I had received the official score report in June in which my QA percentile was 83 . Yesterday while downloading the official score report from the GMAC website , the percentile showed 81. What should I fill in the ISB application form ?I had requested score reports to be sent to ISB during my test. So I am not sure which percentile would they have received and would there be a mismatch if i mention the recent percentile. Please do reply as i need to get this cleared and then submit the application.


There is a change in the percentile mapping of the GMAC, hence the change.
If your score was reported after that, then ISB would have received the changed percentile i believe, so you should go ahead and write the latest percentile.

I attended the infosession in mumbai yesterday, had 4 alums and Mr Menon from the admission committee taking a 2 hour session. Very informative and nicely done.

A key takeaway mentioned during the session for shortlisting of candidate.

There is a 3 bucket criteria, within a bucket you can compensate for an individual performance parameter but you cannot do it amongst the bucket. Let me explain with mentioning what these buckets are.

Bucket 1 Academic performance, your scores from 12th grade ,graduation, transcript and GMAT, now you can compensate lower grades in your acads with a very good gmat score, or if you have an ok gmat score and very high academic performance then you will be a potential candidate depending in your other buckets.

Bucket 2 : Leadership Qualities, now if you cant describe a role wherein you have portrayed leadership qualities, describe a situation where you used some qualities you consider can be equivalent to a leadership quality.the individual parameters in this bucket are Roles and Responsibilities, LOR, accolades, now if you feel the role played by you is not significant enough, this can be compensated by LOR or some rewards etc.

Bucket 3 personal attributes, now this one is tricky,interest, extra curricular, social work, varied interest. Now remember people if you haven't done social work till now don't start it 3 months from ur applications time and mention it cuz then it wont matter, it will reflect an attitude of doing social work with an end goal of mba degree, that is not a personal trait of someone who wants to gives back to the society. But with your varied interest and extra curricular activities you can compensate if you haven't done any social work.

Now, coming back to the point you cannot compensate among the buckets. If you have a low overall acad bucket you cannot compensate with your brilliant leadership bucket, so hopefully its clear now.

Moving on, start working on your essays immediately even if you are an R2 candidate have not given your gmat, i know gmat studies are more important but daily you can give 30-45 minutes to collect your thoughts for the essays(i am not able to do it yet :( ). Anyways that was the key thing according to me for applications.

Besides if there is an infosession in your city please ensure you do attend it. Website information is nowhere equivalent from what you learn at an infosession.

Hi Ankur
i got it reviewed from 3 different persons, all from different age group and B school students.
Lets see ....

But I am not able to fix one error: "Employment joining date not matching with the first joining date".......I have checked the dates...no dates overlapping.

Can you think of some solution to the problem.

Archit


Hi Archit congrats on receiving the interview call. I wanted to know how did you solve the above raised problem of yours as I am facing the same problem before submitting. I have checked the application for clash of dates numerous times. What to do? Kindly help.

But, I am pretty confused. Interviews? Isn't it too early? Doesn't the adcom wait for the deadlines? Or, are you an International Applicant?

Hi guys..

I just submitted my application and im hoping to get an interview call.

I have background of undergrads in mechanical engg. from NIT-Trichy. avg GPA of 7.2
Extra currics- part of the basketball team,winning at national level inter college tournament at IIT Kanpur
- Head of the Publicity committee for NITT's national level cultural fest.

Working in the automotive field with Renault-Nissan for the past 2 years and will have about 2.8 yrs of experience if i do get ISB.
Part of the planning and Architecture team of the Datsun GO, Designing and implementing 6 layouts in the vehicle.

GMAT score of 710. q49 v38 AWA5.5

Any feedback on how this profile would look like to get a call for interview when coupled with decently strong essays.

And
How long does this process usually take .. i.e. from the submission of your application?

Also , one of my evaluators has finished his project and relocated back to Japan, Do i need to be calling up ISB and giving them his new phone number there??
