Apologies for such a big post but was necessary to explain my situation..
- Your qualifications:
Lets start from my schooling..I have always been a rank holder and scored above 90 continuoskly for 12 years till senior high.
Cleared XII with 92%..
I was the head of my student council team responsible for discipline and ethical conduct in the school.
SPORTS- i was the captain of my school table tennis team and also won a solo gold medal in inter zone state competition.
GRADUATION:-I did my graduation from Delhi Open University and M.com from IGNOU reason being I opted for Chartered accountancy course and you are not allowed opt for a regular College.
- GMAT score:- 730
-Social circle- Founder of an NGO helping orphan kids those who wanna study but are deprived of resources. our weekends are secured for fund raiser activities and admission enquiries for these kids in different schools. We have around 70 active members.
Founded an online portal to help kids those who feel stressed and are looking for some good words to get encouraged in those hard times before or after their exams.(kinda low profile but a gr8 satisfaction when a kid says i feel so much relaxed now)
- Work Experience- Soon after my senior high at an early age of 17 i joined PWC as a professional assistant and there along with my graduation completed my CA.
I have a work experience of 4.5 years.
Being a professional assistant soon after my first year i was given the responsibility of a field incharge and handled a client with a turnover of 20 crores.
In the third year i was far more experienced on several listed clients i audited than the new recruits and actively participated in their training and grooming.
After I became a CA i left PW and joined a local small firm reason being i wanted the exposure in Taxation field coz dat was the field i didnt put my hands on and here i learned a lot about that.
I wanted to be a chartered accountant coz I wanted to be good with numbers.
My carrer aim was to get an expert knowledge of finance and different markets and then head towards the ultimate goal of joining a B school.
My career goal has always been to go into marketing and advertising field, coz its something that turns me on, if i can say and this is what i love.
Markets, branding, customer behavior,etc.
After MBA i wanna join a FMCG company as a marketing head, and wanna explore new markets and understand customers globally.
There after 4-5 year i wanna set up my own marketing cum advertising venture as good as ogilvy and there i need to combine my knowledge of both FINANACE AND MARKETING.
Major drawback in my profile is that i never went to a regular college.wanted to go to SRCC, didnt make it and others didnt interest me coz they dont provide a practical approach to study which i crave for..
So it was no point for me to waste 3 year of my life in and undergrad school with no value add.
Logics i followed was Read- Apply-Learn, which i practically followed at PW.
Today I feel it was kindof a harsh decission coz it has really affected my profile and its a red flag in the eyes of adcom.
Secondly i always gave importance to work and there we had late working hours and we never get time for any extra studies so i scored really low marks in my first two years of graduation but third year i bucked up a bit and got 70 Aggregate with 90+ in Marketing.
need a candid feedback from you about the situation and also which schools should i aim for and not set an unrealistic target of Wharton, but i really wanna go to Kellogg..
I want a school which can provide a competitive career in marketing.
Thanks a lot for being patient..
