MiM HEC Paris Profile Evaluation [#permalink] New post 06 Jul 2011, 10:01
Hi

I recently concluded my GMAT and got a score of 680. Quants = 48 ; Verbal = 34
My extra curricular activities are moderate, nothing exceptional yet nothing too minor.
I (will) have attained a First Class degree from a top 10 Engineering Institution from my country. The GPA is 6.73/10 but the college grading system is tough and a 6.5+ GPA entails a First class degree.

1) While I know my GPA/GMAT are not top grade, what are the chances that I could make it to MiM,HEC Paris on its basis for 2012 intake?
2) If the risk is too high is it advisable for me to retake the GMAT? I have a definite feeling I could improve at verbal.
3) If not the HEC Paris, what are my chances for ESSEC or ESCP, EMLyon and Skema through the SAI?
4) Does it matter a lot whether I apply through Autumn Session(GMAT 700+) or Winter Session(GMAT<700)?

Any insight from anyone would be very highly appreciated.

Thankyou.

You didn't mention when you graduated so I don't know whether the MSc in Management programs make a good choice: this program is aimed at recent grads with little to no business experience. I will say that your GMAT and GPA are both compared to your peers: in other words, if you have "nothing exceptional" in your background, then you could use a little boost from your GMAT/GPA. Both of yours are coming across as pretty average (yes, the 6.73 is taken into the context of its being from a tough foreign institution), so I would suggest retaking the GMAT.

Your GMAT seems low for ESSEC and HEC Paris, but it seems that EDHEC is fine with it (I believe that ESCP has its own separate admissions exam that you must pass separate from the GMAT). Once your GMAT is in their range, I do think that your analytical abilities outshine your interpersonal skills. I would recommend that you highlight that interpersonal side of you as well.
