Hi, I’m looking for a profile evaluation.

10th: CGPA 10
12th: 92%
BTech (NIT Jaipur): 7.6
GMAT FE: 655

Working as a supply chain and procurement consultant for the past 3 years (1 promotion)

ECs: Head of Marketing for our college’s cultural and tech fests, organised 2 TEDx events, worked for a NGO in Jaipur.

I’m looking to apply in R1 this year.
Good school academics, slightly modest graduation GPA and borderline GMAT score. Supply chain experience and NIT tag is definitely an advantage. Would be helpful to know your organisation as well. With the current GMAT score, you’ll have to craft your application in a way that highlights your goals and leadership qualities. You can reach out to Preppie (http://www.preppie.com) for a free consultation and detailed profile evaluation

https://www.preppie.in/ - We at Preppie are offering free profile evaluation and MBA strategy discussion for both Indian and International B-Schools. If interested, you can book the free consultation slot from our website

How many days will it take to comeplete the application generally ??
Would need atleast one month for end to end application completion. GMAT prep time should be separate from the application bandwidth. Would recommend to start as early as possible. Please reach out to Preppie (https://www.preppie.in/) for free consultation and guidance

Hi everyone, do we have a rough sense on how many students receive merit scholarship?
Broadly around 150 students from a batch of 900 get some form of scholarship, mostly partial in the 3-5 lakhs range.

Is there any additional credit given to female candidate in ISB admission process?
There is no formal structure for additional credits given to diversity candidates. But to maintain certain diversity ratios, admission committee might give preference to female candidates in some edge cases

I know a few students who got through with 645 score but it’s a minority. Plus they had some spike in their profile - national level player, 10+ yrs work experience, non-engg unique background etc. While it’s not a safe score, but there is still some small probability of getting through

Hi, had a small query. Was wondering: aerospace R&D would come under which category? I am a design engineer in Honeywell.
Closest existing options I see is "Professional services and R&D"

GMAT is good. A strong application (and subsequently interview performance) would determine your chances. All the best!

Some more details can help evaluate better

- which undergrad college did you attend?
- which company are you working in? And details of your roles, any promotions(?)

Broadly, aiming for a 665+ GFE would be good, and a 675+ would be great!
