Hi Puys!

I am an MBA aspirant, interested in MBA-Finance. I currently have a GMAT score of 680 but retaking it with the hopes of reaching the 730 mark. Here goes my profile: 

Xth : 86.0%

XIIth : 95.0%

B.Com(H) from SRCC, Delhi University : 70.3%

Overall decent ECAs. No volunteering experience though!

by Fall 2016 (when I hope to start my MBA), I would be completing 4 years of work ex in BlackRock (Asset Management) - working for a US Federal client.

I am targeting only US B-Schools, namely Darden (Virginia), Anderson (UCLA), Kellogg (Northwestern University), Kenan-Flagler (UNC), Ross (Michigan) and Johnson (Cornell). 

Can someone please evaluate my profile, keeping these schools in mind?

Any kind of help would be appreciated!

Hi Manali,

Hope everything is well at your end!

Best of luck for your GMAT, make sure you get 730 to hits your goals. Good number of experience you hold to apply for US market, and I really appreciate for the ground work for short listing of B-schools.

But you have done B.com (H) and I think that is the 3years bachelor's degree and you have totally 10+2+3 = 15years of degree and there are couple of universities in US, they won't expect 15years education. Please mail for admission directors to confirm, weather you're eligible to apply or not.

You may also try Chance of B-school tool http://goo.gl/KtXXeG to gauge your chances for top B-schools.

Hope this helps you.

Cheers!!!

Debater: The average amount of overtime per month worked by an employee in the manufacturing division of the Haglut Corporation is 14 hours. Most employees of the Haglut Corporation work in the manufacturing division. Furthermore, the average amount of overtime per month worked by any employee in the company generally does not fluctuate much from month to month. Therefore, each month, most employees of the Haglut Corporation almost certainly work at least some overtime. The debater’s argument is most vulnerable to criticism on which of these grounds?

Please provide explanation.

UK mein to ye problem hai hi hai..visa waali. Australia emigration is not too difficult. I am looking at Film Distribution and Marketing and emigration is something I am not really seriously considering. If I get into Queen's, nothing like it but I know that it is difficult so I have to keep my options open. I can give my GMAT again and can cross 700 because I just decided in December to give my GMAT and 640 was a good score in 2 months prep for a filmmaking student who hadn't touched Maths in 5 years since school. Not giving excuses but I know its not the best score but I am not of the view to wait another year. I can always do a research degree 5-6 years down the line once I am in that country. For me, this degree is not just to get into the rat race but for gaining quality education and probably joining my family business 5-6 years later in case I don't see good prospects. There's a different angle involved, though I am equally motivated to pursue this degree.

G'd morning everyone. So, let me ask you a question. I have an application on my desk (I actually do, I'm not making this up), which reads like the following:

"I aspire to become a manager. I want to become a professional with thorough domain knowledge and be on top of the latest technologies"

What's wrong with it? Any ideas? Any suggestions? - Let's start a discussion...

Hi, so i'be been preparing for GMAT for about two months now, and am facing multiple problems when it comes to sentence correction. I've undertaken coaching from a reputed training center, but I still cannot manage to get a decent score even on practice questions.

Q.1) Is there a way, to swiftly identify the best possible answer choice without having to apply the multiple rules of grammar?

Q.2) Is there a magic remedy?

Q.3) Does studying 'Parts of Speech' actually going to help me identify the best answer choice in under 02:00 minutes?

Really appreciate all your help here!

Generally, I see SC as puzzles that most of us would have solved in our childhood, where two pictures were given and we were required to spot errors in one of them. In the same way, to solve SC, I always try to spot error first rather than jumping on options directly. once the error is spotted, it becomes easier to find the right option because by then the question is already half solved and now what I am looking for, i.e. what fix is required. This technique worked with me and suggested by one of my verbal teacher.

Rupali Goyal @Goyal.Rupali 80

Also, in case of modifiers, skip the modifiers while reading the sentence so as to check what the sentence means or if it has correct construction or not. In case if the modifier itself need to be correct then it is helpful to check to what phrase/noun/pronoun the modifier is being applied. Sometimes, it is modifying the two things, which lead to ambiguity error.

Also tried my hands to sales/ marketing./BD but all recruiters keep on asking u don't have MBA deg nor sales & marketing or BD exp. So interested to do MBA.

also on e more important thing i realized while doing my current job is that as your work exp goes on increasing sometimes you lack imp skills like people management ( larger work force) to ave some financial knowledge, leadership skills. so I want to upgrade my these skills. so MBA

Now most imp my acad is not great . I think its below average.

Hi @kiratsingh93! WIth your current profile, you have higher chances of making it to an MiM program vs an MBA. But GRE may not be the best choice, given that US does not have enough options in MiM and European schools would prefer GMAT. 

All the Best!

I have no clue about GMAT and ISB. I have heard there are 2-3 cycles of admission process and so hope to hit the first cycle to increase my chances. Any tips?

I have questions like: 

How much do I need to score and what all should I have to make a good (acceptable!) profile?

Hey, yes ISB has 2 admission cycles. For Aug 2016, you would need to submit your application by October (not sure about the date) and you are looking at obtaining a 720 at least in the GMAT if not more which I would suggest you give by latest by end Aug and work on your application thereon. I hope this helps. Thank you
