HBS 2+2 Profile evaluation

Post Wed May 23, 2012 2:38 pm
Hello Sir/Ma'am...i would be obliged if you could help with my profile evaluation.


I wanted some advice on my profile and my chances to these big b schools as I plan to apply to HBS 2+2, IESE-YTP and maybe Stanford GBS with a 2 year deferral option....I recently applied to ISB-YLP program and have been shortlisted for stage 2...my GMAT is due for august.

I am a 21 year old female B.Tech student (EC branch) currently in 3rd year from a regional private engineering college in India.

Academics--

1. 10th-92%
2. 12th-88%
3. b.tech-69% (till 5th sem)
4. B.A in Eco.h-thru open school (distance learning)

Internships--

1. interned at one of the best b schools of India (IIM B-Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore) under a professor (marketing)-6 weeks
2. interned at an MNC in digital watch manufacturing.(2 months)
3. interned at an MNC and worked on the project Electro Static devices.(1 month)

Extracurricular--

1. Trained classical dancer and graduate in it...have performed at various stage shows and now work as a dance instructor at one of the dance studios (founded by me and a friend)

2. Community Service-
-HEAD for planning and management at JGW'12 a national social service awareness campaign.
-Placement Volunteer/ Anchor at a Deaf Society-i work for the successful employment training and
interviews with the company HR.
-ROTARY CLUB-Head Co-coordinator for event planning and execution-have conducted campaigns and drives like blood donation,clothes donation,saving girl child...etc
-Recently started working with an NGO as a teacher to primary kids (I spend 2 hrs every weekend to teach them basic English and Maths)

3. Technical College Club-Head for Student Affairs -have conducted many robotics workshop at college level.
4. Volunteer at many events like F1 grand prix and pollution rallies
5. Anchor at college fest and conducted the departmental farewell '11 and '12
6. Aloha mental Arithmetic (Completed till level 3)-won national award merit certificate when I was at school and used to write regularly for the school magazine(articles,notes,stories..etc)
7. Selected by Ericsson for their empower program...which will lead to an on campus placement later.

I am hopeful that my final year project (topic:Solar Cell-increasing productivity) will get published in one of the national journals... or most probably IEEE.

Do I stand a chance among the other applicants who have a stellar profile and excellent graduation GPA!!

Thanks for your valuable time addressing my query..!

Well, the competition is tough! But you do have a really full profile which is awesome. The grades could be better, and will make things a bit tough (which is why it is SOOOO important that you ace the GMAT). But a lot will also depend on your story; on how you will weave all of these elements together to make yourself a compelling candidate for these super-competitive programs.
