3. I am preparing for my GMAT . I need to know how much score will be good for me to get into IIM/ ISB
4. I am looking for my 2nd MBA just because to enhance leadership attributes and move to strategy / Consulting firm. I am not working as Team lead position but need to move to Sr Leadership position. This Tier 1 collages MBA can give me that boost to achieve my success and that desired position.

Thanks.......


Hi NewArrival,

Thanks for sharing more information.
An MBA would definitely help you move into a senior leadership position. While consulting is difficult to break into post 10 years of work experience, you will find plenty of senior general management and senior program management roles. A score of 700 should be good, though a 680 can also get you through with good essays.
The expectation from you would be that you are professionally accomplished and are able to display ample leadership potential. Demonstrating this in your essays would be the key to your application.

Feel free to reach out for a detailed discussion.

Hi All,

I am a software IT professional with a B.tech degree and will complete 4 years in the industry in August 2017. I have worked in Cognizant for this entire period and had the opportunity to work in onsite, Zurich, for four months and have led and delivered few projects since then.. The stay there was quite successful and i received a lot of appreciation for the same.
I got my first promotion in August 2014 and was promoted again in April 2016. My last two ratings have also been first.

I have been involved in sports(Cricket, table tennis, badminton and volleyball) and cultural activities since college days and have even led few sports and event teams during this period and won few awards as well.
I plan to take GMAT in September this year.
My academics :
10th : 92.8 %
12th : 92.75 %
B.Tech : 8.63

Kindly evaluate my profile and suggest the score I should target to get into ISB?

Hi Varun2708,

The good news is that you’ve been doing very well work at work. Cognizant is a decent brand. International experience helps too. Academically you’ve had a good track record and a GMAT of 700-710 should be okay.

However, it would be good to remember that the IT pool is the most competitive pool at ISB. Moreover, ISB looks at academics, work-experience and extracurriculars in totality. You seem to be on the weaker footing for extra-curriculars. (The ones from college may seem a little outdated)

Therefore, as next steps, you should focus your application on how do you go from a good profile to a spectacular one, to beat the competition. An application with good and impactful essays will help you move closer to your target.

Feel free to reach out for a discussion.

Hi lincy93,

A truly well-rounded profile!

Professionally you've done well. Deloitte is a good brand on the CV. The start-up experience helps too. Instances of leading team always make good application stories! Academically, you're on good footing too. Cherry on the cake are your extra-curriculars! We don't see a mention of goals, but please make sure that they are in line with your strengths, so that you can knit a solid MBA story!

It is now the time to hit the ball of the park with GMAT. A score of 700 should keep you safe (better to keep near the class average), and anywhere in the vicinity should be good too.

Do reach out post your GMAT, you do have a good chance at ISB.n Well-articulated essays that link your achievements to your goals will see you through.

As an ISB alumnus, I can say that you surely have it in you to get into ISB. A strong profile with a nice mix of academics, experience and extra-curriculars.

* You have fairly consistent scores across school & college. Getting a 700+ on the GMAT will be in line with this and indicate to the admissions committee that you are prepared for a rigorous 1 year MBA program.

* Experience as a Team Lead will be a plus and help write a strong story around your leadership potential - a key trait that ISB looks for.

* Diverse extra-curriculars add colour to your profile and will be good talking points in your essays & interviews.

Overall, a solid profile which has all the ingredients to make it to ISB.

Next steps:

* Get 700+ on the GMAT (while a 680 would also be fine but the higher score you get, the better)

* Write well-drafted essays which focus on your differentiators. Do not try to write too many points (a common mistake) to impress the adcom. Be focused.

Hope this helps. Feel free to reach out in case of any further queries.

Hi All,

I am currently working as a technical consultant in an IT Company. I have a total work ex of 8 years with two companies.

10th - 91.2%
12th - 86.6%
CGPA - 6.5/10

I have given GMAT twice with scores 610 and 650.

I have worked in various projects for clients in finance, retail, communication and healthcare domain. I started as an oracle developer and now working as a technical lead for a client application. I am looking for a profile change from technical side to business side and hence looking for an MBA.

