Hi all,
I have a gmat score of 640 but I am confident that I have above average academics, work exp , extra curricular and awards.
10th/12th/btech
89.8/89.6/85 %

Total 6 yrs work exp in tcs and accenture
Won several awards at work for automations, resolution of complex issues
Extra curr- CSR volunteer, national eco watch events and promoting digital education among children. Lead event coordinator, proud finisher in marathons etc. Also Learned kathak for short period of 1 year.

I want to apply for IIMB and ISB , but as a first time applicant I am really confused about the quality of my essays n preparation of interviews.

With IIMB deadlines approaching, I am looking for a professional help now as my essay is not making me confident.. could anyone help me with best help available in India, kolkata? Face to face interaction will be a plus.

Or is there any other way or people can help me selflessly so that I can get my essay reviewed and they can help me fill in the gaps and make my application strong?

Many thanks
I am eagerly looking for advises.

Well, the truth be told good sir, that with a 640 the main gap to be filled is that you should retake the GMAT. If you have any doubt about the importance of the GMAT in your application, Iw ould suggest reading through these two articles:

I do hope you find them relevant and useful.

Best,

Mrinal,

Well, Very few applicants do get in to these b-schools with a ~640 GMAT score. Infact we helped someone successfully apply to IIMA PGPX last year with a score of 600 - I think his score is the lowest in their current batch. But that applicant had a really differentiated profile.

While I agree with you that you may have above average academic and professional experiences, never undermine your competition. You belong to an over-represented group of applicants and applying when every aspect of your profile is strong makes more sense. Both b-schools have two deadlines. If you can retake and apply with a ~700 GMAT in their second deadlines, it would really help. For ISB, you could still target round 1.

feel free to share your resume with us and we'd be happy to have a quick discussion.

Hi mrinal0308,

Thanks for sharing your details ☺

With TCS and Accenture on your resume, you indeed have above average experience ☺

Having said the above, a 640 is fairly on the lower side if you are looking to target the IIMs and ISB. Thus, while you must focus on preparing your essays, it is imperative that you re-take the GMAT, as well. With a score upwards of 700, as well as a strong application, which focuses on your strengths and portrays a logical sync among your professional experience, short-term goals, and long-term aspirations, we are confident that you will have a strong chance.

Should you feel the need for a free profile evaluation, please do not hesitate to reach out to us ☺

All the best!
