Expert's post
The big differentiator for reapplicants is always what you have done or achieved in the time since your last application? Sounds like as of last year's cycle, you were light on WE, so you need to be asking yourself what you have achieved over the past 12-16 months professionally which will make you a better classmate at b-school and therefore a stronger candidate. Not only professionally, but perhaps some of the other extracurriculars you listed are new to the mix. These as well as anything personally you have done to enrich your profile or deepen your level of maturity or leadership over the past year will be valuable. Hard to comment specifically on the schools you list without knowing what of it was achieved since your last application, but in general, your profile appears to be competitive. keep in mind, however that even with 2 years at matriculation, you will be coming up 2-3 years short of the average WE for some of these schools, so make sure you speak to the intensity or breadth of your experience in order to balance out the possible pushback on time in the field.

Hi,

Sorry for the delay in replying. But thank you for the feedback. Actually all of the work listed in this request is all since my last application and I have demonstrated much more leadership in terms of leading a team of 4 for a fundraiser (which I am currently doing) and also I have done branding for the International Cleft care centre of the NGO (Logo design plus the brochure which I did in 2 days) and is now used as the standard for the centre all over the world including through our international headquarters.

Thanks once again for the feedback.
