nothing much to write about. I applied there pretty late. Last day of last round. Did'nt had much time to even proof read my essays and eventually got a kick.. SBS does not gives the reason for the rejection. As far profile goes, 27 yrs, Indian, maths grad, IT engineer with a large MNC, a freelance trainer, past rotaract president, 670 - GMAT, 7 years of work ex by the time classes start.

how about u ??

That's an amazing background. I guess we will be competing against each other if applied to the same school :). I am looking for 1 year MBA program hence my choices are SBS, Warwick, Cranfield, IE. IMD is my dream school but I have few weak areas in my profile coz of which I am a bit reluctant to apply..

What was your initial GMAT score ? Which city are you from ??

Do we really have 20 schools on the top for 1 year program ?? Most of the schools on top are US based which offer 2 year program.

INSEAD - in top 20
IMD - in top 20
Cornell - in top 20 (but i can't apply to it as they don't take MBAs)

And You also have ISB to fall back on. Why you want an MBA even though you have one from a top institute in India..?? Where did you get your 1st MBA from ?

Hey Godspeed,
It was in a lighter tone. I hope I did not offend you. I am sure you have great plans ahead.. When is your next GMAT ?
