In that case, one additional item for you to check would be if the MBA program eligibility since some may insist on 16 year of full-time education.

Is IIM PGPEX better than ISB Hyderabad
It's good that you've already moved on from being a Dentist to a Program Manager.

The IIM degree is meant for a different profile (folks with higher experience). For where you are currently, ISB will fit better.

The big question here is What exactly do you mean by 'career advancement'? What is it that an MBA can give you that you haven't already got from your Masters degree in Health Administration.

I am not really sure about how to approach the application process for MBA programs abroad.I want to know that with my current profile where I stand in comparison to other applicants.

Currently your experience level is too low for GMAT MBA colleges and slightly on the higher side for MiM.

The GMAT scores for most applicants in the IT pool are higher than yours. Over the next few months, you could think about retaking it and also work on strengthening your profile.

I am looking to apply in ISB for sept 2017 intake using my GRE score.

ISB has started accepting GRE score from this year, i just wanted to know about the application process and about this score acceptence.
No one can guess at this point in time how the admissions team will view GRE scores. In fact, even for other (international) schools that have been accepting GRE scores, there's very little official information on the statistics.

Here's what we wrote on this topic earlier:
http://www.mbacrystalball.com/blog/2015 ... s-schools/

But purely based on the estimated GMAT equivalent, your GRE score seems low.

My Target is to do MBA in India, only exception being INSEAD.

Q. Should I target IIM A with my experience??

Q. I am targeting IIM-B, IIM C, ISB as of now, any other suggestions??

Q. Please guide me on how to begin the application process as i dont want to wait for the deadlines.
Considering your geo-constraints, why hold back? Go ahead and apply to all the good prorams in India.

There are also a few other IIMs (I / L) and other insitutes (XLRI, SP Jain) offering 1-year options, but not at the same level as the ones you've mentioned.

Start working on developing your storyline that'll go into the essays. And a higher GMAT would've been helpful, if you have the time/inclination.

1. How competitive is my profile.
2. which schools are within my reach
3. Should I do an MSc vs MBA
4. how is Crystal ball diffrent from other services.
1. Depends on which bschools you have on the target list.

Many QA applicants who've worked with us have a specific problem area - post-MBA goals. You haven't talked about it, so I'm not sure if you've left it out because you're very clear about it (and don't need a validation), or the other way around (i.e. open-ended for now).

2. See point 4 below.

3. This would be related to your goals. It would be incorrect to firm on the degree and then think about what you want from it. The reverse is true. Decide on where you want to take your career, and then decide on the appropriate degree.

4. While most teams are more than happy to rattle out a few names in response to question 2, we are probably the only team to shoot ourselves in the foot by not answering it (since we think quick and easy answers are not in the interest of applicants).

On a serious note, I think there's some independent work (research and introspection) you'd need to do at your end before hiring a consultant.

And if at all possible, try to get the score higher. That'll give the Adcoms one less thing to worry about.

I have taken the GMAT thrice already and 610 has been my best score so far.Can you please evaluate my profile and let me know if I can apply to the following schools?
It's commendable that you have tried to crack the GMAT thrice, while grappling with professional and personal tasks.

However, as you probably know already, that score is going to be the weakest link in the application.

The only person we know of who has cracked ISB with a 610 has shared his story here:
http://www.mbacrystalball.com/blog/2013 ... mat-score/

If the GMAT is not your cup of tea, you could try taking the GRE. Some find it easier. And most international bschools (and some Indian ones like ISB) accept GRE scores as well.

The rationale for an MBA is too vague. You'll have to get more specific about your goals.

The current statement leaves the game wide open and can go anywhere. And Adcoms don't like that.

Why defer the application plans (and the uncertainty) till next year? And why are you only considering PGPX, and leaving so many good options internationally?

I want to do MBA One year from ISB or IIM or US university.
Should I do MS as I am in technical background with expereince in mechanical Industry
MS or MBA??
It is unusual for folks with your background to be stuck between the two degrees.

Most are quite clear that it's an MBA, mainly because it's a platform to move away from what they are currently doing.

Going for an MS would mean you are entrenching yourself into the field that you are already in, making it tougher to move into a managerial role.

Is that what you have in mind?

I'm not too sure, since you've also listed Indian MBA programs.
