Want to touch the sky with glory 

Hi gurus and mahagurus,

I want to know from anybody, how would ISB look at someone who has a prior MBA and a work experience of more than 7 years.

Here is my situation:

Education:

Xth = 75.4% with school topper in Mathematics

XIIth = 80.0% School and north east reiognal topper

BE (Electronics) = 64.5% from The University of Pune

1 year gap for MBA prep/searching for a job

MBA (Marketing and Finance) = 3.7 out of 5.0 "A" from Symbiosis, Pune

Total work experience of 6+ years in various field (IT sales, Automotive consulting and training, Sales Management), by 2016 i will be having more than 7 years of work experience

Currently working with World's largest car manufacturer

Extra curricular = Nothing much, full time member of IEEE College chapter during engg., and Placement Brochure presentation team and an NGO during MBA college. Have done bit of a trekking with my trekking group

During job I have worked on various functions like Kaizen, Dealer Management, Sales etc

Currently working with one MBA friend of mine on a business plan related to automobile sector

From Extra curricular I am very weak I guess as I don't have much in my CV to show

Any clue, How would the adcom look at it?

Every batch have many people going for their second MBA.

Its just that you should be able to justify why you need the second MBA!

@ritumittal Hi Ritu, even I am sailing the same boat. Did an MBA from a tier - 2 college. Now, want to do MBA one more time. Just came across this group. I was just wondering if you have got any information regarding the same.

was a silent spectator on PG for long, trying to understand whether I should go for second MBA or not. Being from a mediocre place, school, eng. college, MBA institute, with a mediocre career, and mediocre life I can see a mediocre future ahead. But that's not me, I have a fauji blood, and it say...

Hi all. To be honest mixed feelings joining this group. On the one hand disappointed at not clearing this yr, but also trying to be positive for the next. Reminding myself - aaall is welll !

@mandyrhtdm, I can understand the feeling. I have faced it long time back when I had almost got my dream (Got selected for NDA - Airforce cadet) but missed it (accident 1 month before joining, ligament tear - permanent medically unfit)...the pain is still there. I would have been a fighter pilot (probably) by now...but life has different plans....it's iffy....the pain is still there but that's what driving me to do something different, something really crazy, some thing which gives me a kick; which I can be proud of and feel satisfied.

I am a blogger; I also follow many blogs. Few months ago I just came across a blog of Capt. (retd) Rajat Mishra : it was very inspiring and will definitely motivate all of us.

I suggest everybody to go through this blog if you have some free time:

First of all, try and gauge where you stand and the best way to do that is to take a mock. You should straightway register and download GMATPrep for free . It has two mocks (Mock 1 and Mock2).

Analyze the mock and understand your requirement from the coaching class.

Then take a demo and see if it satisfies your requirement. 

Free Mocks Please refer to :

Our spirit is the only thing they can't take away from us. Lets try to understand what went wrong. Those who made it conveyed something which we didn't .

You are right Mandeep (philosophically), as Rocky Balboa told his son, it's not about how hard you hit, it's about how hard you get hit, and keep moving forward....

I can understand the pain of coming so close to your dreams and then "catch dropped"...I have experienced it before...

It's time to analyse ourselves critically and then improvise...if you are trying one more time, my best wishes for you, next time you will crack and will be on the other side of the campus walls....
