Hello Anugya1990

Based on the info give, I'd recommend a GMAT retake and push it to 700+.
The fact that you are not currently working might hurt your chances if the break is too long and not used productively towards your career growth.
The nature of your work experience, career progress, achievements is not evident in the information given. So virtually impossible to comment on that.
Past academic scores and Extracurricular look decent, but you will need to build a strong narrative involving Work Ex, Diversity, Academics and Career goals after ISB. You can read here on what will make a strong application.
Also, not sure what your career goals are- your chances are dependent on the fit of your goals with your past skills and ISB. Get started on your research on career goals here.
Some other schools that offer a similar program are IIMA (PGPX), IIMB (EPGP), IIMC (PGPeX) etc. But the above feedback will stand for all of these schools.

I also have international exposure of 6 months in Frankfurt, Germany and site experience of commissioning a Fatty Alcohol Godrej Plant in Gujarat.

Currently I am not working due to personal reasons but plan on doing some course on data science, if it will help build my application.

Extra curricular activities:

1. Member of IICHE (Indian Institute of Chemical Engineers)
2. Affiliate at society of Women Engineers (SWE)
3. Actively participated in social programmes in the company and well appreciated for the same.
4. Actively participated in many competitions in the company and awarded for the same.
4. Hobbies are painting, travelling and doing Yoga.

Please evaluate my profile and let me know whether it is good enough to apply in Round 1 of this year or should I re-take the exam and apply in Round 2.

Please also let me know if I can apply to other good colleges in India with this score.

Hi,

I am working in GroupM, it is the largest media firm in the world. My work profile is Consumer Insights and content. Have been working here for the past 2.5 years. Have done post graduate course in communication management from Symbiosis, Pune. I am also a Mechanical engineer from Manipal Institute of Technology, Karnataka. Worked for year after that with Hero Motocorp. In total I have 3.5 years of work ex. Have won a lot of business school case study competitions. Have been the placement cell head as well at Symbiosis. My GMAT score is 620. Should I apply to ISB with this? considering my profile is not of a regular IT guy but from a media background.

Thanks,

I would also like to inform you that I had got a call from ISB last year with the same score, but could not make it in the interview. Also I was working then, so you are right in saying that I need to re-take the exam to increase my chances this time. Thanks again!

hello suheilmohan

I'd recommend a retake and target a 680+ to have a decent shot at ISB.
Your background is certainly different, but don't rest on this laurel alone.
A profile is made up of Acads+WorkEx+Extracurricular+Career Goals. Read here what makes a strong profile.
Not sure about your career goals and extracurricular here. (college level ECA do not carry much weight unless something stellar).
Also, work related info is very transactional and role based. Nothing on achievements or career progression, which may show some strengths in your profile.
The only thing that can compensate for a low GMAT is 'quality' in your profile, whihc you haven't mentioned much around. So in that case retake the GMAT and push the score up to 680 at least.

Hi Suheil! You certainly have an interesting profile and with over 3 years of experience, there is no reason to wait for another year. 620 isn't going to help, but anything around 700 will give you a decent shot at ISB.

All the Best!

I have handled Social Media Marketing of the events also.

For hobbies, I do standup-comedy (part of a comedy collective) and also involved in an YouTube channel (co-founder , script writing and acting).

My post MBA Goals are to get into Product Management by leveraging my experience as a Full Stack Developer.

Please give feedback. Thanks in advance.


Hi abhijitmohanty,

You have a fine overall profile and with the kind of time you have before you apply, we are confident you will be able to build this up. We would strongly recommend that you keep performing in your existing role to have as many achievements as possible as they will serve as good talking points in your essays.

Having said the above, the GMAT will be crucial and we suggest that you prepare for it and get it out of the way :-) Aim upwards of a 730 as GMAT expectations will anyway be higher from you (as an Indian IT Male :-)). A high GMAT score, together with a set fo well-drafted essays (in which, the career goals move in sync) will give you a very strong chance at making it to ISB! :-)

All the best!

Hello holyghost91

Overall a strong profile wit decent acads, work ex and extracurricular activities. You can read here on what factors to highlight in your essays.
The 2 year gap can be compensated if you can show what you were doing in those 2 years.
Since you are planning to apply next year you will have more than enough time to work on your application. I recommend spend the next one year working on and building all parts of your profile including work ex and extracurricular activities to increase your chances of admission. Do not wait till Jan but start early, it will help you immensely.
Target a 700+ in GMAT and you should have a decent shot at ISB.

