I Would appreciate your thoughts on my chances in ISB PGP program this year, required GMAT Score and any other advice.

I want to know one more thing that would Covid-19 have any impact on the number of applicants to PGP Program in ISB this year.
Is it advisable to apply this year amid corona pendemic.


Hi Ajeet,

You do have a diverse background (PSU- atomic energy) so it would help catching the attention of adcom. In the past, we've consulted a number of candidates from PSUs so can definitely say that your passion for sports + music makes you stand out even more! A GMAT of 680+ backed by well-structured essays would put you in good stead for ISB. However, you need to articulate your post-MBA goals really well and why you want to move out of a good PSU job.

This year, a number of selected candidates have deferred their admissions to the next year and in general, there is an uptick in applications for b-schools during recessions as the expectation is that by 2022, things should (and would) improve. Hence, its a good year to apply but the competition would be tougher.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Manan

Hey,

Age: 25 yr

GMAT Score: 700 [Quant:49 , Verbal:36, I.R.:5 , AWA:5.5]

Educational Qualifications:

Graduation: BTech in Information Technology with 7.5 CGPA

I have founded a website where people can write and publish cricket blogs.
I have been into NGOs for the past 2 years.


Hi Kvakhil,

Your acads and work-ex are within the top 35-40pcile of the applicant pool. While you blogging, quora and the cricket website a really good and add an extra dimension to your profile, your focus should be on linking it with how you can add value to the school / your peers with that. Otherwise, it remains just another hobby.
Try to take another crack at GMAT if you feel you can score 720+, otherwise this score is fine.

All the best!

Regards,
Manan

Hi!
Your education and professional background is quite different from majority of the applicant pool at ISB. The projects and achievements you've listed there are good. You should add a perspective on what efforts and outcomes you've achieved during Covid in the application. I'd suggest a 680+ score to complement your profile.

All the best and reach out in case of further queries.

Manan

Hi Coldplay,

I like the band too, btw.
If you are a reapplicant, do tell how your profile has improved this year over last year?
Here are a few things that SHOULD improve this year:
1. Your GMAt score, to a 700+
2. Your work experience- what is new here? Do you have any achievements where you made a direct impact on the business? Applying as a software developer, when there are plenty of applicants with your profile, you will need to really differentiate yourself from them. Showing business impact is going to help do just that.
3. On the extra-curricular front, what achievements do you have?

So, you will have the onus of presenting yourself as a stronger applicant this year. Think deeper about the questions mentioned above and make a plan to work on the weaker areas until you submission deadline.

Hi coldplay! Since we still have time before the application season starts, I would urge you to explore the possibility of giving GMAT again, and improving the score by at least 30-40 points.

Since you are a re-applicant, improved GMAT score would be a very objective characteristic of the profile that can be significantly enhanced in the coming months.

We have had extremely good success rate with the re-applicants; however all the successful re-applicants were able to demonstrate some significant characteristic that had improved in their profile since the last application; improved GMAT score could be that characteristic for you.

Also, I don't get any visibility into your goals and motivation for MBA, but that can be thrashed out at the application stage.

Good luck!

Hi Raghu2, any specific reason to appear in GMAT? Since you're already comfortable with GRE, pushing your current score by around 7+ marks, could also do the trick.

Reliance Jio Digital Infocom GMAT :710
Mumbai, India

Hi Ved22, many good things going on for you: consistent academic performance, great job experience, and decent extra-curricular.

Now the focus has to be on application (whenever it opens up). Since all your experience seems to be in the Telecom sector, make sure that your goals are consistent with your past experience. Completely disjointed (whimsical) goals, with no alignment with past experiences, are very often the reason for not getting an interview invite.

I am working with Infosys Limited for the past 3.5 years.
I appeared for GMAT last year and scored 740(V39,Q50).

Overall, a very decent profile Amoghzz. It seems you have been performing very well at work as well. Do ensure that you project that in your application.

Since you want to go into Consulting, things can get slightly tricky here, because you need to bridge the gap between your current work at Infy and your future goal of Consulting.

See if you can highlight any strategy component of your work or even any interface that you might have had with strategy team(s), that piqued your interest in pursuing Strategy as a career choice.

Hi ms30, you do have a very decent profile; however, getting a better GRE score might not be a bad idea at all! It will help you distinguish yourself from the highly competitive pool that applies to EEO/YLP.

