Hi has ISB started rolling out interview invites for R1?

Has anyone received interview invite?

Hi!

Yes, R1 interviews have started, mostly for candidates with high GMAT, but interview calls will flow in throughout October. Different cities have different dates (mostly weekend). So based on your interview location, you may get an invite 5-7 days before the interview date.

You may use the time to read Real ISB Interview Experiences here: https://www.isbmantra.com/resources/isb ... nt-banking

Feel free to send your application pdf to info@isbmantra.com for a chance analysis.

All the Best!

2017-2019: Worked as Business Analyst in Capital Markets and Broking Domain with Angel Broking. I worked on a trading product and looked after all its development planning and coordinated with the software developers to make the product live

Hi all,

So here it goes -
Xth (CBSE) - 87%
XIIth (CBSE - Science stream) - 82%
B.Tech (Mechanical) from Amrita University - 7.66 CGPA
GMAT - 680

I worked in L&T as a Marketing Executive for 3 years.
The role encompasses Market research, competitor analysis, branding, communications and a little bit of corporate strategy as well).

Later, I switched over to the non-profit sector and did the 2-year fellowship program with Teach for India, where I taught children in a low-income community.
During the fellowship, I started an Ultimate Frisbee club, which later turned into a small non-profit organization by itself. The primary driving forces of this NPO are to promote gender equity in sports, to develop positive communication between children & all their stakeholder and to facilitate conflict resolution in the community where I worked. I also worked towards the rehabilitation of teenage drug-addicts. The NPO is supported by CSR of USHA International and the ultimate players association of India (UPAI), which is again recognized by WFDF (World flying disc federation).

While working on the NPO, I also worked as an Instructional Design Writer in an education firm based out of Boston. Though our working location was Hyderabad, the firm caters to low-income communities in Africa, India & China by providing them with affordable, quality education. My primary role was to author books on Quantitative Reasoning for grades 1 to 7. I authored 2 books and co-authered 3 books on QR and basic numeracy.

In between the fellowship, I also interned at ISB for 2 months in the SRITNE (Srini Raju Centre for IT & Networked Economy). I was directly working with the associate director and an ISB prof. It was mainly research oriented and we worked on some impact assessment studies of some government initiatives. Won't go into details since I signed an NDA with them.

In future, I would prefer to work in the development sector as a senior manager.

I know I have a low GMAT but I am not entirely sure if I can take the test again in the given time frame. However, most candidates applying to ISB have an average of 700 score.
Do I even stand a chance? If yes, how?
If no? What are my other options here? (I am open to b-schools outside of India as well).
Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Note: A big shout out to GMAT CLUB moderators BB and Bunuel for helping me in my GMAT prep. I wouldn't have gotten this 680 score also, if not for them!

Hi Sashank,

You should apply to ISB even with your score of 680. I see a good chance for you to get an interview call since your profile is very different from many other applicants. I would also rank your profile higher than other applicants for your marketing experience (different from IT background), non-profit sector experience, co-founding a Non-profit org, authoring books and previous experience at ISB. However, a lot will ride on your application and how you present your unique story to the admission committee. Start working on your application and present a stellar application and you should get an interview call soon.

Regards,
Tridisha

Hi ,

A 770 GMAT score and an MBBS degree places you at a good position to get an interview call. However, minimum 24 months of experience is necessary for applying to ISB, so do look into that.

Regards,
Tridisha

Hello Everyone,

As a prospective aspirant of ISB, i am writing in to get some clarity on my profile for the class of 2021(PGP Management). I need a sincere feedback.

My credentials are as follows:

Age-30
Status- Married Female(Sikh)
Residence- Mumbai

Qualification: I am a chartered accountant, having cleared it 2013 in the first attempt. I have done my training of 3 years in Audit and tax from one of the big fours for one year and two years in a mid size firm.

Work experience: Post completion of my CA, i joined Citibank (Mumbai) in the division of treasury operations. I was part of the derivative team and have handled the product across various desks like deal authorisation, settlement, statutory reporting, documentation, controls etc. I have worked there for approximately 3 and a half years.

