Thanks workout,

Happy to give back to the gmatclub community.

MBA selection and applications are tough, and I remember being very confused about my applications back when I was applying. Having been through the MBA experience at HEC Paris, I would be glad to help prospective students know more about the school, program, life in France etc.

I understand that you do an MBA once, and sound professional advice matters. Therefore, I am also helping students with their MBA applications and interviews. Feel free to reach out to me via PM for any guidance regarding HEC Paris or MBA in general; or for professional help with MBA admissions.

Regards,
Gautam Sharma

You only do an MBA once, make it count!

I am a mechsnical engineer from MIT Manipal with impressive academics and clear long term goals. By I have been time and again told that a non IITian or non NITian has very little chance with the ADCOM. Is this is fact? Could you also provide the background (College)of selected Indian students in the programme. Should I consider not applying only because my university is not in the top 10?

Hi MySpace,

There is no truth to the fact that Non-IIT, Non-NIT candidates cannot enter the top tier B-schools. Where you went to schools is only one of the parameter in the selection criterias set by Adcoms. My cohort at HEC Paris had students from all range of schools.

There are other criteria which can collectively carry your application forward- such as - academic profile(including GMAT), achievements in school/professional life, the story you present, future aspirations, international exposure etc. The Adcom decision on your application is a weighted average of all the criteria; not just the school you went to. As long as you can put in a strong overall application, you should get an invite to the interview.

Should you need professional guidance on moving forward with applications, feel free to connect with me.

Regards,
Gautam Sharma

Hi Gautam,

I hope you're doing well, just wondering if you might be able to help me out on this one.

I applied for the Jan 2020 intake at HEC Paris in Sep 2019 (Considering I am an international applicant, I realize how late I applied), anyways, I received an email from the HEC team as below.

Quote

Thank you once again for applying to the HEC Paris MBA. We held our pre-selection admissions jury today and assessed your application with careful consideration. Your overall profile has many strong elements, however your current GRE/GMAT score is below the average of the incoming class.

We believe your essays, academic achievements and your career path demonstrate a fit for HEC Paris, and because of these reasons, we are happy to keep your application open and give you a chance to improve your score. An increased GRE/GMAT score will strengthen your application and it will ensure that you will be successful in the classroom. If you have already tried the GMAT several times, we suggest trying the GRE, and we want to reassure you that we will only consider your highest score.

Please let us know if you would like to proceed with your application with your current score, or if you would like to take this opportunity to try the test again. If you decide to retake, please share with us your new score when you have it and we will evaluate your application in the subsequent pre-selection jury.

Unquote

Considering I am already pretty late in the application process, I informed them that I would like my application to be considered with my current GMAT score of 670.

Do you know of anyone who has faced something similar?

Thank you
