There are multiple factors which determines your chances in any B-schools. Some of the broad criteria which I'm aware of are (not in any particular order):
1. GMAT score
2. Academic performance and Institution name
3. Extra curricular, volunteer activities
4. Leadership initiatives
5. Steps taken to reach your goal. This may include some certifications, program enrollments etc
6. Work Experience
7. How well you present yourself in the essays and interview.
8. Awards and recognitions are added advantage

In ISB a candidate profile is compared with profiles of other candidates from the same sector. For example a candidate from Finance background will be compared with other candidates from Finance background. So generally competition is tough for people from most typical backgrounds like IT, Finance etc.

Here is a link on ISB website which you may find useful:

Hello Frds,

Pardon me if this is not the right thread to place this info. I haven't seen this info on Forum so thought to post about it. ISB Class of 2010 Placement began yesterday and Started with a bang as compare to last year. Seems After Summer Placements ISB is roaring once again...

Have a look at Rediff's business News... Since I am new to this Forum and this is my first post I am not able to put Link as per the Moderator's rule. So can't paste the link but its in Today's Rediff's Business News Section...

Thanks..
Amit

Is there a maximum job exp. requirement for ISB? For example....candidates with more than 10 years of experience are less likely to be slected.

The minimum exp required is 2 yrs, the avg experience for previous batch was 5 yrs. There had been cases when isb had admitted 20 yrs of experienced candidates. Check out the ISB batches profile for previous yrs.

yes, surely you can get in touch with the isb for the status update. They usually confirm 7-10 days prior to the confirmed interview dates. Below are the tentative dates for various locations (source ISB site):

Following are the tentative interview dates in cycle-2:
City Dates
Delhi 04 - 10 January, 2010
Kolkata 15 - 17 January, 2010
Hyderabad & International 26 December, 2009 - 07 February, 2010

Based on these dates, you may get a call anytime. All the selection and ding mails are sent at the end and on the same date. So, in worst case, if one is not shortlisted for interview, ISB won't update the status till the end :(

Regarding 2nd attempt of GMAT, I'm not sure if isb would accept your new score in the half of the whole selection process. Check out with isb about this. Though surely these scores would be eligible for next yr.

Thank you :)


For ISB the 80% GMAT score distribution is 680-760 with average being 716. At the sametime ISB has admitted applicants with score as low as 600 provided you have a very strong application.
