Hi,

I am Vikram from Mumbai,India .
I was wondering what you thought of my chances of getting into my target schools: Harvard,Wharton, Stanford or Booth based on my stats:

I am an Indian male 26 years old
GMAT- 730
MBA-Finance(2011) : 3.0/4.0
B.E (IT)(2009) : 62%
XII (2005) : 71%
X (2003) : 78%
CFA Level III Candidate.
Extra curriculum activities : Mountaineering, Field Sports, Have a started a NGO , which is into Education and Family upliftment. NGO has impacted life of more than 100 people in India since its inception in 2009.
Letter of Recommendations from 3 CFOs of Large Corporates are expected.

Work Experience: 3 Yrs in Leading Financial Services Company with a focus on Debt/Mezzanine funding.Part of Credit Appraisal team.

Do you think i am strong candidate for these schools,given the fact this is my second MBA attempt within 2 years of passing out from the first one.

Thanks
Vikram

What does Wharton Consider while accepting a candidate other than his GMAT score? Lemme put it this way... The Candidate profile for entry to Wharton.


Pretty broad question. However, it's important to start broad. Start here:

Do You Have What It Takes To Get Into A Great School? | Poets and Quants

Not Wharton specific (don't believe Wharton is unique that way either), but is a good starting point.

660 is too low. Even for a military candidate. Re-take would be my modest advice.

Hi,

Been close to 6 years since I last posted on PG. Never thought I'd be on this journey again :).

Submitted my app for R1 a few days back.

My profile:
6 years of work-ex across Fortune 50 healthcare and mobile majors in marketing and in a sales strategy role in a high growth education SME.
UG: 72% , Bachelors in Management Studies
PG: 3.22/4.0 at the country's top-ranked marketing communications school
GMAT 700, Age 30/M
Some decent EC and leadership roles in community projects, awards at college and at work
Would love to revive the action I saw and felt on PG as someone who'd taken the CAT so many eons ago 😃
