Hello,
I am a current student at ISB. I got admitted in ISB with 10+ years of work ex in an Indian PSU. GMATClub was very helpful in the process. As a payback to the community I am willing to review essays of similar background people, i.e. from PSUs/ Construction etc. who want to join ISB. However, it might not be possible to review all the essays of all the people, so I'll keep the number to 10 with first come first serve basis, provided you are in the above mentioned category.
I might not be available in GMATClub frequently due to obvious reasons. Hence, you may ping me in LinkedIn if you think that I can be of any use. Also, please note that I am not a professional. All I can do is give my feedback and let you know what I did for my essays.
Best part of it is that this is a free service. :)

Regards,
Rakesh

Hi Raul,

With 8 yrs of experience in Merchant Navy, a 680 score may be just enough to get you you (depends a lot of various parameters and how you build your application). An increase in GMAT score is always helpful; think about it, if you think you can study more and increase your score by 10-20 points, go for it. However, if you feel you are done with GMAT (which is also understandable), start focusing on your application and how you can stand out from the crowd.
PM for further queries.

Dear GMAT Juntas,

Hope everyone is gearing up for Round 1 intake. Sharing (post term one) reflections of two current students to pump up your preparation:

1. The real truth behind #LifeAtISB
2. 8 things 1/8th of my MBA taught me

May the force be with you!

Hi raul1706, here's what I suggest:
i) Start working on your application
ii) Re-attempt GMAT by Sep 15 deadline

Apply with whichever is a better score. With a solid 680 behind you, you have nothing to loose.

Merchant Navy applicants usually (rightfully) boast of a strong background in Operations and that works to their advantage.

Make sure the application is crafted well.

[quote="tush1992"]Hello Folks,

I am a current student at ISB. Although the acads pressure is keeping me adequately busy, I wouldn't mind replying to any of the queries you guys might have about the admission process, the institution itself or even about MBA in general. Best of luck to all the applicants!

Edit 1: Letting people know a bit more about me so that they can approach me for specific questions they might have for those aspiring a similar career path.

I am a civil engineer by background. NIT Grad. 3.7 years workex in a government infrastructure company. Function was related to procurement and project financing. Acads in 80s and late 70s. GMAT was 720. If you have a similar background or you are looking to build your career in this sector, you can ask me specific questions about it.[/quote]


Thanks for reaching out,

I wanted to know if isb takes in people with about 9 - 10 years of experience.

Also being self employed ( small scale manufacturing ) be a boon or a bane ?

Acads 85 plus 10th and 12th.

Btech 2010 80% ( 7.6 gpa ) jaypee noida.

2 years 2 months work ex in ericsson with 3 months in USA

2013 feb to now self employed.

Regards
Chetan

Aiming for a gmat score of 700+ ( last score 680 in 2014

Pitching in with my limited knowledge.

1. After looking at the PGP batch profile I don't see 9-10 years of work experience as a disadvantage. However, be prepared to face questions such as- Why PGP? Why not PGPPro?

2. Again, I don't see any issue with being self employed; however be prepared to face questions such as- Why PGP? Why not PGPMFB? I'm assuming that you'll continue with your small scale manufacturing business post ISB.

If you are still unsure-

1. Talk to an ambassador with similar background that of yours
OR
2. Consult an admission consultant
AND
3. Attend ISB info session to clarify your doubts.

Hope this helps, cheers.

Dears, if you're planning to apply to ISB this year kindly update your user a/c by adding ISB to your profile. This will,
1. Help the Gmatclub team with the analytics,
2. Help you assess your candidacy among the pool of candidates.

Hey guys,

I have a little over 4 years of work ex, 3 years as a Visual Designer (where I worked mainly on the bigger clients) at an ad agency, and then transitioned roles, working as a Marketing Manager for a luxury services brand for a year (and counting)

Maintained a steady 82% in 10th and 12th, and majored in Advertising (BMS) from Symbiosis International University with a GPA of 2.9. I’ll be taking the GMAT this month and I’m targeting at least a 720.

Looking to apply to ISB. Can someone let me know my chances and tips for my application, if any?

Thank you :)

Did you registered yourself in the portal as a re-applicant? They ask it in the beginning.
