Hello guys,

Please evaluate my profile and let me know how well my profile is placed.
Age:25

I have already taken GMAT twice. Managed to score 690 in my second attempt.(I scored a dismal 590 in my first attempt) . Plan to take it again to pull up my score further.(Is it necessary ?? Need advice on this as well.)

- After my graduation,tutored primary class students of nearby Government school to adequately prepare them to pass the state exams.


Post-MBA: Consulting or Information Management specialization is what i'm looking at. I would want to leverage on my technical experience gained over these 3-4 years.

Thanks,
Farhan

Hi Farhan, indeed if you could pull up your score by around 30-40 points, it would further your cause for a strong candidature. I am sure you realize that you belong to the rather common pool of applicants (software Engineers, though I understand it's not exactly that).

Other things in your profile look good, but a better GMAT can make it better. With the new cancel option on GMAT, frankly you have absolutely nothing to loose, by reappearing in GMAT. I think this was one masterstroke by GMAT, to make more people reappear on GMAT:).

First of all, thank you for your swift response ISBeacon
I do realise that i'm up against a strong pool of software engineering folks. Is every engineer applying perceived in similar way?? I wanted to know if the quality of your work experience matters in selection process. Setting aside my software background ( something that can't be changed :) ) , is there anything else that can be done to compensate for that. As you mentioned , GMAT score is one area that can be improved. But realistically, what are my chances with the current score that i have.?

Hi Farhan, with your current score, given that you seem to have a very decent profile (good acads, decent extracurriculars, optimum experience), you "do" have a chance for an interview call. But as I mentioned, a better GMAT score would further your chances.

As for the quality of work, of course it does matter. However, let me share with you an issue that I am sure Admissions Committee members face as well. Almost all the applicants with software experience mention that they have led a team, got client recommendations, have had fast track promotions, have certifications, and have international experience. Almost all are Project Managers/Project Leaders.

Frankly, I am sure most of them (if not all) are truthful, because after all, one would expect that only above average people would apply to ISB. However, the issue then is that it becomes a bit challenging to differentiate based on work profile alone, since most of the candidates do seem to be achievers (and as I said, I am sure they are).

Farhan,

With your technology profile we dont think that there is a great chance at 690. So, our recommendation will be to give one more attempt to GMAT. Well, thats the only thing you can change in your candidature at this point. Adding some extra curricular etc is not possible now.

Feel free to contact us and we can discuss how to showcase your profile.

Hi Asheesh,

Your overall candidature is very strong. Firstly 730 on GMAT is good. In terms of work ex, the good decision that you made was moving out of a typical IT services role and jumping into banking. That adds diversity to the profile.

Your entrepreneurial experience is good but it has to be handled carefully. Many applicants get strangled because they are into a job and start a venture in parallel and are not able to clearly justify need of MBA and post MBA goals.

Your extra currics especially badminton related achievements will also add a dimension to your profile.

Our only worry is your post MBA goals. If you can justify that well, chances are really good.

Feel free to contact us for any queries.

Thanks Apphelp for your advice. My post MBA goals are to create a national brand in the skill development education sector which is financially profitable, thanks to government support and the large pool of workers in the unorganised sector as well as explore various other opportunities in the manufacturing and real estate sector with the assistance of my sister, who is a grad from IIM A , and is an entrepreneur helself and whose firm is currently employing more than 1000 people. :)

My goals seem to lack focus to many but sadly that's who I am, a multitasker. I love to be engrossed in several things at once because I believe I am good at focussing on multiple things at the same time. Whenever I feel let down by any specific task I like to work with something different which clears my mind about previous probs and I start afresh and it gives me a new outlook. :(

Asheesh,

I think we should talk on phone about this. Feel free to call us on +91 9871354580.
I am not doubting your capability to achieve the goals you have mentioned. The challenge i see is that this story will be difficult to sell to adcom and convince them that you will be able to get into education sector without any hands on experience.

So, as mentioned lets discuss this in detail on phone.

Hi Guys,

I'd appreciate it if someone could assess my profile and answer a few queries:-

Male
Age - 25

I just took the GMAT for the first time on 7 - Oct - 2015 and scored 700 (Q-47 V-39)

My Acads are as follows:-

B-Tech - Electronics and Communications - Manipal Institute of Technology:- CGPA - 7.84/10
XII Grade - 88%
X Grade - 92%

My work experience is as follows, it will be 3 years by the time i start my MBA assuming i start it mid-next year

I am a Quality Engineer at a division of Standard and Poors (a financial services firm). However, my role is fairly differentiated from regular Quality Assurance Roles.

I have gained significant domain knowledge of the working of global capital markets, specifically the buy side. My projects have involved design critique, testing, results interpretation and maintenance of Portfolio Management Solutions.

I have also mentored people here. Also, our work culture entails working with very diverse individuals and cultures across the world and need good communication skills with strong emphasis on articulating information deferentially based on the kind of stakeholders who are its intended consumers. These stakeholders include everything from product team individuals, business analysts, developers and financial engineers.

Prior to this I had two internships:-

- One at a public sector firm designing a network centric solution for a radar system
- One at an automation and control firm designing and testing a control system

I am also a candidate in the Chartered financial Analyst (CFA) program - level 1 in december - and believe that this certification will compliment my MBA - finance.

My Co-curricular's include

- Bassist and co-founder of several bands
- independently organized several concerts - including setting memorandums of understanding with co-organizers, acquiring sponsors, funds and headlining and associated performers
- Voluntary services organisation - Social Service

My goal is to acquire some quality education and exposure by pursuing an MBA Finance. My current role keeps gives me quality exposure to the buy side aspect of the capital markets but limited exposure overall. Also, my job title and function does not entail a very client facing role, i believe that the MBA will help me accomplish both of these and much more.

On the basis of all these postulates, could someone please evaluate my profile and advise areas of improvement needed? Including if the GMAT Score is enough (do i need to retake) and what other areas could this profile be improved upon?

Also, i wanted to ask, how much of a difference is there in applying in round 1 and round 2? Are the chances of getting different for these two?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Tushar,

There is practically no difference in applying to ISB in Round 1 vs Round 2.

Your experience is good. Especially given your domain exposure which is not very common. But ISB may not be the best schools to transition into a core finance, investments related role given a one year program with no internship. While you can apply to ISB, we see 3 yrs and 700 as something which can be a roadblock. Also, not sure whether ISB is the right school for you.

Feel free to contact us for a detailed discussion.

Your work experience and extar currics look good. The only issue i see is a laundry list of activities. Dont try to present yourself as a candidate who has scratched the surface when it comes to marketing, has done tech certifications, graphology, some finance related certification, CRY etc etc.

Focus on 2-3 key areas and highlight that. I see Graphology, Some international/ client related experience and finance related certification/ internship as key. Chuck out college fests, marketing job, tech certification and NGO thing for sure.

Try to get a 710+ on GMAT. It will be key given that your are an IT applicant.

Feel free to contact us for any queries.
