Scott Neslin is a fantastic teacher. He gets so excited and animated as he teaches, he gets so involved in the topic that's being discussed, and he explains the most complicated concepts so lucidly, that the energy levels in the class simply touch the stratosphere!

He is world's leading researcher in all things marketing with specific interests spanning database marketing and customer relationship management from a retail perspective. Every chance I get, I'd like to highlight the fact that at Tuck, the students learn directly from thought leaders and get immersed in their research. That said, here's an interview with Scott Neslin himself.

Yes... Results will come out on 14th... You need not worry about that... From what I`ve heard, this entire process seems very structured and once the interviews are done, it usually doesnt take much time to process further...

Hi guys,

I'm new here and have been browsing GMAT threads for some time. From other posts what i have understood is leaving job and giving GMAT is a strict 'no' 'no' ! I had a decent profile but i guess out of job for past 2 years made my profile weak. Still i leave it to you - the experts, the aspirants who are in this GMAT business, to have the final say. Here's my profile. Please recommend if i should go ahead with GMAT test and try my luck at B-schools -

10th standard - 87%

12th standard - 80%

age - 30yr 

Qualification - BE in IT with 73% and MS from BITS Pilani with 75%

Experience - 6 yr in two reputed software companies as programmer. Left job in 2013 to prepare for civil service.

I have the doubts -

1. Considering the 'weakness' of my profile, would it be a wise idea to try my luck at ISB Hyderabad? What are the chances and how can i make it possible?

2. To apply in Indian universities, what is the best time to write GMAT ? I started preparing Manhattan books, will that suffice or should i follow some other material too ?

You left the job to prepare for civil services and now you wish to pursue an MBA? How do you explain the connect? Clarity of goals would be very important when talking about your decision to do an MBA.

@boolean 1

Thanks for the reply.

Civil service is the management in disguise. Only difference is that civil servants are not supposed to be always profit oriented ; rather they take a holistic view of the society and prioritise inclusive development. Other than the intent, both job includes public administration, management of human resource and many other similar things. So if i say, i wanted to change my profile to a management role, would that be convincing ?

[real scenario]exhausted age/attempt in civil service exam and still reluctant to go back to the programmer job  :)

ivyctor 2010 @ivyctor2010 878

OK, even if you did leave your job, the Adcom would be keen to know how have you used your valuable time? ( apart from studying). Also, since you have 6 years of experience, you can also try your luck at the IIMs, SP Jain etc. To discuss more about your profile and preparation. suggest you get in touch with us through the PM button or drop a mail at info@ivyctor.com

Although I can't comment on the final list of Essay topics in 2015, these topics more or less should remain same as those of this year's.

The number of articles concerning the use of sensatorium dummies in crash testing published last year in consumer magazines was considerably lower relative to prior years. No longer manufactured, these dummies can be severely damaged in crash tests and many of the sensatorium dummies damaged two years ago are still awaiting necessary repairs. It is clear, therefore, that the lower number of consumer magazine articles published last year about sensatorium dummies was due to the decline in their availability for use.


Which of the following, if true, most seriously weakens the news reporter's argument?

Generally, there is no minimum GMAT score requirement for MBA programs. You can  refer to average GMAT score of the current class to get some idea and try to score above/around that number. Last date for applying should be available on NUS's website.
