HI,

I wanted to know what all I would be needing for my application. I have my GMAt scheduled at 3rd sep. Is there any essay or recommendation I need to prepare before the date.

2nd What is the last date for accepting the offer, I am asking what if there is any other result I am waiting for.

thanks in advance,
Abrakadabra

1. Best to register online and start filling up the form. This alone can take up to 1-3 days (depending on you), so start this part now.

2. Typically you are given 20 days (as per current batch) to make the first commitment fee of 2 Lacs, else you forfeit your admission. It would be wise to email/ call up the PGPX office in working hours and confirm on the R1 admission closure date with them.

IIMA does not need recommendation letters like other colleges. At a later stage in the process, you will just need to provide contact details of three referees.

Essays are in next stage of application, I believe, after you are shortlisted for an interview. Not before. At this point, you should consider each text box for your current and previous job description as a mini essay in itself. Use these to represent yourself the best you can.

Hi Aniruddh,

Thanks for your regular input to assist prospect like us. Will closely follow the tread as I am intend to apply for R1. I have yet to take GMAT, probably end up taking it 2 days before the dead line :)

About Blog, very nice compilation. my two cents of feedback on your blog is, it needs improvement in UX/UI. There are lots opensource CMS tools too build personal website or blog. give it try to those tools.

Regards,
Anand

Hi,

I will have nearly 16 years of IT experience in a top MNC which would also include 5+ years of international experience by Apr 2018 when the next batch of PGPX starts. Based on current batch profiles, can someone tell if this will be more than the usual experience for PGPX and is there any cap on maximum experience in IIM-A ? Also, with the above experience profile, what sort of a GMAT score would I need ?..Thanks

Hi, there is no cap on experience. Usually, one should target a GMAT score of 700 or more.

Hello

This is Alok
Indian
My life can be divided into 2 parts pre 2010 & post 2010

post 2010
GMAT 750(Q51 V39)
Total 6.5 years exp --> 4.5 years at job + 2 years entrepreneurship (Coaching Institute)
Currently working as Senior Design Engineer (Domain expert in metro trains & High speed trains) (R&D of automobile & transportation products)

Pre 2010
But my past is not that great
10th - 84%
12th - 49%
BTECH - 6.3 CGPA in Mechanical

Apart from this I have worked for relief flood victim in 2005, 2014 & 2015 ( we are a group of friends & some locals)
I have won awards in singing, Cricket, Badminton
I work for 2 NGOs (one for blind child & another for children education)
I have won at least 12 awards during my job
I have some designs which are now implemented metro trains in India
Also some patents I have as a team
Have experience in B2B sales with success rate of 100% (1/1)

How should I rate my chance of getting admission to any of these courses
IIM Ahmedabad PGPX Applicants:(2017 Intake) Class of 2018!
IIM Bangalore EPGP 9 Aspirants (Class of 2017 - 18)
IIM Calcutta PGPEX Applicants:(2017 Intake) Class of 2018

Hi Anirudh,

I am in the process of applying in R1. I understand that for the application form to be submitted, the unofficial score is enough. However, If the official score is not yet sent to IIMA, when do I need to send the official score to school: before applying for the program or after getting short listed.

Hi Saci2saci, the official score will be sent by GMAC right ? You just submit the unofficial score copy.

Hey Alok,

I am not an expert at this but can definitely say your profile is quite good for all the schools you mentioned. Your Pre 2010 academics can easily be overshadowed by your GMAT score and your extra curricular activities. If you can somehow have clarity of though on why MBA, what you want to do in future I guess it should not be that tough to crack...

Best wishes buddy!!!

IIM Aspirant,
SBK
