Hi goodiecallapk,

Thanks for sharing your profile.vI am an ISB alum, C014 and have been assisting applicants in their admission journeys since.

Below is my take on your profile :
GMAT : Lower than average
Academics : Average
Work Experience : Good

Your GMAT is on the lower end of the spectrum. So in order to make a compelling application for ISB or any top 30 B schools in US, you should try retaking the GMAT and improve your score by 40-50 points at least. Having said that, with a compelling application where you capture the learnings of your past experiences and tune them with what you are looking to get into post MBA, you stand a chance of getting an interview invite from ISB.

As far as your professional experiences are concerned, please bear in mind to showcase your learnings from the diverse roles you have performed till date – MNC employee, Startup Employee, Startup founder. The admission committee would be interested in understanding your commitment levels for each of the roles and specially the reason as to why did you end your entrepreneurial journey in just about year.

Please feel free to get in touch with me at arijit.biswas@crackadmission.com and/or +arijit_biswas89 (Skype) in case you want a detailed discussion or need professional assistance.
Cheers
Arijit

Hi Sabicha,
Thanks for sharing your profile.
I am an ISB alum, C014 and have been assisting applicants in their admission journeys since.
Below is my take on your profile :
GMAT : Average
Academics : Average (Masters from an International University is a plus)
Work Experience : Excellent
Extra curricular : Competitive
The most critical question that you will need to address in your application is why you need a MBA right now and more so why from ISB. You will have to articulate a common theme across the different phases of your professional career and fit in the MBA appropriately in your future aspirations. One way to do this would be something like : worked in a startup - > attained financial independence through stock sale - > started entrepreneurial journey - > failed but learnt a lot - > also identified some gaps in arsenal - > want to fill those gaps through a holistic MBA program - > equipped with management skill sets would follow my entrepreneurial passion again but with the necessary arsenal.
A logical flow of events is a must to draft an impressionable application.
Please feel free to get in touch with me at arijit.biswas@crackadmission.com and/or +arijit_biswas89 (Skype) in case you want a detailed discussion or need professional assistance.
Cheers

Hi Amogh,
Thanks for sharing your profile.
I am an ISB alum, C014 and have been assisting applicants in their admission journeys since.
Below is my take on your profile:
• GMAT : Below Average
• Academics : Average (Higher CGPA is a bonus)
• Work Experience :
- Quality : Good
- Quantity : Lower than average
• Extra-curricular : Competitive
Your GMAT score and volume of your experience is on the lower side compared to a lot of people you will be competing with. However, you can make this up with a compelling portrayal of your Sales and BD experience. Sales is always a ruthless job and especially when you are at the bottom of the pyramid in an organization. Since you have excelled in this role, you will need to showcase all your personality traits that have helped you come out strong.
Also, make sure that your short term goals are aligned with your existing experiences, and you don’t aim for something where you won’t be leveraging them. This will form the core of your application.
Please feel free to get in touch with me at arijit.biswas@crackadmission.com and/or +arijit_biswas89 (Skype) in case you want a detailed discussion or need professional assistance.

Hi Zubin,

Thanks for sharing your profile.

I am an ISB alum, C014 and have been assisting applicants in their admission journeys since.

Below is my take on your profile :
Academics : Above Average (CA is always a bonus)
Work Experience : Competent
Extra Curricular : Average

From the first impression, it seems that you have all the elements that ISB looks for in an ideal candidate. The CA tag adds the flavor of diversity also. Having said that, it is very important that you get a score in excess of 680 to get a realistic shot at the interview.

The firms you have worked for all big names and hence this will add to your candidature. However, you will need to showcase a logical transition from Corporate Finance to Risk Consulting to Accounting. Apart from demonstrating some kind of correlation between these roles you will also need to showcase how these experiences when complemented with a MBA will get you into investment banking / Corporate Strategy. Also, since I don’t see a lot of team leading, people management experiences in your career, you will need to portray leadership through your experience of interacting with stakeholders based out of multiple geographies.

