Wish you all the best for your GMAT on the 8th. As you must have heard many times before the GMAT score is just one of the parameters used by top schools to evaluate a candidate. So if you get a GMAT score of 650 do not be disheartened and work hard on your essays. You may be ambitious and applyapply even to ISB. To be more reasonable you can target Great Lakes in India and Queen's in Canada. Wish you all the best. Llewellyn DeSouza - Hash MBA Consulting.

Testing to Operations to Banking. 3 years 3 jobs... Wow. I think you will need to do a lot of explaining. Be ready n focus on your GMAT now. 730 is a good target. If you cannot go beyond this at least try and get as close to it as possible. Also it would help if you can tell us where do you want to go after your MBA. Wish you all the best n remember your 'Like' enhances my Karma. TiA Llewellyn DeSouza

Hi Udbhav,

I hope you're doing well!

Good to know that you are taking definitive steps towards an MBA.
Suggest you to take mock test for GMAT and check your self, what kind of score you're getting. If you're getting above 600 then go head for online classes or books materials.
Now, coming to your profile you have a decent profile. You should aim for at least 720+ to apply for your preferred B-School. ISB & INSEAD is good school for you, but NUS is bit complicated. Reason because acceptance rate of NUS is very low for Indian candidates. It is just 10%.

Best of luck for your GMAT.

Cheers!

Hola everyone! I need some guidance by the experts

I am aspiring candidate looking to take an admit in 2017. Can someone please review my profile and help me with the pointers post my profile:

In chronological order

Male, 27 years

10th: 75% (ICSE)

12th: 55% (I know its poor, but I was not academically sound till about 2 years later)

Engineering: 64% - 1st class (Computer Science, Pune University, Top college of Pune)

MBA (yes, I already have an MBA): 70% (A decent score)

Extracuriculars: Uptill Engineering, nothing noteworthy. However, In my MBA:

- Was the President of my marketing club

- Pioneered and drove the marketing magazine for the college

- Headed various event and won many accolades for the same

- Won a couple of business case study events too

Work-ex: 3.5 years in consumer insights post my MBA (with global, reputed firms). I have been client consulting in the research domain for 3 years with 6 months spent so far on the client side. 

Work ex achievement:

- Youngest joinee to have given a client presentation

- Rank 1 in a particular research framework for the organisation

- Can get multiple strong recommendations right from MD, EDs in the firm for my exemplary work 

Reason for 2nd MBA

There are 3 reasons largely:

1) I am looking to shift my career to consulting with top firms (Mckinsey, Bain)

2) Looking to make a global career

3) Not happy with the current career progress. It is too slow for my liking

Colleges Aiming for (in order of preference):

- INSEAD

- LBS

- ISB

- One of the 3 IIMs (A/B/C)

I realise my profile may come accross as peculiar (or is it just a figment of my imagination?)

I need guidance on the below

1) What are my chances (I am yet to give the GMAT)

2) What additional do I need to do in the 1.5 odd years I have to further strenghten my candidature

3) Will be glad if I can have a F2F interaction as well with someone to discuss these things. If anyone can guide me on that, will be great!

Thanks in anticipation!

Looking for admit in 2017. Attempts are on to diversify and to add further arsenal to my portfolio. GMAT likely to give mid next year.

@vampire26 I think that's a good decision. If you are going to take that step, be true to that. I would encourage you to take initiatives (and not just wait for promotions or wait for workplace to give you opportunities) and show how you took onus during your application. All the best.

@PagalGuru You should first align on your post-MBA career goal (both short-term and long-term). If you prepare a good application, you can target 25-40 global b-schools. Happy to help!

Llewellyn DeSouza @Llewellyn75 7,626

IIM A B C L K, XLRI, Great Lakes, SP Jain, NMIMS, ISB, etc... Are some of the options you have in INDIA. You must remember that not all these colleges are in the same league but all are within your budget. Also some of these will be very difficult to crack on the basis of your GMAT n academic scores n you may have to depend a lot on your essays n interview performance to get through. Wish you all the best. Llewellyn DeSouza - Hash MBA Consulting

Is there Reservation for OBC in Executive Programs at IIMs ?Please suggest
