Hi there,

Your profile is good but you need a wow factor for the M7 schools you're targeting. Your GMAT score is awesome. Your work ex is a bit on the lower side but still good. Undergrad GPA is good too. Your international education also helps. But adcoms look for your accomplishments and leadership experience. You need to display leadership and an upward trajectory in your career. Most schools are also interested in your community involvement. Everyone is involved during their undergrad but what are you doing right now? I hope this helps.

Best,

Hi,
Just seeing this today- I hope R1 went well- but if not- there is still time to focus on Round 2 and put in solid applications. How did it go so far?

I would also suggest that you think more broadly about how you have led and been engaged in all areas of your life since college- are you leading a firm wide activity? Organizing events that build the culture? Think creatively about how you can show leadership even if you lack lots of "official" club roles now- and also keep thinking about how you are giving back. If you do want to get more feedback, we encourage you to reach out for a free consult at this link:
re you still waiting to hear from adcom after your Round 1 application was submitted?
No interview, but no denial? Don't know where you stand? If so, read these tips and best wishes on Round 2 and hearing good news in the future!

Lots of potential here, as already stated, but missing the wow factor for now. Therefore it would help if you could elaborate on your post MBA goal, why you’ve chosen the specific schools you mentioned, if there is anything in your background that could help you stand out from the crowd as well as any measurable, impressive achievements during your work experience or your extra curricular activities.

If you are not sure what adcoms are looking for when it comes to this, the ARINGO team would be more than happy to help you come up with some ideas of course, so if so, feel free to be in touch.

But without some “secret sauce”, so to speak, that helps differentiate you from other Indian applicants I am not super optimistic about your chances, so you really do need to find something unique to focus on in your applications.

Good luck!
