Since this is just a shortlist and not final admit one cannot say that yet. Also the sample size is good but then folks who are active on gmat club usually score higher in GMAT than those who are not ( there is a positive correlation for sure) :)

On the contrary competition in R-2 will be stiffer. So avg GMAT is R2 will be around 10-20 points higher than R-1 admits/shortlists. Not to mention shortlisting is holistic so even in R-2 you will have applicants called for next stage but have just 670-680 GMAT.

If you fall within avg work-ex(7-10), international work-exp(2), and are male than 720+ is decent score. If work exp is less than 7 years or international work exp is less than 2 years you will need higher scores. If female then avg score drops by 20 points as seen in R-1 shortlist candidates as well. I dont think being an IT is a big disadvantage. If you look into placements almost 60% of the class took roles in IT industry. So if that is where they can place you, they will end up taking people with same industry background. But being from niche profile will work in your favor because any school will love some diversity!

Hope this helps. Good luck!

Hello Everyone

Congratulations to those selected for interview. Best wishes!!

I have 10+ years of exp (IT + home venture).

I want to understand how to go about writing responsibilities and achievements.
Should it be a story kind of a write-up or bulleted points with an explanatory note or two with each point.

Any tips will be very helpful and appreciated. I am super nervous!

Thanks a ton!

Hello PGPX

Thank you for your time in advanced.

First Let me introduce myself.

I am a Mechanical Engineer with 8 years experience in Product Design. (Design of metro Trains & high speed trains ) including approximately 18 months in UK & France.
Currently I am working in UK for Bombardier Transport, Derby as a Work Package Leader for the East Anglia train design team.

Professionally, I have taken up some challenging jobs & have some significant professional achievements (Handled pilot projects, Bagged a multi million dollar project last year for QUEST global, Crucial in developing talent pool in rail domain for QUEST Global, Have been awarded more than a dozen times in my career for performance, Experience of handling client from 5 different nationalities, Worked from client locations for more than 4 years of my career including approximately 18 months in UK & France and led team of 5-15)

Career Goals: Want to study in India & work in India. Aim to work in top management positions in infrastructure development companies and later to work for Govt of India. I aim see myself play a vital role in building a Infra-structurally developed India. My Motto: Learn from the best & better them.

I have extracurricular activities such as working for flood relief in Odisha during engineering (Twice), organizing annual cultural events for 1000+ attendees (4 occasions) , Organizing annual state level badminton tournament (2 occasions), 1000-2000 Km Bike ride (multiple times) and some on & off work with few NGOs (not committed).

I have a below average academic background.10th (83%), 12th (49%) & Btech (63%). (I know, It will take a lot of explaining!!!)
I have a GMAT score of 690 (Q50, V33, IR6, AWA 5) (1st Attempt)
Considering my poor academic background, I am planning to retake GMAT in order to give myself a fighting chance. But due to work pressure I am unable to devote time for GMAT preparation.

Any Data or information on these below questions will be immensely helpful to me in order to get a clarity.
I need an insight on how much a below average academic background such as mine can hamper my chances at IIMA?
What is the acceptance rate at IIM?
Considering my profile, do I have a fair chance even with 690?
I have only 4 weeks before the IIMA & C deadline & I prefer to utilize this time for application. But I dont know how close to a IIMA/B/C admit I can get with a GMAT score of 690.

I will be glad to provide you any more information that will help you HELP me.

Thanks in advance
Regards
Alok

I started filling the application today and found that AWA score doesn't go up to 6, it stops at 5.

Is this an error for everyone or it could be a browser issue? I tried it in IE and chrome, both.
