Yup. Confirmed it. Thanks btw.

It is bit confusing though. We are so used to getting confirmatory email that not having it raises suspicion. :)

Hi All

I am a B.Tech graduate from a Tier 2 college in India. I have 2 years experience in UCO Bank as Assistant Manager and along with that I have passed Level 2 exam of CFA Program and I do independent Equity Research. I am targeting for the batch of 2019.
SSS- 87.5%
+2- 75.00%
Btech- 68.50%

Need evaluation on my profile.

Many parameters are missing. Please mention your age, GMAT details of work exp ( promotion, leadership evidence), community involvement and most importantly your post MBA goals.



Thanks for your reply

I am 23 years old and planning to give GMAT in December'17.
Right now I am leading a team of 5-6 members involved in performing all operations of the bank, right from handling customers to back office work.

I am a national level badminton player and was the captain of my college badminton team. I was involved in organizing various cultural events in my college and being a member of the placement team, I have organized various placement camps in the college.

I want to move to Equity Research and Portfolio Management post my MBA and for that I am managing a small portfolio as an evaluation of my work.

I want to know my chances and approximate score that I should target.


Hi pramraika,

We are a bit late in replying to you but we do hope this reaches you in time.

You have a fairly good profile for ISB, complete with leadership experience and strong extra-curricular engagement. While targetting a score of 720+ will give you a very good chance at ISB, a lot will also depend on how well you create your application. Do remember to play on your strengths and achievements, as well as show a logical sync between your existing experience and future goals and how the MBA will help bridge the gap :)

Should you feel the need for a detailed profile evaluation, feel free to reach out to us :)

All the best!

Hi Siva,

Thanks for posting your details. From the limited info here, I would say your diversified entrepreneurial experience will be valuable and memorable in the application process. However I would still anticipate it may be an uphill battle for you, given where your GMAT is at, and the shorter length of your full-time post-undergrad work experience, given that the average incoming student at INSEAD has close to 6 years. Yes the startup experience earlier will count for something, but they do still look at that post-undergrad years #. I'm also gathering that you don't have much in terms of community or international experience. Certainly you can always give it a shot with the hopes that your experience will garner enough interest, and try again in another year if needed, and perhaps a more thorough resume review would allow us to better assess that experience (www.mbamission.com/consult if interested). (Side not also curious about your note about 'dropped out of Btech). But for INSEAD for this year/point in your career in my view, I'd say next year may be more ideal if possible... stronger GMAT could help if it was an option, and in terms of other schools to look at, there are options such as HEC, IE, ESADE, IESE, Bocconi, Imperial, CASS for example...... you'd still be competing against applicants with higher GMAT and more experience and community/international experiences, but chances are slightly higher than INSEAD. Hope that helps, good luck!

Hi Guys!

Almost all ISB (PGP) admissions interviews are taken by ISB Alums. That’s why I have planned mock interviews with ISB Alums who have experience of taking over 100 interviews. There will be 2 interviews conducted, each with a different ISB Alum and of course, feedback provided later. But there are limited slots available for select few (10 to be precise). Please PM me if you guys are interested.

Best,

You have pretty decent grades in 10th and 12th but not for graduation. Also, compared to those in this work experience range, you would be better off with a GMAt score 20-30 points higher, which would serve to in part offset the graduation scores being low. That said, more than how many start ups you have been part of, failed/ succeeded or mentored, what is important is what value did you add/ take away and how the MBA is important to you in your short and long term goals. Hope that helps. In case you need further customised help, please feel free to PM. Good luck!

Hi Sirakri,

Apologies for the delayed response but we hope this reaches you in time.

The good part about your profile is that you have a differentiated profile, complete with start-up (entrepreneurial) experience that is sought after by ISB.

Having said the above, you BBA scores are a bit of a concern. Further, while 700 on GMAT is alright, we would recommend that your push for a slightly higher score to help minimize the impact of your GPA. However, what is most important at this point is how well you project your future goals, detail out the plain for scaling your business, and portray how the MBA will support you in the same :) An application that clearly explains the relevance of the MBA in your journey coupled with a slightly boosted GMAT score will make you a strong fit for the ISB program.

