Hi Rohan,

You have a well-balanced profile with a good GMAT score. I think you have a decent chance of getting in top MIM Programs. ESSEC is among the top programs in the world. You may also look at St. Gallen, HEC and IE. Research about CEMS programs, here you will get the opportunity to take an exchange program in a wide range of schools. Moreover, you will join a large alumni network of CEMS schools. Please get in touch if you want to discuss this further and hire an external help. Hope this helps.

Best,

Thanks for the response!

I have a follow-up question. If I apply in Round 1 and get rejected, does the rejection affect my chances of getting an admit in subsequent rounds/next year?

Again, Thanks
Rohan

If you get a rejection then R1 then I don't think you can apply in R2 of the same application cycle.

And if you apply next year I don't think it will affect negatively on your profile as a reapplicant. On one hand, it shows your commitment to that school and on the other, you have the burden to prove improvements in your profile from last year. I know this is not the answer you're hoping for but there is no straight answer to this question.

Hey there,

8.5 is a pretty decent score; GMAT is great that would help you out. You have pretty decent extracurricular, but you need to showcase how they helped in creating value for the community.

Regarding internships, where exactly you did your internships would matter a lot because you would be competing with people who have a really strong work experience (in terms of brands and job responsibilities)

Overall I would say ESSEC would be in the competitive category for you. But you still have a 70-75% of chance.

Gmat target - 680-730
should I target to get hec, essec or escp for MIM?
I have 7.68/10 cgpa from GLA University equivalent to 76.8% or 4 GPA (GMAT standard table).......passed in 2018........ NO Work experience except an internship from a factory, which is now closed due to some new governmental rules.
I had been a member of Rotaract Club sponsored by Rotary International for social works (High-school Time)
Won a talent test and got a gold medal in one olympiad talent exam and also earned certificates in many exams at my schooling
Then at my graduation, I had been the head or coordinator or organiser of 6 events
I participated and got 4 certificates in some entrepreneurship-oriented competition at my college
Then I got a certificate in TALL BUILDING STRUCTURES from one of the prestigious institutions of India, INDIAN INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
Then I was the campus ambassador of one of the top management college of India, Indian Institute Of Management, Banglore.

Then I did some online certificate programs from some great universities -- ESSEC (Marketing Analytics), HEC (Leadership- Souvoir Relier), THE WHARTON (Introduction to marketing), University of California (Time management)

please guide me, I am losing much-required confidence due to this one year gap.
Your guidance will be very helpful to usher me toward my goal

Yeah the last thing I am learning french, and now I am at least able to make a few sentences, I can't vouch about fluency unless I live in a French environment...But I think It would help, would it?

Hey Tanmaysaxena97,

I would say that your profile is reliable for the top 10 MiM Schools. You have mentioned HEC, ESSEC, ESCP as your target schools, which happen to be in the

Now, very honestly, I would say HEC would be slightly tough unless your GMAT is 700+. The school is notorious for recruiting from the top UG colleges of a country, so this will be more of a dream school for you.
A 7.5+ GPA is fair enough - not a dealbreaker, but make sure that you are highlighting other profile strengths to compensate for the same.

Your extra-curriculars are interesting - You have been involved with some good brand names like Rotract and IIT, and I can see that you have some quantifiable achievements in the form of awards and recognitions as well.
However, I feel that you are slightly under-selling your extra-curriculars - The achievements and learnings are not quantified properly. I would suggest you brainstorm and come up with strong data points to represent your extra-curricular section. If represented properly, they can help differentiate your profile and even compensate for the GPA.

Do not under-sell your internship as well - You have mentioned an internship at a factory but have not given many details on the duration, job profile, etc. So I cannot comment on the same.

Can you take up a free profile evaluation and provide me with those details? Would be able to help you out better than - Here's the link: https://mim-essay.com/profile-evaluation?gcf
About the Gap year, if you can justify the reason for the same and highlight the activities that you might have undertaken during that period, it might not be a massive roadblock.


It is completely fine that you are yet to master French - Many international applicants work on their language skills while studying the program so this is not an issue.

About your target schools, as I had mentioned HEC can be a dream school, ESSEC and ESCP come in the competitive category while Grenoble can be bucked under a safe school.

I hope this helped, good luck!

Hey! Abhyank
I managed the whole factory actually it is a long story though how I got the whole factory in hands. But the experience at managing on my own was awesome. I know still MNC is something big when we compare to a unknown factory. However managing a factory, I think, was like managing a plant of some MNC, I don't know, but maybe it was like that. I managed everything from labour to orders to suppliers. I learnt not just from the owner but from the labour, but then decided to get internship certificate from the owner, he said okay! I wasn't paid anything but I was exempted from the rent of the room.

Yeah I will try to represent my extra curriculars with more clarity and foundation.

And Yeah I am targeting 700+, otherwise I won't join any school.

Btw, In the gap year, I did this internship, I have been campus ambassador of IIM Bangalore for 2 months or so. I did many courses which show my dedication toward my goal in business oriented career. Courses are from prestigious schools like Hec, UIC, Essec and The wharton, and I got good knowledge about marketing and various aspects of it and leadership, time management and a little about marketing Analytics. I am looking forward to do 2-3 more courses so that I can have good knowledge about where I am going is actually made for me, ensuring a leap in my career before even joining the real one.

Thank you so much for your precious time. I am glad you gave me great feedbacks.

One more thing, Insead representative for MIM checked my profile and she said your everything in your profile is commendable and you have had a fulfilling gap year. However target for 700, as you said.

Please reply now if I have clarified everything properly.

Hey tanmay,
Thanks for providing more details. I particularly find your internship story very interesting. I kind of had an intuition that you were under-selling it in your original question -and I am glad that you provided me with more details as I feel that this can be showcased very strongly in the application. This Reminds me of a client who thought he had a weak work ex, but we managed to create a strong story around his work ex that was instrumental in getting him admits to HEC, Duke, and Cornell - That too with scholarships. ( You can read more about his case here: https://www.mim-essay.com/client-stories-3/). In your case too, I feel that the story around your work ex has a lot of potentials so make sure that you are brainstorming and strategizing properly to showcase the same in your application.

Stick to your target of getting a 700+ on your GMAT and let me know how that goes. However, you need not think that with below 700 scores you cannot join a good school - We have had clients who got into schools like LBS, Michigan with scores of 640 as well. However the selection depends upon the overall profile and application and is subjective, so yes aim to score as high as you can on your GMAT.
It is great that you are taking up courses - but I would suggest you expand your horizons a bit. Schools will be more interested in how you used the learning from the courses undertaken - So look into publishing papers and getting a related internship.

Good job on getting positive feedback from INSEAD :) But a gentle reminder that Tier-1 dream schools will attract great profiles across the globe, so continue on building your profile and working to create your strongest possible application.

Good Luck!

Thanks again Abhyank! And yeah I will definitely take suggestions from you or mim-eassay. And yeah now I am volunteering at UN in which I am teaching underprivileged children and as you said I am trying to get something out of those courses I have done, I am helping one of my friends in his start-up, which is actually not registered company right now due to some reasons, but I can describe how I am giving some good marketing kick-start to his company with small but valuable things like logo, business card design, tagline, company name, and other psychological things related to marketing. It is basically a civil engineering designing company.

So, I really appreciate your valuable time and information once again. Your guidance is worth gold.
Thanks
