Is my dream of MBA from a good B-School abroad a possibility?

Hi Sreeni,

My name is Sid. Just read your article about GMAT.  I have always been interested in an MBA from a good business school from overseas, but due to my poor profile never pursued that dream.

I am scoring around 95 percentile in mock CATs (this should give you an idea of where I stand in GMAT). I wanted to know which good b-schools can I think of with my profile.

10th – 83.23 %
12th – 54.44 %
Graduation (BCA 3 years) – 63.88 %
work ex – 1.5 years as a Statistical Analyst in a leading software consulting firm.

Kindly tell me what can be done about it and any additional insight from you would be really helpful.

Best Regards,

Dear Sid,

Thanks for your patience. Since your profile is not sound, it took a while for our team to go through the universities that are safe and sound for you to apply. Yes, they are not Ivy League schools, but they are good enough with course, pedagogy and the immediate context. Kindly look at the list of the universities herewith.

1)Central Michigan University Safe
2)University of Texas, Pan America Safe
3)Sam Houston State University Safe
4)Widener University Safe
5)Jackson State University Safe
1) Southern New Hampshire University Moderate
2) Humboldt State University Moderate
3) Lamar University Moderate
4) Tennessee Tech University Moderate
5) Boston College (Carroll) – Carroll School of Management Moderate

The list given here is indicative schools. When you really think seriously and seek mentoring for GMAT and admissions abroad, a great deal of work has to go. Moreover, since you are serious now about your studies and career, I am sure you can strengthen your profile with some serious research and writing in your area of interest.

Since you are scoring 95%ile, push yourself and get a good score 99.5%+ percentile and make it to a sound B-School in India. Simultaneously, keep working for GMAT and take it in the next 6-8 weeks and set the process of applying going for overseas B-Schools.

Mail me on if you need any mentoring and help for preparation for GMAT etc.

Best wishes,
