Hello everyone! Although my knowledge is not exhaustive, I'll do my best to answer any questions you post here as a fellow applicant.

For now, don't forget to look out for info sessions in your country! It's the last chance to meet the admissions team and alumni to gain more info about the school and ask them any questions!

Hi
I am looking to apply for the 2019 intake have started working on my applications.

Please find below pointers on my profile :
1. 10th - 93%
2. 12th - 92%
3. Btech in Mathematics & Computing from DCE - 80.77%
4. GMAT - 740 (Quants 51, Verbal 39, IR 8, AWA 5)
5. 3 yrs of work experience in Business Analytics & Strategy - Paytm - Business Analytics, HSBC - Risk Strategy for Middle East region and my current company is Oyo rooms which gives me a lot of learning towards driving things and leading analytics in different spheres. Have some achievements from my diverse work experience - for example runners up at the advanced analytics competition for HSBC Global Analytics Centre.
6. I was the VP for a technical fest at DCE and also have some volunteer experience(not alot though).
7. I had received the LN Birla scholarship for academic merit twice in my school days.
What kind of chances do I have this year in round 2, I may not be ready with my application by round 1?Do chances go down drastically for subsequent rounds?

Hi Ayush,

If you submit a bad application in Round 1, you will have absolutely no chances. Submit by Round 2 and submit a solid application. You will still be just as competitive and the extra time will allow you to present your best self.

My honest opinion with regards to this issue on rounds is that they do matter. Every school always emphasises that each round doesn't matter. That could be true but they have incentive to lie as well - they wouldn't want everyone clamouring to apply in R1. Consultants on the other hand, have no incentive to lie (feel free to share your thoughts on this!). However, I must stress that both parties agree on one thing, and that is to only apply when you feel your application is the best that it can be.

Congrats on your score tho! For point 7., if they scholarship was received in university then that's good. if it was received in secondary school, then I don't feel it would add much impact? I got a music scholarship that lasted me from 13-16 but I highly doubt that's gonna cut any ice. I'm still thinking whether I should mention it in my essay.

All the best in your apps! If we do become classmates in JBS, I'd be sure to look out for you. Cheers.

Good luck to everyone working on their applications to Cambridge Judge. I graduated from Oxford Said with an MBA and then spent a year in Cambridge as a partner to a Judge MBA student. I have a strong insight into the program and what Judge is looking for in a candidate.

I currently work as an MBA admissions consultant and I wanted to share some tips for your application:

For those whose recommenders struggled to upload their recommendation letters, I think the link is working now. My supervisor managed to upload his letter.
