Rajan Seth
An awesome GMAT score of 770! An IIT Bombay Alumni! Worked for Credit Suisse and JP Morgan Chase! Strong Community work at Teach for India! Gasp! Rajan’s profile is the ideal profile that most US MBA programs would want to consider. He had worked hard to build this profile over the years. And so he did. Rajan earned a free MBA from UNC Kenan Flagler! Yes, he got a 100% scholarship.
His 770 score on the GMAT and his IIT alumni credentials helped, but it was really Rajan’s hard work on his applications and his school research that led him to this outstanding result. An IITian, a CFA, and an FRM, Rajan is truly a star in the financial investments industry. Rajan worked with GyanOne to properly catalogue all his impressive achievements into his applications..Kenan Flagler success stories

How to get 770 on GMAT

by GyanOne » Thu Sep 09, 2021 9:28 pm
Image

Scoring a 770 on GMAT (99 percentile) is rare enough, but doing it in one’s first attempt on this challenging test is rarer still. What does it take to get this outstanding score, and how should one optimize one’s preparation strategy to overcome constraints and suit one’s strengths? Before one can start dreaming of a great GMAT score, one needs to be able to plan for it. Unfortunately, most test takers plan for a test wishfully, and execute fitfully.

In other words, everyone wants a great score, but not everyone puts in the effort and structure into preparation that is required to achieve it..How to get 770 on GMAT

IESE Assessment Day

by GyanOne » Sun Sep 12, 2021 8:23 pm
Image

The IESE business school assessment day is an important part of the IESE MBA Admissions process. Surprising, then, to note that it is not even mandatory for most applicants! The IESE MBA follows an extremely thorough admissions process, and while the usual steps of asking for applications and conducting personal interviews is done by IESE too, it goes a step further by inviting a selected few applicants to the IESE Assessment Day. However, the Assessment Day invitation is not a necessary precursor for an admit – indeed, in the past, applicants have been accepted to the IESE MBA without being invited to the Assessment Day, or even after not being able to make it post an invitation. Unlike the IMD Assessment Day, which is similar but a necessary part of the process, the IESE Assessment Day is therefore not mandatory, but it is highly recommended in case one is invited..MBA Admission Consultants India
