Hi ravi1608,

Thanks for sharing your details.

You have a fine GMAT score and the same coupled with professional experience that includes international exposure will add the positive element to your profile :) Having said this, the extra-curriculars are not exceptional and there is no mention of your leadership experience at work. Nonetheless, we suggest that you do apply and spend a fair bit of time working on a set of essays that are truly reflective of your potential and showcase a strong sync between your existing professional experience and future goals. A lot will indeed depend on this.

Should you need to discuss your profile in greater detail, please get in touch with us for a free profile evaluation. :)

All the best! :)

Hi ravi1608,

thank you for sharing your profile.

Your GMAT score is about 20 points above INSEAD's average. It is true that the number of Indian applicants is really high, but with 20 points above average, I would leverage other parts of your profile to set you apart from the rest of Indian applicants.

You have a successful career with 3 promotions so far and with international exposure. You have experience managing multi-cultural teams, and your extra-curricular experience working at the NGO is quite interesting.

Make sure you leverage this to put together a kick-ass application. Also, do not forget to explain in detail your career goals and why you need an MBA.

For a more detailed discussion about your chances of admission, feel free to PM me or send me an email directly at alex@ruizlee.es. If you could also attach your resume, that would be really helpful ;)

I hope this helps.

Good luck!

Hi dahiyar,

Thanks for writing in.

First things first, you have a fine pedigree and relevant leadership experience and achievements on the professional front. The GMAT score, too, seems good (if not on the higher side considering expectation are always higher for Indian candidates). Each of these aspects will add a positive dimension to your profile and will be duly acknowledged by the Committee.

Having said the above, a lot depends on how well your story is tied up in your essays, particularly the portion, wherein you explain your need for a second MBA (something that the Ad Com needs a lot of convincing on). Besides, also ensure that your career goals flow seamlessly and you are able to effectively articulate each of your achievements and the skill-set you have garnered along the way.

If you are able to take care of the above, we are certain that you will have a good chance :) Feel free to reach out in case you require any assistance or guidance.

All the best!

Hi, I'd be grateful for a profile evaluation! Any advice is welcome!

Background:
American, White, Male
Age 28
GMAT 700
Native English and C1 Level Spanish

Education: Brigham Young University, BS and MS in Accountancy (GPA 3.6); while there I studied abroad in Europe and had the equivalent of a minor in Spanish (due to some technicalities, I wasn't allowed to get this minor because I tested so far advanced in Spanish)

Work Experience (3.5 years):
Job 1 (Ernst and Young) - Nominated by firm leaders to do a rotation within EY due to my high performance compared to 1,000s of other same-level peers. Relocated from Atlanta to NYC for first year of rotation where I became a go-to expert on Venezuela. I consulted US companies with operations in Venezuela matters, which required extensive work with the Venezuela office. I consulted teams from Europe, Africa and Asia. Among fellow peers in same rotation, I was chosen by senior VPs at EY to work on internal consulting project to improve operations and research feasibility of new revenue lines. I received the highest rating possible for those at my level. The second year of my rotation was within audit in Nashville. I worked with teams in London and Japan while there.

Job 2 (Connor Group Global Consulting) - Promoted to senior consultant. I've worked extensively with clients in Ireland, Belgium, Australia and India in addition to clients across the US to provide consulting. I regularly perform duties of a manager or above; for example, I was asked to lead meetings and consult with client while senior manager was away on vacation. I'm also very involved in business development, reaching out to new potential clients, organizing professional events or developing strategic partnerships.

Job 3 (RevenueHub/IPOHub) - I author articles to explain accounting simply to those who need it for one site (RevenueHub), and I write articles to give advice to startups (IPOHub). I was promoted to editor after one year (oversee 2-3 employees). Three years after, I was promoted an adviser to the organization (oversee 4-6 employees), where I've developed partnerships and organized events, which has lead to increased engagement in the sites.

Job 4 (Mohawk FinOps) - I've regularly provided freelance consulting in addition to my day job. Highlights of my experience include consulting on successful Initial Coin Offerings, providing market feasibility research to companies, to even helping a Hall of Fame-caliber songwriter establishing an investment business.

Extracurricular/Other:
-I founded a non-profit where I connect small charities to consultants willing to work pro bono. I've done extensive volunteering to many projects on my own. I've overseen a number of volunteers in my role.
-I volunteer for an organization that provides pro bono consulting to startups as a way to help them have a higher social impact.
-I emcee events and perform stand-up comedy. I did a lot more stand-up in college, but I still do it.
-I lived 2 years in Uruguay and Argentina between freshman and sophomore year of college (Mormon mission, which also explains the gap between my age and work experience)

MBA Goals: To broaden my experience in consulting so I can do more management consulting with a global focus. The MBA will provide an education and pedigree that will allow me to better brand myself myself as a global consultant. Long term, I'd like to have my own consulting practice that helps social entrepreneurs/businesses compete on a global stage and helps global businesses have social impact programs

Hi anotherformercpa,

thank you for sharing your profile.

Your profile is quite interesting and with potential to get admitted to INSEAD.

We can definitely see that you have international experience and curiosity, especially for Latin America. This will give you an edge as one of INSEAD's admissions criteria is International Motivation.

Your extra-curricular and extra-professional activities are quite interesting too.

In order to conduct a more detailed assessment, it would be helpful to know the dates of each of your professional experiences.

Also, it would be good to have the split Q/V of your GMAT.

You mentioned your post-MBA goal is management consulting with a global focus. However, do you have an specific post-MBA geography in mind?

Feel free to PM me or email me your CV at alex@ruizlee.es for a complete and detailed evaluation of your profile and candidacy for INSEAD.

Good luck!
Alex

Thanks alexruizlee I appreciate you review!

My split is Q46/V40. And the dates for each job are as follows:

Job 2 with Connor Group is May 2017 to present

Job 3 with writing/editing is June 2014 to present

Job 4 with my freelance consulting is July 2017 to present

I’d like to do consulting with a base in Western Europe after graduation, preferably in the UK in London.

Hi anotherformercpa,

thank you for sharing more detail about your profile.

As you may know, INSEAD recommends to hit at least 70th-75th percentile for both the Quant and Verbal sections. Your Verbal score is good and meets this criteria, but your Quant score is still a bit low. This is not a total deal breaker, but a few points more on your Quant will definitely help your candidacy. However, if retaking the GMAT is not an option, make sure to highlight on your application examples where you exhibited outstanding quantitative skills.

Job 3 most likely will be counted as a part-time job (INSEAD has a separate section for this), therefore your full-time experience will be considered from July 2015. Unless you explain you started full-time at Job 3 and transitioned to part-time after starting at Job 1. This is important in order to calculate months of full-time work experience in the application.

Your target geography post-MBA (Western Europe) makes INSEAD a clear choice to do your MBA.

If you have more questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at alex@ruizlee.es. And again, feel free to email me your CV for a complete and detailed evaluation of your profile and candidacy for INSEAD.

Good luck!
Alex
