I did the entire process myself. I didnt go through any site or guide to help me,except for friends and family to proofread and cross check.

I'd advice to make the SoP as personal as possible. Stay away from what's on the CV, and if you do want to bring projects/internships up, focus on WHY you did them and how they will help you further.

My profile:

Class 12: 92%
GMAT 680
Graduation: 6.81( Communication and Journalism, Amity Kolkata)

However, I do come from a sports background. I've played for Mohan Bagan U-16, captained my state team(U-16 as well),S.A.I (U-19), etc.

Plus other co-curriculars in college as well, with an international internship thanks to AIESEC.

I feel ESSEC really values motivation and individuality. If you have a clear goal and know why you're applying, they should accept you provided you've shown you're serious about academics when need be.
They also repeatedly stress that GMAT plays only a role in the entire application process. It is not the end-all.

Best of luck for your application process,I hope you get through! :D

ESSEC repeatedly states that GMAT is not the end-all when it comes to their selection process.
Even I did not have a stellar GMAT score, it being only 680.


I would say aim for anything above 680. But please focus equally on your SoPs,LoRs and interview because I felt these elements are what helped me get in as much as the GMAT.

So, I should not apply with a 660-670 GMAT?

I wouldnt say a no. ESSEC told me that they have rejected people with a 750 GMAT and selected people with 630.

If you feel you can do better on the GMAT,I'd say go and take the test again because 2nd and 3rd round applications for these colleges do tend to get more competitive.
However, a 670 GMAT will not be the sole reason for rejection.

Hi kapoor112,
Good luck for the R2 deadline :)
ESCP mean GMAT for R1 is hovering around 680, your GMAT coupled with a strong application should get a fair shot.
I am an ESCP MiM Alumni myself and I have mentored around 58 applicants to get into ESCP last application season - In case you want to check out essays of last year's applicants, I will be happy to share the same with you, plus offer you the resume and LOR samples for free.
Lastly, I can give to a one-time edit to make sure it is the strongest version of your essay.

You can check out ESCP's sample essay package here: https://www.mim-essay.com/escp-essay-an ... ?gmat-club

Hope this helps !

Hi, thank you.

The link does not work.

How important is cover letter since it's an optional part of application?

Hi @kapooe112, I have re-published the link, it should work now - https://www.mim-essay.com/escp-essay-analysis/

I always recommend applicants to never skip the optional questions for any school- be it the optional essay or the cover letter, because -
A. You get only so much space in the entire application to showcase your story - As you must have read in this thread - Schools have rejected applicants with 730+ GMAT scores, and accepted ones even with 650+ (The latter did a better job of justifying his goals and showcasing his story). Essays can literally make or break your application so its a good idea to utilize all the spaces to showcase your story.

B. Submitting the optional essays reiterates your seriousness of getting into the program.

Hope this helped!
