sorry i tried to keep it short but turned up a little long :)

I had posted a query regarding MiM programme earlier . Thanks again for the reply. I am also interested in applying to the deferred mba programmes such as the HBS 2+2 and the silver scholar programme at Yale. I am posting my details again ..please tell me if it would be worthwhile for me to apply to these programmes..

im in the senior year , pursuing civil engineering at Indian Institute of Technology ,Kanpur ,India(the top ranked technical institute in india)
my cgp is 9.7/10 (iit has relative grading system , my class rank is 2 i believe, received the academic excellence award from the university)
gmat score: 760
i've been invoved in a number of extra-curricular activities..
i have a senior diploma (first class with distinction) in classical indian musical instrument tabla.
i was an elected member of the student senate(the student representative body of the university )
i was the senior finance executive of the annual technical festival of my college.
i was a student guide in my sophomore year
i have served as a volunteer at leading NGOs a number of times
i have also done an internship at a leading public sector company in india (engineering intern ).
i can speak four languages ...english, hindi ,maithili and little bit of german(did a one year certificate course in IIT)
i was the vice president of the student council(the student body) in my high school.
if its helpful i can take the gmat again amd try to cross 780.

Also I'm a little apprehensive about MiM. I've tried to look up the net but couldn't find MiM graduates who have gone on to get MBA from the top 5 B-schools though I've spoken to some of them and a lot of them seemed to be interested in doing an MBA later on. I realise tht MiM is a relatively new programme but still does holding a MiM degree adversely affect the chances of acceptance in the MBA programme at leading B schools??

I do think it's worthwhile for you to apply to these programs.

I haven't seen any convincing data and am not sure there is any about MiMs applying to MBA programs. I haven't seen anything that MiM's can't apply. And I assume that some MiMs won't need an MBA because they have the MiM.

The key for any MiM applying to MBA programs (or for someone attempting to get a 2nd MBA) is to explain when you apply why you need the MBA given the prior degree. What can't you do now that this MBA will help you do in the future? If you can make a compelling case, most schools will weigh your application on its merits and decide accordingly.

I don't recommend retaking the GMAT. Your 760 is pretty shiny. :-) Congrats.

Best,
Linda

Highest Success Rate for Yale Silver Scholars - Top Early MBA

Talk about selectivity! While tomes have already been written about how selective Stanford, Harvard, and Haas are (see this article from Businessweek and this one from Poets&Quants), few look at the Yale Silver Scholars program which has an acceptance rate that is as low as – if not lower – than Stanford’s 6.8%. Around 200 applicants from around the globe apply for the program every year, and only around 10 make it. If one considers that these applicants must vie for admission to the competitive Yale program without any work experience, the odds are even tougher.

Pretty much the only MBA program of its kind
The one exception that differentiates the Yale program from all others is that while other schools offer direct admissions with certain pre-conditions to their regular MBA programs, Yale offers its Silver Scholars a different path. Successful applicants spend three years at the Yale MBA (against the normal two), the second of which is spent in a full-time internship. Not only does this provide valuable exposure to a professional environment in one’s area of choice, but also acts as a great way to explore the career path that one wishes to ultimately take on later.

There are other, arguably more minor, points too. Students in this program spend the first year at Yale SOM with one MBA Class, and their third year with another. This will lead to more networking opportunities.

Nor are Silver Scholars wanting in terms of professional opportunities. The Yale website lists top-notch firms that hire these students for internships. The big names include BCG, Motorola, Time Inc., and Coca-Cola

Great profile - but getting into both of these programs is going to be tough regardless.

Don't worry about getting the GMAT up to 780 - 760 is good enough.

Get into the best program you can at this point (MBA/MiM) and try to get good post-degree work experience. An MiM with good post degree experience will help you get into a good MBA program later. If you get a good campus job out of IIT, that might help you get into a good school later as well.

Karthik
