Hi Vivek

- Your acads and GRE score are a bit low. Your objective of a 720+ on the GMAT is the right one.
- If we read your work-ex sequence right (feel free to add anything we are missing) and you are currently at ChessCube, that might create a bit of a question with respect to the consistency for a career in IT consulting. Your chess achievements are great, but you will need to clarify why you left a role that was more aligned to your goal.
- Would love to know more about how you see Chess as part of your future plans (personal or professional)
- ECA seems fine.

With a 720+ your chances at ISB should be good (not sure you are looking at ISB at all, but given that this is a thread for ISB profile evaluations adding a perspective on ISB).

This is not the right thread for discussions on other schools, so request you to post here:
https://gmatclub.com/forum/ask-admissio ... tants-124/




Thanks a lot for the guidance. To clarify the sequence, I started my career at ChessCube and I am currently working in Coal India's CSR Wing.

Thanks for clarifying. The CSR role is again a disconnect with IT consulting and the inconsistency in terms of the role/company (private to PSU) will need to be explained. Maybe you have great reasons for it - just pointing out that an inflexion point exists there that needs smoothening.

Your lower than average GMAT score can be compensated by the higher than avg work-ex. Most importantly, bring out the impact / achievements in your work which will be a deal maker in your case. Some extra curriculars during school / college will also add to your story. Hence, communicate a compelling story to the admissions committee. The colleges you should look at are: India - ISB, One year programs at top IIMs (A, B, C, L, I etc.), and Great Lakes. You may look at NUS and Nanyang in Singapore but they would prefer a higher GMAT score.

Hi Woody2Hoot,

With 7.5 years in the industry, we are sure we would be able to find a lot of leadership experiences that will help you put up a great application story. The NIT brand definitely adds credibility, but we feel we need to know more to really give you a fair evaluation. With a score of 640, things do get a little difficult, though not impossible, and a stellar application can still give you chances.

The question of which colleges you should apply to is answered best by mapping the school's ability to provide you a clear path to your careers. Why don't you have a look at our Free B school shortlisting: http://www.apphelp.co.in/Bschool-selection.htm and we can help you shortlist schools according to your profile. You can also decide if you need to retake your GMAT, once you have a clearer ideas of your target B-schools.

Do reach out in case of more queries.

Hi Abhishek

- Your work experience is quite rich. SBI is of course a very well-known employer. That should put you in an excellent position in terms of diversity, background, and experience for ISB. Not many people out there who get Treasury roles without an MBA/CA so kudos for doing that.
- That said, your undergrad academic performance was low, and your GMAT at 660 does not help. That is something you seem to be fixing already, though. If you can scale the 700 mark, you should be in good stead there. This is for ISB. If aiming for top US/Europe options, you are looking at a minimum of 720, and of course the higher the better beyond that.
- Your ECA are more personal than team-driven; you are not outstanding on this aspect but what you have should be good enough to get by.
- Getting into PE won't be easy given your work experience so far (not directly aligned, though in the right direction), and ISB as well as European schools aren't really doing well in terms of PE placements right now. The US is your best bet if these are your goals.
- The lack of experience in markets outside India will also be a factor as you apply to top international schools.

As this is a forum for ISB, not getting into specific European/US school options. You can contact us directly for a broader discussion on that. You can also post on the following forum, which is meant for discussions on international schools: https://gmatclub.com/forum/ask-admissio ... tants-124/

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

Hi Abhishek,

We think you've got an intriguing profile, with the right number of work experience and a brand like SBI. Experience in finance is definitely coveted at B-schools and you've definitely aced that.
You're absolutely spot on with the GMAT, you definitely need to retake it. In order to make it to any of the top B-schools, you should aim for a 720-730.
A background like yours while competitive, would also need to focus on the following aspects:
1. Make sure you highlight leadership and teamwork related strengths, which explicitly show non-finance and qualitative strengths. Candidates with a finance background, often make this critical mistake.
2. Showcase a well-rounded personality, with strong extracurriculars. With a background like yours, it becomes extremely important to display what you do beyond work.
3. Get more clarity on long-term goals. Getting into PE from a B-school is definitely difficult, though not impossible. We recommend you talk to alumni who are in roles that are coveted by you and understand what helped them reach there.

We'd like to know your profile a little better in order to help you short-list schools for your application. Why don't you try our B-school selector here?

Feel free to reach out in case of more queries.

Hi guys,

This may seem too early on, but I plan to apply by 2020... so it would be nice if I got some feedback in order to work on a few things before my application process.
Anyways, here's my profile...

