– PROCESS – – PROCESS –
A student is assigned a Mentor- someone who has successfully been through the entire process and has led significant number of students into eminent business schools including ISB. To begin with, the Mentor conducts a detailed kick-start video conference with the student; over this detailed, informal discussion, the mentor gives a run through to the process and answers any questions the student may have. All ISB Admission Consultants in our team are 99th percentilers on the GMAT, MBA from premiere business schools, and carry serious ISB admissions consulting experience.
The student needs to answer our dedicated ISB Profiling Questionnaire. This questionnaire, updated every year as per the required essay topics, extracts all information relevant to one’s profile; this thought provoking questionnaire is a carefully drafted document, meant to bring up pointers and achievements that an applicant didn’t know existed. Adequate time is given to the student for filling up this questionnaire as the response to the same forms the base of the entire application.
After due deliberation over the student’s response, Mentor invites the student for a detailed Brainstorming Session. Over this discussion, apparently the most important interaction in the entire process, the Mentor suggests a broad ‘theme’ of application, clearly linking the student’s background with the need for management education from ISB, short-terms goals, and long-term vision. The Mentor and the Mentee discuss the content and flow of all essays to be written.
At this stage, the actual essay writing for ISB application starts. The student is helped by the mentor to furnish an impeccable version of essays that represent one’s best chance.
The student is guided on who are the best people to get the recommendations from. Further, the Mentor gives a detailed perspective for each recommendation to the student,
This is when the ISB interview preparation process starts. The student is given a set of 15+ interview preparation videos for a robust training on ISB interview preparation. Next, the student is given a detailed set of Frequently Asked Questions in the MBA Interviews. The student is expected to prepare detailed answers to the questionnaire and conduct mock interviews with one’s Mentor. There is no cap on the number of mock interviews and the same are conducted until the student as well as the Mentor is convinced about the preparation. In multiple cases, a new Mentor is introduced during the interview process to help a student gain exposure to multiple interviewing styles.
