arcgmat03 - from the Adcom’s communication, the other aspects (except your score) seem good. I’ve seen some mentees compensate for low(er) Verbal scores in GMAT/ GRE by submitting IELTS or TOEFL scores: try this route if possible. And highlighting your verbal abilities at work, education etc. can help as well. My advise would be to have a quick chat with AdCom, and act on their recommendation: this shows that you’re making an effort. Regards, Arvind Founder, admitStreet W: https://admitstreet.com | LinkedIn | E: consultingteam@admitstreet.com

Thank you sir

The adcom could have reservations about your communication skills, particularly your ability to engage in class discussions and activities within a global cohort. They might also be concerned that it could impact your employability later. Best to gather evidence of your participation in debates, conferences, and public speaking activities from recent past and present this as an initial validation to the school. I would still suggest that you proactively request a meeting with them to understand their concerns. If you say that you have simply given up on your verbal improvement, I’m afraid that may not sit well with them. But yes, you could try to negotiate an improvement plan that’s not really GMAT or GRE. Tough situation.

Thank you ma’am

Dear Candidates, I often receive queries reg. the HEC Paris MBA e.g. whether there’s a template profile that the school prefers, does a low GMAT or a re-application reduce chances, what topic to pick for the interview presentation, etc.

I made a write-up featuring the profiles and application journey of 4 mentees I worked with last year, all of whom received an admit (and 3 received scholarships) to the HEC Paris MBA (2025 batch). Check it out here

Hope it helps.

What is the max amount of scholarship HEC generally grants? Does it reach 50% of the tuition fee as mentioned on the website?

Yes it can be any topic of your choice. Perhaps this write-up and some examples from here can help

@yogesh203- They used to do 1:1 calls earlier, but my understanding is that they do small group calls now. Have you filled in the Connect with us form? Once you fill in your details, you’ll receive high-level feedback on your profile, along with link(s) where you can schedule that call

Hi @admitstreet, thank you for your response. I have actually already submitted my application and received communication from them that they are interested in my profile but they recommend I attempt the GMAT once more (if possible). In case not, I can choose to continue with my current score as well

I had written to them with some follow up questions and dropped a follow up mail too but haven’t heard back. Hence I was asking for the contact info

Hi Ak9sh if you are looking for ideas on how to impress HEC Paris interviewers, you can refer to this link below where I share some of my best tips and also a sample winning HEC Paris presentation. Many people have told me that the sample was useful, so I hope it helps you too. Should you want to work with me to prepare for your B-school applications or interviews, reach out.

Hello Maddy1621,

At this point, all you can do is to get in touch with the Ad Com and explain the issue to them. You may frankly ask them for an alternative they would prefer. 

Thanks.

Hello, I am an admitted candidate for the September 2024 intake from last January application batch. I was planning to finance my study using my company’s scholarship. But for some particular reasons, I do not think the company’s scholarship is a viable option now. I have considered some options such as other scholarships, student loans, and deferrals. But talking about scholarships, I do think that it is a little bit too late for most scholarships’ deadlines. Does anyone have any recommendations about my current situation?

Hi Everyone! I am planning to apply to the sept 24 intake. GRE 319, 9 year of work ex out of which 8 years were is risk consulting at EY and Deloitte. Have some international work experience and currently work at Jp Morgan as AVP.

Do you suggest I apply to HEC right now? I understand these are the later rounds. I am expecting other admit responses by mid March. Does HEC review apps on a rolling basis or only after the deadline mentioned?

@devikamohole: Your work-ex seems interesting, but GRE is a bit on the lower side: what was your Q/V split?

HEC follows a monthly schedule: final results are announced within 4-5 weeks of each round’s deadline.

Broadly, you might be towards the later rounds for Sep intake, but relatively earlier rounds for Jan intake (looking at Mar/ Apr deadlines). Having said that, the overall profile and strength of your application would determine the outcome: I’ve seen candidates get admits (with scholarships) even in later rounds.

I applied before the 13th March deadline which is R3. The decision is expected by 19th April as per the website. The website also mentions that interview would be conducted two weeks leading up to the final admissions jury. So by that logic I am assuming an invite to interview should come in the next couple of weeks. Is this inaccurate?
