Hi Vaibhav

You can apply to great lakes with a score of 650+. 

But, looking at your profile, we will suggest you to apply for ISB also - provided you have some extra curriculars in your profile other than your good scores.

Hi, My name is saiteja. I am currently working in TCS. My Current work ex in TCS will be 2 years by this October. Before joining TCS, I worked as an online tutor for US students. But I don't have wrk ex certificate for that. What I have is an informal mail communication showing the amount remitted into my account as my salary. I am also a free lancer writer during my College days. 

I won around 20 prizes in Power point presentations and debates, a couple of them at state level. Participated in almost 50 events in my college. I have certificates for all that. I am an active participant of all the events in my schooling too. Won a few competitions there. I am also an amateur HAM certified by central government. 

My work ex achievements are LOL. Apart from only that I anchored a few events for my project and I am also a farewell SPOC. 

I am a member of Green Peace NGO now along with IGNITE NGO from my college days. I am a key member of the IGNITE committee and organized a state level competition and a meet starring film makers of Telugu Film Industry. I am also an anchor for that event. 

My target colleges are ISB, NUS, HEC, INSEAD. Can you help me with my profile? Am I eligible to these colleges. If so what is my target score in GMAT? I am planning to take CAT simultaneously. My plan is to take GMAT by August 1st week and then to move on to CAT. Is it practically possible?  Please evaluate my profile and help me with my queries.

My Acads: X - 85.33, XII - 91.1, B.Tech (ECE) - 8.32

Hi Saiteja! What is your total workex? With just 2 yrs at TCS (and freelance tutoring before that), it's not going to be easy at the schools u r targeting. A strong GMAT (740+) would remain critical. No problem with taking CAT after GMAT but you need good time in hand to work on your application essays. INSEAD itself has 8 essays and easily takes a month. The time required to work on your applications has to be accounted for as well. All the Best! 'ISBmantra / EssaySunday Consulting'

Hi Saiteja

Your profile looks good but you will have to compliment it with a high GMAT Score (at least a 720) to make your profile more lucrative.

Hi Anurag, @REVEALED 

Can you talk a little more about your work experience? Exactly what have you done at work? Why do you want an MBA and what do you intend doing after the MBA?

Thanks,

Hi @REVEALED ! Several students with teaching experience make it to ISB every year. They key is to connect the dots well. Even with a good GMAT it will remain crucial for u to explain why u need an MBA and how you will contribute to the class. I would like to assume that u are paid well at Resonance, and any other school in India may not be able to match your current salary level. All the Best! 'ISBmantra / EssaySunday Consulting'

Hi

For executive MBA, it is better to go with GMAT as most of the Indian Schools accept the GMAT for executive MBA. Also, GMAT opens the doors for international MBAs. 

Hi, I am planning to give GMAT in June/July this year. Need guidance in choosing the test center in Delhi. Among the 2 options in Delhi, Yusuf Sarai and Dwarka, which is better? Is it true that Dwarka center has some noise issues?

Hi,

I am currently working as a BI developer in Ernst & Young. I am planning to take MS in Business Analytics from a US university.

Please find below my profile,

Class 10 - 92.8 %

Class 12 - 90.6 %

B.Tech Mechanical Engineering - CGPA 6.94

Total Work Experience - 16 months

I am a bit worried about my low CGPA for B.tech. Will I be able to make it to a to a top university if I manage to do well in GRE/GMAT despite of this low CGPA?

HI Rahul, You have to work with what you have got! A low GPA can be  partially overcome with other aspects:

1. High GRE/GMAT

2. impressive career graph

3. very clear career goals. 

Don't limit your options at this stage because of a low GPA. Work hard over the coming months to improve those aspects of your profile that are still in your control, which is the aptitude test and the work experience (take more initiatives at work). 

When you are finally applying, apply to a few safe colleges as well.

I would advise seriously not to bog yourself down with academic score. I think you are going in the right direction with the work ex. probably a 3 year work exp. would be a good time to apply. If you've done some any BI/Analytics type projects/freelance consulting outside of work that would add a significant value. Score will definitely be driving factor especially with MS type degrees and may overcome some of the low GPA questions admissions officers may have. 

Hello friends, which among following institutes is best in Bangalore?

EducationAisle,Crackverbal, Manya-Princeton Review, Ivy-Gmat (Top-one-percent)

I believe I need to work more on Quant as compared to Verbal. But again, verbal requires improvement too. Please suggest me best among above based on your experience.

If you think any other institute could be even better, please name it. Thank you.

Hi Vipin

We have heard great reviews about Crackverbal but we will strongly suggest to go ahead and take demo classes at a few and then decide.
