Tepper has rejected others scholarship increase requests and I didn't try any further. There are some admits who are not able to join Tepper because of this issue.

Hi KinjiGC

1. Didn't you use Manhattan SC book at all?!

2. you have said that you practiced with many many GMATPrep questions. However, didn't this have any effect on your scores in GMATPrep mock tests? Since you practiced with so many GMATprep questions, then it might be the case that you encountered some of them on mock tests with GMATprep.
I am thinking that whether it is a good strategy to work with GMATprep questions before taking GMATprep exams: if one solves too many of them, he/she might see some of them when practicing with GMATPrep software.

Thanks,

Hey there !

Congrats on the great score.

Sadly your story is better than mine.

I gave my exam on the May 2 2015 and got a 750. Imagine my joy.

But I got a email on June 3 , 2015 saying that my scores were all cancelled due some testing irregularities and I have to give it again.

Kill me right ?

Hi KinjiGC
Thanks,


Please find my answers inline

1. Didn't you use Manhattan SC book at all?!

Kinjal : Yes, I used it but it is full of rules which I don't think you require all. I preferred to solve OG problems and practice only those rules which are getting tested.

2. you have said that you practiced with many many GMATPrep questions. However, didn't this have any effect on your scores in GMATPrep mock tests? Since you practiced with so many GMATprep questions, then it might be the case that you encountered some of them on mock tests with GMATprep.

Kinjal : GMAT Prep questions are simply the best source you will ever get. So after taking mocks, keep retaking mocks till you get 770-780 in GMAT prep so that you have seen and practiced all the good questions. That will build perspective. At the end of the day, GMAT scores need to be valid for 5 years and they cannot test out of ordinary this year which they haven't tested earlier, as they have to make the scores uniform across. So practiced as many as possible GMAT Prep questions.

All the best.

If you can get it once, you can get it twice. I guess you have an extra incentive to better your score then. All the best. Let me know how it went.

Finally got one Application feedback from the school which didn't even give me the interview call - UCLA Anderson

Back ground : Indian Applicant with 9 years of work ex in Software Product development.
GMAT : 760 (49/44)
TOEFL : 106 (speaking 22) - later 18th March - 108 (Speaking 24)

1) Negative aspect : "TOEFL score is an issue".
As per the minimum score of UCLA school it is 24 in speaking. After submitting TOEFL score of 106, I didn't get a call for the interview and early admits were announced. I thought let me retake TOEFL exam and break that minimum score of 24 which I did. I asked the admissions team whether they can accept latest TOEFL.

The admission team response "in regards to your TOEFL scores, we do not send out interview invitations based on any one specific aspect of an application; even though UCLA graduate division has recommended minimums for test scores, we at Anderson do not enforce strict minimums"

So i thought it shouldn't be an issue till I got Ding without interview on 2nd April.

2) Positive aspect : "No concern about academic abilities"

3) Negative aspect : "Progression not clear in the resume"
In current company my senior manager has 10 reportees (direct and indirect) and I have 3. I have held leadership position since 2 years of experience. I am not sure how can I make it more clear.
I have all calls apart from Anderson. So I think they thought I have progressed well or at least descent.

4) Negative aspect : Resume doesn't have much of extra curricular.
I am playing the role of only user mod in Pagalguy.com for the last 2 years. Pagalguy.com recently bagged $20M funding (http://www.livemint.com/Companies/vcLwl ... ation.html) - Yes I am not directly involved in this but at least some part of contribution.
I have contributed 100 Quant items to VeritasPrep tests.
I have provided consulting services to some of the GMAT test prep companies.

Yes, I don't have Teach America or Teach India initiatives but I have been mentoring students for the last 4 years.

Later it was told that timelines were not clear. Am I supposed to put dates for all those activities? I am not sure. Normally I haven't seen any time lines for extra currciulars- May be somebody can high light. I have highlighted my contribution in optional essay - May be not exact time lines but yes. I can accept may be I need to define time lines in my essay.

5) Negative aspect : Essay didn't high light personal fit
I actually high lighted about the curriculum and clubs and organization and why Anderson. I talked about Easton Leadership , DOTM, special courses and offcourse AMR.
I highlighted the fit for three principals through my work place and challenges I faced in my work place.

Yes, I should have worked on my essays and talked about my involvement more -> that's the only point I can take it away.

I am done. May be it might help others who are applying to Anderson.

Learnings:
1) TOEFL matters > 110
2) Essays -> personal fit
3) Extra curriculars -> Highlight in the essays
.

Pretty disappointing that even after putting a hell lot of hard work , I couldn't even get an interview call.

Anyway, VISA approved so Tepper and CMU, here I come. :-D

All the best guys and girls !! Nail the schools !! and never give up !!

ISB application feedback !!

You were not able to convey your strengths during the interview.

Awesome . It is quite objective and sure I will definitely work on this.

Its better that ISB shouldn't provide any feedback and should discontinue.

Thanks !!

I will tell you something with ISB, just move on. ISB provides very generic feedback and its not worth at all.

I see you interviewed with Tepper and all the best for Tepper. Hope to meet you at Pitts this fall.
