Hi raghavrf

Although this is a short description of your profile, I have some insights for you:

1. I personally am connected to a person who had a very similar profile as yours. He came from Tata Motors and with a similar years of experience as yours. Plus, at ISB, he has been part of the application review committee. Post ISB he is in a major operations role. This is just to show you that you can definitely crack ISB with this profile.
2. Although you mentioned no leadership experience in the industry, there can still be quite a few details that can be leveraged for showing leadership experience. For example, most IT applicants with around 2 years of work experience in the industry never have any leadership roles. Yet, they are able to leverage the initiatives and work achievements for the leadership aspects. If we connect, I'm sure we can work on finding these aspects for your profile.
3. Try to aim for a GMAT above 730 and this will significantly increase your chances of getting an admission. But you can still submit an application at a GMAT of 690 and even worst case 670 provided you are able to write killer essays.

Let me know if I can help you with your essays by connecting you with the right mentors who can help you in writing compelling stories in your essays.

Hope this helps.

Btech, Chemical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology (2013-2017) CGPA of 7.6/10

Age 24, Male

Working exp:

2. 1.1 year work experience at EXL Analytics as an analytics consultant in BFSI sector (Client facing role, 1 promotion after year 1)

Targeting: ISB

Career Goal: Product Manager at a tech company

Hi sigma121 ,

Here are some insights for you for ISB admissions based on your profile:
1. Strong areas - 4 years of work experience is an ideally sweet spot for applying to ISB PGP. Try your best to get in within this year itself. You international exposure will be a big factor for creating a compelling case as ISB is known to prefer it. You can leverage it to show your diversity aspect, or to show how you are 'adaptable to change'. While you've mentioned Product Management as your primary goal, your profile also looks fit for the role of a Consultant. You can add that as an alternate career goal.
2. Weak areas - First, it would be better to quote leadership examples that are more recent as compared to the ones that were 4 years back in college. Next, your profile description focuses a lot on the technical side of your role and it is better to also elaborate a bit on the managerial side. Being in tech also puts you in the IT applicants pool which means that you should try for a GMAT score of 730 as a good score. Above 750 would be great but anything below 700 will be highly risky.

We have some mentors in our network who had a pre - ISB story same as yours. One of our mentors worked for EXL Analytics before ISB and the other worked as a Data Science Consultant pre - ISB.

Please let me know if you need help in writing your essays and I can arrange communication with these mentors.

Best of luck!

Hi utsav Mukherjee

Thanks for your detailed post.

Considering your managerial and teamwork skills, client-handling abilities, the experience of working in remote areas, and decent extra-curricular activities, your profile has a number of takeaway points. Of course, how you present the same through your essays will be very crucial. Considering you have plenty of time at hand before the R1 applications for the next season, we suggest that you spend a good amount of time deliberating upon the same. Very importantly, the career goals should be tied up in a way that they appear to be a logical extension of your current professional experience. Needeless to say, the short-term and long-term goals should seamlessly fit in with each other.

Further to the above, a very important element in the applications process is your GMAT Score. Unfortunately, we do not have clarity with regard to the same. However, if you are in the process of preparing for the same, we strongly recommend that you aim for a score upwards of 720.

While questions may change in the coming year, the following video will give you a perspective on how you could approach the ISB essays:



All the best!

Hello Lamda,

Thanks for writing in.

You have a decent overall profile; however, much will depend on your GMAT score, as well as the quality of your essays. Do look for a score up and above 720 on the GMAT; the higher the better. At the same time, do put in a good amount of thought into how you wish to portray your achievements through your essays.

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

All the best!

Hello, and thanks for the swift response!

720+ would be ideal, yes. In your experience though, keeping aside my GMAT score, do you reckon my profile ranks below or above the average YLP student's?

Hello tejyr,

No GRE score will ever guarantee you admission as the school will evaluate your profile in a holistic manner. That said, the GRE score is an important component and considering your current score was fairly below the average, you must re-take and apply again.

Comparing your profile with that of others is not the correct approach. Besides the GRE score, the quality of your essays, particularly how clearly they portray your career goals and achievements is equally important. Hence, any speculation in this regard is not recommended.

Your current post does not share any major details about your career progression, achievements, extra-curricular activities and for a detailed profile evaluation, we will require the same.
In the interim period, however, we suggest that you go through the following video as the same will help you gain a perspective on how you must approach your essays and what really makes an impact:



All the best!

International Trade Finance Banker:

I have completed my Std X and XII with decent scores. Went for Power Engineering afterwards, lost a year to illness.

