Thanks a ton Edson.

Thanks a ton. This really helped.

My next question might seem a bit generic. can you suggest me some extra currics or some thing else that will help me earn some brownie points during my admission. This is because I work for a IT company and the competition from IT would be large compared to any other field.
I want to do something that will make my profile stand out from the rest. Now that i know sports can help me in that, i would like to know the other options as well.

Thanks again.


Does sports have an added advantage for business schools in europe. I have acheived lots in cricket but am not sure if cricket will have weightage when I apply to Bocconi.
I found that the median GMAT score for getting an admit in Bocconi is around 670. What score does the school look for a person with normal profile(like 2 years of work ex from a software company).
Can you also let me know about the Scholarships offered in Bocconi. I read that 3 people from India get full, 80 and 70 pc scholarships.

Thanks in advance for your help and more queries are on the way.
