    You’re a very solid applicant for INSEAD and nearly check all the boxes: An IIT grad who does not work as a software engineer in tech. A senior consultant with a Big Four firm, a very selective job. A demonstrated passion for our global world, having traveled to 25 countries before you turned 25 and worked for clients in five different countries. Your pro bono consulting work for NGOs. So what’s not to like: Your GPA which is low. Your GMAT, which for an Indian male with a degree in engineering is low even though you are 11 points above the 709 class average. You also are on the young side for INSEAD where the average age of an incoming MBA student is 29. You …

    This is Deepak Punwani from MBA Exchange. As others have mentioned, you have a good profile for INSEAD. But at the same time, your is also one of the most common and hence competitive profiles at INSEAD. Your promotions and international travel will certainly come in handy to increase your chances at the school. Also your goals will resonate with the school. It can be a touch and go decision and what will definitely help is if you get great recos and can show the entrepreneurial side of your profile via your ‘outside of work’ experiences. One note of caution re re-applications at INSEAD. Its one of the most re applicant “non-friendly” schools so if you think that by waiting another year, you can …

    Hello Mr. Indian Consultant! Krista Nannery here from mbaMission.

    I’ve worked with a lot of consultants from India before but very few have your level of on-the-ground international experience. This will help you stand out in this very competitive process. Play this up and make sure the locations of all your projects are clear. Even the personal travel helps here! Make sure that’s a bullet point at the end of your CV.

    You mention IoT as a goal — if you have current IoT experience, make sure that’s clear on your resume too. That’s a hot topic in b-schools these days and I find that candidates with that experience can sometimes get a little further in the process. On that note though — immediate post-MBA …

    INSEAD runs older and more experienced, and his GPA is on the lighter side of the range. But, experience is good and so is the GMAT, since european schools don't focus as much on the GMAT as US schools. LBS and IMD should also be on the 50+% chances of admission. I think he's on the fence at INSEAD and IESE. On the other hand, he should be competitive at Oxford/Cambridge. Kudos on an excellent list of schools as well. Good luck!

    Not enough work experience. Highly qualified from education and scores perspective. Consulting for just 4 years is not enough time to understand the ins and outs of alpha type personalities. Negotiations, strategy, sociopolitical climate and technology trends.
