Dear Ashutosh

Thanks for posting. Here is our assessment:
- Your academics are quite decent, and VIT is a known school, so you are good on that front.
- The internships dont count for too much for the PGP, unless there is something exceptional you can demonstrate there. They will also not count as work experience. Your ECA are ok, and a bit technically oriented. Try and show involvement and achievement in areas that go beyond your core work or education as well - you need not necessarily have won awards there; even participation counts.
- Please mention more details around your experience at Veritas - what is your role, and what have you achieved? By way of quantum, 36 months of experience is fine.
- If you are targeting R1 applications, please work on the app simultaneously before you take the GMAT, as you will have little time post the GMAT (5 days) to meet the ISB deadline.
- Aim as high as you can on the GMAT. While 700 is a good minimum, 720 or above would be preferable.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.

Hello ashutoshbhole

It is difficult to suggest one number due to the lack of 'qualitative' info such as career progression, achievements etc.
However I would recommend a minimum 720+ (720 is the new 700 to say so) to stay above ISB's average.
Remember GMAT is just piece of the admissions puzzle. To better suggest a score, more than years industry or role, one would need to understand the nature of your work, accomplishments and real business impact. So while college achievements and extracurricular activities can work (if they are stellar) focus more on work related achievements. This will also help bring out your diversity which is another major factor in admissions.
Lastly the most important point is Career Goals. What are your future plans and why is an MBA an absolute necessity to achieving those plans? Why from ISB? Without a compelling reason you application is not just weak, but also incomplete. Plus the goals have to fit what ISB can offer. A GMAT score of 760 will also not be able to compensate for that.
To conclude ISB will look at your profile holistically on Acads+Quality of Work Ex+Diversity+Career Goals. You will need a spike in at least 2-3 of these 4 factors. If you have a spike in Work Ex+Diversity+CareerGoals, you could get an admission with a 650 GMAT. But the info you provided does not convey so.

Hello ashutoshbhole,

You certainly have a fine academic background and good leadership experience at the college level. However, there are three things that ISB would really value:

- More details of your progress at Veritas: While you haven't quite shared these details with us, ISB will be interested to learn how you have progressed at Veritas, the leadership potential you have displayed and the achievements you have had. Such information will give the Admissions Committee an idea of who you really are, much beyond what you will be able to present in your essays.
- Career Goals: One of the most important bits of your application is your plan post MBA. Remember, that you need to put forth clearly defined short-term and long-term goals and both should logically sync with each other. The Admissions Committee wants to know why you need an MBA and how it fits in with your plans.
- GMAT: While 700 is a decent target, it is still under the average for ISB. Hence, it is strongly recommended that you target a score upwards of 720.

Hope this helped.

All the best!

Hello sethgaurang

For reasons mentioned here- ISB will look at your profile holistically and 'qualitatively'.
It will help better to understand your career progression, achievements and positive impact on the business more than just job responsibilities. That is what ISB will be interested in.
Leading people is a good sign, bring our stories where your contributions helped the business (not just technical contribution) such as saving man hours, cutting costs or increasing profitability.
Past Acads are ok, but GMAT is much lower than the ISB average. That means you will need to be stellar in other areas such as work ex- the reason why I emphasize on bringing out the 'quality' side of your work. I will strongly recommend if your can re-take the GMAT and get a 720+.
The knowledge of German is good, though other extracurricular do not come out as very strong (may depend on the overall story you plan to tell). A good extracurricular is where you have a long term and serious relationship along with a meaningful impact on your life (personal or professional) or the life of others.
Coming to the last and biggest piece of the admissions puzzle- Why MBA and Why ISB? What are your career goals and why is an MBA from ISB an absolute necessity to achieve these goals? Unfortunately this info is missing and will decide a lot.
ISB will evaluate your candidature on Acads+Quality of WorkEx+Diversity+Career Goals. You will need a spike in at least 3 out of these 4 factors to stand a fighting chance. Since there isn't a spike in acads currently, your will need to showcase stellar achievements in work, extracurricular and highlight compelling reasons to pursue and MBA.
How well you tie this in your written application will decide the final outcome.
Should you feel the need to discuss this further, let me know.

Hi sethgaurang,

Over the past few years, we've seen more and more folks from an operations ground apply to ISB. With 4 years of work experience, the competition becomes even more fierce. A few thoughts on your profile:

- Managing a team of 30 is great and make sure to highlight contributions and learnings from your managerial experience

- A GMAT score of 680 will definitely pull you down. While a higher GMAT does not guarantee you admission, lower than class average (of about 710) can diminish your chances of getting through. There is still time before the R1 deadline and we recommend you definitely give GMAT another shot

- Extracurriculars can be huge differentiators and we think these is definitely an area of improvement. You would need something more current and more hands-on to show that you are a well-rounded personality.

