I'm more interested in knowing about the Need Based and Merit Based Waiver in the Tution Fee as the only source of income for parents is FD interests and majority of that goes into medical expenses for them.


Wow Nitesh! excellent GMAT score. ISB should give you both need based and merit based scholarships. :-)

Wishes apart, I am sending you the link for the scholarships. For the need based scholl, you will have to write an essay saying why you should be considered. The merit based scholl is given to students without any supplemental material - you can say that if they really like you, they are likely to offer you one. So, submitting a great application, followed with a strong interview will help. And ofcourse, you have that enviable GMAT score...

Here is the link that will give you their criteria: http://www.isb.edu/pgp/fees-financing/Scholarships

Thanks a lot for your kind words.. :-)

Hi! Please evaluate my profile -

ISB - Re-applicant

Age: 28 (as on Sept 2017)

GMAT: 700
10th (ICSE): 84.33%
12th (ISC): 76.33%
B.E. (MIT Manipal): 7.2

Involved in various extra-curricular activities through school and college like Street Plays, Short-Story writing, GK quizzes, Poetry, Western Vocals, etc.

Work Exp:

5 years 3 months total (as on Sep'17 - excluding 6 months internship at Oracle)

1.5 years: Oracle India (Associate Applications Engineer)
3.7 years: ZS Associates (Associate Consultant)

In the last couple of months, I've moved to a strongly analytics focused team. No international travel for work yet (if that matters). At work too, I've been involved in some extra-curricular activities like leading a team of ~200 odd employees for the annual events.

Other than that, I love traveling and have covered most of Karnataka, Maharashtra, Kerala etc.

I had applied last year but my application and essays were weak - also mentioned in the feedback from ISB. But my biggest concern is getting stuck with Pharma domain. If I do get into ISB, I'm worried that my options will be limited as by that time I would have 4.3 years work exp with ZS. This might severely limit my chances of switching industries/ move out of Pharma. I'm more inclined towards Management Consulting and E-commerce - would ZS be a barrier in the movement?

Also, is there anything else I can work on? I'm planning to retake GMAT by Nov end and apply in R2. Just as an FYI, I had gotten in to NTU last year but didn't join as I only heard bad reviews from the current students.

Thanks!


Hi Erabm1439s,

We think you have a good profile and a score of 700 shouldn't really bog you down. We also think that you're over-worrying about post MBA prospects. As you probably know, every year ex-ZS students transition into different domains including Management Consulting. After all, isn't ISB the right platform to make the shift?

What you should focus on right now is your application: Make sure your application is personalized with anecdotes and examples that showcase your strengths. Ensure that your goals are in align with what you have achieved so far. Demonstrating a clear vision and a career path based on what you have accomplished so far will be the key to cracking this.


Thanks Apphelp!
I'll rephrase my question to - will spending 4.3 years at ZS have an impact on my post-MBA chances? Any help is much appreciated :)

ZS is a great company to work with, so I'd not worry too much about that. Infact if you are consulting your clients over there, you have already built a core set of skills which will be useful in a management consulting role. So my suggestion is- play to your strengths and draw out the linkages between what you have done in the past, what you wish to do in the future, what skills have you already built and why do you need an MBA for the skills you lack!

As a reapplicant, you will really have to shine through this year's applicant pool. Reflection on what you did wrong last year will be critical for not repeating those same mistakes. So figure out, what was "weak" in those weak essays last year.


Thanks a lot MBADecoder! I'll keep these points in mind :)

Hi there,

From what I can tell so FAR your profile and GMAT sound viable for the schools you are focusing on, but of course any additional points can potentially help when things are so competitive. So IF you feel a higher score could be within reach without a huge additional effort (based upon practice test scores and your own assessment of your ability), then there's no reason not to try just in case it helps! But you know yourself best, so if you feel you're tapped-out test score wise you can also move forward with applications.

Hi! Please evaluate my profile.

Currently working as a Senior Consultant in Poland.

In terms of extra curricular, I was elected House Captain in my last year of schooling, captained school/club cricket teams for 3 years, Played district level cricket in the Under 15 levels, active member of Rotract club during my college days and Community service groups at work.

In terms of the GMAT, i am taking on 30th Sept, but i am stuck around the 670 levels. Would that be a okay score for my profile? Target Schools: ISB, IE, NUS, Nanyang, EDHEC.

