Ask a Consultant! - GMAT/GRE Only

The GMAT section's been growing rapidly over the past few years but I'm sure you already know that. Unfortunately, it's becoming tougher for individual contributors to keep pace. Fortunately, a lot of consultants have been coming up to help! So as...

HI

Based on your current profile, try to get atleast 320 in GRE which will compensate your undergraduate degree to some extent. Your 17 back papers will put at a competitive stage. Try to book a date for GRE within October if possible. Because application for the Fall 2016 intake has already been started. \

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!

Given the competition, you'll be better off taking some professional classes. Also, the school names are not available for review. thanks

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!

@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.

@vampire26 

The best thing that you can add in your profile is your career progression, try to take additional responsibilities at the workplace, take initiative outside your KRA and give your best efforts to the job. If you can get the international exposure, that's even better. Also, be involved with any cause you feel for, do your bit for the society. In an MBA application, your overall profile is considered. The more diverse it would be, more are the chances that you would be selected.

@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!

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

Yes @preethiignatius , you can give them throughout the year

Planning to give GMAT in February 2016. Wish to start right away. Quite confused about how to start and where to start from.

Possible for someone to share a sort of study plan they followed for 5-6 months? Along side some books which are a must-have.

Thanks in advance!

The Best test series for GMAT are

1) GMAT PREP

2) Manhattan Prep GMAT

3) GMAT CLUB

4) Kaplan

5) Veritas

6) 800 score or any other are equally good or bad..

I hope this helps!

The two free tests from GMAC are the most representative of the actual Gmat exam. You can uninstall and re-install the thing to get more questions. You can also buy 2 more additional tests from GMAC.

Manhattan comes with 6 tests which are closest to the real exam after the ones from Gmac. The quant is difficult in comparison with the real exam, but it prepares you for the best. You can try this for quant. For verbal rely only on the official tests.

GmatClub too offers mock tests that are very good for Quant preparation. 

All the best!
