The name of my U.G. University is Savitribai Phule Pune University. Also, would it help if in addition to my current profile I work for a year, learn a foreign language until level B2/ or do some additional course and then apply in 2021?

Hi Abdullah09 ..
Your academics are average and what is the name of this 'Top 20 Indian Universities'? Your extracurricular looks strong but you need to get at least 720 to have a chance. HEC's MIM is renowned and popular. You would be competing with people who have strong profiles and GMAT 750.

You need to work on getting a high GMAT score and craft a compelling story.

10+2 - 66 ( Grade A )
U.G. [Under Graduation] (Bachelors of Commerce) - 63% Grade 'A'
(Top 20 Indian Universities) I graduated in May 2018.

Extra-Curricular:-

I have won many debate competitions

3 years in a row during my U.G. in my institute

I have also won a couple of Business Quiz Competitions as well as various other Business Competitions. I also have won the College of the year twice in a business competition for my institute.
I have also participated and won in a couple of state-level Soccer tournaments.
I was a part of the Events organizing committee during my Graduation.

Work Experience:-
I have been working for the past 10 months in the field of Accounting.
I have also participated in many other social and business competitions.


Please give me your views about what would be a good GMAT score for getting an interview call as well as Conversion.

Also, suggest what can I do to improve my profile for having better chances of conversion.

Thanks for your help and suggestions.

Hi Abdullah09 ..
You can do what you are thinking but remember GMAT score should be the main priority. Apply to 2-3 other schools if things don't go your way.

Hello Experts,

Hi J2S2019 ..
Thank you for posting. You need to score at least 700 to compete with Indian applicant pool. I do not know anyone who have a score less than 690-700 (Referring Indian male from last 3 batches). There might be someone with an exceptional profile but I do not know anybody. Your have strong academics and your profile looks good in my opinion but you need to provide answers for below to check the fit:

1. Why HEC?
2. What are your short term and long term goals?
3. Which other schools you are applying to and where does HEC stands in your list?
4. Are you planning to settle in Europe?
5. Do you know French or any other international language ?
6. What are your achievements at work?
7. Does your work in limited to technical or you also take part in some business related activities?
8. When are you planning to re-take the GMAT? Your quant is good and clearly need a push in Verbal. How did you prepare for verbal? Can you opt for some course, personal tutoring and boost your score?

Leadership

Thank you for your kind reply. I know that i have screwed my GMAT score & i require a more healthy one to opt for premium B schools around the world.
Here is my answers to those questions you have asked :-


1. Why HEC? - I belive with the strong faculty & curriculum structure & with even stronger allumni network, HEC will provide me the platform that is unarguably the best suit for me keeping in mind my carrer objectives.
2. What are your short term and long term goals? - My short term goal is to get acquinted with the management style of working in a more channalized way with a reputed organization. In long term, i would try to build my own venture, a start-up basically in the health care industry.
3. Which other schools you are applying to and where does HEC stands in your list? - I was planning to apply for ESMT,Rotterdam & IE. But HEC stands first in the list.
4. Are you planning to settle in Europe? - Depending upon the situation at my hand after i complete grad from there & also on the work profile i will have at that time.
5. Do you know French or any other international language ? - Not yet.
6. What are your achievements at work? - Became the youngest team leader when my work ex. was ~ 3-4 years, clearing a business related certification internal to the organization, top performer round the clock for last several years, securing newer businesses from the end customer those are financially beneficial for the organization & many more.
7. Does your work in limited to technical or you also take part in some business related activities? - My Work scope dominantly is technical but i am also part of business related activities like driving efficiency improvement programs to guiding team to secure newer business scopes. (...mentioning a couple of these)
8. When are you planning to re-take the GMAT? Your quant is good and clearly need a push in Verbal. How did you prepare for verbal? Can you opt for some course, personal tutoring and boost your score - I am planning to re-take the GMAT in a month or two. I need a definite push in verbal, i am lagging there. Initially my mock verbak score varied a lot from V 28 to V 38 before my first GMAT. I have opted for a course & preparing for the GMAT with a more verbal focused approach now.

Hi J2S2019 ..
Thank you for sharing all the details. I think you have a good chance if you apply with 700 or more. Better score ~ Better scholarships chances. I would suggest you to consider IESE rather than IE. I think you are good fit for IESE as well. IESE is good for case studies and entrepreneurship. Why not Cambridge/Oxford?
If you have 700, target - HEC, IESE, Cambridge, Oxford.
If 650-670, target IESE, ESADE .. RSM, ESMT, Mannheim.

Thank you for sailing me through the darkness i am having right now.
some light is what i required to plan the coming days.

I think i will go for a higher score before i start researching & applying for schools.

one more issue i am on my hand is that if my years of experience will somewhat create any difficulties going forward, what i mean to say if it is a notch higher than the avg batch profile if not this year but next year?

Looking forward to hear from you.
Thanks in advance.

Good internships an extra-curricular, but how do you convert that as a 3.2 GPA? I'm not familiar with the grading at that university in particular, but your GPA is going to be a weakness you would have to overcome through e.g. a higher gmat.

Hi vidyuthanand90 ..
You can still apply to Jan 2021 intake. You can't change the profile. Kindly make sure that you have enough time to write compelling stories and essays and to prepare full application. HEC application is big and requires a lot of time. Your age is same as the average of the class. Your GMAT 710 is just above the average of the class. Your academics look strong. Professional profile is interesting. Extra-curricular is fine. So, overall good :)

It seems feasible that you want to go into consulting for few years and later join your dad's business. Which geographical area you are targeting for consulting jobs - India/US/Europe? In Europe, you would need local language. Do you know any International language?
Do you know the companies coming to campus or via networking that offer consulting jobs? Do you have some networking? Did you consult any current student or alumni about the path which you want to follow?

Thanks for the response and for the profile eval!
I am targeting Europe to consult in. I have already learnt a bit of French and German as part of my academics, but am planning to get at least a B1 level certification in French prior to the school start date.
I haven't networked with HEC alums as yet but have been in touch with a few INSEAD folks (already applied to INSEAD round 1). I will soon start getting in touch with HEC folks.

Thanks. Yes I am preparing for it. An advantage is that I applied to INSEAD already so I have multiple essays prepared just for this. I should be able to complete the HEC essays soon.
