12> Multiple key performance award winner for outstanding delivery efforts.
13> Team member for automation & cost-saving programmes in my organization.

J2S2019,

Even though you hail from a pool of over-representative applicants, you have a decent profile.
However, you need to expedite the application process.

Pros:
    International experience
    Lead a team
    Takes Initiatives
    7-years work exp is great to show how you have created a difference in the organisation

Cons:
    Hail from a pool of over-representative applicants
    GMAT score can be better to offshoot the over-representativeness.

Since the cohort is small, ESMT is notoriously selective about prospective students. Thus, showcase your strength NOT ONLY in terms of what you have done BUT ALSO in terms of what impact you have created.
It's all about "WHY YOU?"

I wish you all the best!

PS: Take every feedback with a grain of salt since you are the most informed person about your profile. :)

Thank you very much for your kind reply.
I need a suggestion from your end, is it a better option to have re-appeared for GMAT & apply with a more stronger score?
please do respond.

It depends on two factors -
    1) How soon can you get a better score?
    2) How good are other factors apart from GMAT?

J2S2019, I believe that you have about a month's time since Early decision deadline: R1 is on 2nd April 2020.
Usually, the over-representative applicants should put the best foot forward by R1-R2 deadlines.

However, drop a line to the AdCom since they would be the best people to guide you on this intricate matter.

Hey Mate Xylan
thanks a ton for the kind reply.

By AdCom you mean to say i connect to the admission officer of ESMT?
if yes, i think i will find the email address in the attached Brochure at the top of this page.

Thank you again & have a good time ahead.
cheers

Hi!

On the application form for ESMT there are two options that look to me as equivalent:
"Recommendations" and "References".

Are they equivalent? "References" is marked with a green dot, implying it is optional.

If they are not equivalent, how should I interpret them?

I have searched ESMT's website and found this link which provides a few of the student clubs that they have:
https://degrees.esmt.berlin/student-lif ... anizations

Are there any more student clubs that aren't listed in this page? I am particularly interested in strategy and management consulting clubs.

subhsngh, Usually this error occurs because of browser unresponsiveness.
Try the following -

    1) Clear out the cache.
    2) Restart the browser.
    3) Login with a different browser

Best guess - The issue could be because of an on-going login on other web-sessions.

PS: Save all your entries before initiating the steps.

LuizAngioletti, the current students or alumni would be the best people to reply to this query.
Try reaching them out through different online podiums.

Meanwhile, I'll let you know once I have an update.