- Female, Asian
- Born and raised in the Philippines (but I have dual citizenship with the US)
- Currently 21, but will be 24 years old when I apply
- 3.2 GPA (from a top 1-2 university in the PH) - around this range when I graduate as well (started out weak freshman year, but with a significant upward trend)
- Major in Management Economics, Minor in Finance
- Have international study-abroad experiences (one in Berlin where I studied the German Language and Culture), and I'll be completing another one this summer in London (LSE) where I'll be studying on the Global Economy and Financial Markets
- Internship this summer is with the Central Bank of the Philippines (where I'll be working in the Centre of Monetary and Financial Policy)
- Extra-curriculars: Founded a Filipino grilled food business and will be opening it in my university for 1 year this August - (Senior Year), Worked 1 year as a teacher in financial literacy in a poverty-stricken community every Saturday (sophomore year in college), Worked as an ambassador of a cosmetics company in the PH wherein I gave personality talks to teenage girls in a fishing community (freshman year); also part of other college organizations
- Will be taking the GMAT after college (will aim for a 720+)
- After college, I plan to work more on teaching financial literacy on the weekends to communities in the Philippines
- Looking also into a full-time job in the Philippine Stock Exchange, Citi, Department of Finance, Asian Development Bank, or anything in that field. (Will have 2 years full-time experience when I apply)
- Other fun details - Love travelling, mountain climbing, and is also a sports enthusiast

So, this is what I have so far, and knowing how competitive B-school applications can get, I'm looking to improving some aspects of my profile in the next 3 years.
Interested in HBS, Columbia, Fuqua, LSB, Yale, Wharton, Kellogg, Tuck, Sloan, Mendoza, and McDonough
Any feedback or comments will be very much appreciated.

Thanks for your time.


Hi

Quick question - are you planning to target only the full-time MBA programs through the regular route for the schools you mention, or are you looking at early career options as well (e.g. HBS 2+2+, Yale Silver Scholars)?

Hi

Please provide more details on your work experience, key achievements, and ECA. Also, what program are you looking at? You mention LSE in your school list, but it does not offer an MBA. At your experience level, you seem to be a better fit with MSc/MiM programs.

Hi Zak456,

From what we gather, you seem to have a good professional profile. With internships at JP Morgan and Deloitte, you should be able to showcase a rich learning curve. You haven't mentioned your total work experience, but our guess is you are targeting the MiM course or MBA schools which accept candidates at the lower end of work experience.
The current GMAT score and GPA are on the lower side for an MBA from top B-schools, but with a good application you should be able to get through the MiM courses. We need a little more information on your Extracurriculars to help you come up with a detailed profile evaluation.
On the goals front, we think that getting into a hedge fund is difficult and you would need to explain clearly the trajectory that has made you covet this goal. For further help, we recommend you try our free B-school selector here which will help you decide your target B-schools better.

Hi,

Please find my short version of CV below.

Academic qualification:
- 10th CBSE : 86%
- 12th: 93%
- B.E. (ECE): 82.5 (Class 2nd)
- M.S (Work integrated stuff) 3.6 CGPA

Experience: 14 years of experience in embedded software development from enigneer to project lead to Manager in a private limited company

Language proficiency: English, Tamil, Hindhi (basic) and Japanese (Basic)

I am 36 years old, thinking to enhance my leader ship and entrepreneurial skills by doing MBA but I am skeptical whether pursuing MBA at this age is worth it.
To be honest I dont have much experience in voluntary work as well.

At this point my idea is to do GMAT and get good score (more than 700) and decide everything later.. Is this a right approach ?
I am always deliberiating whether to spend 3 months time in GMAT preparation and then do absolutely nothing after that ..... I have a kid and given my work schedule, 3 months of time for GMAT is very precious which i dont want to waste it. If the prospects for me to do MBA is good then I would like to do it.
Is there a scope for getting scholarship for me after getting good GMAT score? By the way I recently moved to UK, will this be of any help in getting scholarship?

Thanks, hope to hear from you people.

Hi Magesh

- At the age of 36 and with 14 years of experience, you are a bit too old and too experienced for most full-time MBA programs. You can consider Executive MBA programs instead, including some good ones in the UK (Imperial, LBS, Oxford, and Cambridge are four options).
- You could also consider the Sloan Fellows programs. Read more about them here.
- Investing time in taking the GMAT is worth it provided you feel that you do need an MBA at this stage of your career. Embedded Software by itself is a great field to be in today, and is growing by the day. An MBA could help you move to say product management or account management roles within your industry. On the other hand, many firms also promote engineers to these roles. What does your firm do? Whether to prepare for the GMAT will depend on this answer.
- If/once you do decide that you are going to apply, you will find both the motivation and time to prepare for the GMAT. A 700 is a good score to aim for at your experience level.
- Another point to note is that a lack of volunteer experience does not hurt you in any way so don't worry too much about that. Your academics, experience, GMAT score, and apps (if you do put in strong ones) should be good to help you make it.

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