What are the chances of getting through ISB for Round 1 this year (2020 Intake)?


Thank you for replying. Answers are inline.
Hi himani2093
- While your academics are good, it is not clear why you are pursuing a program in Psychology as it aligns neither with your work nor your backgrounds. Please clarify.

I am pursuing psychology purely for my interest in reading and understanding people. I am specializing in counseling to be better able to understand human psychology and help people around me cope with mental stress and other kind of mental problems.

- Your ECA is quite decent as well. What was the startup around, and what ultimately happened to it?
Startup was a platform for comparing and listing childcare services like schools, hobby classes etc. The startup couldn't be scaled because team ( other major shareholders )fell out. It even was able to raise funding

- Please share some more details on your current work in Healthcare IT - what kind of projects do you work on? Are you also involved in sales/marketing efforts in some way? A move to marketing from your current profile is not linear, but let us have an assessment after more details are received.
Currently, I am in software development. Not involved in sales/marketing in any way. I am working on developing healthcare devices/products.

- Broadly, you should target 700+ (720+ would be even more helpful, given your IT background). Had someone almost exactly like you get through in R1 last year with a 690, though don't take that as the highest benchmark, and try to score higher.



Thanks in advance!


Hi himani2093

Thanks for sharing the details. Our assessment:
- The Psychology education is good, though it need not be part of your overall professional profile. Still, the fact that you did just out of interest is applaudable. This will help add diversity to your personal profile, and diversity is something ISB deeply values.
- The startup seems interesting, and the fact that it got to the funding stage means it was credible. A valuable learning experience, even if it does not work out. Shows your passion and spirit of entrepreneurship. A positive for your application.
- Your core work by itself is quite interesting. That itself may be good enough for them to consider you, as you are not the typical IT applicant. Your healthcare insight will be a plus.
- A shift to marketing, unfortunately, doesn't seem that easy, even with an MBA. Maybe a move to marketing of medical devices (J&J has a role on sales for their medical devices offered out of the ISB campus most years) could be feasible. Consumer marketing will be hard.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.

How big a problem is my academics? Is there a way to mitigate that apart from GMAT? My previous roles (the digital marketing and product management ones) were heavily quant driven.

- You have moved roles and even industries in ~4 years of work experience, and that will need some explaining. The chronology of your work-ex is not clear - did you do the Digital Marketer role first, or the entrepreneurial one? If it is the latter, will need to discuss why an MBA instead of running your startup as well. Simple reasoning such as 'want to expand the startup' may not work and you will need to go deeper.
I've given my roles in chronological order. I do have a good explanation for my role switch, and the domains are because my goal is to build a career in the global grand challenges field, hence I wanted to gain experience in diverse fields (my ECAs support this too). This is something I intend to do post MBA as well.


- Target a 720 and above on the GMAT, and focus on clear and rationalized career goals, as these will be looked at very closely for your profile.
Will do

Hi vineeth28

All looks good here, profile wise. The Master's degree will help (plus, it is from an IIT), you have strong ECA, and acads are good too. In addition, you have some foreign exposure as well. Good chances of getting through the YLP process, assuming a decent GMAT score and good apps.

Hi anon711
- Your academics don't make your candidature an impossibility, but at 63%, you are at the lower end of the spectrum. The way ISB looks at it, it is best for you to try and mitigate through the GMAT. Quant-driven roles will probably be only a small factor in this regard.
- On the goals, you will need to be specific on what you wish to achieve (in one domain), and whether you wish to do that through the entrepreneurial or corporate route. Ultimately, you will need to show consistency in one domain, at least as far as the application is concerned. Ultimately, showing competence along global grand challenges is not just about exposure, but also about impact, and you have got to be able to show that.

Hi Team, could you evaluate my profile as well. Thanks in advance!


Hi jayantk94

Overall, your profile is ok. You have good acads and ECA, and your professional experience is fine as well. There are two things you need to work on:
- Your GMAT score at 690 needs to be higher. Try and raise by 20-30 points. As an SAP professional, your work is good, but you will still be categorized broadly as an IT applicant. While things like early promotions/CMMI work are appreciable, please note that they have little value in the admissions process for ISB. However, you are not on a weak plank. If the GMAT score is fixed, you will be in contention.
- Your goals need a deeper look. Strategy consulting will be hard for you to get into post-MBA (in ISB's eyes), and the long-term goal has very little to do with your current career. You need to think about these deeply. This year, ISB is focusing on the long-term career vision as well, so this part will be extremely critical.
- Also go through this series of articles as they will help you.
- Other than that, you are all good. The defence background is a plus, and will add diversity to your profile. Leadership is clearly seen as well.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.

Hi jayantk94

You need a solid score to back your work experience. Two things will make you standout:

1) A 710+ score on the GMAT
2) Big 4 experience is good but you should be aware there are healthy number of candidates who come from these firms and give their best impact story in essays to standout. In parallel to working on your GMAT score, start work on essays in parallel. Ideally, create a list of stories that have a difficult situation, resolution and results (in your personal capacity) and then choose the story that you think will stand out in front of the admissions team. (this is for the first essay)

all the best!

