Hey ankurhbti,

It has been always 30 Nov on ISB website. I would rather stick with that. The only thing that might happen if you apply soon is that you might get an interview call early.

Did anyone face problem on uploading documents at ISB website? Is there any specific format (other than pdf documents scanned at 150/200 dpi) to scan the docs?
One more query - Isb has only one place to upload transcript for one degree, wehreas my final semester marksshet does not have individual grades of previous semesters, it only has totals from previous semesters. Does any face this situation?

I was planning to call adcom but thought to check with you guys first.

Thanks.

I just scanned my docs in pdf (wasnt even sure about 150/200dpi) and luckily it worked for me. I didnt have multiple transcripts.
The problem I had was the with the applicatyion website. It is very flaky. Whenever I complete filling a section and click on next, it would take me to the login page. It happened gazillion times.
Sorry, I wasnt of much help.

I was able to upload documents but the I am still thinking as what to do with multiple transcripts. One option is to scan all transcripts as one PDF file and upload but I am concerned whether that is what ISB wants?

Here is a disturbing experience I had.

I applied very early for round2 and received an interview invite last week. However, it looks like they were sending a bunch of round1 notifications yesterday and I got a ding email too. I called them up and after bouncing me between 3 phone numbers, someone finally spoke to me. He apologized about the "technical glitch" and notified me about a followup email rectifying that. My invite stays intact.

It is possible that my app got mixed up with rd1 list but what if I did not receive an invite already. I would have never known that this is a "glitch" and would have taken the ding at face value.

Ah! thats painful. In my case also it seems there is some technical glitch. I applied in R1, after that I didn't get any communication, so I thought isb didn't like my application. Now I haven't even received rejection mail either. I'm following up on my status, but no updates yet.

When should one start expecting R2 interview calls, although the deadline was just a couple weeks back how long does ISB take to get back to you?

Also, does anyone have a sense as to the number of applicants in first round vs. 2nd round. Trying to gauge the conversion rate difference in the two rounds.

Thanks,

I submitted mine on 30th Nov. I was looking at posts in Pagalguy and one person who also submitted on 30th Nov has got an interview call for January. Surprised I was, but thats what I expect when it comes to Business School Admission process
