Hi sahilsh,

Apologies for the slight delay in responding to you. However, we hope this finds you in time still.

A number of things will truly work well for you - the start-up experience, professional accolades, work with underprivileged communities, as well as the fact that you are targetting a 720+ (provided you are able to represent all of this well in your essays:)).

Having said the above, two things become truly crucial for you:
- Explanation of a need for a second MBA
- Your career goals and how ISB fits into the general scheme. Remember, your career goals should be in logical sync with your existing career and competencies

Please ensure that the above is taken care of in your essays.

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

All the best!

Hi enviousfox,

Apologies for the delay in responding to you.

The CFA will definitely work to your advantage, though, the GMAT score is definitely a bit of a concern area. A 640 on GMAT is much below the ISB average and we strongly recommend a retake. Try and aim for something upwards of a 720 :-)

Further, considering you have no work experience, you will need to assess your eligibility and possibly look at YLP or EEO.

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

Thanks.

All the best!

Hi dtox194

You can definitely apply with a GRE Score for R1 in ISB, as the application deadline is 15th September. The ISB GRE average is usually around 324, therefore 327 is also a decent score. The work-experience and masters obtained abroad both add value to your profile as well as a nice international flavor. Extracurruiculars are decent. Technical profiles can also be sprinkled with leadership experiences that highlight your strengths and qualities, making you a good MBA candidate.

We recommend that you should focus on putting together a well-written application for R1 asap. Concise essays that highlight your differentiators and clearly talk about why you want to return to India should help you reach the finish line.

Do reach out for a detailed discussion.

Hi abhijitmohanty

Did you mean that you wish to apply for ISB in R1 next year or this year? If next year, then there are a lot of ways you can build your profile. However, if this year then you would need to get GMAT of the way ASAP. Please clarify so that we can advise accordingly.

Hello dtox194

Yours is a decent profile and have a lot going for you- past acads, international exposure etc.
I wouldn't fret about the profile being too technical, but would be more concerned on what are your career goals. Why do you need an MBA and how will you tie your past technical experience with your future goals. You can read here more on career goals.
That said, your international work ex will definitely work in your favor and the GRE of 327 is good enough for your specific profile to go ahead and apply in R1.
You rather spend the next one month on writing a strong application and highlighting your work ex, extracurricular and need for an MBA. (Read more on the components of a profile here)
If you are able to tie these well in your application, you have a fighting chance at ISB.
Should you have further questions, let me know.

Hello abhijitmohanty

Interesting profile. Your extracurricular, past scores and broader set of experiences at work will help you stand out from the otherwise large and competitive IT pool.
Goals are pretty realistic and organic too.
As long as you are able to tie in the admission factors mentioned here well in your written application, you will have a decent shot at ISB.
That said, not sure what GMAT score your are expecting, but a 720+ will make your profile quite strong.
You have enough time, assuming you will be applying next year, so spend time after the GMAT on preparing a strong application strategy and shortlisting other B schools as well apart from ISB.
Should you have further questions, feel free to reach out.

Hi,

You have very strong academic credentials and a fairly competitive GMAT score. Your background in Civil Engineering and your work profile at CBRE is quite different from the regular applicant pool and will be an added advantage for you.

On your application essays, you need to highlight the learning from your past experience and how they tie up with your future goals (Analyst). Your profile seems to have a lot of elements that will resonate well with the adcoms.

For further application assistance, you may reach out to us at beyondthegmat@gmail.com or call us on +91-7022839859.

Hi,
You have an interesting profile which will definitely resonate with the ISB Adcom who place emphasis on diversity. Your GRE score is also decent for ISB. What you need to work on is bringing out your leadership skill in your application and to tell your own unique story. Your essays should focus on the values and learning that you will bring into the class.
You can definitely apply for round 1 of ISB. We would advice you to start working on your application as early as possible. You can also sent us a email at beyondthegmat@gmail.com for a detailed profile evaluation and to get insights into other potential B-schools for your profile.

Best of luck!

Hi,

It would be great if someone can help in evaluating my profile and suggest if I need to retake the GMAT to improve my score

Have written the GMAT once.
My GMAT score:660 (Q-48 V-33 IR-4 AWA-5)

Nationality : Indian
Gender- Male
Age - 25
Xth- 94%
XIIth - 91%
Undergrad- B.Tech. in Computer Science Engineering from Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University
CGPA- 8.7/10

Work Exp :
1. Working in Cvent India Pvt. Ltd for past 3 years as a part of Quality Assurance team.
- Responsible for Designing and coding automated scripts, database verification, and behavior/data-driven tests for web apps and Android/iOS mobile apps
- Handled several modules for US based client project, completed tasks as a sole person within tight deadlines and trained and mentored many new comers.


