Hey community :-D

I would be grateful if someone could evaluate my profile. I am a pretty down-to-earth person but I am curious what my chances for a Top MBA are.
I am going to apply in August 2017.

Here is my profile:

Nationality: Italian
Age: 23 (when the program starts I will be 25)
WE: 2 years (by the time the program starts) (insurance and consulting)
GPA: 3,6 (from a well known European university)
Toefl: 111
GMAT: 720
Leadership skills: During the age of 16 to 21 I kind of used to run my own business in the summer months. My parents own a hotel but they retired already, so I was in charge in running the business. I would say that I had a huge responsability because everything depended on me (7-8 employees). I don't know if I should mention this in my application.

Furthermore, I volonteered many years and I was on exchange on a well known American university for six months.

Dream Schools: HBS, Sloan, Yale, Booth, McCombs

I think the problem will be my WE. Anyway, thanks in advance. :o

Hi,

Please evaluate my profile for ISB.I am planning to apply for 2017 - 2018 session.

Mining Engineer from NITK Surathkal.

Founder of a start up backed by some high profile investors.Recognised by NASSCOM as a high potential start up in 2015.Start up is currently not in great shape because of prevailing market situation.Looking for a buyer but in worst case might need to shut it down.

Previous work ex :

Worked as retail consultant for 2 years ( Promoted once )

Worked as regional sales head for 15 months before perusing my start up full time.

Academics :

GMAT - 700 - Q 49, V 37 ( Does it make sense for me to retake it.I think I can increase my score by 20-30 points but not more )

CGPA - 7.45
12th - 73
10th - 70 ( I think these 3 are my weak points.How much do you think this will affect my chances and is there anything I can do to counter it )

Extracurricular :

State level Tennis player

Secretary of the cultural fest of my collage ( It is one of the biggest college fests in the country )

I was Rotaract coordinator for 3 yrs.Was responsible for organising activities like orphanage visits, old age home visits, blood donation camps, campus cleaning activities, Weekend teaching classes for underprivileged students etc.

Future goals : I am an out an out start up guy and would like to remain associated with start ups after my MBA.Would either like to do another start up or work for some VC firm.

Please let me know in case I can add anything for better evaluation.

Many Thanks.

Thanks for the early revert GyanOne. Can you also suggest non - Indian B Schools ? I am not restricting myself to Indian B Schools.

Also, request if you can tell me how strong is the profile or if there is any concern w.r.t. application to ISB ?

Request the seniors to comment on my profile standing a chance for ISB, IIM B, IIM C, IIM L (Yet to write GMAT, please advise assuming decent score)


Hi Gaurav

- While your professional experience is quite strong, your acads are not great (though we understand this is MU, but still). You would need a strong GMAT score (700+) here. For ISB, IIMB, and IIMC. For IIML, you could get by with less, but you should be aiming for as close to 700 (or above) as possible.
- Working with international colleagues will still count as international exposure. That may not be the same as international experience (working abroad) but it will still hold some value.
- Manufacturing experience is highly valued, and you have worked across functions, so you will be a strong contender with a decent app and a good GMAT score.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with further questions as needed.


An update..

Done with GMAT...could not cross 700 mark..ended up at 660.
With the kind of work schedule, i don't think i can put in extra effort and take GMAT retake within this admission window...

So with the available score and the profile described above..which institutes should i target within India

P.S. Even though I have not given a thought of an international MBA, i would appreciate if experts suggest a good international program i should apply ( Considering my score and profile)

Hi Anchal

Here is a quick assessment:

- Your academics and GMAT score, though not the highest, are fine and should be sufficient. ECA is fine as well.
- In terms of work experience, there is a significant recent change in your profile, and you should be able to explain that with respect to the need for an MBA and your overall goals
- You do bring in differentiation both with respect to your experience and your education, and that will help your application
- At this point, focus on expressing your goals and fit with an MBA clearly. That is going to be the critical part of your app.

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

Currently working in a PSU(BHEL) for 5+ years in design and development of traction machines for railway application. Have also developed new machines for Oil Rig application and diesel power plants.

Hi Ankita

- 630 would be a bit low for ISB. You should try and increase your score. For Great Lakes, even your current score may be sufficient.
- Other than that your profile is good and some pretty good leadership there. The Jagriti Yatra experience in particular is excellent.

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

International exp- Well, being in manufacturing setup, on-site work is absent. However, in my current function, I work primarily with international colleagues, I am not very sure whether this can be counted as international exp.


Extra currics- Pretty ordinary-

Request the seniors to comment on my profile standing a chance for ISB, IIM B, IIM C, IIM L (Yet to write GMAT, please advise assuming decent score)


Hi Gaurav

- While your professional experience is quite strong, your acads are not great (though we understand this is MU, but still). You would need a strong GMAT score (700+) here. For ISB, IIMB, and IIMC. For IIML, you could get by with less, but you should be aiming for as close to 700 (or above) as possible.
- Working with international colleagues will still count as international exposure. That may not be the same as international experience (working abroad) but it will still hold some value.
- Manufacturing experience is highly valued, and you have worked across functions, so you will be a strong contender with a decent app and a good GMAT score.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with further questions as needed.


An update..

Done with GMAT...could not cross 700 mark..ended up at 660.
With the kind of work schedule, i don't think i can put in extra effort and take GMAT retake within this admission window...

So with the available score and the profile described above..which institutes should i target within India

P.S. Even though I have not given a thought of an international MBA, i would appreciate if experts suggest a good international program i should apply ( Considering my score and profile)


Hi Gaurav

- Even with a 660, ISB still is a possibility
- The top IIMs (A, B, C) will be a bit tough with this score, but you could give IIMC PGPEX a shot
- The XLRI GMP and the SP Jain PGPM are other possibilities but the latter is now closed for further intake this year

GMAT 680(Q49, V32, AWA4 and IR7)
B.Tech from NIT Rourkela, Mechanical Engineering 7.63/10
12th : State Board 58 percent
10th: CBSE 75 percent

Had a 2 yr gap between 12th and B Tech.
Currently working in a PSU(BHEL) for 5+ years in design and development of traction machines for railway application. Have also developed new machines for Oil Rig application and diesel power plants.
Previously worked for Tata Steel in maintenance of hydraulic equipment for mining application for 1.5 year.

Not so extraordinary in extracurricular activities.

Please evaluate my odds for ISB.

Haven't also ruled out retaking GMAT so please suggest a GMAT score to get an ISB admit in Round 2.

Please suggest other decent options in India within reach with the current GMAT score.


Hi Neeraj

- A 680 may very well work out in your case, though if you plan to improve it please go ahead. Your PSU experience and project experience will be handy.
- The 2-year gap will need to be addressed in your app, though with 5+ years of experience, you should be ok on that front
- You may look at the IIMs (B,C), and the XLRI GMP as other options.

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