Hello Experts,

First I would like to thank everyone here for their constant support. Because of which I managed to get 640 on GMAT last month.

While I am still planning to give it another go in a month, is it a good idea to start working on my application along with my GMAT studies.

I am planning to join MBA class 2019 fall.

Please let me know your thoughts on this.

Thanks again for all the wonderful people out here.

Regards,
Sumit Bramhe

Hi Sumitbramhe,

Thanks for your post! It's great that you are already thinking about getting started on your applications, and you should absolutely get started in order to assess how to bolster your profile. Please read Ivy Groupe's blog post on this topic: It's Never Too Early to Start Thinking About Business School.

Best,

Hey Sumit,

It is never to early to boost the strength of your profile and better understand what B-Schools want. You can definitely do this in addition to preparing for the GMAT.

In this phase you are probably riddled with questions such as: What do I do if my GMAT score isn't outstanding? How do I differentiate myself from other applicants? What are my application weaknesses? What work experience and leadership examples do schools look for? How can I communicate I'll be a strong contribution to my class?

If you are struggling with these questions you may be interested in an online course our team built over the last 6 months that guides you step by step in building a winning application strategy. We tested the program over various iterations with McKinsey consultants, Private Equity managers and even Startup leaders and they gave it a near perfect score, 9/10 and 10/10 across the board.

The course sells itself so I won't do that here. But if you're interested to learn more just PM me and I can hook you up.

I think you are still a bit early on really kicking much of the necessary activity into high gear so your focus should still be on the GMAT for the next 2 months or so. I would say since you have done the bulk of your GMAT Prep already you can incorporate some low intensity application prep items now - research, school visits, identification of essay topics, resume prep. But again focus on your GMAT, since most application are not even available yet

Hi Sumitbramhe,

Thanks for your query.

Your first priority at this point should be to focus on your GMAT preparation, especially since you intend to take the test in the next one month. Having said that, if you do have some time to spare, it may be a good idea to start a preliminary research on a few schools, as well as try to garner an understanding of how you could boost your profile. With about 5 months to go until you submit your R1 applications, you may want to spend some time on pursuing certain activities, which will help add to your profile and an identification of the same needs to be done as soon as possible.

Should you feel the need for a profile assessment, feel free to reach us for a free session :)

All the best!