Then with the keenness of learning something new i took up a role in Weatherford, it is a US based Oil drilling and services company. There i was part of a new team in which we had to set up a whole new finance desk in the Mumbai office taking over responsibility from Dubai for the books of accounts of the African region. It was an absolutely new experience and challenging task demanding a set of new skills in terms managing and setting up new procedures.

After a stint of one year in Weatherford and after getting married i moved on to understand the family business of the family i got married into. It is a manufacturing as well trading company diversified into Pumps and food machines. Having been in a job for a long time, i realised there is a lot more exposure needed to manage the business. It is an extremely interesting and satisfying role to run a business but also extremely challenging since it is not an absolutely professional set up. I felt i need some more managerial experience outside my family circle to manage my people and make it a more professional organisation.

Fortunately, i got an opportunity to work for the treasury operations of RBL bank. My current role is of an Assistant Vice President handling both the FX and derivative product and managing a team of 5 people. Since the bank is in the state of expansion the learning curve has been steep.

By all the opportunities that i have got and with an experience of approximately 6 years, i have the ambition of moving from operations to business side of the organisation. Having learned the ground work, i am confident that i can add value to any business but i also need the support and guidance of an institution like Indian school of business. I want to widen my horizon and get attuned to all the business functionalities. ISB will help me to get my feet in the world of consulting and then eventually help me build more structure and professionalism in my own organisation.

GRE Score- 309
My biggest concern is my score, which i know is on the lower side. I had thought of giving it again but with all the commitments at work and home, i am finding it really difficult to manage.
I am also running out of time due to my age and do not want to delay my MBA any further. And doing my MBA from ISB has been my dream.
PS: I know nothing is impossible but i have also tried giving GMAT for the last 2 years and switched to GRE(due to a low GMAT score), only to realise that i am not great at these structured exams.

Considering, all this i really want to know whether i should go ahead and apply in the round 2 with this score or should i really take the exam again.
Would really appreciate a response. Thank you so much for the help.

Hi Pau1,

With 3+ yrs of technology experience you will need a GMAT score higher than the class average (710+). Your profile in interesting and what sets you apart from other applicants is your exposure to co-founding a start-up, running a delivery kitchen and your business analysis background. A strong application and stellar essays will be essential for you to get interview calls. Focus on that and complete your GMAT soon.

Regards,
Tridisha

Hi Guneet,

Since you cannot retake the GRE, I would urge you to apply. You have a good profile (from the limited information given), but you definitely need to think more on your future goals. A lot will ride on how you leverage the application and the essays to highlight your profile, and i would urge you to focus on that for now.

Regards,
Tridisha

Hello people,
I was wondering if anybody has applied to the ISB with GRE scores and received an interview invite? I only see people with GMAT scores.

Thank You

Well that's not correct. Several of our students who opted for GRE, have received interview invites.

Hi JK2808, very decent acads and career profile.

Your aspiration for Management consulting post-MBA, would need brainstorming. You should target 700+ on GMAT; obviously, the higher, the better.

Do you think I got a chance an ISB?

You certainly do mrishan1993. Decent UG college, a startup, and Product development experience will all work in your favor. Make sure you highlight them in your application.

You've not stated your career goals though. Articulating them well, will go a long way to boost your chances on an interview call.

GRE Score- 309
My biggest concern is my score, which i know is on the lower side

Indeed gsetia001. GRE score is on the lower side Guneet and can influence your profile that is otherwise quite sterling (CA in first attempt, great professional experience, family business experience etc.).

Your concern about time running out is also not unfounded. Since you've already had a long tryst with standardized tests, I would now suggest that you should focus all your energy in crafting an immaculate application that does justice to your profile. The expectation will be that your application compensates for your score.

All the best!

Hi all,

So here it goes -
Xth (CBSE) - 87%
XIIth (CBSE - Science stream) - 82%
B.Tech (Mechanical) from Amrita University - 7.66 CGPA
GMAT - 680

What an interesting profile sashankvissa. TFI and various social initiatives are a big plus. Your goals also seem to be aligned with your experience in the non-profit sector.

Articulate your profile and your goals well in your application, and 680 on GMAT should not be a problem.
