Hi Ishita,
It's really difficult to evaluate your chances based on the info you've provided. It'll be more helpful if you could share more details about your profile including your work profile, extracurricular, work/non-work achievements, pedigree, leadership experiences, post-MBA goals etc.

On the GMAT front, aim for as much as you can. You have good enough time to prepare for GMAT. I would say aim for 720+ as min. This would also balance off your less than stellar acads.

I would recommend you to target 740+, given your extra curricular is not so unique.

Hi,

I am an ISB aspirant Could you please evaluate my profile and suggest me on the areas on which I will have to work on, in order to enhance my profile.

Indian/Male/26 years

X - 82%
XII - 93%
Grad - 81% (B.Tech- Civil Engg)
Pursuing PG in Project Management from NICMAR (Distance learning)

Work Experience - 4.5 years
I am currently working as a Project Engineer for Knight-India. It's a UK based Project Management Consulting firm. I have been a sole Project planner for a 4 million sft Commercial development with a Project Cost Rs 800 crores. My key responsibilities involve project scheduling and tracking, Resource Planning, MIS (Management Information System).

Prior to joining Knight Frank, I was associated with Sobha Ltd and Aparna Constructions, where I've handled the similar function for the Residential developments of size 5 lakh sft and 2 million sft respectively.

Accomplishments:
-Achieved 15th rank at the University level among all the Colleges affiliated to JNTUH.
-Presented technical Papers at various reputed Universities like IIT Madras and Osmania University.
-I was a representative for the Civil Engineering department to conduct various technical events at college under ISTE (Indian Society for Technical Education)
- Won a couple of medals for presenting technical papers and projects during Graduation.

I am planning to take GMAT this June.

The biggest concern I have is the lack of Extra Curriculars. Could you please evaluate my profile and suggest me about how to enhance my profile to get into ISB.

I've heard that ISB prefers candidates from diverse backgrounds. As I am from a non-IT background, Do I have any advantage as such??

Im thinking of resigning my job and focussing on GMAT, as im struck at a 600 -650 level and its becoming very diffiicult to focus on GMAT preparation with my current work hours (Its a 6 day work week and i'm working almost 11 to 12 hours a day) .I'm aware that the break from job would have some negative implication on the admission process, but is there any way to offset this ??
