Post subject:  Profile Evaluation HEC Paris - Post all Profile Eval Requests Here

Hello,

Could you please provide an evaluation of my profile. I plan to apply to September 2021 intake.

Background and nationality- Indian female working as a software engineer.

Undergrad Information
Btech in computer science - 80%
XII - 92%
X - 9.4/10

GMAT: retaking in late September. Expecting 700+.

Work experience and leadership
Community and others

I have a total work experience of 2 years and 2 months. At time of intake my workex would be 3 years. I have confirmed my eligibility from hec Paris.
I work as an SAP consultant/software engineer in SAP technology. My company is a european leader - sopra steria. I have worked for client airbus which is also a leader in aviation industry in france.

I would like to know would these experiences add a value to my profile?

Besides, I am scheduled to be designated as senior software engineer in january 2021. I also had a business trip to france which did get cancelled due to covid crises, but nevertheless I have had multiple interactions with my french colleagues on daily basis. So only technically I dont have an international experience.

As for other experiences, I have an NGO experience as a volunteer for distribution of mid day meals in schools. I have taught poor children maths and english for which I was appreciated by one of the top state universities in India. I have also been a rotractor and spread awareness about polio vaccinations among people.

I have also played table tennis throughout my school life. Currently I am a member of my company's sports club.

Post MBA goals
Would like to pursue a career in consulting. I would like to work in France post MBA.

Anything else?
Would anything less than 700 be a deterrant in my application? Keeping in mind thaf I have workex on the lower side ?
Also, in the international experience section of HEC application, am I only supposed to mention physical travels or my virtual international experience as well? Like my interactive sessions via video conferencing with my french colleagues?


Thanks for your time. I appreciate and thank you in advance.

Hello KartikeyaRai,
Saw your profile post at a couple of places, so will respond here collectively. Though you haven't given much details around your WE, it is clear you have a pretty distinct profile. Were you ever in a combat role at CRPF? I am also missing your post-MBA goals.
Irrespective, you have a distinct profile, and if you can write a compelling application (stitching your story together about getting a degree from the UK, working in IT and then working for CRPF), your chances will be good. I think your CRPF experience will outshine most of your other experiences in the application, and working in a difficult region such as Kashmir, you would have many interesting experiences to share.
For both HEC and INSEAD, you should aim for at least the average GMAT score for both schools.
Hope this helps.

Hi ,
Please review my profile for HEC
X-75%
XII-79%
Graduation-3.6 GPA Staffordshire University
2 years of IT Experience
I have been in working in CRPF since last 6 years and have been posted in Kashmir for 3.5 years, where I led a team of 40 personnel. After that I have been working with the Technical Wing of CRPF since last 1.5 years.
I want to know what should be my GMAT score to get into HEC

Hi,

Yes, I was in combat role in CRPF for 3 years when I was in Kashmir. The team I was part of was a special operations unit.
Post MBA I want to move into consulting. In today's world as companies are trying to venture into new markets, I believe my skills could be better utilized in analyzing the geo-political situations of a region from a different perspective and would help in formulating a long term strategy.

Apart from this I am also working on a small startup since last few months.

Hi Saasingh,

Your profile looks nice. Starting with stats, I can see good scores throughout your education. For the GMAT score, if you score a 700+, it will add to your overall candidacy since you have less amount of experience. But even if you score less than 700, it will not be a deal-breaker as long as you present your story well. To comfort you, we have worked with candidates scoring between 600-700 and getting into top programs like LBS. You may want to read a very inspiring story of a candidate. Now, talking about your work-ex, it seems good with a promotion, international experience (yes, you do have it, to understand and present it better, read this), top names associated with your profile and I hope some leadership experience as well. Your ECs and community experience seem good too especially the fact that you still play table-tennis which shows your passion/love towards the game. If you want to capitalize on it, you may express how you will pursue this game ahead in HEC. Also, for your post-MBA goals, "consulting" seems very common and vague. Try to connect it with your prior career and future aspirations and make the, unique, detailed and yours :) .

