Certainly shaarang! Here is our assessment:
- So, diversity is what ISB is looking for this year, and you have plenty of that, with a GMAT of 760 to boot! Strong chances for you at ISB, given those parameters.
- The IB experience and the entrepreneurship experience certainly adds to your profile, though we note the IB experience is more risk-management oriented (that's fine).
- Graduating from a non-Tier 1 engineering school is not a factor for you, even though your acad performance was about average. The GMAT makes up for that.
- The goals part seems a little shaky to us. Getting into VC/PE from ISB will not be an easy deal. Long term entrepreneurship is always questionable. Suggest you revisit this part. Your goals are your goals, after all, but showing ISB a more ISB-realistic way of getting there is important, else it will translate to high interview risk for you.
- T-20 is certainly possible, provided you choose wisely (don't go automatically for the biggest names, necessarily. Ascertain fit.). So is ISB.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.


Hey GyanOne. thanks for the quick and detailed insight!

I'll make note of your goals suggestion; it makes more sense when applying to T-20 schools but I see how it doesn't translate well in ISB's context.

The schools I was applying to were: Sloan, Haas, Ross, YSOM, UCLA and NYU [Basically schools with strong Finance+Entrepreneurship concentration]

I recently wrestled with the idea of swapping out NYU for ISB for added safety until I got advice to apply to Booth/Wharton and that my work-ex would give me a reasonable shot; it's all very confusing to say the least!

Thanks shaarang. Some more food for thought:
- Applying to ISB and Stern is quite chalk and cheese. It is not about just getting into a school but getting into the right one. If global IB is your goal, you may want to review keeping ISB in the mix at all.
- On your other schools, don't want to comment in-depth as school decisions are best made after detailed profile analysis (not just an overview) and decisions, but you may like to consider Columbia and Tuck as additions to your mix, if they otherwise meet your preferences (i.e. judging just by profile and goals). These are just overall suggestions, though. School suggestion is something done after a lot of research and discussion, as we advise our clients, so don't want to be guilty of breaching our own advice! :)

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.

Hi HK

Thanks for the detailed post. This was really helpful. Here is our analysis:
- Although you did your best (and did do well too) in the interview given the cross-questioning, our sense is that overall their impression would be that of mild conviction, and your interview performance may not be the top decile types. In hindsight, some elements like telling them you are nervous and hungry could have been avoided. The rest is of course a response to what they asked.
- The goals part in essay 2 was a little less convincing. Strategy consulting may not be an easy sell given your experience and scores. Also, it is a goal often mentioned by applicants. That is the part that is creating confusion here. Given your corporate experience and family business exposure (+ your venture), a better/more understandable goal is to become an entrepreneur, not go into consulting. Our hunch is they were not convinced with the direction you are taking, hence so many questions (while a few goals questions are par for the course in any interview, these were probably a lot more than usual).
- Our assessment is that given this interview and the overall profile, chances of conversion are medium to low for your case. Please do not take this to be an incontrovertible opinion. Our effort here is only to provide an assessment so you can plan your time better now. You should probably be looking at other schools apart from ISB that are on your radar, and putting in strong applications (and sort out the goals part certainly, please) to those. If ISB converts, consider it a bonus.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.


Thank you for the response :)

I have moved past ISB it's not an option anymore to me. Just wanted to reconfirm the same :)

Hi gyanone

I am 32 years male working in sail(steel authority of India Ltd) , will you kindly evaluate my profile and suggest me where to improve

10th 72%
12th 72%
Engineering (metallurgy) from bit Sindri 76%
GMAT 700( q 47, v 39)
Job experience 10years 6months

Initially I had joined IBM and worked for 6 months there , my work there was basically software testing , I have done a few certifications over there (istqb,aix)

After that I joined steel authority of India Ltd as my background was metallurgy and since then have been working here
In these ten years following are my achievements
I was able to increase the productivity of bloom casters by 20%
Played a vital role in improving the quality of slabs and hence increasing yield
Played a vital role in the automation of bloom casters and minimising human labour
As steel industry is labour intensive hence regular interactions with labour unions is part and parcel of my job

