I took my GRE and scored 330 (160 in VA, 170 in QA).

I would like to start preparing applications for an MiM programme in HEC, London Business School, ESSEC and a few others.

I completed my 4 year baccalaureate course in Engineering (Electronics & Communication) in 2017. I have a GPA of 8.22 out of 10.
Since then, I did a one-year internship in a friend's startup, where I could make a major impact. I built the entire business plan and the website and the sorts. I also wanted to find out if I could ever be good for an intelligence agency in my country. (It is the espionage system for internal securities, lets just say. I can't take names.) So I tried for the exam and I am 90% through. I wanted a feather on my cap, however, it is not something I can ever mention on my SOP or the essays during my application (for obvious reasons), nor do I seek to pursue a career in that as of now.

Presently I am looking for a job where I can work for one year, till I leave for a university.

When it comes to extra-curricular activities, I have been a performing artist in recitation, plays, theater etc for 11 years. I also volunteered in an NGO, to teach, last year. I also play the Ukulele and the guitar. I will also start taking up French classes from next week. I also took part in entrepreneurship programmes in college, and I also have a certificate from the United Nations, working on "Go Green" campaigns.

My problem is, I do not have a substantial corporate work experience since I graduated, last year July. I did have a job offer from campus placements, but I did not take it up when the time came for me to join.

I wanted to know my chances, in the aforementioned colleges. And also, whether I can improve my profile in the next two months.

Hello RAJDEEP1995

You certainly seem to have a lot going for you.
Strong extracurricular (will add diversity) and interesting work ex.
For MiM you don't necessarily need full time work ex (profile and academic potential matters more).
You stand a fighint chance if you put together a strong written application.
There is a lot that you can do in the next 2 months to improve your profile.
However, if you take activities just for the sake of an MiM the admissions committee will be able to see through it (especially because of the duration of the said activity)
If I were you I would spend my energy first on building a strong application, as that itself can take 4-8 weeks (and you already have a decent profile)
Should you feel the need to discuss your profile in detail, feel free to reach out.

Dear Rajdeep

Thanks for posting. Congratulations on your GRE score - it is quite strong and will play a major factor in your success. Here is our advice:
- MiM programs don't really rely on work experience as a major factor, and are quite ok with internship experience as well. You can mention this experience, although you might want to mask key details such as client names. You can also cover details on the parts you worked on, and it will still count as professional experience, even though you are not continuing in that role or industry.
- Be aware of admissions requirements for top MiM programs. For example, the LBS MiM does not accept applications from candidates with 2+ years of experience at the point of joining. The other choices you have are fine (HEC and ESSEC).
- Your academics are quite good and your ECA are outstanding. No worries there at all - they will be definite assets.
- At this point, there is not too much that you can do to improve your profile. Use this time to get into another role, as not being employed at the point of application can be a slight negative, even for MiM programs.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.
