    Hi Artistic Engineer, this is Deepak Punwani from MBA Exchange. Lots to like in the profile you have shared. Your academic scores are excellent. Both Jadavpur University and XLRI are top 10 in their respective domains. Your determination to do well academically really comes through. And it seems you have taken leadership positions outside work in your extra curricular activities. And a Product Manager role also gets you closer to your post MBA goals. So that seems to tie up well. My concern is that as my peers have mentioned, your prior MBA will be a hindrance at Stanford. They dont prefer those with a second MBA unless the candidates have substantial work experience in which case they ask them to apply for the …

    Hi Ms. Artistic Engineer! This is Kate Richardson, Senior Admissions Consultant.

I think the other challenge, especially …

    Hi Ms. Artistic Engineer, what a great combination you have! This is Donna Bauman with Stratus Admissions and I am happy to provide some insight on your profile. I like your grades, your GMAT and your product management experience already. Be prepared to make the case for why you need this additional training in your MBA when you did the PGDM course already. You can get through this but you should address it in your application. For GSB, I want you to think big and mine your life for stories that can help you explain what matters most to you. This program is tough for anyone—let alone an international student applying one year after covid where as much as half of the spots for internationals …
