Hi Alok,

A higher GMAT score can help, but even your current GMAT score is fine and in the acceptable range for ISB. Your academic background and work experience too seems decent.

Cannot comment on the reasons for rejection without understanding your profile and your application in more detail. In case interested, you can contact us for a free profile evaluation and we will be happy to help.

Alok,
U have sound experience and a competitive GMAT score too. (The avg GMAT score of the last batch as per ISB placement report this year is 711, so i think you score is good enough)

What i would advice is to reflect back upoun every aspect of your application. And do a critical analysis. All experts and even ISB admission officers say that the GMAT score has a great role to play but there are so many other factors too.
So do a detailed analysis from your essays to profile, your goals, your scores, your presentation -the entire package you presented last time before the admissions committee.

The area which you find weak, work on them and for sure you can get through. You will have to show your improvements over the last year when you apply this time.

If you can really push up your score and are confident of it. This could be a great way to show that you have improved and have worked to get into the B school.

All the Best!
Sumit

Alok,

IIT BHU is a good brand, Managerial experience in a production plant is a diverse work experience and 710 is not bad at all. If you got a straight ding in R2 without an interview call then most probably you were not able to articulate your experience, achievements and goals well in essays.

Feel free to share your last year ISB app pdf with us ( email to : info@apphelp.co.in) and we will try to figure out what went wrong with you application last year.

Did you make it to the interview? What was the feedback ISB shared with you?

The feedback will give you more specific direction on how you should approach this year. However, I am pretty sure that with a score of 710, ISB would not give a feedback about your score being low. So, if you believe that given the time that you now have, you are not strengthening your profile considerably, then a very high GMAT score (740+) can definitely do you the favor.