Looking forward to your feedback!


Hi,
I like your international experience for ISB; try to emphasize what you've learned and gained from those experiences. Your involvement is a plus too. Work experience sounds solid but I don't know the full details of what you've accomplished and the impact you've had. In terms of GMAT, GOOD LUCK on the 30th, and stay positive... many do see improvements from highest practice tests to the real-deal. It'd be great to be a little higher, stay optimistic and see what happens! Feel free to reach out afterwards for more input.

Hi Erabm1439s,

No it does not. :) If anything, pre-MBA consulting is a great role to have and ZS is a great brand on the resume.

Hi mdgk,

ISB EEO is designed for applicants with less than 24 months of full-time work experience to secure their admission to the ISB PGP. Since ISB does not expect exemplary professional achievements from you with lesser work-experience, the focus of your application would be your academic background, GMAT and extracurriculars. While academics are okay, you would need more compelling extracurriculars (or even GMAT or any other achievements). Overall, exemplary essays can see you through, if you can build in that wow factor that can differentiate you from your peers.

Hi pm12345,

You have a good profile. Since academics are a crucial part of the EEO, it would make sense to give GMAT another shot (especially if you were scoring higher in mock tests). Boosting GMAT by 20-30 points will make a lot of difference to your application.

Hi pm12345,

I am an ISB alum CO14, and through my admission consulting firm, CrackAdmission (www.crackadmission.com) have been assisting applicants in their journey to global business schools. Please find below my evaluation of your profile :

Strengths of your candidature : IIT KGP Brand name, Accelerated Promotion, International Experience, Cricket related honours and positions of responsibilities, Internships across broad spectrum of industries, Consistent Scholarship recipient, NGO Experience with an international community, switch to a research firm after doing a masters in Chemistry.

However, there are certain aspects of your candidature that might pull you down – average GMAT, average CGPA.
I am confident that with a strong application where you demonstrate your strengths and how they will help you to add value to the ISB community, you can definitely raise positive interests of the admission committee in R1 with your current score. Having said that, you will need to showcase very clearly as to how you are certain that you will need ISB’s MBA program, almost 1.5 years before you join the institution. Also, what you will be doing in the next 1 year to make the maximum out of the ISB program and also improve your chances to achieving your post MBA goals.

Please feel free to get in touch with me at contact@crackadmission.com and/or +919701215544 (Calling) in case you want a detailed discussion.

Wish you the very best.

Cheers
CrackAdmission Team

Hi Udit,
Trust you are doing well.
I am an ISB alum, CO14, and have been assisting applicants in their admission journeys o global business schools for the last few years. Please find below my take on your profile.
ISB loves CA’s to be part of its classroom as CA’s bring the much needed finance/taxation experience to the table. This in itself gives you an edge over a lot of people in the application pool. Having said that, this information is open source and off late a lot of CAs have been applying to ISB thus making the pool more competitive.
Your experience with a global name such as E&Y validates your credentials. However, you will need to clearly state what will be your post MBA goals and how your current experience and ISB’s PGP program will complement to help you achieve the goals.
Apart from the obvious facts as to how a CA adds value to the classroom, you will have to be very specific how you ‘Udit’ will benefit the classroom. This has to be something highly correlated to the specific projects you have worked on and expertise you have developed.
As far as volunteer experience is concerned, you will need to call out what motivates you to contribute, what have you learnt from these engagements, how has it influenced your personality and what impact you have had.
It is common notion that role of a CA is mostly as an individual contributor. Therefore it become critical for you to showcase where and how you have demonstrated leadership and team management.
In a nutshell, with a highly articulated application (Essays + LOR + form) where you portray clarity in your thoughts, you have a good shot at raising interests of the admission committee.
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 !!
Cheers

To improve your chances I would highly recommend re-taking GMAT and get 700+. Thus target R-2 assuming you still need to work on your application. Good luck!

You might have to retake the GMAT as the competition is pretty intense for IT. Also, make sure that you do not include College Cultural Secretary & College and school cricket team in your Extra Curricular. Bschools looks for Extra Curricular which are more recent, usually in the last 3 to 4 years. When you say that you have been in the XYZ committee always mention the impact you had, designations alone don't carry much importance.

The international experience and extra curricular definitely strengthens your case. If you can get a GMAT of around 700, you should have a strong overall profile.
