Hi, you would have to explain the reason for a second MBA. If it's a logical transition, it's not uncommon for people applying for a second MBA. Let me know if you require a more detailed discussion,

IIMA might be very difficult, since they have a higher average work experience; others seem to be worth a shot, thought your relatively lower GMAT score might be an issue.

12th: 89.6%

Graduation: 7.78 CGPA

Qualification: B.Tech. , Computer Engg from NIT Jaipur

Work-experience: 3+ years by the time September '16 fall batches start. Worked in tech consulting role with Deloitte and currently in Microsoft with a similar work profile.

GMAT: 680-730

Time is running out, so it would be great if someone can share real experiences that can help me take a decision? Thanks!

Did you confirm this from Tuck and Duke? Write to them. A PGDM is different from an MBA degree. If cost is a major deterring factor influencing your decision, then I'll have you know that plenty of top twenty US b-schools offer hefty scholarships to deserving candidates.

However, if an MS aligns better with your career aspirations, then go for it. This call is yours to make. MS in predictive analytics ( Northwestern ) and the MS offered by MSU are good choices in addition to the schools you've already mentioned.

Thanks! Will look these up. They have it explicitly mentioned on Fuqua's website that people with MBAs or equivalent degrees aren't welcome 😞 Tuck accepts applications but we need to furnish an additional essay explaining reasons behind a 2nd MBA (or PGDM)

Hi Rajesh... Your sports and extra curricular activities are super bro. But actually MBA admissions view your talent in Management, decision making tasks, initiative taking attitude ( in your professional career) ,your contributions to your employer, leadership, how you managed the team members and such other activities. They give these things the top priority much more than your extra curricular activities. But you have explained most of your extra curricula's but less of your professional activities. In fact your did not describe your profess. achievements in your Job. You just mentioned where you worked. You need to explain to the schools about ur achievements in your job. Thats what speaks loads about you. So phrase those things neatly and try to explain them in the best possible way to the schools. As far as I know Wharton is a school hat gets some extremely good applicants. You must be able to show your prof. achievements in the best possible way.
