Thanks in advance for reviewing my profile. Shall look forward to objective advice in terms of starting the application

Background and nationality: Indian , Gender: F

Undergrad Information : B-Tech from West Bengal University of Technology (9.02/10) Electronics & Communication

Graduation and Masters: MBA from Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode (3.7/4.33) Top 5 in Batch

GMAT: 720

Work experience and leadership : Tata Group Leadership Program ( TAS) with experience in functional areas of sales & marketing, strategy across industries like FMCG, lifestyle retail and education. Previous to my MBA have worked in IT consulting for 1.5 years. Total Work Experience (4 years)
Professional achievement: Set up the customer experience program for the largest lifestyle retailing company in India, driving growth in repeat business by 25% and leading the organization to win multiple National and International accolades for leading the curve in service design and customer experience ( Mostly notable being listed as a global case study in KPMG's customer experience thought paper, being recognized by industry bodies like NASSCOM and being a finalist at International Cx Awards 2018 )

Community and others : 3 months of immersive work in tribal education based out of a remote village in India
Trained in Indian classical music and have won multiple debates at intra and inter college competitions

Post MBA goals: General Management/ Consulting

Anything else?
I am working in a very niche domain of customer experience and service design in a highly acclaimed leadership program in India, the Tata Administrative Services, As part of Tata Group Leadership Program participant I have had cross-functional experience in Sales, Marketing and Strategy functions in FMCG, Retail and developmental sectors. Previous to this, I have earned a masters degree in Business Management from IIM Kozhikode, one of the most premier institutions in India.

My motivation for a second MBA is a global exposure and more importantly the experience of attending Harvard University.

I have had a fairly meritorious academic record, moderate exposure to diverse extra-curricular activities like Indian Classical music, debates, news article writing, swimming and a continuous track record of shouldering leadership responsibilities at school, college and at work along with a decent exposure to social development project having spent 3 months in a remote village in Jharkhand district of India in setting up Tata Trusts foray into tribal education in the area.

At the personal front I had lost my dad as a child of 10 years and the emotional, financial and social trauma of trying to make ends meet with my brave but severely ailing mother, has made me stronger as a person.

I am broadly aware about the stellar profiles which compete for a seat in HBS and am really eager to polish my application to be able to make the cut.

Hi Jukta89,

Thank you for your post and for sharing your profile. I like what I read, and would love to learn more about your history. From what I see, I would urge you to consider retaking the GMAT if you think you can increase your overall score by 10-20 points. Aside from that, I strongly recommend you build a strategy to telling your story to the HBS adcom. Telling your story (personal history, work experience, community engagement, motivations) in a genuine way is pivotal. You must also convey why a second MBA makes sense and why you require it to progress in your chosen field. I hope this helps!

Good luck!

Hello,

I am a Male chemical engineer of indian origin (UK national) looking to see if you guys can guide me with my odds at Harvard/Stanford/Sloan. I have lived in around 7 countries including all countries within UK.

GMAT - 730 (can retake to get 750+ if needed as I only did 4 week of prep).

Undergraduate - Top 20 world (Russel Group in UK) - Bachelors of Chemical Engineering - First Class (Think its 4 in GPA).

Postgraduate - Top 100 world Red Brick Russel Group in UK/top 3-5 for Chem Eng in UK - MSc Chemical Engineering - Merit (missed out distinction by 1%) - not sure what the GPA is.

Work Experience - 3 years at Tata Steel across UK/Netherlands/France. Worked as engineer and strategy consultant with promotion in year 2 to engineering manager position that usually takes normal graduates atleast 10 years of experience.

I know TATA has close links with HBS due to a donation by Ratan Tata - Harvard AMP and Tata Steel alumni.

I have heard that international GPAs matter less due to only USA GPAs affecting the rankings and that steel industry is a unique one in business school. I know being indian engineer is not ideal but looking to see what you guys think and was wondering if my engineering background and GMAT will offset my merit in postgraduate :)

Hi multirealman,


Thank you for your post. Overall you have a great profile. As you pointed out, you fall under the "Indian Engineer" applicant pool. Because of that, I recommend you retake the GMAT and try and score higher. As I mentioned in my previous post, H/S/M look for more than just high quantitative score; they look to admit those who are well rounded (qualitative perspective). I recommend you address your values, your motivators, and your aspirations in your essays to each school. Of course, you will also need to state why is it that you require an MBA and why from each school (obviously extensive research is necessary to address the latter component). I hope this helps.

Good luck!

Hi FusciaCricket,

Thank you for your post and I am sorry about your parent's passing.

I would like to learn more about professional background and career aspirations to adequately review your profile. As you pointed out, your undergraduate GPA is low. I do recommend you talk about that experience either in your personal statement or as an addendum to the application.

Good luck!

Hello,

I am considering applying for the 2+2 MBA program at Harvard, and I wanted to know if I have a decent shot before I spend the time writing essays and asking for recommenders. Here is some info:

Senior Undergrad at USC / UCLA / ND / Georgetown tier school (graduating in May) with full scholarship
3.7 GPA, Computer Science & Business Admin Major
5 internships, including as a software engineering intern at Google
Will be returning to Google as a software engineer upon graduation
Taking GRE Jan 4th 2019, but my SAT was ~2300/2400 (with 800 math and 800 writing) so I think I will do well
In terms of career goals, I want to work as a software engineer for 2 years, so that I can learn the ins-and-outs of world-class software development, and then move into venture capital post-MBA and use my knowledge to help evaluate the tech at companies. Is this a career path that Harvard would like, or is that not consistent with what they are looking for?


I know I don't have a ton of time, so I need to make a decision about whether to apply or not. I am also considering applying to Stanford's deferred MBA program.

Do I have a good shot?

I'll keep it REALLY real: HBS is looking for proven, demonstrated leaders. People who -- even at a young age and before they're out of college -- have gone above and beyond and racked up some extraordinary leadership experience through their extracurricular, community, volunteer or personal activities. People put too much emphasis on "stats," in my opinion. Yes, you will need a good GMAT score and GPA to be considered in the first place, but those are just like "check the box" hurdles. After that it will come down to what others in the class will be able to learn from you during case discussions -- what will you bring to the table?

If you feel like you don't have a lot to say for yourself on that front, then that would be an issue for HBS. I would recommend really focusing on leadership experience in your early career and taking on a leadership role at a nonprofit that you care about and STAYING in that role for a few years -- showing deep commitment. That will then position you much more strongly to apply when you have 3-4 years of work experience under your belt.

Hope that helps!

So I just found out about the Harvard 2+2 program, which sounds very appealing to me as I've just started my last semester of undergrad. My GMAT is 750 and my current GPA is 3.61 (hopefully 3.65 by the time I apply). The problem is until I took the GMAT I never imagined I would be applying for anything relatively close to Harvard, so I don't have a lot more to add to my application.

The 750 is only slightly better than the 740 median, and I'm not sure if it serves any advantage with my slightly below-average GPA. I don't have any internships/professional experience to add, but I plan to secure an internship starting early 2016 that I can at least mention. I have a year and a half's worth of work experience tutoring a variety of business courses, and the extent of my extracurricular activities is playing for the VCU ice hockey team.

Do I have any shot of getting in or should I save the $250?
