Hello,


Nationality- Indian
Gender- Female
Xth- 69%
XIIth - 85%
Undergrad- B.Tech. in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from 'Park college of Engineering and Technology' affiliated to Anna University, Chennai
CGPA- 7.9/10
TOEFL- Yet to take
GMAT- 630 ( Q-46, V-31, AWA-3.5, IR-4)

Work Exp :
1. Worked for 4.2 years in Infosys. Progression from systems engineer to senior systems engineer.
- Handled several modules for US based client project, completed tasks as a sole person within tight deadlines and trained and mentored many new comers.
- Took many certifications within Infosys during the same timeline.
- Infosys Appreciation certificates and client appreciation certificate.

Volunteer Experience :
1. Involved in education of poor kids and other extra curricular activities at a local NGO.
2. Was a volunteer Animal Welfare NGO in the past for animal rescue.
3. Volunteer at Rotary club for education of kids and spreading awareness to them for maintenance of hygiene.

Extra Curricular:
1. Literary Captain of school for 2 years.
2. Certificate for presentation of research papers in National Level conference, Twice.

Do I have a chance at ISB ?

Many Thanks :-D


The Good points:
Plenty of extra curricular work. If you can showcase it well.
Academic grades have improved. Your class X grades are low, but you did well in XIIth and B.tech.
ISB wants to maintain a gender percentage, and the number of female applicants is a lot lower than male applicants.

The Issues:
Low GMAT score. Can you work on this? If yes, then you absolutely should.
IT Services background. This means that you will be competing with a lot of people. Makes things tougher.

I am no expert. I applied for the first time this year and have not done a hell lot of research, but based on what I hear from people, I feel that getting through will be tough for you, especially with that GMAT score.

Great profile.
What you will need to work upon is, pitting up a meaningful career story - what are your career goals? Are they possible to attain through ISB (if not make that clear that you will find yourself a job)? And why do you want an MBA now at this point in your career?

Do reach out if you'd want to discuss in more detail.

Thanks for your response.

Since most of my experience has been in Marketing analytics and I have worked extensively with Strategy/Product teams , I believe a move to a Strategy/Product manager roles in Banks , Retail or e-commerce companies post my mba will be a good career advancement for me.
And a lot of companies hire from ISB for such roles.

I have a few questions though.

1. How much of a deterrent will be my Undergrad gpa? And should I try to Improve my Gmat further to compensate for that? Will a CFA L2 next June'17 help if I think about applying next year?

2. Do you believe working for so many organizations in my 7+ years of WE will be a negative? And how do you think I can compensate for that.

3. I don't have any ECs with leadership experience.. though I have been doing project management for Some time.. will it be a red flag on my application?

Look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Thanks

Deepds,

If you submit a competitive application, you have nothing to fear, atleast for ISB.

Explain the reason for your low GPA. Your profile has more depth to it because of the adversities you overcame and still managed to pull up your grades through the CFA, the acturial science course and the GMAT score. Take the CFA if it helps you now or later in your career- not to supplement your education.

Adcoms like to see leadership experience, at the work place and outside. EXtracurricular activities give you a chance to showcase leadership outside work. Its great to have it, but in case you do not, still go ahead and apply. ISB does not place so much importance on extra curricular activities as the American b-schools do.

Changing three companies is not such a huge number in 7 years. DOn't worry about it, but if you think its a concern, you can address it in the optional ISB essay.

Hope that helps.

Rohan,

On assumption that you will submit a good application, everything looks good to me. DO explain in the application, what led to the transition to the non profit, and how have both your experiences together informed your career goals.

Hi Rohan,
You have a good GMAT score for ISB. How much leadership experience do you have on the work front? If you can show good leadership and team management experience in your application along with a clear reason on why MBA, why marketing and strategy post MBA and how it ties up to your past experience, you have a fair shot at getting admitted.

Though I'm not an expert but retaking GMAT would help.
Since this was your first attempt I see no reason why you can't improve another 20-30 points.
High GMAT will also balance your relatively weak acads.
Hope it helps...Feel free to let me know if I could be of any help..

Thank you Rohit for the feedback. I will try to attempt it again( given my work schedule, it gets really hard to find time to study).
Also, apart from my GMAT, how does my overall profile come out to be? Do I have a chance at ISB?

Hi Chitrangda,
I think your profile is descent, biggest positive is you're a female. I'm not sure if your work is IT, but the IT competition pool is really competitive.
Your work accolades look good but again what'll matter more is the repute of the company you work for...Another thing that strikes me is that you're already in a "leadership program", so think hard for the "Why MBA" and "Goals" question...
Again, a lot depends on how you present yourself...My interview was all about my hobby and it seemed they had already made up there mind.
A good application should surely get you in...

PS: As I said before, I'm not an expert. I'm just an applicant and an ISB admit this year.


Cheers,
Rohit

Thank you Rohit for the feedback. I will try to attempt it again( given my work schedule, it gets really hard to find time to study).
Also, apart from my GMAT, how does my overall profile come out to be? Do I have a chance at ISB?

Though I'm not an expert but retaking GMAT would help.
Since this was your first attempt I see no reason why you can't improve another 20-30 points.
High GMAT will also balance your relatively weak acads.
Hope it helps...Feel free to let me know if I could be of any help..

Hi Vaibhav,

The decision to retake GMAT is a good idea. 660 on GMAT is quite low, although people do get in with this score. I'd like to know more about your work related experiences, achievements and career goals to really understand your profile. These are always the key elements in your application.

Hi Chitrangada,

You have some great stuff going for you! You have a few things that will help you differentiate yourself - these will make good essay material. Ofcourse, you will have to present that info properly and show it as a consistent personality trait and not one-off recognitions.

You are good with your current GMAT score. If you can retake with minimal effort, then go ahead, otherwise use this crucial time to build your application instead. At 690, you are not in bad shape at all.

Also, there is little time left for 'profile enhancement'. I think you have some great points to talk about in any case. So, just present the best picture of what you already have.

Hope that helps

Dear MBA Decoder,

Thanks for prompt reply.

Below are the key points regarding my work ex

Initial 3 yrs as service engineer in US valve manufacture "Tyco Flow control" where I used to handle on-site activities like maintenance , irrigation, installation etc.

2nd company was exide industries Ltd (Battery manufacturer) as a Sr. Service officer and was heading service operation of Gujarat state with team of 9 . Worked there for 1 and half year

Current company is coffeeday Global Ltd ( CCD, vending machine manufacturing division ) and heading technical service operation of corporate clients for both Gujarat and MP states with team strength of 45+ ppl (more than 1500 clients ).
Joined CCD in June 2014 as an asst Manager Service and got promoted as manager service in March-16 (in just 20 months' tenure)
Have vast experience of team handling and after sales service .
Have taken the service levels of Gujarat and MP to top 5 states across India in CCD

About career goals :
Would like to go ahead with operations and learn the business management skills with the help of MBA

Specifically would like to be into the lead position of revenue generation based operation immediately after MBA & 5 years down the line would like to start own operation consulting , kind of small start up.

Hope this will help.

Do revert if you need any additional info
