Profile Evaluation for HBS 2+2 [#permalink] New post 23 May 2012, 05:48
Hello Sir/Ma'am...i would be obliged if you could help with my profile evaluation.


I wanted some advice on my profile and my chances to these big b schools as I plan to apply to HBS 2+2, IESE-YTP and maybe Stanford GBS with a 2 year deferral option....I recently applied to ISB-YLP program and have
I am hopeful that my final year project (topic:Solar Cell-increasing productivity) will get published in one of the national journals... or most probably IEEE.

Do I stand a chance among the other applicants who have a stellar profile and excellent graduation GPA!!

Thanks for your valuable time addressing my query..!

Without a stellar GMAT, I'm not optimistic about your chances at HBS 2+2 or Stanford. Sorry. Your chances are better at IESE. For IESE and ISB, if you have a competitive GMAT, you are probably competitive.

Best,
Linda

A stellar GMAT would be 740+, and it also does no guarantee your acceptance it at these two programs. It would just put you more in the running. The other element that would help is a higher grade percentage. Your community service and involvement are strong with lots of leadership, which is good. If you need the time to study, cut some of your activities, focus on one or two where you have leadership responsibility and devote more time to your grades.

Best,
Linda
