Hi everyone,

I am sure all of you are anxious, busy and tensed while preparing for ISB's MBA application. These MBA applications are a good way to analyse one's strengths and weaknesses. It is a tough yet interesting time for each one of you which one will cherish throughout your lifetime once you reach the destination.

I started my journey on this path 2 years back; in the first year I received 100% rejections from 6 business schools and this year I have received 5 admits including 2 from top 5 business schools, 2 Ivy-leagues with scholarships and 1 from ISB. I was interviewed by 8 business schools this year including Harvard, Stanford, INSEAD and ISB.

I write to encourage all of you to not lose hope and be hopeful in this journey. I will be happy to help anyone who needs help in this process. I can be reached apoorvaj2712 (at) gmail(.)com

I look forward to interacting with interesting people here and getting to know an awesome bunch of you all.

Best wishes to all of you.

With a profile like that :shock: , i wonder why were you rejected the first time. Its a good mix.
Was it the score or anything else that you improved on your 2nd round of application

Hey Ersheet,
I had a low GMAT earlier which I improved the 2nd time (still was below 700).
Additionally, the biggest improvement was my choice of recommenders, quality of my applications and the elevator pitch which I created after doing my due diligence.
The right approach to entire application helped me gain those admits.

I have received over hundred responses from people looking for my inputs on my journey. I have been able to respond to a few and some have been missed.
I am available for a consultation at apoorvaj2712@gmail.com
With new FT rankings and changing global scenarios, I am looking forward to help other applicants.

So, all the guys, hang in there! All the best

Regards
Apoorva

Congrats on getting selected in your dream schools. :-D

Which school will you select now out of all the admits you got? It would be great if you could share your interview experience with all the schools that interviewed you.

Hello sakshamch,

The good news is that with your GMAT score and work experience, you hold a good chance of getting through some fine MBA programs :)
That said, your query does not provide us information specific to your career goals, as well as the geography you are looking to target.
Therefore, we would like to take this opportunity to offer you a free profile evaluation. Should you be interested in the same, please feel free to reach out to us ☺

All the best with everything ☺
