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.

Dear kalstheiceberg,

Thanks for sharing your profile.

Given the IT pool that you belong to, 690 in GMAT is close to but less than the average score . However, this gets offset by the quantum and quality of experience that you bring to the class and you stand a good chance to make it to ISB.

International work experience is definitely a plus. Your previous acads are decent. What we most like about your profile here is the clarity in your thought process . Further, your post mba goals and expectations are pretty clear and genuine given your work experience and the fact that ISB has regular recruiters from Life Sciences industry such as Johnson & Johnson and other consulting firms etc. ISB also has affinity towards organising various industry level events in life sciences.

Your extra curricular and professional certifications perfectly complement your profile and strengthens your application.

Experience and Expertise in Data Analytics is a hot skill set in job market and you will get ample opportunities during placement process.

We suggest you to focus on getting the flow of your story on the spot and bring out all the quality factors in your essays. With your experience,, ISB is one of the b-schools that can do justice to your profile and appreciate your experience.

The key now lies with getting your essays and interview prep right. As mentioned earlier, you stand a good chance to make it to the class.

Please feel free to reach out for any additional queries.

All the Best !

Hi,

I wanted to get my profile evaluated for ISB.
It would very helpful if you can give some insights on my profile.

Degree: B.Tech (SRM University)
Company: KPMG India

10th :71
12th:72.8
CGPA:8.9
GRE:313(Q160,V153)

My work ex would be exactly 4 years by the time I will apply to ISB.
I started working as a database developer in wipro and worked there for 2.5 year and currently I am working with KPMG for last 1 year as Associate Consultant.
In KPMG I am working as a Qlikview developer and manage all the activities of KPMG with the client.
I am the front face of KPMG at the client location having delivered more than 3 projects successfully in the span of 1 year.I have lead the team of 3 people for one of my projects in developing the dashboard for financial data control team of the client.

I have won two awards one in wipro for the automation work I did to streamline the process and one in KPMG.

I was a part of two r&d projects in my college and also organised many events in the college.

Completed one course from Coursera for Strategic Management from IIM B and also planning to complete the Operations Management course from IIMB.

What I learned from Wipro?
I learned the technical bend needed to cater to a business problem.

What I am learning from KPMG?
Apart from the technical knowledge I am also developing an understanding of the business of my client which is needed for providing them the accurate technical guidance.

I want to get into consulting again after my MBA thus I am planning to hone my business skill to cater to the clients need in a much better way.

I like Photography, travelling and taking solo trips.

Hello shriyek

The quantitative aspect of your profile seems decent.
However, it will help further if you also focus on qualitative aspects of your profile. (grades, GMAT, years, industry- things that are easily measurable)
These are career progress (not evident), achievements at work (missing), career goals (what is that you want to do in the short and long term and where does an MBA fit in these plans), extracurricular activities (enhances your diversity, missing again). These things are not easily measurable. Your essays/LOR are the marketing tool that helps you put these aspects forward.
Based on inputs above, we may even find that some of the schools on your list are not feasible for your goals (too high, too low or simply not fit for you).
You may want to read here to know all the factors critical for your application and here on career goals.

Hi Rahul,

Your profile is decent but it does fall under the most crowded pool of applicants - Indian/IT Engineer/ Male. While you do have a few differentiating points it will depend on how to present your application. Also, your GRE score converts to a 600 on GMAT scale. This is way too low for ISB. While you can't do anything about your work ex and education background you can definitely work hard and improve your GRE/GMAT score. I know this may not be what you wanted to hear. Let me know if you want to discuss it over a call.

Best,

Hi Shriyek,

Things look decent at your end. While your statistics fit the bill for all these b-schools, the devil lies in the details. What is your work experience like? what have you learned/ achieved/ what impact have you created? With several applicants applying from an operation background, the quality of your work experience will help to set you apart. Extracurricular activities can also help you demonstrate your uniqueness.

Your goals, of course, need refinement as well as alignment with your current work experience. Just to emphasize upon an often made point- every business school asks for career goals- if not in the essays then during the interview. Make sure yours are well researched and planned. Non-clarity of career goals can lead to rejection. You will need to be specific about what role in operations, what kind of companies and how this role is a significant jump over what you have been doing until now. Same goes for consulting. FYI, the post MBA work profile of consultant is associate, but you can just write consultant in your applications.

