Hi tatz,

Thanks for sharing your query.

Your work experience is definitely on the higher side considering the ISB average. However, this shouldn't be much of an issue if you are able to appropriately address your need for an MBA at this stage of your career and how ISB fits in with your career goals. Your essays must also portray your strengths and achievements (particularly at the professional level) but since you have not quite shared those details, we are unable to comment on the same.

The extra-curricular activities seem alright and you should be able to focus on the all-around personality.

At this point, you must focus on two things (primarily):
- Your GMAT: The higher your score the better your chances will be; you must definitely be looking at a score upwards of 710.
- Your essays: Ensure you prepare a stellar set of essays keeping the above-mentioned points in mind.

If you are able to achieve the above, you will have a good chance at making it to ISB :)

We would like to take this opportunity to offer you a detailed profile evaluation for free. Should you feel a need for the same, please do get in touch with us.

All the best!

Hi All,

Please help me evaluate my chances for ISB admission based on the following info:

1. GMAT score - 700.
2. Class 10th - 89%.
3. Diploma in Electronics and Telecomm : 83%
4. BE in Electronics and Telecomm : 60%

Professional experience:

I have an experience of 4.5 years in IT industry (Infosys Ltd). Out of this 1.5 years is onsite experience. I have no significant extra-curricular achievements to my name.


Hi Vish03,

We are a bit late in responding to you but we hope this will be of help to you still.

Considering you belong to an overrepresented applicant group, we would recommend that you retake the GMAT. A higher score will help you stand out in the applicant group. It becomes even more important considering your lack of extracurriculars.

Spend the next few months building your profile (professional/extra-curricular). While we do not have any details of your achievements/responsibilities/leadership experience at work, we do recommend that you continue performing in your current role in order to have points you can talk about in your essays.

For a detailed profile evaluation, you could share your Resume with us :)

All the best!

Dear Expert,

Thanks alot for evaluating my profile and presenting it in a good manner.
I got confused with your statement about my work experience. Do you think that, based upon my experience, I should aim for some other colleges rather than ISB ?
I am targeting IIM A also and I have checked the work ex of current batch which is in line with my experience tenure.

I request you to suggest some good B schools based on my work ex.

My strengths and achievements :
1) My dedication towards work which has resulted in getting top rating always.
2) Got selected as Management Trainee among batch of 400 GETs of that year.
3) Rewarded as one of the most promising employee of the company.
4) Working for a project worth Rs 1400 crore
5) Project co coordinator for bidding of a project worth Rs 20 000 crore

Hi tatz,

You could definitely look at applying to ISB! :) Also, the achievements look good. We only need to represent them well in your essays.
With regard to the schools, we suggest that you take the GMAT as the same will play a major role in helping select the schools.

All the best!

Hi mayank1988piitmishka

In order to offset your low academic scores, you will need to work on getting a high GMAT score and we suggest that you strongly focus on the same. At the same time, considering the dearth in extra-curriculars in your profile, it would be a good idea for you to take up membership in a professional club, as well as get some leadership experience in the social sector.

Once all of the above is taken care of, you will need to prepare a set of essays that showcase a logical sync among your existing experience, short-term goals, and long-term aspirations. Considering your extensive professional experience, you will need to appropriately address how the MBA fits in with your plans and will add to your competencies (this bit becomes particularly crucial in your case) :)

Hope this helps.

All the best!

Hi Priyanka8793,

Thanks for sharing all the details.

The good news is that your GMAT looks in good shape and is a notch above the ISB average and this will definitely work for you :)
Having said the above, with a typical IT profile, a lot will also depend on how you are able to differentiate your profile from the rest of the applicant pool - through achievements, leadership experience, extra-curricular and so on. Since you haven't shared any of these details with us, it will be difficult for us to evaluate the same.

To add to the above, you will also need to focus on projecting a set of career goals that seamlessly align with your profile :)

If you are able to take care of the above, things look good for you. However, should you feel the need for a free profile evaluation in greater detail, please feel free to reach out to us. Of course, please do provide us some more information pertaining to your profile.

All the best! :)

Hi Nishant_Prakash,

Thanks for sharing your query.

You could consider the following options:
- Retaking the GMAT: In order to offset your low academic scores, you could aim at a higher GMAT score. Besides, 700 is a bit under the ISB average and a higher score may help boost your chances considerably.
- Look at garnering some social sector experience in the next few months. Take on volunteering roles that allow you to showcase as well as hone your leadership skills.
- Consider joining professional clubs that can help boost a certain skill-set for instance: Toastmasters for public speaking skills :)

There is an entire gamut of things one can do. Eventually, you may need to take a call on what you will be able to manage alongside your work schedule :)

Should you feel the need to discuss this in greater detail, feel free to approach us for a free profile evaluation.

