Guys I need a little advice, please help me out if you can.
So basically I gave CAT (Common Admission Test) conducted by IIM (Indian Institute of Management) and will score about 97-98 percentile.
I read at quite a few places that HEC Paris accepts CAT score.
I was hoping someone could tell me what percentile in CAT is required to have a fair chance of admission into HEC
can you share the source of the news ?

I think you are getting confused with the exchange program between IIMs and HEC. There is no provision for any international MBA accepting CAT score.

It takes 2-3 weeks post submission deadline for the interview shortlist to be released. Check your application dashboard and spam email folder; sometimes email end up in the SPAM folder.

I applied for the Sept 2019 intake on 15th September 2018 but was dinged without an interview.

1) Is it wise to re-apply for the Jan 2020 intake? Since the time from my previous application is hardly few months, I barely have considerable improvements in my profile
2) I checked the apply now page to start a fresh application but it shows my previous application. How do i start a fresh one?
3) Is HEC re-applicant friendly?

Any leads could be much appreciated. Also is there no thread for the Jan intake?

I would not recommend reapplying at this point. As you rightly pointed out not much time has passed and so it would be a bit unconvincing for them to see you as a different applicant.

The main reason someone would want to reapply so soon is if they made a significant Improvement in their test scores. Other than that they will be looking for further evidence of leadership and impact which takes time to develop of course. You would want to submit new essays and with that would come new experiences.

I think the most advisable thing would be for you to get a ding analysis on your application and then use that information to submit apps to other schools. IMD application rounds are just beginning and same for Erasmus. SDA, I E, and INSEAD are all options for you. If you are a relatively diverse applicant, you might take a shot at round 3 for IESE or LBS.

If you do end up improving your test score(s) that would be a different situation. I'm leading the January HEC thread

Thanks for the honest feedback. I was skeptical to reapply and I won't be doing so.

INSEAD was on my mind but having a 710 and being an applicant from India with no international experience I highly doubt my chances.

Thanks again :)

Regards,
Hk

Hi HK, being an Indian male with a 710 GMAT is a rough spot to be in. Honestly you would need to make a concerted effort to add 20 points to that or go to a less prestigious but still well reputed School (than INSEAD.)

You were right to apply to HEC in the sense that the average of 690 and 710 is what would make you viable as an Indian. However it is a global program and so if you don't have a lot of international experience that's going to be a real demerit.

I will share with you that when I do ding analysis for most Indians their essays lack any real emotion or depth of feeling and it makes you feel like you're not getting to know them. They tend to be very quote professional oriented which is honestly the absolute wrong way to approach this project.

You want to make the adcom feel something, like you and root for you. That means you have to talk about feelings thoughts your inner monologue etc. Introspection is key.

So that might give you some sense about why you did not get any traction with HEC... I could be completely incorrect but that's what I see like 99% of the time.

I think you should apply to round 1 programs with January and take if you're interested in European schools. IMD, Erasmus, SDA... maybe throw the dice with ESADE R4.. apply to January intake Canadian schools such as Ivy, Queens... this might not be a bad option because it comes with a 3-year work visa. Consider ESMT for cost reasons...or buckle down on the GMAT and apply to US schools early action round. The early action round part is important.