Extra curricular-

I do not have any NGO experience.

I have been part of arts committee of our college magazine specifically leading the cartoon creation part.

I have been an active participant in cultural activities at school. I have a strong inclination towards arts activities however that is more towards hobby side and participation in activities.

I am looking forward for a one year MBA program.

Request an evaluation on my profile.
I would like to know where do I stand for ISB given I improve upon my GMAT score. ( greater than 700)

Is lack of NGO exp a possible roadblock ?

Thanks

Hi Rishu,

You have a great profile and and I can remember atleast one person from TERI who has got several b-school admits to top colleges in US/ India/Europe. Of course it will be easier to evaluate your profile in more details after knowing what you were doing at TERI, what impact you created there and what career objectives have led to the startup.
Its also important to understand what you intend doing after MBA.

Regarding the GMAT, aim for your best score, even if that's going to be a 690.

All the best,

Hi guptaneha, in view of your relatively low undergrad score it becomes imperative that you score well on GMAT (preferably 700+ or as close as possible to 700).

Do not worry at all about the absence of philanthropic / charity-work in your profile. It is never a showstopper and only a good to have attribute.

Also, in view of your significant work experience, would suggest that in your essays, you mainly highlight your contributions and experiences in your professional life (since school was quite some time back). School activities would not be all that important from a profile perspective for you.

Going forward, focus all your energy and effort in cracking GMAT and things would subsequently work out for you.

Good luck!

Hi Varun2708, things seem to be going on quite fine for you till now. Cognizant is a good brand and you have some International experience as well. Also, you seem to have done reasonably well (if not exceptional) in your professional life. Academics also seem to be quite decent and consistent.

Going forward, the single most important favor you can do to yourself, to enhance your chances of an admit, is to get a very good GMAT score (700+; higher the better). Considering your consistent academics, it should be possible for you to score well, provided that you put in significant effort towards your preparation.

Profile evaluation, Essay writing, and everything else can wait.

Right now, the entire focus must be in getting that enviable score.

Hi Rishu,

You have very interesting and distinguishable work experience. Depending on how you portray it to the adcoms it has the potential to get you an interview for sure. However, if you're only 8 months into your new venture the question arises - Why are you planning for an MBA so soon ? What will happen to your venture once you're into full time MBA ?
Barring this I think you have decent academics and good community involvement. I think you should score a little above average in GMAT around 710-720 to make your profile attractive for the adcoms. Hope this helps.

Best,

Hi Neha,

You have good work ex which implies you should have good leadership and team work experience. Generally for people with above average work ex GMAT score isn't rated as highly as for candidates with 2-3 years of work ex. Even then 650 is a little low. If you aren't able to score a 700, you should still apply to ISB. Gender diversity also helps you a little bit. I think no community involvement leaves an empty space on your resume and you don't want to do that. My suggestion would be to get involved now. Hope this helps.

Best,

Hi All,

I am a software IT professional with a B.tech degree and will complete 4 years in the industry in August 2017. I have worked in Cognizant for this entire period and had the opportunity to work in onsite, Zurich, for four months and have led and delivered few projects since then.. The stay there was quite successful and i received a lot of appreciation for the same.
I got my first promotion in August 2014 and was promoted again in April 2016. My last two ratings have also been first.

I have been involved in sports(Cricket, table tennis, badminton and volleyball) and cultural activities since college days and have even led few sports and event teams during this period and won few awards as well.
I plan to take GMAT in September this year.
My academics :
10th : 92.8 %
12th : 92.75 %
B.Tech : 8.63

Kindly evaluate my profile and suggest the score I should target to get into ISB?

Regards,
Varun


Hi Varun,

You have a good well rounded profile. Good work experience, community and extra curricular activities and academics. With 4 years of work ex you very good career progression. To set to apart from the typical candidate pool however, you should score a high gmat score like around 720.

Won't you get late in applying if you take your GMAT in Sep end? You will only have 15 days to prepare you application !

Best,
