Hi guys,

For those who have interviewed, how long did it take for the school to send you the details of the interviewers after you received the confirmation of your accession to the interview stage ? It's been almost a week and still have not heard from them. I know on their email they say that it's supposed to come "in the coming weeks" but still I was expecting it to arrive quicker.

Thank you guys !

They took time to assign interviewers for me as well. Almost 2 weeks. Do write to them if you want to expedite

­Hello Everyone! 

I am originally from South Korea, currently working in Canada targeting top EU MBAs with HEC being my first choice.

I went to McGill University, with low 3s GPA out of 4, and scored 625 in GMAT FOCUS (well balanced, DI 86th, Q 76th, V70th in percentile) . I passed CFA Level 2, am taking Level 3 in this August. 
I also passed CFE - Canadian CPA Exam. My GPA for Graduate Dipoloma is high 3s. 

Work Experience:
Big 4 Audit 2 years in Montreal
Big 4 Transaction Services - Deal Advisory M&A 2 years in Montreal
Top EU Investment Bank - working in Department of Finance - oversee all North and South America's operation, risk, as LOD1, and working on Bank's Global Finance/Accounting and Change project. I am located in Montreal, but working closely with NY, Paris Headquarter, and Asia. 

Have lots of extracarricular activities while I was in McGill, and currently I am TA in McGill (for 2+ years) and head of social committee in my current work place. 

I believe my work experience and international exposure could give some weights.

I also was told that there are only 2~3 MBA students from HEC Paris per year, so I shall be considered as minority - and most of them do not have any international experience, only have been working in Korea etc. So, I believe I hold some changes even if my GMAT is just on average or below average when I spoke to admission consultants. I am considering HEC Paris, as currently I am working in French bank. 

Please provide me some advices and thoughts. I was wondering if I hire good admission consultant and formulate competitive admission essays, if I have a shot.

­gofhddl9494 Believe it or not, you have a fantastic profile! I get the sense that you're aiming safely with HEC, but you should definitely consider adding some other top-tier programs like LBS and INSEAD. As a South Korean working in Canada, you perfectly embody the immersive international career experience that top MBA programs highly value. The upward growth trajectory is also quite evident in your career. Your GMAT might not be your strongest point, but your consistent academic orientation through Finance certifications really stands out. As long as you have a strong grasp of your subject matter and plan to leverage that knowledge in your post-MBA career, you should be confident in your chances.

I would also add here that EU business schools look at the GMAT sectional split holistically. It's clear that your verbal score might be slightly lowering your overall score. Are you fluent in a third language? If so that's a fantastic strength that can counterbalance your performance on the verbal section. Beyond this, bring out the key transformative experiences from your personal and professional life and examples where you demonstrated leadership capabilities.

I am happy to advise you further

­Hi @gofhddl9494, 

just to build on what Aanchal just said, your GMAT score is competitive for HEC Paris, and even for INSEAD and LBS. I have personally seen applicants with 595+ GMAT scores being accepted, and with profiles much less international than yours.

The INSEAD MBA 24D class has a total of 6 Koreans. So, considering that the HEC class is smaller than INSEAD's, 2-3 Koreans make perfect sense to me. 

To your point about most Koreans at HEC Paris not having much international experience, I agree but to a certain extent. Business schools get many applications from Koreans working at chaebols (e.g. Samsung, Hyundai ...) and other non-chaebol big corporations (e.g. Kakao, Naver ... ). While it is true that most won't have experience living abroad, many will have global roles working with overseas subsidiaries and will have gone frequently on international business trips. From a b-school perspective, these types of experiences also qualify as international experience. During my time working in Korea for Samsung Electronics, I had this type of role and I witnessed many of my colleagues going to top business schools. But I agree that your experience studying and working in Canada will set you apart. 

So, yeah, I would definitely go ahead and apply to HEC Paris as you do have a very good shot. But, unless for you it is HEC Paris or nothing (which doesn't seem to be the case from what you're saying), I would also apply to INSEAD and LBS, as Aanchal suggested. 

I am happy to discuss further. Feel free to reach out directly at alex@arleeconsulting.com

Warm regards