Hi Nikki,

A low GPA and a low GMAT will cost you heavily, despite the IIT pedigree and presumably strong work experience. Please retake and then apply.

Hi Shriyek,

Your acads 10,12,UG are decent enough.

Work profile being Non IT and from a core industry stands a good chance based on the differentiating factor and diversity that you bring to the class.
Good GMAT Score. You stand a very good chance at ISB and IIM A, NUS looks for lots of intangible and un-quantifiable resume points..since you have not mentioned any extra curricular activities or co-curricular activities. It’s a bit difficult to comment regarding NUS and other b schools such as HEC, ESMT etc.

Do have a look at the firms that come during placement season at ISB and IIM A, will give you a clear picture.

Focus on building your essays now and bring out the strong points in your resume and work ex. and understand as to how your prior work ex ties in with your future goals and your target companies. CLARITY is paramount here and will be there once you work on you essays.

Please feel free to reach out for any additional queries.

All the Best :)

Hi shriyek, Pantnagar is a decent brand in terms of college, and you have good academics, relevant experience, and decent GMAT.

Operations does seem to be well aligned as a post-MBA goal. Make sure your essays do justice towards articulating this alignment.

Hi kalstheiceberg, even with your current experience, you had offers in US from 2 of the Big4 as a senior consultant in their Strategy and Operations for LSHC domain.

Your post MBA goal is also to make a gradual transition into a Senior Consultant/Strategist role in top 4 consulting firms in their LSHC domain .

Hope you've thought this thru, because the clarity of your thoughts would reflect in the goals essay.

Hi Rajeshpodduturi, with an AIR rank of 7 in GATE, I am sure you can do better in GMAT brother.

It's currently sticking like a sore thumb, in your otherwise very decent profile.

Hello Rajeshpodduturi

While some aspects of your profile look pretty good- good brand on the CV, experience of working on family business, decent past acads, and strong extracurricular activities.
However, with 2.5 years of ex (slightly on the lower end) and that too in IT, a score of 640 can be a hindrance. There is still time for R2, you may want to reattempt and target a higher score if possible.
At the same time, some key quality info is missing in your post such as nature of work, career progression, achievements at work (these things matter more than anything else) and most importantly career goals (these must be specific and realistic). In absence of this information, it is virtually impossible to give a complete feedback.
You may want to read here on the factors that matter in your written application and here on career goals.

Hello guptaayushi

Decent profile on a quantitative scale. The key for you is execution and bringing out the qualitative details as well. Tell your story to showcase business impact of your contributions at work.
Also, I do not see any mention of career goals (why MBA & why ISB) and extracurricular activities (these can help you stand out further). The GMAT is below par for ISB, but may not a be a big issue in your specific case as long as your written application emphasizes all the factors mentioned here and ties these in with clear career goals (mentioned here)

Hi

I would appreciate your evaluation of my profile
Female, 29 ( married)
GMAT - 680,
Indian
I am working as a chartered accountant ( Audit Practice) for over 5.5 years in one of the big 4s.
Completed all qualification exams of Chartered Accountants in first attempt.
Other details:-
12th ICSE 91.0%
10th ICSE 88.5 %
BCOM- 60%

As part of my job , I have extensive Leadership experience as team lead for engagements, more than three years.
I am looking forward to apply in ISB in Round 2 ( December 15).

Please share your inputs.



Hi Ayushi,

Here is my analysis:-

10th and 12th is good, GMAT Score is below the average score as comapred to the average score of previous class of ISB. However, I strongly suggest you to apply in R2 this year.

Your profile adds to the diversity factor of the class of ISB given you are from a non-engineering and non-IT background.

Experience from Big 4’s is a great resume point and given the gist of your work experience that you have shared, it surely adds your profile to the list of candidates to be interviewed in R2.

At this stage, and with ample time in your hands I would suggest to focus on writing your essays and bring out the strong points of your profile. Your extensive leadership experience for 3 years will give you good enough profile pointers and learnings to mention in essays and interview.

Also, have a clear post MBA goals and be realistic about it. This helps while preparing your essays and during preparation for interviews. Connect with graduates of ISB with a similar background as yours and understand from them the opportunities that ISB will offer post MBA. Clarity on Short term and Long term career goals is something that ISB expects.

Mention few extra-curricular and co-curricular activities that you might have done. Sometimes these experiences bring out a total different and interesting points of discussion.

Please feel free to reach out for any additional queries.

All the Best !
