Mr. Deferred Indian Engineer

About Me:

Hi! I’m presently pursuing mechanical engineering at India’s most prestigious college, IIT Madras. I’m in my final year and I plan on applying to Stanford GSB for a deferred admit (and other colleges). I have always been someone who takes part in a lot of activities – ranging from leadership roles in college fests to quizzing and water polo!


Undergrad School: IIT Madras

Undergrad Major: Mechanical Engineering

GPA: 9.27

GMAT: 750

Age: 21,  Ethnicity: Asian or Indian

Extracurriculars: Headed part of my college's technical-festival related activities, written articles online (blogs, essays etc.) and taken part in and won many biz competitions.

Work History:

Title: Assistant Under Training Internship

Industry: Supply Chain / Logistics

Company: Global

Length of Employment: 4 mos

Big Life Wins:

I was nominated by my college to represent India as a youth delegate to a former USSR nation. I have won multiple competitions that saw participation in the thousands from top colleges across the country – both as a team and an individual. My essays have been published, both online and offline. I am ranked third in my class.

Post MBA Goal:

I intend to work in a consulting firm with a special focus on operations and industry. I previously interned at one such company and loved the experience. I intend to learn the global practices followed and hope to one day return back to India and start a manufacturing firm of my own.

    Hi Mr. Deferred Indian Engineer, Melisa here from Stratus Admissions. So as a deferred candidate, you have a couple of key things that deferred programs are looking for: strong academic and test performance, strong leadership in university and a sense of what you want to do with your career. I also think your international experience will be an asset to your application, especially since you talk about wanting to do global operations. Did your international exposure at university play into your global operations goals? It looks like Stanford is the only school you plan to apply to – and for a deferred application, that is fine. You can always apply to a larger group of schools in 3-4 years. Remember that Stanford looks for individuals …
