Hello Conrad,

I'm an applicant for R3 and needed your advice about the application.
(1) I am facing some delay at getting the official transcripts from my university. But, currently I do have the degree scroll along with the mark sheets (provided by the university itself) for all semesters of my grad. Can I upload these documents with my application or do I need to upload specifically the "transcripts" of my grad course.

In case I get selected for the interview (I hope so), my transcripts would be available with me by that time for uploading/posting etc.

(2) I have secured a 115 in TOEFL this month and I have uploaded the score details on the CJBS application portal. Do I also need to send an official ETS score report to CJBS as well or will mere mentioning of the score and Test Taker's ID suffice for the purpose?

Also, in the upload section, do I need to upload my Test Taker's copy of the report?

For your kind reference, I'm an Indian applicant.

Please advise.

Thanks and Regards,
Abhishek

Dear Conrad:

I submitted the application on the 6th January deadline. Please clarify the below things for me.

a. My application is 'Under review'. I have received the payment received confirmation email but no email acknowledging submission. I hope this should be fine and the admission committee will review the application

b. I realize now that Judge prescribes a certain format for CV. I have submitted a similar one page CV. As I was rushing to meet the deadline, I could not customize the CV to the format given. Will that be an area of concern?

c. I have been following up with my recommender and unfortunately, given his extremely busy schedule he could not meet the deadline. I will have him submit at the earliest. Please let me know if that is fine.

Regards

Dear Cambridge MBA admissions team,

First of all, a big thanks for taking time out to answer candidates' queries!

I received a decision of "Short-Waitlist" post the interview day. In this regard, I had a couple of clarification points to discuss with the admissions team
1. I am curious to know if wait-listed candidates are ranked in a particular order and will our profiles be evaluated with only the next round applicants or also the wait-listed candidates from earlier rounds
2. Will it be advisable to share a fresh recommendation letter from another manager as part of the new information. If yes, shall I request my recommender to mail to the admissions team directly at mba-admissions@jbs.cam.ac.uk.

Thanks for your responses!

Hi Admissions committee team,

I am planning to apply for Sept 2018 intake and had some concern regarding the references that I can use. Following is a brief summary of my profile. Since Apr 2015 I was working on my own startup in B2C space so I do not have a supervisor/manager who can recommend me. I wanted to check if it will be fine to use work reference from my manager in Arista with whom I worked in 2015.

Work Experience
Post my masters worked as an Application Engineer for an investment research company for 1 year. As I wanted to work for a startup joined a cloud networking startup( Arista Networks ) in Bay area founded by Co-founder and initial investor in Google. Worked with the same startup in Bay area for 2.5 years. In 2011 I returned to India and was instrumental in setting up, recruiting and training people for Bangalore office. During my employment at Arista, I was the lead developer for 71xx series of switches, helping and enabling other colleagues to understand the nuances of the chip and also making sure all the support cases related to 71xx are resolved in a timely manner.

Entrepreneurship
In July 2015, Arista went public which gave me the financial freedom to start my own venture, Funrento - An online toy & book library for kids in the age of 2-8 years. I along with my wife started Funrento, realizing the importance of toys in the development of the child. However, toys in the market are very expensive and little ones do not with these expensive toys for very long. Due to some logistics challenges and difficulty in scaling, we decided to close the online toy library in Jan 2017.

Investment
During the last 2 years, I developed a lot of interest towards public and private investment. I exposed and learned a lot about different kinds of investment vehicles in India such as equity, mutual fund, debt and real estate. Investing in equity exposed me to a lot of financial ratios and parameters which were very helpful when evaluating a public company.

Also, I became an angel investor in 2 early stage startups, advising them on the strategy and helping them raise more funds from family and friends

Hello Conrad,

If you have a GPA that is slightly higher than a 3.3 GPA from a reputable school along with the exact median GMAT, will the admissions committee then move on to work experience / recommendations / essays? Or is there a big difference between someone with a 690 vs a 720 that could tip in the later applicant's favor? In other words, will I get dinged for just have a median GMAT score and a GPA that's barely above the cutoff point?

Thanks!