- You haven't spoken about your goals and this is often the most important part of the application, esp for essay 2. Spend some time articulating how can ISB help you reach your goals?

Overall, a well-balanced application with an improved GMAT score can see you through.

Hi sethgaurang,

While you have a had a pretty decent academic career and valuable leadership experience at the professional level, your GMAT score falls at least thirty points under the ISB average. As a result, we strongly recommend a GMAT retake and you must aim for a score upwards of 720.

Having said that, the GMAT is only one component of the applications process and you will have to put forth a set of essays that not only speak about your career progression and achievements but also portray a set of career goals, wherein your short-term and long-term career goals are in sync with your existing experience.

If you are able to take care of the above-mentioned points, you will have a good chance of cracking ISB!

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

All the best! :-)

Hi sethgaurang, any chance you could re-appear in GMAT, to push that 680 by 20-30 points?

The thing is that 680 is definitely not a show-stopper, but it could help your cause if your current score goes up Gurang. Your work-experience certainly puts you in a diverse pool, but right now I don't get a glimpse on your post-MBA goals.

The goals need to be thought thru and articulated.

Hello ShabariSS

I wish there was a simple answer to this, but there isn't.
ISB will look at your profile holistically on 6 admission factors (read here)
The info you have provided covers just your stats and 'quantitative' part of the profile.
ISB is more interested in the 'qualitative' side. Quality of Work Ex, Career Progression, Achievements, Diversity and Post MBA goals that are realistic and fit your profile.
With the current info best I can recommend is 720+. However remember the quality of your profile will decide whether a 650 is enough or even a 750 is too low.

Hello BhargavaB

Both exams are accepted. Since you have already prepared for the GRE and are confident of taking this score up considerably, then take the GRE.
Or you could take a few GMAT mock tests (click here for one) and see if you find the GMAT easier/comfortable for your style. If yes, then go ahead with the GMAT.
But remember to put in equal effort on building your written application, as ultimately that is the deciding factor. No score is too high for an admission- you can read more here

Hi ShabariSS,

Your post does not provide us enough details on your role, career progress, achievements, and post-MBA goals. Nonetheless, with the information that we do have, we would recommend that you aim for a score upwards of 720! :) The higher, the better.

All the best!

Hi ,
Please evaluate my below profile:

10th: 92.8%
12th: 84.16%
B.E (Information Science): 9.51/ 10 GPA (2nd Rank holder for the Class)
Work Experience: 4 years as Software QA Engineer
Gave GRE 2 years back and got : 300 ( Q: 158 V: 142)
Have participated in many NGO activities from corporate Citizenship

I know my GRE marks is way low. I’m confused should I retake GRE itself or prepare for GMAT and give a try for GMAT.

Can you please suggest me on what should I choose among GRE or gmat and how much I need in those exams for high admission chances.

Hi BhargavaB,

Thanks for your query.

Both tests are equally accepted by ISB but we would imagine that considering you have already prepared for GRE and are more conversant with the structure of the test, the GRE would work better for you :-) Nonetheless, you could always take a GMAT Mock to gauge your comfort level :-)

Needless to say, whichever test you do decide to take, you will need to spare time to put forth a stellar set of essays as well, as ISB evaluates applications in a holistic manner.

Hope this helped!

All the best!

Hi BhargavaB,

Since you come from the IT background, please keep in mind that the competition is higher and you would want to pull out all the stops in your candidature to make a great impression.

Average GMAT scores are around 710 and GRE scores are around 324. A score of 300 is definitely on the lower side. Whether you take the GMAT or GRE, it is purely your choice. Since it has been 2 years since you have taken the GRE, you can try giving a mock test for GRE and GMAT each and then decide which one suits you more.

Remember to aim for at least class average, and the higher the better.

Feel free to reach out for personalized guidance and a detailed profile evaluation.

My friend too little information to advice a score.
ISB is not a school that will look at a laundry list of your stats (Grades, Years of Work Ex, GMAT) and grant you an admission.
A profile is much more than these bullet points (you begin your research here)
What is your nature of work, career progression, achievements and business impact?
What are your diversity factors?
What sort of extracurricular activities have you been involved in?
What are your career goals?
Answers to these make up your profile.
Depending on the strength of your profile, a minimum GMAT may be recommended.
With the current info I would suggest a 730+, but one would need to know more.

Do well.

Best
