Hello I'm a aspirant of GMAT and would like to take GMAT 2015. I'm currently in my 4th year B.Tech, 7th semester. What are my chances as a fresher getting into a premium b-school around the globe. Say i have scored 720 or a very very good score to qualify into one of the top 20???  I'm awaiting replies.

Hi Anmol, most top business schools globally have a 3 year minimum work exp. requirement and in fact most of these schools have a 5 year work exp. average. Since you have no work experience, you are looking at a Masters in International Mgt or Business (MIM / MIB) which is designed for fresh graduates. For me to tell you if you can get into the top 20 schools for the MIM / MIB , I will need your 10th, 12th, up to Bach marks along with extracurricular activities. I hope this helps. Thank you

Armaan.

Hi Anmol,

I hope you're doing well!

You should have 3+ years of experience to apply for MBA. But for your profile you can go for some programs like fresher's, seniors and others. Please visit the below links:

1. MBA Programs for College Seniors http://goo.gl/qSH36z

2. MBA fresher program http://goo.gl/hhnv2h

3. MEM Programs http://goo.gl/Ncqy5M

Hope this helps you.

Kate: The recent decline in numbers of the Tennessee warbler, a North American songbird that migrates each fall to coffee plantations in South America, is due to the elimination of dense tree cover that formerly was a feature of most South American coffee plantations.

Scott: The population of the spruce budworm, the warbler's favourite prey in North America, has been dropping. This is a more likely explanation of the warbler's decline.

Which of the following, if true, most seriously calls Scott's hypothesis into question?

Officials at the United States Mint believe that the Sacagawea dollar coin will be used more as a substitute for four quarters rather than for the dollar bill because its weight, only 8.1 grams, is far less than four quarters, which weigh 5.67 grams each.

I am currently doing btech in Industrial engineering and managment. I want to pursue an mtech in mechanical engineering abroad. I have read not all but a part of the mechanical course. Do I need to read all the remaining unread portion as well. If yes then what is the easiest way to do that? Besides what should be the best choice as book for gre test prep - Kaplan, Barron or Princeton Review.

Hi Anish,

I would like clarity on whether you have read the Mechanical courses within the current program or not? In case yes then you need to confirm with the universities before submission of applications as it is the case of change of field.

Anish Ray @ray.anish94

Well actually my course deals with close to 40% of the current mechanical course the ground basics essentially, like basic thermodyanamics, some machine design, theory of machines, materials, and some manufacturing. We essentially had courses parrallel to what the mechanical guys were doing for the first 2 years, after that we had core iem subjects like operations research, ergonomics, method study, probability, DBMS and stuff. So basically i am not aware of the stuff that those guys learnt in 3rd and 4th year. But I still wish to pursue masters in mechanical what would you suggest? if yes could you please answer my other questions as well?

Hi,

I am going to apply to ISB in the coming admission cycle starting Sep'2015. I wrote GMAT last year and got a score of 740 (Q49, V41, IR8 and AWA 5). As of today I have 11.5 years of experience in a product based IT company and I am working as a Principal Software Engineer. My post-MBA goal is to get into product management.

I would like to get advice from all the gurus on how and what shall I prepare, starting today, so that my chances of getting admitted in ISB will improve.

Many thanks for your help in advance.

MBA Decoder @mba-help 1,666

Hi @cooljishi, there is a lot more we need to know about your profile to tell you "what to take care of"- we first need to understand what you already have (and where you lack). 

Share details about your work experience (top achievements included), your extra curricular activities and career goals after you complete the MBA. 

You have a broad range of b-schools in your list, which is a good thing. We will need to know the questions above to understand your fit with them.

A range of 680-730 is too big- either side of the range can be a game changer.

Hi, your profile seems to be good dear. But would like to bring to your notice that NUS, NTU, Booth and HEC Paris will be bit competitive as they generally accept applications with 5 years of experience on an average. I would rather suggest you to go for a 2 year program and apply to b schools like Wisconsin Madison, Kelley etc. Visit our Website for more info: http://www.manyagroup.com/

Hi All,

Please confirm how the GMAT cutoff score varies for below colleges in R1 and R2 application.

Is the chance of getting selected with a comparative low GMAT in R1 window higher than in R2 window? FYI:  R1 results are shared before R2 results.

Hi Tarun
I am qualified to speak about the training centre in Mumbai as i have been studying there since august last year. The system of education here is quite unconventional i.e application oriented, the professors teaching us are consultants or professionals working as department heads or higher. We share most of our lecturers with JBIMS, NMIMS, Welingkar's and SP Jain. The course begins generally in august and completes in 18 months.
However to gain admission one has to think at a written test (CET level), face a grilling GD panel and demonstrate qualities for potential employment at personal interviews conducted by German companies. Only students selected by a company for internship and subsequent employment are admitted.
Having said that, you should try and attempt the admission process as i know of no other institute that would conduct interviews with multiple German companies.
The last date for form submission is 29th april.


Please remember that my views are only on the Mumbai centre.

A certain panel is to be composed of exactly three women and exactly two men, chosen from x women and y men. How many different panels can be formed with these constraints?

(1) If two more women were available for selection, exactly 56 different groups of three women could be selected.

(2) x = y + 1

In a 4 person race, medals are awarded to the fastest 3 runners. The first-place runner receives a gold medal, the second-place runner receives a silver medal, and the third-place runner receives a bronze medal. In the event of a tie, the tied runners receive the same color medal. (For example, if there is a two-way tie for firstplace, the top two runners receive gold medals, the next-fastest runner receives a silver medal, and no bronze medal is awarded). Assuming that exactly three medals are awarded, and that the three medal winners stand together with their medals to form a victory circle, how many different victory circles are possible?