Overall, I see HEC is a great choice considering your past career and career goals. But you may want to apply to a few other schools as safety and targets to back on. You are welcome to hop on a call with us to brainstorm these schools and your chances there.
Feel free to book a free session with us as per your convenience.

Cheers!

Hi KapilJohn,

From the details that you have provided, it's hard to comment much on your profile. Your undergrad education does not sound very great (with an average GPA). Your ECs from college seems amazing. But they will become quite old at the time you apply. Is there something that you pursue now, beyond work? If not, you should. Just take up any hobby or start doing theater in some NGO etc to spread social messages, that will show your passion towards theatre. However, there seem to be many unknowns in your work experience, like what is the consulting firm? what is your position? are you leading someone? etc etc. Happy to evaluate and guide you further once you provide these details. Feel free to book a free session with us as per your convenience.

Cheers!

Hi,

I'm applying for HEC Paris MBA. My profile:
- Currently 28 years old, 4 years of experience (last 3 in strategy consulting)
- Engineering cum laude graduate (4.0 GPA - top 7% of my university)
- GMAT 680 (Q48 V35) IR 6 - this is my best score!
- Male from Italy

Do I fit? Does number of GMAT attempts matter?
Thanks!

Post subject:  Re: Profile Evaluation HEC Paris - Post all Profile Eval Requests Here

Hello Dinolino,
You have good chances to get into HEC. Though your GMAT and WE is little on the lower side of the average, it is not so low that you cannot compensate for it through your stories of impact at work and your very high GPA. I am missing details of your WE, names of companies you worked with, etc., so won’t be able to comment further. I am also missing details of your Volunteering and EC activities. Make sure that your essays demonstrate, i.e., academic excellence, a strong sense of community and a commitment to diversity.
The AdCom only looks at your highest GMAT score.
Hope this helps.

Hi jpan,

Your undergrad institution and stats are great and if you achieve your target GMAT, you're pretty much sorted for this part. You have not provided details of your work-ex like if you've won any awards or mentored anyone which may be counted as leadership experience, so would like to know more on this. But no promotion in three years does not sound very good. So, I think with more details of your work, I would be able to better assess and guide you. You have been involved in a lot of activities during college which surely will help you. But are you involved in any ECs now? Even if you are not associated with something formal, your hobbies can still be counted with better presentation. So, overall before knowing further details about your work-ex and ECs, it's hard to evaluate your profile for HEC or any other school. Feel free to reach out to us as per your convenience.

Cheers!

Hi Sahilkm,

Your stats seem decent for all these colleges (GRE slightly low for LBS, but your non-engineering background should help). You have worked at ZS, so that is good and seems like you've worked for some good clients and in a good role. Your role at the Economist group seems different and interesting as well. Try to bring leadership and impact from your work. Your ECs seem decent as well. Overall, you have a decent profile and the presentation of your essays and application matter more. Also, shortlisting schools is an extensive process, so before commenting on your chances at them, I need to have a better picture of your profile. If you'd like, we are happy to hop on a call with you to discuss your profile at length and try to guide you better. Feel free to book a free session with us as per your convenience.

You have an amazing profile for both the MIM and Master in International Finance courses. I would say focus on putting together stellar applications than your GMAT score. It shouldn’t be a deterrent for you.

Hi all,

Would be grateful if you could evaluate my profile for HEC Class of 2022. Planning to apply for Sep 21 intake.

I am from India. Graduated from premier engineering college of India (IIT Kanpur). With a 8.3/10 GPA.

GMAT: 750

I have 4+ years of Work experience. Have worked in analytics at Mckinsey & Company and As a consultant in social impact space

Post MBA goals - Post MBA, I would want to work in Consulting (MBB), preferably in social impact practice

International experience is limited - I did a 3 month summer internship at US. Professional conferences in Africa.

How are my chances at HEC for admission and scholarship both?

