To be eligible as overseas candidate for IIMA you need to be onsite for 12 months and I had only 10 months

Hey, sorry to hear that. Good luck for the rest of your apps. Are you awaiting to hear on your other apps?

I'm not sure what the 12 month overseas eligibility criteria is. Please elaborate.

This leads to two more questions

1) Is there any advantage in applying as an overseas candidate versus as a candidate from india

2) do you have to be currently living abroad for more than a year to apply as overseas candidate or if sometime in the past you've lived overseas for more than an year then you are eligible. Probably this is a dumb question...but i thought i'll get it clarified.

Actually very valid questions You have to be living abroad and complete 12 months by december 31st of the year of cat examination
12 months IIM A and 18 months for other IIMs

GMAT score must be 730+ They map ur GMAT percentile to CAT percentile


Advantage of overseas app??

its a lot easier to get 730+ in GMAT than getting even 90 percentile in CAt

also the level of GMAT is bogus as compared to CAT

Are you talking about the 2 year program?

I thought the only requirement for the one year PGPX program was the GMAT irrespective of whether you are overseas of not.

22K US = about 10 lakhs in INR....

even if that is 10 lakhs per year, its not really that much. average salaries are hovering at 20 lakhs a year after graduation, so the ROI is still great. in fact lateral placements are commanding even higher salaries and there are umpteen placements happenning abroad at salaries starting at 100K or more. if one gets an admit, it is not a tough decision to make.

gaurav,

IIM-A PGPX seems to be off to a good start. I would be cautious about average salaries and "umpteen international placements" in PGP. Papers have a way of sensationalizing top international salaries and average salaries tend to take in dollar salaries mixed with local. It's like going to, say, INSEAD or GSB and looking at the highest salary of 400-500K and then getting excited about that. If you are keen on working abroad, you should get in touch with alumni/students and get the correct placement picture/statistics. If you want to remain in India then IIM-A is, of course, fantastic.

Necro,
Last week there was an article in Economic Times about the PGPX placements for the first batch. The placement stats were pretty impressive. I agree with the point you make. Newspapers hype the salaries and international placements. Number of people getting those and the profiles of those people is definitely something that I should research more before making any conclusions.
If i remember correctly about 30 students have received placement offers so far. Also ET mentioned a figure of 23 lakhs. Not sure if this figure included the dollar salaries or only the rupee salaries. I'll have to double check that. If it did include the dollar salaries then the figure is VERY misleading indeed.