Volunteer Experience :
Worked for Teach for India for 2 months

Extra Curricular:
1. Headed the organising team for Annual College Fest
2. Won student of the year award
3. Awarded the best speaker for 3 years in a row


What are the chances of getting through ISB for Round 1 this year? or should I retake and improve my score and apply for Round 2?
Please advise.


Hi Pranav,
I am going to suggest retaking the GMAT score, even if that requires pushing your application to Round 2.Just FYI, ISB receives more applications in R2, and alots seats for R2 applications accordingly, so if there is any myth about it being tougher to get admission after R2, then, that's not correct.
Your application should be the best whichever round you submit it in.

You have not given many details about your work profile so its a little difficult to assess that. I am particularly interested in knowing more about this: "Handled several modules for US based client project, completed tasks as a sole person within tight deadlines and trained and mentored many new comers".

This could be where your leadership skills and ability to make impact lie. For the MBA applications, it will be important to elaborate on this part.

Hi dtox,
If I were you, I wouldn't be concerned at all about the GRE score or the technical profile.
Your GRE converts to a cool 720 on the GMAT scale. Now my concern would be to apply within the GRE expiration deadline.

Regarding your technical profile- that's ok, everyone has a technical profile- some in manufacturing, some in IT and some in finance. Adcoms like to see that you are business minded- you take initiatives to improve the business bottomline/topline. And, you are not myopic about the work you do i.e. just handling your immediate responsibilities without taking initiatives for business betterment. You will need to package this well into a compelling application.

That essentially means demonstrating a number of things in the application:
1. leadership skills
2. ability to take initiatives and create impact
3. have a career plan in place. Know what your short term and long term goals are and WHY they require an MBA.
4. Why should ISB take you and
5. Why do you want to join ISB? (in other words, why do your career goals require an MBA education from ISB).

I would suggest you start working upon the application and work towards creating a winning one. Each of these pointers listed above requires introspection for leveraging in the MBA applications.

Hope that helps,

Hi,

Your acads are great as is the GMAT. You have not explained about your work experience and why you wish to do an MBA - do elaborate on that.
REgarding your certification, is that related in some way to your job profile or is it something unrelated (in which case it will not add any value)

Hello RudraAryan

You have a lot going for you- great GMAT, good past acads, strong brand on the CV, diverse work background (the patent story adds to it) and interesting extracurricular activities.
This takes care of the 'quantitative' part of your profile.
ISB is equally interested in the 'qualitative' side as well. Which is career progress, achievements at work, impact in extracurricular and most importantly career goals.
You can read more on these factors here and on career goals here.
If you can portray quality in your work ex as well as extracurricular and tie these with well researched and realistic career goals in your essays, you have a strong chance at ISB.
Should you have further questions, let me know.

Though MBBS scores are low, your past acads and GMAT should be good enough for ISB

Work experience -
1) Position- resident medical officer in gastroenterology
Sir Gangaram Kolmet hospital
17 months


2)resident medical officer
Medanta the medicity
15 months
While your work ex does not directly tie up with a business education, mention more around what achievements and impact your have had in your career. Just a bullet list of role and responsibilities is not going to cut it.

Extracurricular activities-
Co-ordinator of fashion show in college
Organiser of various medical conference at sir Gangaram Kolmet hospital
Volunteer work in medanta the medicity- give health education in school
Community health work for dengue
A couple of activities show potential, not all. College activities do not carry a lot of weight, unless you have done something spectacular. As with work ex, the stories behind these activities will matter more than a laundry list. You can read here on what makes a strong profile.

Post MBA goal- startup to provide affordable and accessible health services
This must be your long term goal. But where does an MBA fit it. Why can't you do this without an MBA. Also, what is your short term goal immediately after ISB, that will act as a stepping stone to reach your long term goal? You should show a journey and build a stronger narrative. Read more here on career goals.
To conclude you will need to tie in your work ex and career goals into a seamless story. If you can do that, you have a decent shot at ISB.

Hi Reena,
Your profile definitely looks interesting and your education and work experience as a medical professional would appeal to the ISB Adcom who look for diversity in class. What you need to establish in your application is why MBA is the next logical step for your career and how you want to utilize your learning post MBA.

Your post MBA goal of a startup is interesting but you need to substantiate why MBA would be necessary to pursue the idea. Your GMAT score and academics are decent and you need to write your unique story highlighting your leadership skills and achievements.

We would advice you to get started on your essays as quickly as possible for ISB round 1.

You can connect with us at beyondtheGMAT@gmail.com for a detailed profile evaluation and to get insights into other potential B-Schools for your profile.

Best of luck!
