In Conversation with Gurpreet Singh who scored a 770 on the GMAT…

 
 

Could you tell us about your background?

 
I did my schooling from DPS Chandigarh and my undergraduate in computer science engineering at IIT Roorkee. Post that I’ve been working in a company called Arista networks. During my college days, I was also associated with a band where I was the bassist and also did backup vocals.
 
 

What was your motivation behind an MBA?

 
I’ve seen people working with me who are software engineers for 10 years. When I see myself five years down the line, I realize that I don’t want to be in such a technical role. It’s good to have technical expertise, but it’s always best to go one step further and shift into something else. I don’t see myself coding 10 years from now. I want to be part of major decision making.
I had a start-up plan with some other people which didn’t work out because of legal issues with regard to cloud sourcing in India. This too motivated me to do an MBA to understand things from a broader perspective.

How do you plan to start your application process?

 
I haven’t particularly thought of colleges, but I think you have to consider colleges which have people around your age group. I’d like to go to a university where there is diversity in backgrounds- a multilingual type of society. I plan to research on the graduates from these colleges and check where they’re headed to. It’s important to check if you want to be where they are or if you want something different.
 
Check where you see yourself 5 years down the line and then figure out which B-school suits you best.
 

What do you want to branch into after your MBA?

 
I would go into something that deals with logistics or operations. Although I’m good at finance, inherently I know that my math is a little dicey. I like organizing and thinking things through – I feel I’m good at that.

What do you plan to showcase in your application?

 
In college, I was part of Students In Free Enterprise (Enactus), an organization where you help people develop their business. You give them an idea and help them sustain it. Socially, I was quite active in college in co- curricular activities. My technical experience is pretty good since I’m from IIT. I need to grab an opportunity in something where I can leave a mark and hopefully I’ll have a profile ready in a few months’ time.

How did CrackVerbal help?

 
 
Initially, I was quite confused about what I should do about my GMAT prep- where do I start from, which material do I use and so on. Arun’s classes were a big boost and helped me develop a complete plan as to how to go about with my prep.
 
 

Every concept was made crystal clear in class! I never felt the need to read any other book after attending CrackVerbal’s classes.

I would like to thank CrackVerbal for its excellent classroom experience as well as its fool-proof student support system. In my opinion, the study schedule/plan provided by CrackVerbal is more than enough to crack this exam!!