All the best! :)

Hi,
I am a typical indian IT male

I would like to know the strength of my profile for ISB class of 2019, please tell me what are my pros and cons and what score should I be targeting in GMAT??

10th: 73%
12th:72%
B.tech: 70%
Bachelors from - SRM University Chennai
Bachelors Degree - instrumentation and control engineering

Work Details:

Company - TCS
Experience - 5 years completed in August 2017
Designation - IT analyst

Work ex: I have worked in the CoE ( centre of excellence)dept for performance testing for 4 years.. I was the only one to be offered this role as a fresher after training as normally testers with atleast 3 years exp. Are considered for this dept. I was recommended by the faculties..
CoE guys handle testing projects when the designated team for that project is unable to come up with a solution.. in short we are considered to be the best who are approached only when normal solutions fail..

I have worked for about 15 different clients in 5.5 years which include Citi bank from bfs sector, Tata steel Netherlands in energy sector, target in retail sector, cencosud in e-retailers sector.

I was nominated by my project manager for a leadership training program last year..

I have been supervising a team of 10 for last 1.5 years..
I have been awarded " on the spot" award and " star team award" twice..

I have been awarded " best faculty award " four times..

I have been awarded for completing highest numbers of internal certifications in a quarter..

There are more awards but to keep it short, I am quite good at what I do..



Extra circular activities: I am a volunteer at " speak for animals" for past 2 years, during which I have fostered about 20 dogs.. I just love it.. all my free time goes into finding dogs that are abused or abandoned or unhealthy and bring them back to a healthy life..
I am a member of our company's toastmasters club.
I actively participate in 10k marathons. Till now completed 6 10k runs. Although I weigh 112 kgs.lol
I am a member of the local photography club in Bhubaneswar.



Kindly evaluate my profile and let me know my chances of getting into ISB class of 2019 because I am quite afraid that even if I get 700+ in GMAT my 10th and 12th marks will pose a big problem in getting I to ISB..

I would like to know the strength of my profile for ISB class of 2019, please tell me what are my pros and cons and what score should I be targeting in GMAT??

10th: 73%
12th:72%
B.tech: 70%
Bachelors from - SRM University Chennai
Bachelors Degree - instrumentation and control engineering

Work Details:

Company - TCS
Experience - 5 years completed in August 2017
Designation - IT analyst

Work ex: I have worked in the CoE ( centre of excellence)dept for performance testing for 4 years.. I was the only one to be offered this role as a fresher after training as normally testers with atleast 3 years exp. Are considered for this dept. I was recommended by the faculties..
CoE guys handle testing projects when the designated team for that project is unable to come up with a solution.. in short we are considered to be the best who are approached only when normal solutions fail..

I have worked for about 15 different clients in 5.5 years which include Citi bank from bfs sector, Tata steel Netherlands in energy sector, target in retail sector, cencosud in e-retailers sector.

I was nominated by my project manager for a leadership training program last year..

I have been supervising a team of 10 for last 1.5 years..
I have been awarded " on the spot" award and " star team award" twice..

I have been awarded " best faculty award " four times..

I have been awarded for completing highest numbers of internal certifications in a quarter..

There are more awards but to keep it short, I am quite good at what I do..



Extra circular activities: I am a volunteer at " speak for animals" for past 2 years, during which I have fostered about 20 dogs.. I just love it.. all my free time goes into finding dogs that are abused or abandoned or unhealthy and bring them back to a healthy life..
I am a member of our company's toastmasters club.
I actively participate in 10k marathons. Till now completed 6 10k runs. Although I weigh 112 kgs.lol
I am a member of the local photography club in Bhubaneswar.



Kindly evaluate my profile and let me know my chances of getting into ISB class of 2019 because I am quite afraid that even if I get 700+ in GMAT my 10th and 12th marks will pose a big problem in getting I to ISB..

Hi Jitender singh,

Thanks for sharing your query.

Frankly, considering your work experience (complete with awards and leadership experience), as well as your participation in extra-curricular activities, you have a lot working for you. That you have worked with international clients will also hold value.

Having said the above, here are a few things that will be very crucial in ensuring you have a very good chance with your application:
- GMAT ~ Considering you belong to an overrepresented pool of applicants, you will need to look for a score upwards of 730. 700 falls a bit under the average and a higher GMAT score will play a very important role in order for you to differentiate your profile. You have time on hand and we are confident you will be able to get the desired score :)

- Taking on a leadership role ~ You definitely have a fair bit of social sector experience. What you could look at is getting some leadership experience in this sphere.

- Keep performing in your current role so you have a lot of talking points in your profile (in terms of achievements and responsibilities)

- Once all of the above has been taken care of, you will need to focus on creating a stellar application, complete with a set of essays which are truly reflective of your potential and showcase a strong sync between your experience and future goals.

Should you feel the need for a detailed discussion, feel free to reach out to us.

Thanks.

All the best!
