Sorry to hear hvenkatesh. You have a decent GMAT score. Do you think the age factor possibly went against you?

Narenn..

Honestly i cant think of any other negative except high experience and age

Speaking to career teams in different schools, Its hard to show my suitability to recruiters when they have younger graduate at hand.
So unless i am looking for entrepreneurship or company sponsored it is going to be tough :)

Hey all,
does anyone know what the questions for the recommendation letter are?

I plan to apply for R2 and my boss asked me to make a draft of the letter over Christmas as he is on vacation without reception.

Would be great if someone knows.

Ehhh... Yeah it's not exactly ethical.
They're questions about how he perceived you, what he considers your strengths weaknesses, etc.
I wouldn't write the letter myself, potentially you could ask him/her to focus on certain aspects of your profile.

He can draft while he's not connected, and then provide it to you.
Otherwise how would you give him your draft?

What applicants sometimes do is provide some aspects of what they want their recommenders to talk about - e.g. provide a write up that recommender does not copy/paste from but rather providing guidance and examples that the boss then can choose from. Supervisors often are busy, forgetful, manage many people and may not remember the best example at the right time, esp if you had a recent misstep. You could give them a list of your accomplishments, achievements, examples of certain aspects.

P.S. At the end, unfortunately a number of bosses still refuse to write the recommendation letter. Not always out of laziness but sometimes if they have not gone to business school and never had to write one, they are concerned they will screw it up or frankly don't want to learn something new they don't need to, so maybe a little lazy. Anyway, then it is up to the applicant to choose what to do. The AdCom knows that this happens in certain countries more than others and chooses how much they want to value/weigh the LOR's accordingly.

Good luck to you MCTTW in this journey! Hope your boss turns his story around.

Hi Sunaina, I'm pretty sure that everyone who was invited to interview was also invited to an assessment day. Good luck!

TBH, I don't know. I suggest to contact the AdCom directly? I always found them very responsive and helpful.

Best and good luck!

Hi Guys!

I'm a second year MBA at IESE.
My adventure is almost over, but I created a blog where I posted about the MBA experience, my internship and lots of cool info to know more about the school and why to apply, *hem (good infos for your cover letters (wink wink)).

For my latest post, I surveyed students to know what laptop was best for an MBA.

good luck to all!
