Hi,

I have GMAT score - 640 (47,34, AWA-6) 9+ years of IT consulting experience. Spent almost 7 years outside India in multiple countries as Banking software implementation consultant. Good academics. No national or international recognitions. Have managed implementation teams of size 40. Can somebody pls evaluate my profile for Olin MBA - 2014?

hi guys,

I am planning to apply for OLIN 2013 Fall. But my GMAT is not very string.

Profile is:

640(44,33), 7yrs IT exp, Infy+Rave, Acads-ok, EC-not great

Interested in Finance in general.

Any scope to get in?

Olin's class average GMAT score is pretty high at 698. keeping this in view, your scores are on the lower side. In fact the 80% range for GMAT is 640- 750. So your scores fall at the lower end of the spectrum, something you can avoid being an Indian IT male.

Hi Puys,

Congrats @ Naveed, All Others admitted.
Applied in the last round of Olin on 12th May, interviewed on 22nd May and admitted on 4th June for MBA class of 2014. Have been told that I am the last international to be admitted, so am closing the door I guess. Have submitted my tuition deposit of 1500 $ and waiting for my I120.
Since I'd be able to reach "St. Louis" right before the start of the program, really need some help from absolutely anyone at all, on the accomodation part at St. Louis. I'd be coming to St. Louis alone, but my family would visit me over the course of the program so looking for an individual 1 bhk accomodation, in 400-500$ range, walkable from the school as don't plan to keep a car. Any first and second yearites - please do let me know if some such accomodation is known to you as a result of class of 2012 passing out.
Profile -
Background - Engineering (Electronics)
WE - ~14 years
GMAT - 770
