lease review my profile, I'll be applying to schools starting in 2019:

I am 24 years old, Indian female.

X- 94.4%
XII- 94.8%
B.E in Chemical Engineering- 9.01/10 CGPA from a top state university
GMAT - 660 (Q47 V34 IR6) (not too pleased with the score, might go for a re-take)

<<snip>>

My major concern with respect to the application is my GMAT score (My target score was 700-730 while prepping). I want to attempt it again and hopefully cross the 700 mark. :?
What would be my prospects like if I apply with my current score?
Is there anything that would strengthen my application further especially with respect to scholarship options?

A few thoughts on your profile athena18:
  1. The nature of your work sounds pretty interesting and not very common for an engineer. However, it'll help to have a lot more granularity and clarity in your post-MBA plans. Read here.
  2. The ECs arc looks pretty solid overall and should help. HEC values diversity and continued efforts on this front will definitely be valuable. If you are planning to apply next year, see how you can ramp this up - especially on some of things you've done in the past.
  3. For reasons mentioned here, we do not speculate on school selection. That being said, I'd say that the GMAT may not be a complete deal breaker. A story here to take some inspiration from. A higher score will certainly help a lot though.
  4. Finally, cast your net wider. Applying to only one program is never a very prudent strategy.

Hope this helps some.

Cheers,

Background and nationality: Indian, Female (24)
Undergrad Information: Engineering; 6.9/10
GMAT: 710
Work experience and leadership:
3 years as Digital Marketing Analyst at a reputed SaaS company - the quality of work was good; involved in hiring, strategizing and decision making.
4 months as an Inbound Marketing Lead at a fast-growing SaaS startup - responsibility is huge and the impact is just showing up.

Community and others: Founder and President of a registered NGO since the 2nd year of college. Conducted impactful programs, raised good amounts of funds; Awards: 3 for my NGO and 1 Best Student award by a council (state); Held leadership roles during college; Freelance writing.
Got 2 recommenders: 1 (a senior marketing manager who I did not directly report to) from my previous company and the other an IAS officer who we've worked with for my NGO's programs.

Post-MBA goals: Work in Consulting in strategy/marketing. Long-term: entrepreneurship in zero-waste management/engineering.

Anything else? Target schools were IESE, ESADE and HEC. Considering I go for a good consultant and I apply for the Oct -15 round (worst case the Nov-15 round), how good are my chances for HEC Paris's Sep 2019 intake? Any other input are also welcome! TIA.

A few thoughts on your profile Gayathri:
  1. The professional experience looks good given that it has a strong marketing flavor. This will help you differentiate well from others in the sector. Do think a bit more deeply on your post-MBA plans and their practicality though. Strategy consulting is fine, but marketing consulting can be super niche.
  2. The NGO aspect is pretty good and will help add the much needed diversity flavor which is very highly valued at all your target programs. Make sure to leverage those well.
  3. For reasons mentioned here, we do not speculate on school selection. That being said, the overall profile looks pretty sorted to me and with the right set of applications, no reason to believe why you shouldn't have a good shot.
  4. Most schools would prefer professional recos - so the IAS reco may not be always ideal. For European programs, also bear this in mind - international experience.

Hope this helps some.

Cheers,

Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Your blog post is helpful. Might have ended up missing out on the global experience tone. But regarding the recommender, the only other person I can think of is my previous manager. And that makes up to 2 recommenders from the same workplace and I'm afraid the trust and reputation I got through social work(collaboration there) would not get represented otherwise. Any thoughts on this?

The post here should help on recommender choice Gayathri. 2 recos from same workplace is ok as long as that covers the most part of your work.

Do feel free to reach directly for more perspectives.

Hello berliner18

The 'stats' of your profile are decent, if you attain that target GMAT.
Further success will depend on how well you bring out the 'qualitative' side as well.
Focus on all the admission factors mentioned here and tie it in with a compelling need of an MBA (read here) in your written application.
For HEC, it will help to showcase an international outlook as well (don't confuse it with international experience).

A few thoughts on your profile berliner18:

  1. The work profile and especially the BA roles sounds good - assuming that means a lot more business than tech alone. The post-MBA plan however needs more granularity. Read here.
  2. The higher score will definitely help. So will the ECs - HEC and European programs especially value such efforts.
  3. The GMAT will be very useful. You have not mentioned any brands you have been associated with - this will be important to understand and judge the relative importance of your work.

Overall, play your cards right and things should definitely be very interesting for you.

Cheers,

Hello Eeshangeel

The contours of your profile look pretty solid for HEC.
Past acads, expected GMAT, international exposure, all work in your favor. You may want to read here to know what factors to highlight in your written application.
Not sure what your career goals are though- they will play a vital part in your written application and assessing your final fit at HEC. You can read here to add to your research on career goals.
Since you will be taking the GMAT in Nov, you will be applying in the later rounds. Applying for Jan 20 intake might be better as you will be applying to R1 mostly (please check the dates) and applying earlier is always better considering the large pool of applicants you belong to.

Eeshangeel,
Your profile looks rich. You have a chance at much higher ranked schools, especially those wherein your post MBA employment could be better. Any particular reason you want to apply to HEC?

Hi Skyline393,

thank you for your post.

We're going to need a bit more detail in order to assess your profile.

(a) Which positions did you hold at Samsung and that Australian company?

(b) Do you have any international experience? Are you living (or have lived) outside of Vietnam?

(c) What are your career goals?

Thank you very much.

Best regards
Alex

Hello Neha3011

Interesting profile from a work ex and extracurricular point of view.
Needless to say, target a high GMAT score.
In your work ex, showcase international motivation (essential for HEC) and career progress, achievements and impact on the business of your organization. All the more so, as you are on the lower end of work ex (in terms of years) for HEC and will be one of the younger ones. Competing with other applicants you should showcase higher levels of maturity and achievements in your application.
The extracurricular and certifications look good, but just as in work ex, focus more on your contribution and impact here rather than a laundry list.
Coming to career goals, though you are looking at moving in a similar space and HEC is a good school for your target sector, you will need to be more specific in terms of what role are you targeting for the short term, what is your long term vision and why is an MBA must to reach that long term goal. Also, 'why now' will be a critical answer for your specifically.
Tie the above well in your essays.
Lastly, not sure of the timelines, when are you planning to take the GMAT and what stage of preparation are you in and what round you are planning to apply in. If it goes too late, you are better off applying to the Jan 2020 intake. It will help you apply in R1, increase your work ex further (quality matters more than years though) and give you more time to prepare for the GMAT (hence target a higher score).
