Hi Guys,

I am planning to apply to ISB this year..Would be great if you people can comment on my profile.

Total work ex: 8+ years ( 2005 BTech from a reputed institute )
- 5yrs with companies like Infy and RBS
- more than 3 yrs now ( as of july 2013) with analytics consulting start ups
-- so basically a profile with mix of both IT and analytics. The recent experience after I shifted is obviously analytics.
- leading team
- Client facing roles in the past
- worked in solving problems in Insurance, Telecom, healthcare domain.

But...

1) bad gpa
2) bad gmat score : 670 ( 49quant,31 verbal)

Think I can write good essays. All ears for u guys' comment.




I think the most important part for a guy like you is to justify your professional and personal reasons for an MBA at this stage and how will it be a shift from your current career progression. I know a guy who had 10 years of work ex and then made it to isb. His interview was revolving around two aspects
1: need for an mba at this juncture of life
2: since you already have team lead in your profile, i think explaining them your leadership traits would be easier. How do you differentiate yourself as a leader. For a person with 8 - 10 years experience it is expected to have spent sometime in a leadership role.


Hope this helps
Cheers

You have got fair chances.....for any IT applicant i think its always 50 - 50 at ISB.....

Consider the IT graduates from Banglore and HYd region....almost all those who prepare fr mba apply to ISB.....

Its a very large pool...plan your essays properly....

I do not agree to your view. You have enough work Ex...its quality WE. I do not know, why you are having such a reasoning for yourself. If that is the case call the admission committee and explain them the situation. I am sure they will allow you for Early entry option.
They have done this in the case of my friend.

Consider kudos If my post helps!!

Its perfectly fine to apply in R2, last year I also applied in R2 only
You should apply, when you feel you are completely ready with you application. Do not rush through your essays just for the sake of applying in R1.

Hi guys,

Am planning for R2 since i am taking the GMAT only in October.
Would applying for R2 limit my chances of admission, since R1 has 159 applications and R2 has only 33 ?

Any feedback would help :)

Did not get your question :)
According to the ISB, aplying in any cycle does not affect your candidature,
but some how i feel that applying in R1 should be beneficial :)

Having said this, please do not rush through your essays. If you think you are not ready by R1 deadkine, do not submit the application.
I think something around 25 to 30 days should suffice for completion of you application which includes all the essays and recommendations.

All the best.

Hi
If you think u can make through wiht the current gmat score, go for it.
But remember , if u do not get through this year, nxt u ll be tagged as re- applicant...do not let that thing happen to you.
Why not retake gmat and improve by other 50 points......u need to prove ur academics, either thru gmat or thru grad or undergrad

Consider kudos if my post helps!!!

11. ESSAYS: lets say if I do well in them....?
do i have a chance...?? Should I give a try in 1st round, or should give GMAT again and apply in 2nd round.. because I will need some preparation.. cannot take risk of scoring back to back low scores..​


The whole point of each and every scoring criteria is to makeup for what's missing in your profile. I have almost similar number of months workex. We will be on lower than median workex scale for ISB, so remember if there are multiple criteria for shortlisting a score of 640 with a lower side on workex doesn't look good. Now if your essays and application is simply outstanding, the adcom may overlook this. If i were in your place, i would know that i have a score of 640 so i am going to apply but i know there is an r2 deadline too, so i would rather retake the gmat and then apply. If you improve on your scores then your two attempts are already justified. If not the adcom will know this guy gave two attempts and is serious about improving himself, which is a nice quality in an applicant.

Cheers and Good luck with your decision.