Planning a retake in Aug.

-Any suggestions on strengthening would be great ! Thank you


Hi mini246
- As a retail banker, you bring in diversity, and ISB values that. That will be a big plus for you, especially if you have worked across divisions at IDBI.
- On ECA, you are in ok in terms of what you did in college. The school part is a bit dated now, and the merit scholarship/Accenture and IDBI performance/mentoring interns/JAIIB and CAIIB are not ECA, but academic/professional achievements.
- Your GMAT score, at 640, is too low. You need to enhance it by at least 40 points. Try and apply in Round 1.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.

Hi pandeyshrish123

Frankly, we would want to learn more about your profile to understand your leadership and team handling qualities. The promotions sounds good but what will matter is how you can translate your experience into essays. Also, you will need a 720+ in order to really have a good chance at interview invite. All the best.

Hi choubeyp

Thanks for posting. Here is our assessment:
- You are at the lower end of the work experience spectrum, so it is critical for you to be able to show the need for an MBA at this stage. Digital marketing is a hot function, and CDK is a fairly well-known employer. It will be important to highlight here what you have achieved, and what experiences/skills you have gained. If possible, please provide more details on your work.
- The startup would not count for much if it is not off the ground yet. Registered/unregistered is not of much relevance.
- Your acads are excellent. 87+% in college is fantastic. 10/12 are fine as well (the 10/10 CGPA in Grade 10 doesn't mean much, though - not very rare nowadays).
- Your ECA seem decent. No causes of concern there. Should help add some diversity to your profile as well.
- The big question: is the GMAT score enough? Paired with a strong app, it will not get you rejected. However, if you want to put yourself on safe territory, try and increase it by 20 points or more. Competition at the 2+ year experience mark is intense (around a third of ISB's Co2019 was in this bracket).

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.

Hi anbknaga

Excellent profile there. Acads/ECA/professional experience/leadership all is in solid place. For someone like you, even a 680+ could work, but if you are aiming, aim high, and go for 720+, as that will also help you at other places you consider. Also look at the IIMs(A/B/C) in India and NUS/NTU in Singapore as possible options.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.

Hi ankitpareek23
- Your profile numbers overall look good. GMAT seems quite solid too.
- The DCE tag helps, and your work in Quant Trading is a plus. The analytics work is excellent. The only thing to be considered here is that you will need to be very careful in expressing your career goals, as this is a domain ISB is not typically very strong at. If you wish to change domains, that too will need to be expressed carefully.
- On ECA, the NSS work helps, but points #1 (carries no weight), #3 (part of #2), and #4 (more technical) will get you little credit.
- With about ~10 weeks at your disposal, and the GMAT already done, you should work hard and put in sufficient time on your app.
- Overall, if you play your cards right you should have a good chance Ankit.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.

Hi
I have 2 queries.
1. Do you think I should retake the GMAT. I have heard that as my work ex is lower than avg, a higher GMAT score will improve my chances. I myself think that I can score 740 or 750. Should I spend my energy on that?
2. I am a bit less confident of my ECA as I have not continued any ECA after college. How much impact that can have?
Also, I want to continue in the same industry i.e. Finance. I couldn't get your point clearly about that domain thing you mentioned.

Hi

- Retaking the GMAT is not needed in your case. Yes, a 750 will always be better than a 720, but a 720 should be good enough to open the gate on the GMAT parameter for you.
- ISB does look for diversity in its class, and that is clearly reflected in its essay set for this year (even though the word 'diversity' is not mentioned). Having strong ECA can help in that regard. If you don't have it, then other factors will need to be looked into and will require a deep dive into your profile.
- Continuing in Finance is good. The point mentioned earlier is that ISB is not very strong at Trading or Investment roles (post-ISB) so keep that in mind.

Hi A brief about myself,

10th - 89%
12th - 72%
BE - First Class - 62% - Pune University
GMAT - Haven't given it yet

Work Exp - 6 years in Consumer Durables & EdTech in Sales and Marketing Positions , (Product Dev > Product Management > Sales & P&L)
Most recent Position held - Associate General Manager - Sales & Customer Success at a Series C Funded EdTech Start Up handling $10M USD.

To be Honest - I have not been a great guy at Academics. Extra Curricular has been as much as organising the Annual Cultural Fest as the Chief in Charge and once i've been into work life I haven't quite been active on that side of my application.

A few things I would like to understand:

1. Required GMAT to get through to ISB.
2. With "Diversity" very important and of-course a good talent that ISB wants in its warehouse to churn out after the course, what's the ideal admit?
3. What's important : Round 1 (rushing into GMAT now and applying with the score) at what score?
4. If Round 2for me then what needs to be done to differentiate? or is there no significant difference?

Thanks.
