@robinreji12 , The information you have given us is not enough for us to gauge your profile well. So with this limited information, I would only say that you should work another 1-2 years before you apply to b-schools. Most US/ European b-schools accept people with 4+ years of work experience (people with lesser WE also get in). You are lacking in quantity.  You also don't have a GMAT score, which you will require for any b-school where you apply.

Kindly help me to clarify my queries

@venumalli Even with a 720 GMAT, your experience is on the lower side and its much to close to your previous MBA. You might not be able to justify the need for a second MBA so soon after the first one. The GMAT score is NOT a concern but duration of experience is.  Wait it out; you might be able to consider more schools too with higher chances of financial aid. Good Luck and God Bless!!

Thank you @Mansie DewanDewan, kindly suggest me some way to sort it out and how to get financial aid...if not what will be the idle experience in my case

Mansie Dewan @MansieDewanConsulting 2.2 k

@venumalli Wait for at least another year or two. Later, you will be able to easliy claim that the first MBA did not help you progress in your career speedily and did not help you relate theory to practical experience. If you say the same thing now, you can easily be counter questioned.


i gave GMAT and scored 550, i will be writing GMAT again in Nov but i am thinking of leaving my present job (2 years work ex) in the next month and join my brother's business(a startup of 1 year in interiors)

I am taking this decision because i plan to write CAT this year as well. Will this decision impact my application getting shortlisted if my GMAT score improves particularly in ISB?

@surbhi213 If you are targeting just 650-700... I think you can probably do it on your own! Give a mock and see where you stand and decide accordingly!

Best of luck!