All in all, you have a very decent chance of getting into ISB as well as other financed B schools (Stern, CBS, HKUST) provided you hit the 700 figure.
Please feel free to get in touch with me at arijit.biswas@crackadmission.com and/or +arijit_biswas89 (Skype) in case you want a detailed discussion.

Cheers

Hi there,

You have a lot of solid ingredients based upon this super quick profile blurb... grades look decent, GMAT ok, some community and EC and promotions.... so nothing ruling you out of consideration for ISB thus far, but a lot will depend upon what is not mentioned here... what have you accomplished at work? How/where have you shown leadership? Have you made an impact and stepped up and taken initiative? What will your recommenders say about you? What are your goals and reasons for the MBA? Etc. If all of that plays out well then you could be considered, but it's obviously a competitive process. Good luck and keep us posted!

Hi,

If you already have two years experience before 31st March of the matriculating year, then you will not be eligible for early entry option, but the regular intake. Your GMAt score and other acads are good. But I lack understanding of your work experience and the impact you have made. Do elaborate on that .

Also, what are your career goals?

Hi GoluMolu,

I will go with the assumption that you have some good achievements at work to have earned those promotions. Your statistical information looks good, although the application outcome will depend upon how strong a package are you able to submit. This includes info on your resume, essays, specifically your career goals and the reco.

Hi Karnika,

I like your work experience because its differentiated. Do elaborate on what you did for CII, what were your achievements and impact created? I'd need this information to know specifically about your profile, but in general I'd assume that it would be logical for you to connect this work experience to aspirational career goals.

Hi @giridharravi260,

With 2 years of work-experience you would not be eligible for EEO. Our first request is to calculate your total work-experience till 31st March 2017. This is what ISB would consider while evaluating your application.

With respect to the profile, academically you've done well. A good GMAT score as well. Extracurriculars are good too, we hope you have continued with the NGO, as it would be important to show sustained social responsibility. Write clear essays on what are your goals, what are your strengths and how they helped you in your accomplishments. This should help you move to the next stage.

Feel free to reach out for a discussion.

Hi golumolu,

You've built yourself a good profile and a well-rounded one. An analytics background helps because it adds a certain amount of differentiation to your profile. A lot will depend on what are your goals and how you can link them to what you've achieved so far. A good application can definitely see you through. Do have a look at our guidelines for the ISB essays: http://www.apphelp.co.in/ISB-Essays.htm

Feel free to reach out for a discussion.

Hi Akanksha,

Trust you are doing well.

Thanks for sharing your profile. I am an ISB alum, C014 and have been assisting applicants in their admission journeys since. Ironically, we already share one alma mater (DCE). I hope there will be an addition to this very soon.

As far as your profile is concerned, I definitely see a lot of pluses – techno managerial experience, certifications, a Masters degree, client facing roles, sports at national level, blogging interests among others.
Having said this, a lot of things will depend on the GMAT score you get. A score in excess of 680 along with a well-articulated application will definitely make your candidature a very competitive one.
Once you get a score, I would urge you to focus on certain areas of your application (mentioned below) :
a. A justification of the gap in your professional experience and a logical reasoning as to why you need an MBA now instead of going back to the corporate world.
b. The career goals you have in mind post the MBA both in the short as well as long term horizon. And how the MBA program from ISB fits in the scheme of things.

Please feel free to get in touch with me at arijit.biswas@crackadmission.com and/or +arijit_biswas89 (Skype) in case you want a detailed discussion or need professional assistance.

Wish you the very best !
Arijit

Hi vigyanboy,

The right answer to R1 and R2 is when you are comfortable with it. A hurriedly-written application can do more harm to your chances of admission than any other aspect of your candidature. Budget for 4-6 weeks for the entire process of writing, reviewing and publishing the essays. Therefore, if you're ready with your GMAT score in September, then apply for R1, else it is better to push it to R2.

Overall you have a good profile. As you belong the super-competitive IT pool, aim for a score of 710+, which would place you above the class average, and of course, the higher the better. Make sure you try and highlight how you are different from your peers using a mix of professional and extracurricular achievements. Also, link them well to your future goals.

Feel free to reach out for a discussion.
