Application Insights From ISB YLP Admit 2019
Q 1. Please discuss your profile briefly.
I am a graduate from Lady Shri Ram college for Women and currently working in a Fintech company. My role is in business development area and I work as an associate in Implementation and Special Projects group.
Q 2. How did you shortlist the schools to apply to? What were the key points that you were looking for? What resources did you refer to while making the decision?
The batch composition was the main point I looked into in addition to location (I wanted to stay in India so shortlisted the best Indian colleges)
Q 3. What do you think was the most important decision you took during your application process? And Why?
The most important decision was which consulting to choose. I was working while I was applying and realized that I need assistance to give my best in the application. Many companies just loot you and don't give the required services. I went with GoalISB and was happy with its services.
Q 4. What was the most challenging part of submitting your application to different schools? Please discuss how you handled these? Any pointers for future applicants?
I submitted my applications to 2 schools. I was successful in both. I concentrated on one application at one time and tried to talk to many alums who have a similar background, this helped me gain better insights about my future career ladder.
Q 5. What was the interview experience like? Did you feel you were well prepared at the time of the interview? What all resources did you access to prepare for the interview? Which of these provided the most valuable inputs?
I took consulting services from GoalISB hence I was pretty confident. Interview was smooth. The best advice is be yourself and be honest the rest is all secondary.
Q 6. What are some myths that every applicant must leave behind before they start the application process?
One myth I have heard is GMAT score is the main component for selection. Never underestimate your profile on the basis of college GPA, extra curricular experience, years of experience etc
Q 7. Any suggestions for future applicants as a person who has been there, done that successfully!
Shortlist schools after looking into many factors and concentrate on your goal throughout the process. Be calm throughout the process!! It helps a person a lot.
