Dear madhantce,

I read that the issue is resolved for you. But just for the record so that anybody else who might face the same issue, I am responding to the query here :)

Please note that you will have to type in the essay in the given space in your application form. Copy- pasting from your word file or notepad will not allow the essay to be submitted.

Dear tanaybanik901,

Your GMAT score is at a lower end. I would suggest you retake GMAT and apply with better score.

Dear Pallavim28,

1. Your academic details look fine to me. Your roles and responsibilities in these companies will also be evaluated in for the comprehensive profile based shortlisting.
2. A safe GMAT score would be somewhere between 600-650. But as I mentioned above, other sections filled in the application form (including essays) will also play a major role in making it to the final shortlist.
3. Please view the placement report of the PGPM 2017-18 batch at https://www.greatlakes.edu.in/pgpm/placement-snapshot
You may also view placement reports of the previous batches by clicking on links at the bottom of this page. The market dynamic keeps changing every year due to which new areas/sectors get added to the list and the major areas/sectors keep changing.

Hope this helps you!

Jibs

Can someone please guide me on my chances for Great Lakes (1 year PGPM)

GMAT : 610 : (Quant : 47 Verbal : 28)
IT Experience: 3 years (by next year June would be around 4 years)

Academics : 10th -> 91%

Hi Jibbi James,
I want to understand whether the cutoff for pgpm remains same in both the rounds? Because I have been told that its usually a little higher for round2.
Could you please provide your insight on this.

Thanks
