Many students consider that achieving a high GMAT score can increase their chances of getting admitted in an International MBA program.
Despite this, throughout our experience in handling MBA admissions, we have come across several cases where the applicant’s GMAT score was below average but they were allowed admission in an international MBA program.
Therefore, the requirement is just that you get to the minimum GMAT score; however, getting a high score is of trivial importance in the admission process.
The Absolute Admission Strategy Designed In Accordance With Dipak’s ProfileWhen Dipak, an MBA applicant came to us to in order to get the assistance in his application process, we decided to work out an Absolute Admission Strategy for him. We wanted to adopt an overall approach that could inculcate all the possibilities of meeting with success in his admission process. Thus, our strategy helped Dipak to stand out amongst his competitors in every aspect of the application process.
In Jasper’s(Admission Consultant) opinion, paying too much attention on attaining a high GMAT score was not as important as writing interesting essays that could engage the evaluator. The essays should be written in a way that they highlight the basic traits of your personality and interests as well as your professional experience. This can help you to leave an unforgettable impression on the admissions authority.
Dipak applied to top institutes such as INSEAD, Stanford and Harvard, and our professional expert Christopher helped him to draft impressive essays.
Write an Interesting CVAs far as writing a CV was concerned, Katherine helped Dipak to develop a CV with the same interests and experiences but one that could easily differentiate him from others. Thus, the most important aspects of an international MBA application are the essays from the quantitative point of view as well as the presentation and choice of words used in your CV. It should be concise and exhaust at the same time.
Improve English SkillsThe next thing which Dipak did was to improve his English skills. He worked with our Accent Reduction wizard, Richard in order to improve his English communication skills. This is one factor that can help you to interact with Adcoms and during interviews.
Reasons behind Successful AdmissionsAlthough Dipak was offered admission from Stanford and Harvard he received a refusal from INSEAD. This was because of Dipak’s insufficient international experiences. Harvard considered him as a qualifying applicant on the basis of his past experiences as well as his well written essays that stressed upon his strengths. On the other hand, Stanford offered him admission because of his honesty in revealing what happened to him in the near past as well as his optimistic approach about the future.
Thus, at JK we realized that a successful application works out on a good branding strategy and the right way to integrate all the elements.
