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.



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

Hi mooseonrun,

thank you for sharing your profile. You definitely have an interesting one.

By HEC's GE program you mean HEC's MiM Grande Ecole Program?

Are you planning to apply on Round 4 for this year's program? Or next year's?

Can you give us more detail on your summer internship at the consulting firm?

Besides your study abroad and exchange experiences, are you or have been engaged in any other extra-curriculars?

Thank you!
Alex

You are in good shape. Go ahead and submit a good application- focus upon the impact you have created through the clubs and during your internships.
The international experience will be valued by the admissions team

Hi mooseonrun,
1) Interesting profile (and that also means diverse profile, quite attractive to the Ad Com).
2) Your academics look great.
3) Some Work Experience would have been of great advantage, but, capitalized well, your internship may get you some points.
4) Your GRE scores look quite decent. Can you give the breakdown please?

We work with students seeking many top programs including MBA, MIM & MS. Feel free to pm for further help.

Hi! Thanks to you all for your evaluations of my profile. Yes, I do mean HEC's Grande Ecole program. I plan on applying in September this year for the 2019 intake. My GRE breakdown is Q167 V169 W5.0. I wonder what I could do right now to further improve my chances next year? I have a summer internship lined up but don't have any job offers yet (I could start looking). I'm a bit burned out from school and feel inclined to do a gap year but wonder how that's perceived by the admission office. I don't have concrete plans for the gap year if I do take one, but most likely I will be volunteering and traveling. Also, does HEC offer any kind of scholarship or financial aid for international students? Thanks again for your help!

Hi,

I'm not sure regarding your particular inclination towards GE. Do you want to consider an MBA at HEC? With your work experience in terms of the role you're doing, client and international exposure along with the number of years you've been working, I think you have a good chance.

In terms of GMAT maybe you can increase a little if you can give another shot at it. Maybe a 700 would be better considering HEC's average is around 680-690.

I'm part of an MBA incoming class as well with just 3 years of work ex that I'm yet to complete.

Let me know if you've any further questions.

Regards,
Gunjan

Hi thaks25,
Some things you already know:
1) As an Indian, Male, Engineer, you would be better off with GMAT scores 20-30 points higher than averages.
2) You need to introspect and present a better story, highlight your leadership experiences for impact.

Check out an article I wrote today...DON'T commit these mistakes when writing Essays for Admissions to Top schools.

Hi Gunjan,

I mistakenly wrote GE program as I wish to apply for the MBA program.
I am planning to apply for Sept 18 batch in the next round, deadline is 1st May.
So I don't have time for appearing for GMAT again.
Would you recommend me to go for it in this round because my priority is to get an admit in September 18.
Further is there a provision for submitting my updated GMAT score after the deadline date?
