Hi All, Finally got an interview invite today. Same story as above. Need to travel to HYD or MHLI because of no slots in Bangalore. All the best.

I had opted for Mumbai interview centre but have not recieved interview call. I dont think that I will receive a call for Mumbai centre so late.
What are the chances for receiving a call later with a chance to interview in Hyderabad? Should I mail to ISB asking for feedback?

ISB Interview prep: Tip No. 2

Q: Tell me about yourself:

This is going to be your opening question at the ISB interview, much like any other interview. Use it to set the context. This is not meant for you to speak out your resume bullet points one after the other. Instead, tell the panel your story - why did you take up a particular project? Why did you switch jobs?

However, keep track of the time. This is your elevator pitch and the answer should not be more than 2-3 minutes long. You can talk about your academics, professional life and/or hobbies, interests etc. - elements that tie in well with your story. The next set of questions can be based on what you tell the panel in this answer, so be wise about what you say.

End with a note saying why you are there.

Hey Congrats on the call.
This shows yet again that GMAT is not everything
(I am the example on the other end of the decision :) )

Go through the "ISB Preparation Kit" in my signature. There are some useful links and articles.
Let me know if you need any other information

Hi,

This might be an overreaching thought, but from what I observed (PG and here) most of the people who have got calls are in the range of 670-710 for delhi (saw only one with 760). I know that GMAT score isn't everything but going by the bucket criteria that ISB seems to talk about itself, GMAT also plays a role.
Also, I don't think that so many people with good score will do badly with their essays. :!:

Just saying :wink:

PS: Disappointed at not having got a call yet :( . Sad more than disappointed :cry:

Even I am very disappointed at not getting an interview call yet. It is very difficult to get into ISB but I believed that I would atleast get a chance to interview.
I am still hoping that ISB would call me to hyd for interview.