We would like to take this opportunity to offer you a free profile evaluation and should you feel the need for a detailed discussion around the same, do reach out to us :)

All the best! :)

Hello, shreyascashyap,

You definitely have a strong profile, complete with international exposure, decent extra-curriculars, and strong academic scores (at least at the school level). Your GMAT score is also around the median score at ISB. Both of these factors make you a strong candidate.

Having said the above, a lot will depend on how well you present your strengths and achievements, as well as the how strongly your portray the sync among your existing experience, short-term goals, and long-term vision. There are a good two months before you submit your application and we strongly recommend that you put in a good amount of time in drafting a set of quality essays :)

Should you feel the need for a detailed discussion, please feel free to reach out :) We will be happy to help!

All the best!

A lot will depend upon your GMAT score- that's an important element in the admissions process.
What you have mentioned here seems good, but I am missing some more information - what are your achievements at work, how has your career progressed? why do you want an MBA and what will you do after the MBA?

Having more accomplishments at work as compared to college is a good thing- college was in the past, whereas professional achievements are current. Don't be guilty about it :)

I am so sorry, forgot to add that. I have a keen interest in finance, I realized that I want to be in equity research, hence I started working towards CFA. Preparing for CFA has helped me a lot in all spheres of life. I work in an excellent IB, However a role change requires a good base. ISB will give me that base and I want to re-brand myself as an equity research analyst. Post my MBA intend to give my CFA level 3 exam.

Few of my achievements at work : I have saved over 150 hours worth of work with my VBA based applications.
2. Managing my day to day work + my toastmasters club has taught me some great skills.
3. Consistent performance throughout my tenure.

Additionally, I have gained a very keen interest towards home automation. I am a raspberry pi enthusiast too, and I intend to build my own devices. This is a side hobby I have.

I am focused on getting a decent GMAT score. My recent mgmat mock 1 score was 540. I have good amount of mocks lined up, spending time equally on verbal and quant. Hopefully I will be able to get a good score here.

Thanks for your reply. I look forward to hear more.

Hi. Would appreciate it if the experts could shed some light on my chances and evaluate my profile.
Male - 28

10th - 96% ( Karnataka state board, one of the highest in the state)
12th - 78.66% (Karnataka state board)
Engineering - 66.77% First Class (Instrumentation Engineering)

GMAT - 710 Q-47 V-40 AWA-5 IR-8

Work exp - total 69 months by Mar'18, out of which 45 months have been abroad at South Korea, Iran (1+ year), UAE and Saudi Arabia(1+year). Work has been mostly in offshore drilling rigs and petro-chemical and power plants. I work in the field of industrial plant automation and work for a Japanese MNC. Worked on the world's largest operational gas field.
Post-MBA: I want to move to a EPC company in either the petrochem or power industries and work in operations/strategy. I have experienced the basics of constructing and running a plant(as a vendor), now want to get more hands on and go into a firm that does the actual planning and design.
Extra curricular - brown belt in karate, practice mixed martial arts. Volunteer at a NGO working to improve green cover in cities over the weekend.


Hi Shreyas,
Things look good at your end- the international experience sounds solid. Given your operations role on the rig, I am assuming you have good leadership stories to tell, which will help to differentiate you. I think your career goals need more thinking in terms of how aspirational they are and whether they need an MBA at all- an MBA is not the norm in EPC companies, so the post MBA position and the longer term goals should help you achieve a position that another two-three years of work experience will not open up to you.

Here is my 2 cents:

  • Please remember that you need to show your contribution and impact in any activity rather than mere participation or impressive designations. Do not forget to talk about the impact you had on others as a toastmaster.
  • Do not focus on multiple extra curricular activities ( especially those that are more than years old). Instead, highlight your impact and passion in only one or two of them.
  • Do not focus on highlighting Java or python skills. These skills are important to an MS program , not an MBA. Morever, these skills will not differentiate you from the pool.
  • If possible, you should consider explaining the low GPA in an optional essay.

Hi Vivek, thanks for your reply.

I would definitely incorporate these for my low GPA. My aim is to show my CFA as a compensation against my low score. My low score was primarily due to my involvement in other activities, as I grew older I was able to manage my time better and hence was able to take on more activities.
