 Best bet is to score 99.8 in CAT.  Excellent CAT scores does count for a lot especially in IIM C and FMS.

Hello everyone,

I'm writing this post since I needed suggestions on the colleges to apply.

My only hindrance is my below average academic profile.

10th 2007 - 84.20%

12th 2009 - 61.80%

Took a drop year and joined engineering in 2010.

Graduation 2014 (B.E. Pune University) - 55% (rounded off)

I'm very confident my CAT 2015 score will be around 140-160 marks. The percentile estimate is 93-97!

Work Experience - 5 months. Did not want to quit but had to for a personal reason.

I have a quite good extra-curricular profile. Been a part of clubs and societies, participated in sports at the regional and Kendriya Vidyalaya national levels, learnt a foreign language, black belt in karate etc. Let us just say it is very decent and above-average.

Also, I have an NISM certification in mutual funds since I help my father with his financial consultancy. I'll be appearing for the CFP module-1 in January/February. I'm pretty sure I want to do my MBA in Finance.

Can anyone suggest me the colleges that I can apply to? Do I have a decent chance of getting into an AAA or an AAAA grade college?

Thank you!

Graduation( Bsc.IT)  57.48%

I had  ATKT in one subject in 5th semester and i cleared it together with my 6th semester.My ATKT result arriving just 15 days before my 6th semester result. Which means i cleared my graduation in  stipulated time of 3 yrs.

Hey bud! Let me give you some clear idea. Some of the best bschools doesn't consider your past acads like-IIFT,SIBM,IMT,MDI,SIBM... And one more thing its all about how you can convince the interviewer that you are the best student for their college. So work hard play harder.
