    Hi, it’s Nisha from mbaMission! You have some great things going for you, such as a top undergrad institution and strong academics (critical for Indian applicants), a progressive career to date at an F500, and a track record of meaningful community involvement. Your desired post-MBA path makes sense to me – it sounds like you’d really like to round out your strategy skills before entering a higher-level strategy role possibly in your industry. I like that your work experience involves international collaboration – the Indian applicants I’ve worked with who are most successful have international work experience. Have you had a chance to travel abroad as well as part of these efforts?

    I think that Tuck is in your target zone, as …

  • Stratus Admissions Counseling | Odds Assessment: 25%

I also like that you have exposure beyond India since many Indian candidates have very limited international experience.

    I’m not as impressed with your extracurriculars though there may be more than meets the eye. Think about the contribution and impact you have made through your community engagement and how this will …

    Hi, this is Deepak Punwani from MBA Exchange. You definitely seem to be good in your role assessing risk, Mr Risk Manager, as you are looking to minimize the risk of a ding via your diversified choice of schools ! I like your profile. If your top 5 IIT is either Kanpur or KGP or Delhi, you will already have a lot of your seniors as alums at very school on your list. Tap into that resource and build ground level support at your choice schools. Your GMAT is also very good and wont keep you out of any school (assuming you have a balance between Q and V). Your GPA seems a tad low but if its only the M Tech score or a …
