You do have a very competitive profile, complete with a good GMAT score, a fine academic record, and extensive work experience.

Yes, the extra-curricular activities will definitely help :) To add to this, please also ensure that your short-term and long-term goals add up and are in complete sync with your professional experience thus far.

Please evaluate my profile and let me know what minimum GMAT should I target.

Many Thanks
Samreen


Hi @Samreen929,

Apologies for the delay in responding to you but we hope this will be of help to you.

Your strong academic record, international exposure at the professional level, and adept leadership skills throughout are all plus points for sure :) If you are able to tie all these strengths up in your essays, together with putting forth a logical and clear set of career goals, you will definitely stand a good chance.

The concern area, of course, is the GMAT and we strongly recommend that you aim for a score upwards of 700 (needless to say, higher the better:)) 680 will be a bit under the average at ISB. Besides, considering your IT background, the GMAT expectation from you will be a bit on the higher side :)

The good part is that you have some time before the next round. We suggest that you focus on GMAT for now :)

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

Thank you!

All the best!

Hi,

Can you please evaluate my profile for class of 2020. I know it's quite early. 

I am a Marine engineer by profession, working with professionals of different nationalities onboard the ship, and have a work experience of 2.5 years as of now. I graduated from BITS PILANI with a CGPA of 8.8. I took my GMAT in Dec 2017 and scored 690(V40,Q44). Currently, I work with one of the biggest company in the shipping industry. ( fortune 500)

10th marks - 87.8%
(CBSE) 
12th marks - 87.8%
(CBSE) 

Extra curriculars-
1) State level cricket for Rajasthan ( twice) 
2) Was house captain at junior and senior level
3) Lot of prizes in debate and other intra house sports ( cricket, badminton, basketball, swimming. ) 
4) Got "Good Samaritan award" during graduation. 

College level - 
5) Had leadership roles in college for all the years ( was House Cadet Captain - managing around 300 cadets) 
6) Got scholarship for every semester ranging from Rs 30,000 to Rs 10,000 
7) Got "Spirited performance award" upon graduation. 

Current role-

Includes watch keeping as full incharge of main engine and boiler, inventory management, performance analysis of engines, compressors, purifiers, fuel management (worth of hundred thousands of dollars), part of emergency team.

Target school: ISB , IIM-Udaipur PGPX, SP Jain PGDM

Also, can you please suggest me whether it will be a wise decision to do lean six sigma green belt course to make my profile stand out ( given the fact that lot of senior rank mariners also apply to ISB)

Hi sumit411,

Apologies for the delay in responding to you :)

Considering the profile details that you have shared with us, you definitely have a very strong profile. A number of things work for you - your graduation from BITS, fine academic performance, efficient performance at work (leading to promotions), and a range of extra-curricular activities. Of course, much will also depend on how well each of these facts is represented to showcase as you someone who will add value at his workplace, as well as at ISB! You career goals also look well aligned. Yes, the ean six sigma green belt course will definitely be an additional talking point but it most likely would not be a deal-maker :)

Having said the above, we would suggest that you take another shot at the GMAT and aim for a score around 720. This, coupled with a set of well-written essays will stand you a very good chance at ISB! :)

Feel free to get in touch for a free profile evaluation! :)

All the best!

Hello there,

I request you to evaluate my profile and add on if you'd need more information.

I've been working for start-ups for the past two and a half years in the marketing and growth segment. With the company I'm currently working for, I've been based out of Singapore and Jakarta and led projects single-handedly.

I've started my prep for the GMAT and aim to apply for the 1st round in September 2018. When I apply, my total work experience would add up to a little more than 3 years.

CBSE - 9.4 CGPA
+2 (BIEAP) - 89%
Christ Univeristy (BBA - Hons.) - 79%

Attentive to your thoughts. Thanks a lot!


Hi haritrathi94,

Your leadership experience in international contexts will definitely be a huge plus and needs to be portrayed effectively :) Rest, a lot will also depend on your GMAT score, the logical portrayal of your career goals, as well as your engagement with extra-curricular activities. With regard to the GMAT, you must definitely aim for upwards of 710.

In case you need a more detailed discussion about your prospects, please feel free to reach out.

Thanks.

All the best! :)

Hi guys I have completed my bachelors from Jadavpur University and masters from IIT Kanpur. Currently I working in Bain. My GMAT score is 740. I will be applying for ISB upcoming September. Before April session 2019 I will have 2.9 years of experience if I get through. Is it wise enough to apply upcoming year or should I wait for another year until my work ex reaches 4 years.


Hi atanum234,

We are a bit late in responding to you but we hope this reaches you in time, anyway :)

You definitely have a very good pedigree and GMAT score and while we do not have any details about your professional experience, we do feel that your candidature will stand a very fine chance at ISB. Yes, you must apply for the upcoming season. Anything above 2 years works :)

All the best!

Hello,

Please evaluate my profile for 2019 class of ISB.