Post subject:  Re: Profile Evaluation HEC Paris - Post all Profile Eval Requests Here

Hello amandg,
You have a very good profile, with very strong chances of both admissions and scholarship. Your WE at McKinsey adds to your profile. Having worked as a social impact consultant, your post-MBA goals make a lot of sense; however, the chronology of your experience will also matter here. What you would now need to do is present a very compelling case for your goals through the essays, and demonstrate the impact you have created in the past, and leadership examples.
I am missing details of your EC and volunteering here. Examples of good EC are those where you have been able to utilize skills learnt from your WE and apply them for the larger benefit of the community.
You may also want to consider Dalberg other than MBB if you are interested in social impact and INSEAD for your MBA.

amandg hi,
Shimri from ARINGO here.
We have worked with many Indian candidates on HEC and I think your profile is one of the strongest, yet, I am still missing some info on your profile.
I don't know your gender, did you work for 4 years at Mckinsey or less? Why do you need an MBA to work at an MBB (if you have already worked there?) any managerial experience? any international experience?

All in all, sounds like you have a solid profile! for any European school (why only HEC?).

Happy to help further with a detailed review and perhaps work together on some amazing apps if you send me your CV and any other info to Shimriw@ARINGO.com

GOOD LUCK!

Post subject:  Re: Profile Evaluation HEC Paris - Post all Profile Eval Requests Here

Hello,

I wanted to share my profile and get a realistic review.

Background: Male: 31 years old, Indian residing in Poland

Education: Btech in Electronics and Telecommunication from the University of Pune (not so renowned college) with distinction (>67%) through-out.

Work experience: 9+ years in the Automotive industry (worked with 3 multi-national companies) testing various products related to Safety, and quality. Have worked in 3 continents India (the majority of the time), US (1.5 yrs), and Bulgaria, EU (~1.5 months). I led a team of close to 10 engineers and helped set up a team in the US during my time.
Quit my job last year and relocated to Poland with my wife who has been working here for the past 3 years. This relocation gave me time for some self-reflection and eventually I decided to start my own start-up which is pretty much on the same lines as my career i.e. providing test solutions and services to automotive industries. Have been working on this for close to 7 months now and very recently founded the company with few other co-founders.

Extracurricular activities:- Jack of all trades, master of none. I have been heavily involved in various sports such as Football, Cricket, Table Tennis, Snooker, Volleyball, Basketball in college as well as in my whole career. Have captained and represented teams in various events that have taken place.

GMAT: 720 (Q50, V38, IR2, AWA 5) -> I received IR 8 in my last 2 attempts. So planning to leverage that in the additional component of the essay (Would that be a good plan? Would college consider it?)

Schools: LBS, INSEAD, Judge, HEC, Said, IESE --> in that order

Goal of MBA:
Plan A- To get a good grasp on Entrepreneurship and go on and become a serial entrepreneur.
Plan B- To get a good consulting job for an Automotive client

Why MBA: Having worked for 9 years in corporate industry and an year in my own start-up, I feel I have a knack for Entrepreneurship though there are various gaps in my knowledge to reach my goals such as the various strategies that can be applied to a problem set, how to grasp hold of customers, Negotation skills etc. I believe an MBA could help me fill these gaps and make me a better entrepreneur who can look at a problem from various angles.

Why in Eu :- First off, European schools have a diversity of >90% international students. One of the most important selection criteria for me. Secondly, given my age, I feel a short program (1-1.5 yrs) is best for my needs. Having worked in various roles, I have a feel for the hard-work that the intense course of 1 year needs. Moreover, having worked in US and India, I find European work culture the best. My wife has been working here for quite sometime as well. So all in all Eu suits best for me.

LORs:-
Have a primary LOR from my manager during my time in the US.
Looking to get one more LOR from my very recent manager.


Let me know if any other information is needed.

Post subject:  Re: Profile Evaluation HEC Paris - Post all Profile Eval Requests Here

Hello,

I am an Indian male applicant with a GMAT score of 700.
Work Experience: 2 years as an IT consultant, 1 year as a marketing manager in my family business.
Class X: 9.4
Class XII: 87%
Electrical & Electronics Engineering: 7.87

My co-curricular is also pretty strong as I've been playing guitar since 15 years and currently have 2 singles & an album released on all digital platforms with my band.

I would really request someone to evaluate my profile and advise me accordingly. I applied to HEC this year in May for Sept'20 intake but got rejected. Should I go for early deadlines for Sep'21 or should I wait?

Any help would be great. Thanks!
