About Me:

I work with one of the biggest technology startups in India. In the last 11 years, I have worked in Fortune 500 global conglomerate, bootstrapped my own startup, and helped build the biggest cab and food aggregator in the country. I have been among the top 1% performers in all the companies I have worked with which has helped me accelerate my career. I am looking to join a 12-16 month program and I am concerned that my GMAT score will reduce the probabilities.

If you were applying to M7 business schools in the U.S., an admissions consultant would not accept your business in good conscience without being honest with you about your (slim) chances of acceptance in light of your age (34) and GMAT score (680).