Job details : Due to the lost year, employment in engineering was an impossible task, so I joined ICICI Bank in the International trade division, moved to Deutsche Bank in a similar business vertical. I also have the professional certification of CDCS. This is my fifth year of employment combined.

Post my MBA, I plan to stay in the Trade Finance field and eventually move into a regulatory role at an agency like SWIFT, WEF or the ICC.

Hello saikumar_kale,

Thanks for writing in.

Your international experience, as well as the awards, will definitely add value to your overall case. However, with no real information on your career progression, goals, and extra-curricular activities, it is difficult to provide you a detailed evaluation.

While no score guarantees an admit, you should definitely aim for a score upwards of 710; the higher you score, the better is going to be. Besides, the GMAT score, your essays will also have a very crucial role to play in determining your chances.

Further to the above, the following video will also help you approach the ISB essays (provided the questions remain the same as this year):



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

All the best!

Hi Friends,

Pls evaluate my profile.

WORK PROFILE:
Currently i'm working as a customs officer (Group-B service) in Govt of India - 3+ years experience.
previously worked as an Assistant manager in a private bank(Core Banking Services) for 1 year.

EDUCATION:
10Th - 78.5%
Intermediate -80%
B-Tech, Biotechnology - 73%
I went to US for my M.S in Biotechnology(with full scholarship), figured out that i've taken a wrong step and that my path didn't align with my long term goals. After talking to my parents and seniors i figured out that i need to do an MBA and also that i need to have a proper work experience before entering into MBA. I moved back to India (dropped out of university) and then my work profile explains what i did.

Hobbies:
Playing Table tennis, watching movies and doing meditation.

Planning to pursue my PGP from ISB and about to start my preparation of GMAT.

Friends, when i self-evaluate my profile, i can't make out where i stand. Throughout my education I've been an above average student. I didn't want to continue in Biotechnology, so i have searched for a career in fields like banking and government and i got into government service where i have a great work experience. But i couldn't find anyone with a similar profile, who has got into ISB. Therefore, i'm very confused. Please evaluate my profile and feel free to tell me if there is any chance for me to get into premier institutes like ISB. Also tell me how much GMAT score would increase my chance of getting into ISB, If any.

There is no bare minimum GMAT score required ( in official language). However, it pays to have a score over 700.
Its difficult to make out your unique factors/ spikes in your profile from the info you have provided above. Do get back with your achievements, both personal and professional

I have only been working for 10 months, hence I do not have many proffessional achievements. I have a couple Employee of the month awards. Thats it.
On a personal front, I have won a couple of inter college and inter school tournaments with my football and cricket teams. This is all there is.
Should I realistically aim for ISB EEO? If yes, then what should I do now to improve my chances.
TIA :)

Hi Friends,

Pls evaluate my profile.

WORK PROFILE:
Currently i'm working as a customs officer (Group-B service) in Govt of India - 3+ years experience.
previously worked as an Assistant manager in a private bank(Core Banking Services) for 1 year.

EDUCATION:
10Th - 78.5%
Intermediate -80%
B-Tech, Biotechnology - 73%
I went to US for my M.S in Biotechnology(with full scholarship), figured out that i've taken a wrong step and that my path didn't align with my long term goals. After talking to my parents and seniors i figured out that i need to do an MBA and also that i need to have a proper work experience before entering into MBA. I moved back to India (dropped out of university) and then my work profile explains what i did.

Hobbies:
Playing Table tennis, watching movies and doing meditation.

Planning to pursue my PGP from ISB and about to start my preparation of GMAT.

Friends, when i self-evaluate my profile, i can't make out where i stand. Throughout my education I've been an above average student. I didn't want to continue in Biotechnology, so i have searched for a career in fields like banking and government and i got into government service where i have a great work experience. But i couldn't find anyone with a similar profile, who has got into ISB. Therefore, i'm very confused. Please evaluate my profile and feel free to tell me if there is any chance for me to get into premier institutes like ISB. Also tell me how much GMAT score would increase my chance of getting into ISB, If any.


Whenever you apply, your application will stand on its own merit. so highlight the areas where you are excellent. Also highlight the impact you have created, and leave the past behind :)
Essentially the need for an MBA has to connect with a future purpose in life, also known as career goals. What is it that you wish to do going forward, 3 years from now, 5 years from now, 10 years from now? An MBA is a medium to help you prepare for that role (and this should be aspirational, something you can not achieve without the MBA).
Once you get these stories right, your chances for admission will be as good as anyone else's (and yeah, the 700+ GMAT still counts).
