With a score of 730 and quite decent work ex, ISB rejected me twice (without interview). I hope and wish that I'll improve so much next time that ISB won't be good enough for me.

Can anyone suggest how risky is it to go for MBA in US right now, got few admits over there from top 50 schools. But a bit scared to move to US because of the current political atmosphere over there. What is the situation about placements of Indian students?

FROM ISB Admissions Blog: “When you are at ISB , you’ve hit the Formulae 1 Circuit” – Rahine & Gaurav
Business school competitions are a great avenue to test yourselves against the best. Participating in these through the year at ISB can be a very useful addition to your self-development initiatives.

Though competitions aren’t always directly relevant or helpful during placements, they can be a useful talking point during interviews and a way to showcase your willingness to go beyond what’s required of you.

Given the demanding nature of ISB’s curriculum, it can be hard to make time for competitions. One approach that has worked for some of us is to choose competitions that are aligned to our career goals and invest time in events that offer greater learning value. This also helped us stay updated with the economic and political developments around the world , and truly speaking we can now give Wikipedia a tough competition 

Don’t spread yourself too thin. The numbers will be different for each one of us, but try to strike a balance between breadth across a number of events and intensity of effort in each one of them to maximize your takeaways and wins. Trust , you will enjoy every bit of the grind and the pressures to keep up with the timelines. At least, for us, we started enjoying participating and winning . For us , it provided the adrenaline rush to see ISB s name on top of the list across the various national platforms.

ISB is filled with incredibly talented folks from diverse backgrounds, and every competition has varying demands. It is very easy to make the mistake of staying within your comfort zone and targeting competitions with the same set of 2-3 friends. By doing this, not only do you reduce your chances of winning, you also miss out on the opportunity of collaborating with classmates who you may otherwise never have a chance to work with.

A final word of caution: competitions can be intense and involve a lot of hard work. Take up group events only when you are absolutely sure of your commitment to the task. Leaving your team mates hanging and not showing up when the team needs you is completely unacceptable. The bonds that you build with your classmates and the reputation that you hold among your peers are the biggest takeaways you will have in your ISB journey. Do not risk losing it by a show of insincerity and indifference.

Work together and carry forward the glowing name of ISB. There’s no feeling like the winning feeling, and at ISB winning is a habit. So, as the title suggests, you need to believe that you’ve hit the F1 circuit and speed is just a number …

Go break the limits !!!!

ISB gives you the flexibility to appear for GMAT on the application deadline and apply with your test center score report. Though it's always preferred to get GMAT out of your way well in advance (~30 days)so that you can focus on your application completely as GMAT is only a part of your application.

IMO GMAT in June '17 is well in advance for R1 of deadline in September'17.

Hi indian123,

I feel you. You know I was talking to my friend about the same and he told me the case of Baiju. If you don't know, Baiju holds classes for competitive exams (now has an app). My friend attended his classes. During one of the sessions, he said that IIMs rejected him (due to his accent or something - don't remember the reason) and now he is at a position wherein he can reject them. MBA is a medium to achieve your goals into leadership/management roles but not the "only" medium. If you have that potential make it shine through your application and you can be next Baiju.