During these ten years I have handled various aspects of operational management such as logistics management, manpower management, cost cutting programs , increasing productivity with quality and safety issues on shop floor
The reason why I wish to do MBA at isb is that although I had a lot of exposure for technical and managerial roles at sail I didn't get much opportunity to understand the financial aspect and with out that exposure I don't think I will be able to handle bigger roles in coming future
My hobbies are photography and travelling

Hi vijyband99

Thanks for posting. Here is our assessment:
- Your academic scores and GMAT are well within the range for ISB. No worries there.
- You have not provided too many inputs on your extra-curriculars, international exposure (if any), achievements outside work, or any social contributions. Some of these are important factors, especially this year, when ISB is looking for diversity outside the classroom as well. Photography and traveling are nice, but they are also a bit common.
- In terms of your reasons for getting an MBA, you will need to go deeper than that. The reason is that you have 10+ years of experience, which is well above the median at ISB. That does not mean you have no chance of making it (a few people with as much experience, and even somewhat more, do make it every year) but that your goals and your answer to why you need an MBA now have to be very convincing. The answer you have at the moment is more of a classic case for the Executive MBA (part-time) and ISB may consider you a better fit with the PGPMAX with these.
- Do not, in any case, delay applying to ISB beyond this year for the PGP. Work on your goals and your application.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.

Seeking help from GyanOne on my ISB application was one of the best decisions I took this year.Rishabh was very helpful in discussing in details about my post MBA goals which led me to gain clarity. He was extremely helpful in bringing out the positives of my profile which was a very important factor in shaping my story.The detailed analysis, thorough discussions and any time availability over call provided by Rishabh made a great difference in my application.Being a reapplicant, the pressure increases and I was able to handle it well with gyanone's help.Even the guidance provided by Swati for interviews was very fruitful, She prepared me for the toughest of questions and helped me cover any gaps between my application and actual interview.

Hello all,

ISB has just announced an additional intake round - Cycle 3 - with a deadline of Jan 15, 2019. This comes as a breather for applicants who could not aim for the original Dec 15, deadline as the last for ISB for the Class of 2020 (2019 intake), as it was supposed to be earlier.

The application fees for Cycle 3, however, has been increased to INR 7500, and the final offer decision will be made by March 5, 2019.

These details are as they stand now at the following link at the ISB website: https://www.isb.edu/pgp/admissions/admission-calendar

Hi GyanOne!
I am planning on applying to ISB for the 2020 intake. I have a decent GMAT score as well as academics. I joined the workforce after graduation as a software engineer at a leading bank in august 2017 and will have 2 years of work ex by the time I apply. I have about 10 months before applications start and I want to make the best use of this time by strengthening my profile but I am not sure how. My post MBA goals are to become an entrepreneur and I would like some suggestions about the initiatives I can take up at work and outside to substantiate my profile.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks :)

Hi agarwal10

Thank you for posting, and welcome to the GyanOne thread.
- At this point, would request you to post more details on your profile - what is your exact GMAT score, GPA, and employer?
- Please also mention details on your work experience - as a software engineer, what are the kind of business projects you contribute to?
- Finally, some more detail on your ECA and leadership experiences will be helpful.

Once you provide this, we will be in a position to provide suggestions.

Hi JAIN09

Thank you for posting. Welcome to the GyanOne ISB thread.
- Consulting, analytics, and finance may not go together with your profile. If you are coming in from a technical operations profile, you may look at analytics and consulting as future possibilities, but a move to finance with this much experience may not work.
- ISB can certainly be the right choice for you. Many people make the move from tech ops to consulting through ISB. To improve employability, you will need to network, take the right courses, do well academically, and work on related projects. A certification is not really a requirement. However, all this comes later. As of now, focus on taking the GMAT and getting into ISB (or another top B-school) first as your singular focus.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.

Hi Ari269

Thank you for posting. Welcome to the GyanOne ISB thread. Would request you to post more details on: (a) your work profile - where do you work, in what role, and what are your key achievements? (b) the GMAT score you expect you should be able to get. We will come back very quickly with an evaluation post that.