Hi Sonia,

If you have only one year of work experience and now you are on a 5 month break for studying GMAT, then its not gonna help you too much (unless you were laid off and have such a reason for not working right now)
Work experience is what makes one's profile most competitive and you will not have any work experience adding up just before your application to ISB. Add to that, you don't have much on the extra curricular front either.
It may be a better idea to continue taking the GMAT this year, while also looking for a job, and then applying 1-2 years later after you have amassed some solid work experience

Hi Rajesh,
Your GATE rank is exceptional, but it is a test of technical temperament, for ISB you need to complement it with a good GMAT score, at least 700+ to show your aptitude for managerial tasks. You have a very versatile mix of IT, PSU and family business in your job profile. Your work experience in a top-notch PSU such as IOCL will boost your candidature. Your association with your dad’s business and the other co-curricular involvements definitely add value to your profile. With a clear depiction of long-term and short-term goals in the essays, you can present a saleable story to the ISB Admissions committee.

For more information regarding MBA and career switch from PSU to Private sector check the free resources at http://psutoprivate.com/.
All the best!

Hi.

Hoping everyone is safe around in this difficult year.

Looking forward to get my profile evaluated and knowing my chances for ISB batch of 2021.

Age: 27
GMAT: Yet to take the exam, planning to give it by august 2020. (considering to apply for R1)

Acads:
1) Class X: 88% (SSC Board)
2) Class XII: 80% (HSC Board)
3) Graduation: B.Tech in mechanical engineering with an 7.8/10 CGPA
4) A member of PMI (Project Management Institute) and undergone official PMI training.

Work Experience:

1. Started working with Jacobs Engineering, as a design engineer in 2015. Since i was keen towards the management profiles, changed my role and entered project management group in the same company with constant hard work and diligence.
Under the new role I outgrown myself professionally. In a short span of 6 months i was leading a multi million project as a project control lead with a team of three.
For the same project i received an excellence award from the client Exxon Mobil for being Agile,Committed, Transparent and Responsible.
Also, i was awarded with the highest excellence award of the company called TAP for excellent performance.

2. Recently, i have switched and i am now working with Tecnimont Pvt Ltd.since the last six months.
The role being a senior project engineer, i am working with the cost management team for an 1500 crore Indian project.

Apart from all this i have been widely participating firm wide activities including CSR and participating in competitions. In my first company i was leading a group called Jacobs Connect, which was responsible for all the cultural and safety management sessions held in the firm.

Extra-curricular activities:
- Marketing head of college’s Cultural and Technical Fest
- An active member of an NGO formed by us and a group of students called as burning minds.
- Conducted many workshops for students, the highlight being a pre-placement workshop conducted for the entire batch.
- National level Dance certificates, and other activities like photography, Drama, UV acts etc.
- School and college level active participation in sports like badminton and table tennis.
- National level trekking certificate.

Others:
- I had co-founded a start-up with my friend but we had to shut because of our job commitments and being in different cities created problems. But the FB of the same is active and we have been guiding students for all the while.

Hobbies:
- Modelling, I am level 2 Salsa dancer, trekking.

Thank you so much for reading through such a long post. Would greatly appreciate your thoughts on my chances at ISB 2021, my target score, and any other advice such as any courses which i can under go online to strengthen my portfolio.

P.S: Do you think getting into ISB in 2021 will be tougher than usual ?

Thanks & Regards,
Rohan.

Hi Rohan,

Its a pleasure reading your profile first thing as I log in. I see a lot of leadership experience and impact - the very criteria that matter to business schools. You are on a fast track growth and follow that up with ambitious (yet realistic) goals in the application.
You have a good mix of extra curricular activities, although most are from college. The CSR activity is a plus- that's also part of your extra-curriculars, fyi. Jacob Connect supports the leadership experience (leading the program) that I earlier talked about. Ofcourse the results you achieved through these activities and the impact they created on the beneficiaries would be equally important.
I am going to root for a 710+ GMAt score. In terms of strengthening your profile, at this time GMAt should be on top of list. Everything else looks good.

I think admission at ISB is very competitive every year. Even this year, the set of candidates who apply will remain similar, although the vacant seats may be lesser. Bottom line, is you should absolutely present the best application you can. Feel free to reach out if you'd like to chat further.

Hi Sukriti,

While there is no lower or upper limit on the required GMAT score, its beneficial to get a 700+.
