Thats a myth bro. I have few batchmates who got in at 660 too. My profile is average but i wrote my essays really well. You should be able to put in words, your need of doing an MBA and justify it.

Hi,
Let me know whether my profile is fit for an ISB admit, and my strengths and weaknesses.
AIEEE: 6700 among 12 L applicants.
B.Tech from NIT Nagpur with 7.33 CGPA (Not so good I think), but with some diverse electives.
GMAT 720(Q50,V38, IR5, AWA5)
Work Ex: Curently working in Lafarge India PVT LTD (leader in building materials' manufacturing, with a presence in 64 countries)
Got in as a GET@2013, and was presented best GET award for my project in energy savings and cutting down the inventory of compressors.
Then after confirmation, I was presented the responsibility of Inspecting ( whole line starting from Crusher, Stacker, reclaimer, Raw mill, Kiln, Cement mill, and clinker transport), planning, and execution( of just Cement mill and clinker transport as a second Incharge) in Electrical & Instruments. I successfully overtook the responsibility and improved the reliability of plant by properly tracking abnormal parameters of various electrical & instrumentation equipments, and thus in turn decreasing costs by decreasing SPECIFIC HEAT & SPECIFIC POWER CONSUMPTIONS.
Have won Safety person of the month once, and have been organising, and anchoring work life balance events in the colony.
Also I'm leading a team of 6 shop floor workmen and 2 permanent employees on continued basis, along with managing around 50 workmen during shutdowns.

Social responsibilities:An active blood donor donating blood at least 3 in a year. Have been training various Engineering and ITI holders for the past 2 years.

Hi Ritee,

Your work ex looks good. International and team leading experience will also help. If you dont get a 680+ on GMAT we would recommend that you give one more shot. GMAT is not the only factor but with IT applicants it plays an important role.

Given that everything else is good with your candidature there is no point making the case weak just because of an average GMAT score. You have ample time before the deadlines. So, in case your first score is weak do consider retaking GMAT.

Feel free to contact us for any queries.

Hi drashi,

Your overall candidature is strong. ISB gets few female applicants from Instrumentation & manufacturing background. So, diversity will help. GMAT score is good.
Just ensure that you think through your goals and link them well with your past experience to make a coherent story. Also, downplay the tech aspects of your profile and focus on skills such as team mgmt, crisis mgmt, proejct mgmt, planning, costing etc.

Feel free to contact us for any queries.
