Hi Kishlay (@kishlaykirty),

thank you for sharing your profile.

I think in terms of academics and work experience your profile is good.

Your GMAT is ~30 points above LBS' average, so GMAT most likely won't get in your way. You have a very solid professional career at SBI with diverse experiences and certifications.

The two main vulnerabilities I see in your profile are the lack of international experience and your extra-professionals.

Do you have any international experience? Even if only for short-term assignments? Have you traveled in your personal life?

Can you think about other extra-professional activities you're currently engaged in? Talking about activities during college will not add as much value in your application.

I hope this helps.

For a more detailed discussion, feel free to PM me or email me directly at

Good luck!
