Hi Saurabh,

You've got a decent profile. I am missing the details of your work experience- exactly what you do, what are your achievements at work etc. so it will be difficult to give a detailed analysis. That said, you acads look ok. I will assume that your work at Honeywell has been noteworthy and having experience in the oil and gas domain will help in building strong applications.

Again, it would be important to get into the details of what you do in your volunteering endeavors. Do add more details about your profile. You can also share your resume with me at contact@mbadecoder.com

Hello Zaw2511,
You have a lot of good things going for you, especially your GMAT score and other accomplishments. Also, think of highlighting your contribution to the community through Sankalp.
An important thing you should keep in mind is to highlight your achievements in your professional space, than giving your job description. Talk about the examples wherein you created impact and demonstrated leadership and do not forget to quantify them. Your role as an IT professional puts you in an over-represented pool, but you can talk about your achievements and impact to mitigate it.
Also, you can talk about your motivation for your ST goals, and, if possible, give more details. For example, is there any particular industry you would like to work in, etc. In all, you have a competitive profile if you position it correctly.
Hope this helps.

Hi piyushh19,

There aren't many sparks in your profile and you'd have very strong competition from the largely-represented IT pool. Your goal to transition into financial services doesn't link with any of your past experiences. Hence, there isn't enough evidence to demonstrate your passion for the sector. While the switch is possible post MBA, you should spend more time in understanding the sector and maybe take-up a role in one of the FS firms / or FS vertical within the MNC you're working at. Otherwise, it'll be difficult to stitch your goals for the application and more importantly during placements. While ISB will provide great exposure to the sector through ELPs, courses, projects, etc. you should do some groundwork before taking the leap.

Hope this helps

Regards,
Manan

Kindly review my profile and provide your valuable suggestions -

Profile Summary - 30 year old Indian working as an Senior Consultant in Big Four; GMAT: 710. As my GMATPrep scores were higher than than my actual GMAT score, planning to retake the exam in the next 15-20 days.

Post-MBA Goals
I am strong believer in growing by learning. Post MBA, I want to join a top management consulting firm such as McKinsey, BCG or Bain to learn and make impact on diverse portfolio of client engagements. In the long-run, I will work my way up to become a Partner, while building knowledge and relationships that transcend borders/companies and ultimately help grow the firm, future generations and me.

Why 2nd MBA?
Although, doing an MBA from top tier institute institute helped get me where i am today, my experience in the consulting world has helped me realize that to grow your brand equity, one must be connected to global educational brands. In addition, i believe that my second MBA stint would provide me opportunities to connect and work with a mature and diverse peer group, which will equip me with skills that would make me a better people's leader.

Extra-Curricular -
1.) Believe in "Health is Wealth" Mantra. An avid runner and sports enthusiast. I play Lawn tennis, Badminton and Squash almost daily.
2.) A huge huge Formula 1 fan (Ferrari of-course! :))
3.) A decent Sketch artist.


Hi nitis330120,

You have an impressive profile. The work experience spans across core consulting and consulting support and you'd have a fair idea of how the entire end-to-end engagement works. Hence, you'd have an advantage against the folks who're starting afresh / moving to consulting. Apart from the projects, the experience to develop the valuation tool also stands out.
The key question to cover would be the need for a 2nd MBA, especially when you're already within a type of role where a few ISB grads start with. The reasons you outline cover it to some extent but you'd need to put more thought in explaining in the 2nd essay.
For the level and type of experience, your GMAT is good enough. However, if you still feel the need to re-take, it shouldn't come at the cost of diverting your attention from the application. You should focus more there.

Your hobbies section is good and you should link it to the experience of the class. For e.g. we had formed an Automotive Special Interest Group at ISB through a group of F1 enthusiasts back in 2013.

All the best!

Cheers,
Manan
PS: +1 for Ferrari :)

Hi nitis330120, in which year did you do your first MBA?

p.s. Re-attempting GMAT is a good idea, since you were scoring high in mocks.

Hi piyushh19, this is going to be a tough cookie to crack brother, since your academic qualifications and professional experiences do not suggest anything even remotely connected to Finance.

Your goals do need some brainstorming.

short-term goal: To take up a Management Consulting role with a leading management consulting firm.

Hi Zaw2511, the term management consulting is very broad based and might be perceived as lack of sufficient depth/thought to career goals. Also, based upon your work as a software programmer so far, how do you plan to justify this career transition?

p.s. Congratulations on your brilliant 760 on GMAT! This will definitely help you in loads.

Hello nishg33,
You will have to target a higher GMAT score than what you currently expect for a better chance at ISB. Your profile will help you distinguish, but you will have to talk about the impact you created and demonstrated leadership potential at work.
Most of your hobbies and EC are closely related to what you do. As an automotive journalist, you may not have a certificate, but will definitely have articles published in your name. Also, think of EC, wherein you helped contribute to the community.
I get no sense of your post-MBA goals from your profile, which makes it difficult for me to comment any further.

Hello mikaku,
You may want to improve your GMAT score to compensate for your below average academic grade in undergrad.
It is interesting and also adds to your leadership profile that you founded a firm and operated it for three years. You may want to talk about these experiences in your essays.
Talk about more recent EC in your application.
I do not have a sense of your post-MBA goals, so would not be able to comment any further.

Hello chimpu303,
Your GMAT score compares with the average GMAT score for ISB. I do not get any sense of your post-MBA goals from your profile. What jumps out to me is that you have moved industry from IT. Again, I won’t be able to comment further without an understanding of your post-MBA goals and an understanding of your accomplishments at work.
