Sorry, but that's NOT true.

Almost 80% of internationals are able to recruit for jobs within the US (within the top 16 schools - I dont have any data beyond that). This is from publicly available employment reports.

I was merely trying to state that things could get worse - ofcourse they could get better too!

EasyMBAAdmit - not sure where you are getting your info - it's definitely incomplete I can assure you.

I think anyone going to the US for an MBA should atleast entertain the idea of recruiting outside the US - Asia/Middle East


Couldn't agree more. Majority of my Indian friends who just graduated from top 10 US B Schools have recruited outside of the US. Great jobs (read MBB, bulge bracket IBs) still but just not in the US. Only 2 that I know could get a similar job in the US.


Probably should have made the scope of my analysis clear - My sample size includes Indian nationals in particular amongst all international students (since the person who asked the question initially is Indian) recruiting for top consulting jobs (MBB) and/or top IB firms who graduated in the last six months.

I was in your shoes a couple of years ago when I needed MBA Admissions Consulting services and guidance from current students and alumni but always faced the problem of either the admissions consultants being too expensive to afford or not knowing the right student/alumnus from my target school who can guide me. I graduated recently in Dec 2017 from INSEAD and realized that this needs to change and democratizing the consulting process makes much more sense. This is why I have started Easy MBA Admit - An Admissions Consulting service for the people, by the people. Why should you be interested? Here's why:

1. The most affordable admissions consulting service with services starting at $100 (mostly to cover operational expenses) - because we believe more in paying it forward and helping future MBA aspirants rather than making huge profits.

2. All services offered by recent alumni/current students from top B Schools like INSEAD, LBS, CBS, Kellogg, Stern, IESE, Wharton, etc. motivated by goodwill and who were in your shoes not too long ago and hence know how best to position your application.

3. Proud to say that so far we have had a 100% success record at placing aspirants in their target schools. Examples include INSEAD, LBS, IESE, HEC Paris, CBS, Wharton, Kellogg, Stern, NUS, NTU and more

4. Get your Free Intro Call (https://www.easymbaadmit.com/services-1/free-intro-call) with no obligations attached. If you do book any of our services we have a money back guarantee in case you don't like the service.

I'll chip in with my 2cents in support of that.

Just to give an example, one of my past applicants who is graduating from MSU Broad this year is going to join McKinsey. MSU Broad doesn't sound like a feeder b-school, but this guy still made it. According to him, if you do a focused and sincere job search, finding jobs within the US is not that difficult. At the post-grad level, this advice will stick for all.

Are there any Average Joe Indian Applicants here?
Feeling flustered with being the only guy with a GRE score in this cruel 770 GMAT zone

Anyone applying to schools in the range 20-50?
No?


My profile outside my GMAT is pretty average. I'm applying for the first time this year, if I reapply next year, I might aim for some 20-50 progs


I just saw your post and though I am late, I wanted to ask you how it feels to have an admit from a top 10 school.

Is there a considerable dip in the number of Indians making it to top 10 in US this year? Are there any stats readily available?

We can pull something up at the end of R3, but I am curious. What makes you think that?

The decision tracker implies so. Also, that is the sentiment with a lot of applicants with whom I discussed personally.

So I just checked Ross to see a sample. For the class of 2019, GMAT Club had 16 reported admits from India. For this year's class of 2020, I already see 19 reported Indian admits. I honestly think the numbers should be comparable, but perhaps we can do some simple number crunching to see if the odds have toughened as an Indian applicant. Looping in our dataguru Narenn.

Thanks! Give me a day to analyse decision tracker stats of Indian applicants this year.