Hello Daaku05

The 'stats' of your profile are pretty strong. Will help further if you can mention some qualitative details as well such as career progress and achievements at work and extracurricular activities. Read here to know what makes a complete profile.
Also missing are your career goals and why you need an MBA from ISB. This narrative will be critical to predicting your chances. You can read here on career goals after ISB.
Target a 700+ and present realistic career goals and you have a fighting chance at ISB.
Should you have further questions, let me know.

Hi. Please review my profile.

Name: Hardik Gandhi

Class 10th: 91.50%
Class 12th: 90.25%
Engineering: 8.75 CGPA ( MS Ramaiah Institute of Technology)

Worked as a Business Analyst in Accenture for 1.5 years. I quit my job after that to start my journey as an entrepreneur or rather an edupreneur. I started a Coaching Institute in Bangalore to teach students for various entrance exams like CET, JEE Mains, SAT and other competitive exams.Some of my students are studying in top colleges in India and Abroad. I am basically a Math teacher who has tried to add use of technology to Education. After running my institute successfully for a few years i entered into the online education segment with another startup and launched an android app for the same. Tried a lot to get funding for the same but didn't succeed yet. There is traction on the app but i am not able to scale it due to lack of funds. So currently i am running both, classroom teaching as well as the online segment. I also teach underprivileged children because that is something which makes me happy. I have roughly 6.5 years of work ex of which 1.5 yrs was professional and rest as an entrepreneur.

I will be taking GMAT in OCT . Target Score : 720-750

Please evaluate my profile for ISB and IIM's.

Thanks.

Merged - please continue the discussion here for profile evals.
P.S. For your target schools that will automatically disqualify you; they are unlikely to even review your application since the average is around 700. No dice. You can wait until you can possibly do an EMBA (possibly without GMAT).

Good Luck!

Please let me know whether the above is good enough for ISB. Also, if I get a better GMAT Score before interviews would they consider that?

Hi Suheil,

Hope you are doing well.

I am an ISB alum, CO14, and would be happy to evaluate your candidature.

While I definitely see you bringing diversity to the ISB classroom, but since the competition is quite high over the recent, I will recommend you to retake the GMAT and aim for a score in excess of 670 to get a realistic shot of being considered. This is under the assumption that, you will. back your score with a high quality application articulating your experiences, goals, and value add to the ISB cohort - as a student and as a an alumni.

In case you have further questions and want a detailed discussion. Please feel free to reach out to me at arijit.biswas@crackadmission.com and/or M :+91-9701215544

Cheers
Arijit

Hello piyushsrivastava7

First things first- I would highly recommend a retake and target a score of at least 640+ if nothing else. With a 550-ish score the chances are very low even if your profile is strong in other areas.
It is good to hear that you are confident of your essays, but at times applicants do not completely know who they are competing with. Several people with such profiles apply and at times things need to be put into perspective.
To get a successful admission you will need to have a spike on at least 3 admission factors mentioned here.
Plus the details given by you are highly qualitative in nature and these 'stats' conceal more than they reveal about you. It would obviously help further to understand the actual nature of your work, career progress, achievements, past academic scores, extracurricular activities, career goals. Unfortunately all of this qualitative info is missing to give a detailed feedback. In absence of this, I will suggest to target at least a 650.
Should you have further questions, let me know.

Hello hardikgandhi

You have a lot going for you. Good past acads, decent target GMAT and potentially a good work ex background.
You'll need to showcase a spike in the admission factors mentioned here.
That said, you will more importantly need to tie in all of the above with your career goals and showcase a need for an MBA at ISB. One does not necessarily needed an MBA to succeed at entrepreneurship. You can read more on career goals here to help in your research.
Should you have further questions, feel free to reach out.

Hi. Please review my profile.

Name: Hardik Gandhi

Class 10th: 91.50%
Class 12th: 90.25%
Engineering: 8.75 CGPA ( MS Ramaiah Institute of Technology)

Worked as a Business Analyst in Accenture for 1.5 years. I quit my job after that to start my journey as an entrepreneur or rather an edupreneur. I started a Coaching Institute in Bangalore to teach students for various entrance exams like CET, JEE Mains, SAT and other competitive exams.Some of my students are studying in top colleges in India and Abroad. I am basically a Math teacher who has tried to add use of technology to Education. After running my institute successfully for a few years i entered into the online education segment with another startup and launched an android app for the same. Tried a lot to get funding for the same but didn't succeed yet. There is traction on the app but i am not able to scale it due to lack of funds. So currently i am running both, classroom teaching as well as the online segment. I also teach underprivileged children because that is something which makes me happy. I have roughly 6.5 years of work ex of which 1.5 yrs was professional and rest as an entrepreneur.

I will be taking GMAT in OCT . Target Score : 720-750

Please evaluate my profile for ISB and IIM's.

Thanks.
