Any rough idea on how much weightage is given to interview?

Varies as per institution. Can change over the years. Nobody reveals it (except IIMI which has 50% for GMAT, 50% for all else).

They take into account your GMAT, profile (acads, background, work-ex, gender, international work-ex, etc), SOP (+referral), interview performance and arrive at a composite score. But, this score isn’t everything. Prior to starting the process, they have set out what kind of cohort they’d like (how many girls, how many IT, how many non-engineers, how many Defence, how many 8yrs+, etc). The profiles get spread out as per these clusters prior to sending out the offers.

It’s a complex process. Don’t think too much about it. It makes absolutely no difference to what you can or should do. Just focus on giving your best.

Switch your job. LOR can be from the current employer. It doesn’t have to be your new employer. The job offer is in your hand today. The admission offer may not be tomorrow.

zayden, hey is it o to get LORs from for example my the new employer as you said if someone just switched? like if he joins on 20th November and submits an application on the 30th the last day of the deadline....will the LOR be of any value in the eyes of IIM B since its just a few days since he joined.... also would the new employers even write LORs ? because its clear that he would be in the company only for a four months?

ok*

That’s exactly why I suggested to get the LOR from the colleagues you work with today and/or have worked with in the past. Do NOT get it from the firm you’d join on 20th.

I understand that the word "current" may have confused some. If you with with X now and switch to Y on 20th Nov, please get LOR from X as they know you much better.

zayden, i actually meant to ask the opposite as an example. if someone joined on 1st November and somehow gets an LOR from the new employer by 30th then would it still hold any worth in the admission team’s eyes?

It would. But then would you have been able to do something so significant within the month which would help your supervisor write in-depth about? Also, it better align with the achievements you outline for this firm in the "work ex" section in the form.

The LOR should be from someone who knows you well. Don’t go for someone who is higher in designation but only knows you superficially. The same factor would apply in this case too.

Exactly my point. I am clear about my MBA dream but if I don’t make it this year. I switch and next year when I want to apply - I will lose connection with people I spent 6 years in the organisation and nobody in the new organisation will be ready to write LOR within 6-7 months of joining

Resigning now means I will join in early Feb. And next R1 in August, mostly 6-7 months

Don’t worry about it. If you have built even two meaningful relations over the past 6 years, you’re sorted. And what if you don’t switch now but the referee you’ve identified jumps ship? You can still request them later!

If you have a good opportunity in your hands now, go ahead and join. You never know what surprise life has in store for you. You can request a LOR from any senior colleagues you worked with at any time earlier. Or your clients/customers or partners for that matter.

Go ahead. R3 results would be out by mid Jan. If you get shortlisted, just enjoy the break for two month instead of joining the new firm. If you don’t make the list, join them and retry in Aug. If you don’t have confidence at that time on anyone to give your LOR, reach out to old supervisors. Keep in touch with them until then.
