Hi dreams101,

thank you for sharing your profile.

You definitely have good chances to get admitted to HEC Paris.

Your GMAT score is 20 points above the school's average and both Q and V are above 60% as HEC Paris recommends.

Your extra curricular/professional activities are also quite strong, although it would be very helpful to know the dates.

Your career goals seem to be very clear and justify the need for an MBA.

In order to do a more complete assessment though, it would be really helpful to have more detail on your work experience, especially your main accomplishments and cases where you have exhibited leadership and teamwork.

Why don't you send me your CV (alex@ruizlee.es) for a more complete evaluation of your profile (at no cost)?

Like I said, you have good chances of admission, but the Indian applicant pool is extremely competitive, so you will still need to put together an outstanding application.

Good luck!
Alex

Hi HarryAxel,

thank you for sharing your profile. I think you have a shot at HEC's MiM program.

Your 680 GMAT score is about 20 points lower than the school's average, however:

(1) You come from an under-represented background (only 5% Africans in last intake)

(2) You already have internship experience in large banks

(3) You have some international experience (exchange program at Dickinson College)

(4) Your extra-curriculars are quite strong

Just make sure you put together a strong application and articulate very clearly your motivation for HEC's MiM.

I hope this helps.

Good luck!
Alex
