if that will be fine or not career wise.

Q1: Do I stand a chance to get into any one of the top US B-Schools with this profile? What should my GMAT score be, to this end?
Q2: Should I take up volunteer work to improve on that aspect? Feels like a cheat doing so but yea, what kind of work would stand out?
Q3 (Somewhat less related): How exactly do Indians cope with the exorbitant expenses overseas? Loan and then re-paying after getting a job? How easy is it to get?
