You've not stated your post-MBA goals. A well thought-out SoP, and you should be in there.

Hi Sraghav786, academically and professionally, there are a lot of positives in your profile, though GMAT score is obviously a big unknown.

Also, we don't get a sense of your post-MBA goals. A well-articulated story is of course a pre-requisite.

Hi tito411990, consulting is a broad field; are you referring to Technology Consulting? Mentioning merely Consulting might be construed as too generic and over-the-top.

With a great GMAT score, put your best foot forward in application, with well thought-thru SoP.

Hi rashmirani,

While you have a strong pedigree and decent work experience, we strongly recommend a GMAT re-take. This will also help compensate for your low GPA.

Should you have any queries, feel free to reach out.

Thank you!

Hey I'm no expert but if I were you I'd retake the GMAT. You are an IITian so quant is not hard to score high. Looking at your verbal score you can definitely improve there. Please look at your ESR and improve in verbal. Being a female you are already diverse so you would stand out with the IIT tag as well.

680+ would be great :)

Look at this post https://gmatclub.com/forum/how-to-impro ... l#p2021378

Dear sid121,

You have a diverse profile when it comes to the pool of applicant you belong to. 10th, 12th and Undergraduate is really good. Considering ISB also focuses on overall acads, this will definitely turn in your favour.

GMAT Score is at an average band. However, it can be offset by the wonderful entrepreneurial experience and the number of extra curricular activities you have.

In case you don't plan to re-take GMAT in order to improve your score, we suggest you to focus entirely on the application front in building your story perfectly through your essays and by taking relevant recommendations. All the achievements that you have mentioned stands apart especially clearing NTSE and SSTSE. ISB has an unsaid preference for candidates who have attained landmarks in their acads and NTSE and SSTSE adds lot of value. A bit of brainstoriming is needed to etch your essays perfectly with a flow and bring out the unique factor that you possess.

The story of your venture should be captured effectively and it's suggested to mention few of the achievements of your entrepreneurial journey (and the venture). Take enough mock interview sessions to bring a clarity to your thoughts and to present it very well. At this stage, we would say that you stand a very good chance to make it to the Class of ISB.

Focus and Prepare well.

All the Best !

Give a strong and compelling reason for why you want an MBA and why at this stage when you are already a successful entrepreneur. I think that's the most challenging part of your application.

Dear honneeey,

Decent acads, GMAT is on a average band. However, one of our students we worked with received an interview call with the same score. Your extra curricular and co-curricular activities are above average with credentials such as "Young Achiever Award".

To answer your question of "What all can i do to crack ISB this year?"...we strongly suggest to start focusing on your essays and getting good recos. Your essays are a key factor here given that you can never be sure as to how the next attempt will be for you. Start preparing and your essaya with a clarity and focus on the differentiating factor that you are goin to bring it to the class. It is very important for you to have that clarity and build up the story in the essay and communicate it appropriately.

Essays + Reco is a make for you with a score of 660. With an improved score, you have multiple possibilities.

Please do reach out in case of any additional queries/doubts.

All the Best,
Shweta Tandon

Hello honneeey,

First things first..you have a very strong overall profile and if you are able to take your GMAT up to the 700 mark, you have a very strong chance of getting an interview invite.

While you are already focusing on your GMAT, please also focus on putting together a set of essays that represent your strengths, the diversity in your profile, and a logical set of career goals. The following video will help you in this regard.



Should you have any follow-up questions, feel free to write back.

Thanks.

All the best!

Hi,

Appreciate your response!

Is 700 a good enough score for my profile or do I need to target higher?

Does it mean i should put my GMAT in the driving seat now, giving secondary place to apps and LORs?

Yes...700+; higher the better.

If you have currently put apps and LOR in your driving seat and given secondary place to GMAT, you have your priorities wrong brother.
