With a 690, your profile is as good as it can get. This means that if you focus on your essays and recommendation, you can expect at-least an interview call from ISB with surety. From there on, its your interview preparation that will get you through. Your awards and work experience need to be menti...

AdmitLane.com, Thank you for your response. As for my post-MBA goals: I would like to have access to a larger pool of jobs, especially in international companies, and to be able to ocupy a higher position (connected to the Marketing field). Of course, Ițmthinking about a raise too. What would you ...


So I would be keen on applying to Cornell, Kellogg, Emory. Also I would apply to NUS and HKUST.This way I wouldn't be away from the job market for long. What do you think are my chances at the US schools I stated above? Do you think my list is a good mix of reach and safe now? Also for cornell and ...

Pros: Unique work experience Unique UG Exerience Cons: Average GMAT FOR TOP SCHOOLS Work ex below average for most top schools What schools you should target? Depends on your post-MBA goals. Do share your career aspirations, spending appetite and more to help us get the right set of schools for you....


With your work experience and post-MBA goals, you should ideally target executive MBA programs (Thought of IIM exec. programs?) . Even with a long work-ex, top schools in Europe and US would need you to be above 700. However, with a 670-700 range, you should be targeting some other good schools such...

Another reason, ISB might have dinged is low work-experience combined with below average GMAT. I still feel you should re-apply with one more year in your bag now (Assuming you are targeting next year entry) , bringing in experiences that make you a unique candidate. Is there anything you have done ...

You shouldn't downplay your chances at US schools by not applying. Even with a 690, you represent diversity and international experience across emerging markets is certainly valued. Keep 5-6 schools, 2 US schools and rest 4 spread across Europe and Asia. Spending good time on shortlisting schools wi...


If working in US is a must post-MBA goal, INSEAD could disappoint you as most of the post-MBA jobs seem to lie in the european or singapore region. Having said that, INSEAD is one of the unique and marvellous programs in terms of diversity represented, collaboration with Wharton and two campuses giv...


Your GMAT score + UG GPA gives a strong academic indication and since YTP encourages international students to apply, you would have a good chance. About 100+ from 170 students are internationals. Critical would be your recommendations and essays to stand out, since YTP needs 5 essays, it definitely...


Given your experience, INSEAD should not be a long shot since you have good international work experience and GMAT within the range of INSEAD. However since you belong to the over-represented pool, you need to work hard on your essays to focus on diversity, leadership and problem-solving aspects dur...


Hi there, You have a great work experience and your leadership skills do show through the positions you have held. So we assume you have great stories to tell for your essays. Also, you experience is international and spread across countries which is again good. While the length and breadth of your ...

Hi Tushar You have got a great extra-curricular record, you only need to present it well in form of your essays. Spread it across essay questions properly and do talk about unique experiences that set you apart from others. Since your chosen specialisation is in Finance , you will need to show a pas...


Hello there! All queries are equally important and I am sure you will get further responses. I think your work experience shows hints of handling multiple stakeholders in a diverse international setting. You should focus on challenges you faced, how you handled them, how you weighed various options ...
