Thanks for sharing your profile. On paper you have the right data points to compete at most of these schools with Kellogg and Insead being the most challenging with the rising GMAT scores at top schools. You know you are coming from a very competitive applicant pool so your numbers will not have you standing out too much. The key for you is to find some unique elements to help you jump off the page or differentiate yourself. It seems you have a strong interpersonal background which can be rare from this pool so that may be a good strategy

Hello Applicant!

As rightly pointed out by my fellow members in the post above, you come from a highly competitive pool - it is a both a complement and kind of a curse. But hey, we are Indians!

Schools such as Kellogg and INSEAD are highly demanding when it comes to scores. They appreciate your diverse work experience, but they love your GMAT scores more.

We think you should give ISB a shot, along with Cornell. With a good essay and application, we think you have chances at both of them.

It is a bit difficult to comment on Ross due to limited info on your profile. Why don't you get in touch with us and send in a detailed profile along with your short and long term goals, and we can help you in detail.

Dear Prats92,

You have a good profile and seem to be doing well in your career and your GMAT score is also at par with mean of most target schools.
However we are unable to comprehend why you want to pursue your 2nd MBA when you have completed your 1st MBA from a relatively prestigious school. The admission committee too is likely to grill you on this aspect. The rationale and what you will achieve from pursuing a 2nd MBA needs to be looked at.
However we are sure that you would have thought these aspects. On other aspects, we believe you, as stated earlier, have a good profile and GMAT score and we see no reason why you can’t land an admit in any of your target schools.

Our recommendation:
1) Re-evaluate your reasons for doing a 2nd MBA
2) If you are keen to do your 2nd MBA, focus on maximising your return i.e. aim for top schools only. We see no reason for you to pursue your 2nd MBA from a Tier-2 school or as you said ‘safe schools’
3) We do recommend that you look at your work profile and see whether you have the diversity of experience in your resume i.e. have you got the opportunity to work on different kind of engagements and are not limited to single type of work in Advisory.

We also hope that you are consistent with your ECs i.e. volunteering with Make a Difference and Toastmasters since more often than not, given the work pressure at EY; candidates are unable to pursue their volunteering activities.

We will love to take this conversation forward as we can relate well with you (one of our co-founders is an EY Advisory Alum :) )