I am an Automobile Engineer, currently working with BEML Limited (A Ministry of Defense Undertaking) as Assistant Manager- After Sales Service and would have a total work experience of 7 years by March'2018 of which 4 years in Marketing (after sales services) and 3 years in design and development.

I took my GMAT in Jan' 2018 and got an overall score of 690 (48 Q, 37 V, 5.5 AWA, 4 IR :( ). I am going to attempt GMAT one more time in March 2018 and is aiming for 730 overall score.

10th - 64.67% (HBSE)
12th - 63.00% (CBSE)
B.E. - 72.89% (MDU, Rohtak)

I don't have many certificates to vouch for my extracurriculars except for participating in College fest as discipline committee member. Also, my final year project won best industrial project award.

I am leading a team of 3 service engineers and solve and guide service related issues pertaining to our equipment (Earthmoving machinery). We attend customer calls, provide them warranty support/ guidance to resolve service issues. I manage warranty spare part inventory to cater to future warranty failures and optimise spare inventory for reduced material handling costs. I also maintain all records related to equipment failures and provide regular feedback to production and design teams to avoid future failures and suggest design improvements to optimise equipment efficiency. I monitor equipment performance continuously and boost spare parts sales by recommending a purchase of original spares to customers.

I was promoted once in my total stay of 6 years at BEML Limited.

I love to play Snooker and watch cricket. I am learning to play the flute but is currently a novice.

Post my MBA, I want to take on roles in operation management or strategy.

Please suggest me some additional courses or activities which I may indulge myself in to upgrade my profile and boost my chances of selection for 2019 batch.

Hello Pradeeps0013,

Thanks for sharing details about your profile.

Your work experience, complete with managerial exposure, a promotion, and the skill of working in a challenging geography will add much value to your profile. A lot, however, will depend on how well you create your essays i.e how well you are able to portray your skills, achievements, and ability to have an impact on your ISB claa, as well as on your future workplace. The goals definitely seem in line. However, you will need to present the same in a more focused manner, with the short-term and long-term goals flowing in complete sync.

The GMAT is a bit of a concern and it is good to know that you are retaking it. With a 730 and a good set of essays, you have a very strong chance at cracking ISB! :)

Further, with regard to the additional activities you could take up, look for Toastmasters in your vicinity or you could even gain some leadership experience in the CSR domain (more than mere volunteering, look out for leadership roles).

Should you feel the need to discuss your case in greater detail, please reach out to us :)

All the best!

Hi,

Please evaluate my profile. Would appreciate some advice on what range of Gmat scores will I need for ISB.

Basics:
29 year old male from India
Planning to appear for Gmat around July’18 for the program commencing in 2019

Academics:
92.5% in Tenth Grade (CBSE)
90.0% in Twelfth Grade (CBSE)
First Division in B Com (Honors) from Sri Venkateswara College (University of Delhi)
Qualified as a Chartered Accountant in November 2012 (multiple attempts)

Work experience:
5 years of experience post qualifying chartered accountancy:
    2 years as a Senior analyst with the M&A Investment Banking team at one of the Big4 accounting firms (Front end) – Worked on several pitches and some live deals; drafted pitchbooks and IMs; built financial models; undertook company/industry research
    3 years as an associate investment manager with a prominent Real Estate Fund in India (AUM $11 bn+) – Worked end-to-end on 11 deals; analysis and execution; monitoring of assigned portfolio of investments; regularly interfacing with investee management/ consultants/ lawyers/ bankers
    I have received good ratings in appraisals throughout and was promoted this year.
Given nature of roles, both positions were with small teams, and thus I do not have any direct leadership experience however I have worked with other functional teams in a supervisory capacity and mentored interns/ trainees.

Prior to all this, I went through the 3.5 years of mandatory training as part of the CA coursework, and worked with the treasury team of a large Indian financing corporation for 9 months before appearing for the CA Final exams.

Extra-curricular:
Competed at CBSE national level in swimming and water polo.
Served as the captain for the aquatics team in senior year of school and throughout college.
Held student council positions in school – prefect, house captain

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts. :-)


Hi gMatCauthon,

Apologies for the delayed response. Nonetheless, we do hope this will be of help to you :)

You definitely have a strong profile with academics and work experience both in good shape and relevant and while you may not have direct managerial exposure, your experience with leading and mentoring trainees will definitely count as leadership experience. There are, in short, two things that you will need to focus on:

- Crafting a set of essays which are representative of your skill-set and adequately demonstrate your potential to contribute in various capacities. Secondly, and very importantly, you will need to put forth a set of career goals, wherein the short-term and long-term goals align seamlessly with your current work ex :)
- The GMAT score you should be targetting must definitely be upwards of 700. Of course, higher the better :)

In case you need any other help, please reach out to us.

Thanks :)

All the best!

I love to play Snooker and watch cricket. I am learning to play the flute but is currently a novice.

Post my MBA, I want to take on roles in operation management or strategy.

