Good to hear from you!

Now, I'd LOVE to help you out and get down with your profile.

The thing is I am missing detail.

I need a LOT more info from you - school name, employer name, titles, promotions, greatest achievements, volunteer work, sports, community service, religious involvement, leadership.. etc. before I can give you a real evaluation.

It will also be very helpful if you can elaborate upon your goals.

Have a look at some of the other very detailed profile requests on this board and do something similar and I'll be happy to get back to you.

Otherwise I can say that given the basis of your profile coming from a very very competitive pool, things will be tough. A LOT of Indian applicants apply to Oxbridge, and to have the best chances you need to make a way to STAND OUT!

Best,
JF


I hope this helps! And feel free to drop us a line for a free consultation.

Hi everyone,

Would love an eval as I'm contemplating applying in R2 this year.

This thread is the master profile evaluations thread for Cambridge applications only. We do not want random profile evaluation threads everywhere on the forum. This will help people get some consolidated (and free :P ) advice from consultants and help others learn as well.

Post your profile here if you want!



Background and nationality
Male, 26, Pakistani

Undergrad Information
Business undergrad degree from the leading business school in Pakistan. 3.5 GPA (Top 10 percentile of the class) with As and Bs in quant courses. Recipient of the university merit scholarship throughout the program.


GMAT:
730 (Q 45, V 46, IR 2, AWA 6) I don't think the IR or Quant scores are indicative of my ability and I'm hoping the rest of my application explains that.

Work experience and leadership
4 years of work experience in core brand management of consumer goods, first at a local blue chip market leader and- for the past 1.5 years- at a leading multinational. Responsible for brands with turnover > $250 mn and stewarded marketing budgets in excess of $5mn. (Note: Brand teams are very lean so I do not have direct subordinates, but I have been entrusted with interns and trainees)

Community and others
Debate and Model UN, during high school as a participant and later as a coach. Gained a lot of international exposure and leadership experience through attending and taking high school teams to conferences/tournaments all over the world.

Post MBA goals
Transition into consultancy to consolidate my understanding of business fundamentals for 2-3 years before returning to Pakistan to develop a profitable and equitable social enterprise, ideally in the dairy sector.

Anything else?
No idea how useful the career accelerator program is in securing jobs for international students, so any light that can be shed on that would be greatly appreciated.

Also, I probably won't be able to secure a visa in time for the interview. Would that be counted against me in the process, since a) they do highly recommend a visit to Cambridge and b) this is completely out of my control.


Thanks in advance!

Hey there,
Wellll I think there is a LOT to think about here, and that you may be jumping the gun (sorry for my Americanism :) ) on figuring out where to apply and what your chances are: You don't yet have your work experience, you have three more years to go, and don't have your GMAT. Plus your goals might change entirely in function of your work experience.


Sooooo really instead of focusing on "can I get into Judge"? Your REAL question should be: What can I DO to ensure I have the best chances? (Besides getting a great GMAT) What can you do to improve your profile over the next years???

I would like to present you with a list of ideas, which should help you:

- Definitely do at least one if not real real volunteer works while you are working. the BEST possible volunteer work is anything that has to do with leadership or fundraising, so if you see those opportunities, jump on them!

- Make sure you do the best possible at work, taking any opportunities to lead, to get involved in social events, to advance.

- Likewise try and keep up your life! What I mean is that schools LOVE candidates who have a broad range of activities and interests.

- If you have any interest in entrepreneurship as a side project, it can be good to have that in your profile.

- If you have any interest in politics as a side project, it can be good to have that in your profile.

There are probably more things that I am not yet thinking about, but this is a very good place to start!

Best,

Hey dude,
So for Cambridge you seem to be in pretty good shape and should be competitive. The one thing you really need to hone is that Post-MBA and long-term goal story. It seems to me not yet clear. And to think about why you really want to go to Cambridge (and not somewhere else).

Otherwise, as long as this fits into an overall strategy, seems good to me!

Best,
Jon

I intend to apply for the 2018 intake for JBS. Would appreciate an evaluation of my profile.

WE : Will complete 6 years by the time I start school ( September 2018)

Gender: Male
Nationality: Indian
GMAT: 730 (Q50, V39, IR 6)

International exposure: Have never had the opportunity to work abroad, but liaise with onshore teams on a dily basis. Have been doing so for the best part of 5 years.

Education: Post Graduate Diplioma in Banking (CGPA 8/10)
Bachelor of Technology: (CGPA 6.1/10)

Professional Experience:
> 3 years at ICICI Bank (India's leading Private sector bank) as a Corporate Credit Risk Analyst. Here I was involved in various processes over the 3 years. (Risk monitoring, Governance, QA, Regulatory, Reporting to Senior Management etc)
> 2 years at Barclays India. Areas of work include Compliance, Risk Assessment, and Project Management

Both the roles above involved liaising with cross functional teams in London, Singapore, Canada, U.S., Bahrain etc.

Personal: Have travelled to England, Scotland, Ireland, Dubai, Bali.

Extra- Curricular:
Have been involved in CSR(Corporate social responsibility) activities. Active participant in educating underpriviliged kids (among other activities) at various company-empanelled NGOs. Have also been involved in local social work organised within the residential community.

Active participant in sports throughout my school years. University captain of the football team along with being chief sports coordinator.

My biggest fear is that my overall academic record is rather weak and I would like to know what I could do to overshadow this. Is the steady improvement after graduation enough? Does the 730 in GMAT help? I am also currently pursuing an Executive Education course from Judge Business School - Cambridge, sponsored by my company.

Would love to hear some views. Thanks in advance.
