Looking at all new waitlists, admits and dings its interesting how people with 770 are getting dings while 720's are getting admits and 750's getting waitlisted. So curious to know whats inside these applications :D

That confirms the theory about a holistic profile MBSingh.

High academic scores will take you to a certain level only, beyond that its your overall candidature and fit that begins to take precedence.
I saw the same trend of 770 scorers getting dinged on the Kellogg thread as well.

So many applicants score a 750+ GMAT these days (not just Indians but even other international applicants) that the score itself can't be our biggest differentiating factor. That explains the results

Also means you were not invited in the first wave. So you are not their first choice. Just a fact. 3 Indian invites on Livewire and here together, so I should assume around 20-30 may have gone out...

Stats are important up to a point, but after that it's your employability and communication skills, etc. that convince the school you're a good fit. It's also much, much tougher for applicants coming from competitive pools. I wish it wasn't that way, but there is little in life that is fair.

Agree. I know two individuals who are also applying to B School this year that have much better credentials than I do but were dinged from all their R1 schools. Below are the mistakes they made:

Individual 1 - highly sought after demographic for b schools with a high GMAT (740 +) and decent GPA (3.6+) from a top 3 public school. They admitted after the dings they were cocky and under the impression that all they had to do was apply and schools would throw money at them. This individual even admitted to only writing their position title in the employment section thinking that the resume contained all the information needed. Worked at a fortune 50 company and promoted multiple times, check.

Remember that you can truly expand on what you do and how you do it in the employment section. Groups you work with, people you mentor, skills you've learned or introduced that couldn't make it on the resume. The readers don't know you and can't read your mind. This candidate is a super star and I would love to work with them at any company. In 10 years the schools that dinged them will regret it ... but I can't blame the school, the app radiated laziness.

Individual 2 - from a competitive pool who attended a top 10 private university with a decent GMAT (710+) and a decent GPA (3.5+). They are young and have really worked their way up the ladder - much faster than I (I am older than this individual). The only weak point that I can find in the candidacy was extremely weak recs and WE in years. They got recs from the highest people that would agree to do them and from what was shared, the recs were not very personalized. Did not discuss achievements or even highlight how quickly the individual progressed in the company.

I am not the perfect candidate. I have a low GPA (albeit in a tough major), I am older than avg age by 2 years, and my ug school is nothing to write home about. I am so incredibly thankful for the individuals who wrote my recs because they knew me well and were able to really highlight my strengths. The admission director at Duke told a story that she received a rec from a presidential candidate that was one sentence. In her words: "It was a disappointment".

Long story short, yeah... what OrbitalDecay said.

TL;DR - Don't get stuck on stats. People think the stats will carry them to the finish line when it will only get you to the starting line.

Hi guys. Wishing all of you a very Happy new year!

I needed some input on the interview process for Tuck. I have received an interview invite, which is scheduled for next week in Mumbai. If someone can share their insights on the process and structure of the interview, it would be extremely beneficial and much appreciated :)

For the on campus ones, they were very standard MBA style -- why an MBA, why now, why Tuck, etc. No surprises in my experience. Good luck!

It re-emphasizes the fact that bschool application process isn't just about numbers. Adcoms take holistic review of your profile, career progress so far, post MBA aspirations, and many other things.
