This thread is the master profile evaluations thread for Desautels (McGill) MBA 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!

Hello Folks,

I am sharing my profile details here and would love to get your feedback. I am planning to apply to McGill for the 2019 Batch.

Background & Nationality

I am 25 years Indian Male with 3+ years of experience. I have a background in Technology and Entrepreneurship.

Undergrad Information

BE - Computer Science, Thapar University (CGPA 6.47/10) graduated in 2015

GMAT

Overall 720 (Q 50 V 38)

Work Experience & Leadership

I've been working on my own venture for the past 1.5 years as a Frontend Engineer and a Product Lead. I've led the launch of 2 digital products (CVNova, Preadr.com) and our startup made it to the 2nd round at Economic Times - Power of Ideas '18. Previously, I've worked with TCS where I was a part of the end-point security team for an American Client. I was responsible for managing over 4000 systems in the Asia-Pacific region. I've also worked with a startup in the Health Care Sector as an operations associate where I helped set up the Supply Chain for Medicine Delivery and led customer acquisition campaigns for their medicine reminder service.

Community & Others

I volunteered for a Village Audit Program at a village in Madhya Pradesh where we collected data related to income and expenses of the villagers in order to establish the effectiveness of various government subsidies. I've previously co-founded a Travel company and have organised Waste Cleaning Treks in Himachal Pradesh.

Post MBA Goals

I am primarily interested in pursuing a career in Product Mangement at a startup or a technology company. However, I am open to exploring other career opportunities as well.

Anything else

I wish to attend an MBA program because I want to fill knowledge gaps and improve my business acumen. I am especially interested in courses related to entrepreneurship along with a general management curriculum.

Hi,
This is Anna from the McGill MBA recruitment team. Our team recommends you not to get external sources' profile pre-assessments as the application process depends not only on your individual profile but also on the pool of applicants you are competing with. Should you wish to know more about the program and the kind of candidates we admit, we encourage you to get in touch directly with either the McGill MBA recruitment team or the McGill MBA Ambassadors. Cheers!

Thank you! Does McGill offer CV evaluation or something like that where prospective applicants can look for the feedback on their McGill MBA potential?

We offer one to ones and direct communication to discuss how to improve your CV and overall profile.
This being said, because of the limited number students we admit, sometimes the margin for selection is very small and the process is very holistic. We give as much importance to all components of the application. To give you an example, last year we refused quite a few candidates with 750+ GMAT scores because the rest of their application was not compelling enough. We are looking for the best all around candidates who embody the values of our university and who have the drive to succeed both individually and as part of a community.
Don't hesitate to contact us at mba.mgmt@mcgill.ca or keum.brochet@mcgill.ca

This very well explains that Bschools take holistic approach in evaluating the apps and that applicants should focus on all aspects of their profile/application. A solid GMAT score or stellar stats alone are not sufficient to get you in to a good bschool.

Thank you for a candid reply!

Hi k9unal,

I would suggest you plan which industry/function and role would you like to work in Canada. If you look at all the top programs such as Ivey, Schulich, Queens, Rotman, and McGill you will see the average GMAT Score would be around 650+.

With lots of students choosing Canada as one of the option v/s US the profiles that are applying are also quite competitive. This makes these top schools competitive too.
Doing a PMP certification is a good idea. Just make sure you research well on the job opportunities in the kind of role you are looking for. If you are looking at the same/similar industry look at how you would network with them. This research is very important. When you are looking at Canada, do explore the PR option too. This would reduce the investment in Canada as well as chances of you getting a job will work out well too.

Regards,
Shree
