Mr. Civil Engineer Turned IT Analyst

About Me:

I am a small-town dreamer, who dreams of achieving sustainable growth for all as my focus. I consider myself a jack-of-all, and a king-of-none person. I am a civil engineer by qualification, an application developer by profession, and an environmentalist by heart. I have been working as a technology analyst for a leading American Bank for the past 2 years.

This is the first time I’m planning to apply to a B-School. My aim is to get into one of the top B-Schools, so my options are open. Please assess my profile & let me know about the areas I should focus on and improve in order to get into a top college. If my profile seems to be considerably weak, please let me know the safer bets to apply for.


Undergrad School: A Premier Engineering College in India

Undergrad Major: Civil Engineering (with an Honors Degree)

GPA: 8.96/10

GMAT: 640

Age: 24,  Ethnicity: Asian or Indian

Extracurriculars: Good research exposure including an international research exposure, Helping the underprivileged students of my locality with their academics and helping the freshman in my college with their academics, and I played an active role in the different teams that organized my college fests.

Work History:

Title: IT Analyst - App Dev

Industry: Technology

Company: Fortune 500

Length of Employment: 2 yrs

Big Life Wins:

I have spearheaded the development of an application that would improve the customer’s experience with banks by collating various smaller applications used by customer service agents into one bigger application. This would reduce the customer’s waiting time & help the Customer Care Executive to easily access a wider range of customer details.

Post MBA Goal:

I feel that an MBA from a top B-School would be the most viable option. I wish to spend my initial post-MBA days in the US, working for any of the big names in the industry, and after a few years, return to India, & contribute my fair share, to the society that helped me become what I am today.


Target School: Stanford GSB

Status: Open
