Candidate:

Mr. Work & Family

About Me:

I want to pursue an MBA in Consulting where I can work on my skills and also acquire new management and business skills. I have good analytical, organizational, and technological and communication skills that excel from being the leader in the field of competence that can move the entire business globally. At work, I work hard to drive the group to meet deadlines and to produce high-quality work in all circumstances. I love spending time with my family look for opportunities to be with them whenever I can.

Details:

Undergrad School: Trident Academy of Technology

Undergrad Major: Bachelor of Technology

GPA: 4

GMAT: No GMAT Yet

Age: 25,  Ethnicity: Asian or Indian

Extracurriculars: Painting

Work History:

Title: Associate Consultant

Industry: Technology

Company: Top Firm

Length of Employment: 2 yrs, 9 mos

Big Life Wins:

I’ve had a chance to lead my team for more than a month in the second year of my consulting career, when my team leader had to go to Australia for a project transition. I think this was mainly because of my better understanding of the projects and because I was awarded the “Project Star” at the very beginning. He gave me all the responsibilities that included leadership meetings, rosters, and client calls that I handled effectively along with my day-to-day work. This was the stage when I realized that I had leadership and team management qualities, too. I was able to drive my team successfully and meet every desired goal within a given timeframe.

Post MBA Goal:

After the successful completion of my MBA program, I would like to seek a position in a company where I can apply my skills and learn something new every day and contribute to the society. Since I worked for clients where I had to give maximum output in less time, I am capable of handling pressure at work-place without hindering performance.

  • John A. Byrne, P&Q Founder & Editor-In-Chief | Odds Assessment: 5%

    It’s really hard to get a sense of your odds at a school as highly selective and competitive as UC-Berkeley without having a standardized test score. It’s a box that just has to get checked. This may be especially important to you because you did not graduate from an IIT but from Trident Academy of Technology in India. In the entire Classes of 2020 at both Harvard Business School and Stanford GSB, there’s not a single graduate of Trident in the mix. Berkeley’s acceptance rate of 17.7% and the fact that its incoming MBA class only numbers 283 students tells me that Haas isn’t going to admit you unless you get a jumbo GMAT score well north of Berkeley’s current 725 average. My advice: Do …

    Hello Mr. Work & Family! Thanks for posting. Krista Nannery from mbaMission here. It sounds like you are at the beginning of your journey so here are a few tips and suggestions for you:
    1. Nail the GMAT. You come from a really competitive demographic. There is, unfortunately, no shortage of Indian male consultants applying to top b-schools. The unfortunate fact here is that one way to stand out is by your GMAT score. I’d love to see 740+ to make this an easier process for you.
    2. Gain more work experience. The average # of years of WE at top programs is four years. I find that for consultants, it’s helpful to to have four years of experience AT application. Also, developing a specific expertise within …

    Very difficult to judge without a GMAT score (or a realistic range). With that being said, your MBA Goals are very general and you don't necessarily need an MBA to get a role where you can learn something new everyday and contribute to society.

    It seems you have a solid resume. Where I think it needs more thinking is on the 'why MBA?' Your response written for post-MBA seems a bit too generic to standout.
