  1. Our profiles couldnt have been more similar
    IT background..2.5 yrs at the time of admit
    GMAT 760

    Y do u think its not worth waiting for a year if u r getting int exposure?
    if i decide not to apply for fall 08, onsite wil probably be the main reason (finances wil be second)
    i’ve joined ims conlusting…as per them, none of the colls in the top 15 are even ‘optimistic’ or ‘dream’… emory or tepper are dream
    So, if u think haas is realistic, either u or IMS shld take a sanity check..

  2. I have a question for you, the score which you received in gmat it is for math and reading, what about essays are they evalute them separately?

  3. Hi Shobhit,

    I’ve just had a successful GMAT (770) but am new to the intl. mba scenario. Going through your blog, I see you’ve done quite a lot of research ;-). Have some queries, will be really glad and grateful if you can help.

  9. Hey Shobit,

    Thats a nice blog you have got.
    Got to it when I was looking for Fuqua essay analysis.
    Hard luck with Duke.

    Good luck with Tuck.

    I had few queries on Fuqua, leader of consequence essay and
    did they give u feed back on what went against you from getting short listed. At what id can i email further of my queries?

  10. Shobit,

    Missed putting my email id.
    My mail id is santosh.jami@hotmail.com

  11. Well .. i guess we have similar kind of profiles and hence are in the same boat! 780 GMAT, IITB, 4 years of IT!!!

    So I am waitlisted at Tuck too! As luck would have it, I am waitlisted at all the school I had applied to (Duke and Johnson) – except Wharton where I got a straight ding!

    Would like to know more about you. Please mail me at the given e-mail if you feel the same.

  12. Hi,
    Iam watching your blog for the past 6 months. Thanks for providing and updating much useful informations.
    I have some queries:
    Iam a mechanical engineer working in IT Engg. sector (Still my work relates to Mech design) and currently in US. Iam planning to take my gmat on the month of April 2009. In the mean time i am planning to take some certification programmes. Below are the certifications available and it is an online programme for 6 months:
    * Executive Certificate in International Management – Thunderbird school of global Mgt.
    * Executive Certificate in Leadership & Management
    * Executive Certificate in Business Administration – University of Notre dame – Mendoza college of business
    This costs around 5000$.
    Is these certifications would be useful for my MBA admissions? or cud they ask questions like “Why u have taken the certifications or y u need MBA again”?

    Please provide some reply so that it will very useful for deciding and planning my career.

    Thanks a lot
