MBA Application Process check list : Things that are done

MBA application process is a extensive process having a lot of big and small things to be done. Here I will track my application progress
  • MBA decision
    After much thinking and deliberation, I have concluded that I want an MBA. More on this topic in this post
  • School Research
    I have very strong opinions about the School, location and culture I want to be a part of for next 2 years. My school research has lasted for about 8 months for now and you can see my choice of schools in my blog side bar. More about my ideal school in this post
  • GMAT 
    I have always been comfortable with tests (computer adaptive or otherwise) . I took gmat in August with the preparation of over a month. I scored a raw score of 750 and 6.0  in AWA.
    As it goes, TOEFL really depends on your language skills developed through long time. Can't really prepare for TOEFL but can only streamline your RC skills.
    I just practiced some RC passages and Audio questions and I scored a 111 in TOEFL-IBT. But speaking section really trumped me. Remember that time to prepare and time to present your answer is very short in TOEFL-IBT section and if you don't practice the timing in advance, good results cannot be easily expected.
  • Conveying MBA decision to my manager
    I think this can be one of the most difficult parts of MBA application process. I talked to my manager about my plan to apply to B schools this year and he was supportive.
    Next logical thing is to select and talk to people who will give my recommendations.
  • Recommendations
    I have talked to my current and previous manager who will be giving my recommendations. In case of 3rd LOR I will be getting it from my xtra curriculars fellow.
  • Undergrad Transcripts
    I am an alumna of VTU and it does a pretty good job in sending transcripts to its alumni without requiring them to visit the VTU campus. Its pretty much a hassle free process.
    Here is a Simple Procedure to Obtain VTU Transcripts
    You can get your VTU Transcripts within a day if you can visit the VTU University at Belgaum. All you then need is to write a request letter asking them to issue the transcripts and mail it along with some required documents as mentioned below;
    The Documents that you require to submit are;
  1. The request letter as mentioned above.
  2. Photocopies of your mark sheets of all 8 semesters