Target Schools: ISB, IIMA- PGPX, IIMB- EPGP, IIMC- PGPEX and XLRI- GMP (2019 Batch)

Please suggest me some additional courses or activities which I may indulge myself in to upgrade my profile and boost my chances of selection for 2019 batch.

I really appreciate the time you would take out to evaluate my profile. Thank you in advance.


Hello Pradeeps0013,

Thanks for sharing details about your profile.

Your work experience, complete with managerial exposure, a promotion, and the skill of working in a challenging geography will add much value to your profile. A lot, however, will depend on how well you create your essays i.e how well you are able to portray your skills, achievements, and ability to have an impact on your ISB claa, as well as on your future workplace. The goals definitely seem in line. However, you will need to present the same in a more focused manner, with the short-term and long-term goals flowing in complete sync.

The GMAT is a bit of a concern and it is good to know that you are retaking it. With a 730 and a good set of essays, you have a very strong chance at cracking ISB! :)

Further, with regard to the additional activities you could take up, look for Toastmasters in your vicinity or you could even gain some leadership experience in the CSR domain (more than mere volunteering, look out for leadership roles).

Should you feel the need to discuss your case in greater detail, please reach out to us :)

All the best!

Thank you very much for taking out time to write back.

Hi satarupa,

WIth significant achievements at work, some leadership experience, and experience in the automotive domain (slightly differentiated), you definitely have a favourable profile :)

Having said the above, you must focus on a score upwards of 700, along with getting some leadership experience in the CSR domain/NGO. Basically, look at adding a few more talking points to your profile :)

All the best! :)

Hi Ayan4

Thanks for sharing your details.

While the extent of your professional experience and GPA look in good shape, much will depend on your work-place achievements, leadership experience, and team skills and since you have not shared the same in detail, it will be a bit difficult for us to comment on the same. Certainly, the GMAT score is also alright. However, considering you were able to score this in only one attempt, we suggest you retake the test once more (you will definitely be able to boost this :)). Further, considering there is still some time at hand, we suggest that you add some additional talking points to your profile in terms of CSR experience/Toastmaster etc. :)

In short, you do have a good chance at cracking ISB, already but if you keep the above points in mind, you will immensely boost your chances :)

In case you need any other help, please reach out to us.

All the best!

Below is my short SOP for other college. Kindly evaluate my profile. Are there any chances for ISB call?
I need to take my GMAT yet. What score is ideal for me.

"The best of our capabilities and strengths are tested and improved when we willingly take on challenges. Since my childhood I have done exactly that, finding a solution to every problem that I am faced with thus creating a confidence to take charge of my destiny. I have been intrigued by the intricacies involved in everyday businesses while I worked for Aaruush, the Tech Fest at SRM University. As part of my responsibilities, I visited Andhra Pradesh campaigning for our college fest and brought a record 250 plus registrations which has since become the benchmark. Being a strong academic performer helped in securing employment in the first placement session itself while in my final year of graduation.
While working for Cognizant Technology Solutions, I quickly and successfully grasped the work pattern and the team structure that exists at MNC’s. My skills where recognized when my onsite manager put me in charge to develop a new method of software testing using SOAP UI tool. Later I joined our family business where my prime responsibilities included developing strategic project goals, creating team structure and assigning tasks. It enlightened me about employee psychology, team management, decision making and handling critical situations.
Being a person who has always appreciated aesthetic perfection with simplicity at work, web development is a field that I have incorporated that in. Apart from my family business, I developed a website "mpag.in" and later started a web development company named "Bright Look", taking on small-scale web development projects. This was aided by my knowledge on coding and work experience gained at CTS and the confidence of running the family business.
My journey thus far has made me realize, to take up higher management roles and to create a niche in current competitive market scenario, one must have a strong insight into managerial skills. With its high quality mentoring and excellent exposure towards the competitive business world, I strongly believe that a premier institute like --------- at this point in my career would help me understand the nuances of business and management."

Work experience:
Cognizant Technology Solutions - 10months (Sep 2015 - Jul 2016)
Family business - till date (Jul 2016 - till date)

Hi taruntejp,

You have a fine academic background and that will certainly be a positive. However, the SOP will need a lot more working upon for example (and most importantly): your career goals are completely absent from the same. Please remember that the career goals must be in complete sync with your existing professional experience.

The GMAT score you must target depends, among other things, on the schools you are looking to apply to. However, in the case of ISB, you must definitely be targetting upwards of 710! :) The higher the better :)

We would like to take this opportunity to offer you a free profile evaluation. Should you feel the need for the same, please feel free to reach out to us.

Thanks! :)

Hi Susheem,

Thanks for sharing the details.

You have a fine pedigree and a profile complete with good academic grades. The GMAT, too, is alright. However, we would recommend that if possible, consider retaking the same to improve upon your verbal score.

For a detailed profile evaluation, we will require more information in terms of your leadership abilities, professional achievements, and technical skill-set. Feel free to share the same with us :)

All the best!
