I am waiting for my interview call in Bangalore. And I would rather concentrate my energy on preparing for the interviews than worrying about when/if they are gonna call me.

So, can someone who has attended the interview share his/her experience? Or do we have any parallel thread about that?

Thanks!

FROM ISB Admissions Blog: The ISB-YLP Edge
ISB believes that leaders can be identified early and mentored such that they realize their true potential. TheYoung Leaders Programme (YLP) has been introduced with this motive in mind. It is an exacting foundation that gives college students pursuing their bachelor’s or master’s studies – a head start to their MBA dream. With the Young Leaders Programme, admits get mentored through a structured leadership programme, get access to the school’s network, plus exclusive scholarships.

The advantages of an early admission can be enumerated:

Leadership Development:

With a plethora of activities, the campus is always buzzing and the learning never ends, even during the 2 years that you are working. Time management, prioritizing and organizing, ability to take quick decisions and socializing – these skills are imbibed in YLP candidates at a young age.

– Rishi Ayyer, a YLP admit and student of the PGP Class of 2016.

 You also build your network on campus. That, somehow gives you confidence and makes you modest at the same time.

 

Make Bold Moves: Once you get through YLP, it only makes you fearless. Being a YLP admit, you still have two years to explore your options. Applying early gives you assurance, and allows you to focus on your work during the two years, rather than building your MBA profile. An alumni from the PGP Class of 2015, Sukriti Patny, quoted –

Since I knew about the admission offer when I was in college itself, I was more focused on placements, and in trying to find a job that would give me substantial work experience in 2 years. Also, it helped me figure out what kind of industry and function I wanted to work in.

The YLP also prepared Ankit Madaan (Class of 2016) for his ISB journey -

Ever since my under-graduation, I wanted to build a career in consulting. So, I took up consulting roles at American Express, which prepped me up for ISB’s PGP.

Having less work experience is a challenge, but, at the same time, very interesting because it gears you up for interactions with people who have deeper insights about various industries and helps you learn from them.

 With the YLP – not only can you plan your career, but also life events as you have clarity at an early stage.

 

Exclusive Scholarships:

I always wanted to be an entrepreneur.YLP gave me time to understand industry structure better while securing my MBA dreams. I was able to plan my finances better, while being fortunate enough to receive a scholarship of Rs.10 lakhs which enhanced my decision of joining ISB this year. There was no burden of a student loan as I could pay the rest of the fee with my earnings from previous jobs.

– Samya Mishra, , a YLP admit and student of the PGP Class of 2016.

With the time that YLP bought her, she was able to concentrate on areas she was most interested in, and work towards her goal. She plans to launch her own venture, post ISB.

Well, what I have gathered from various discussions I had post ISB R1 results (with current students, alums etc) that interview shortlist is kind of GMAT score neutral i.e. even if with a bad score and a good profile you may get an interview call. Post interview they kind of add everything i.e. GMAT, experience, interview score, extra-curricular and then make the cut. Remember all these views are of very few people I had talked to, they may not be correct/accurate! So what could have probably hurt my chances are:
1. Low GMAT score (had a 640)
2. Higher competition from Financial Services background
3. More focus on IT and ITES based people (counter-intuitive) since maximum jobs are coming from e-commerce and IT.
4. Multiple job switch (4) in 6 years of total experience

Again, these are my best guess. Though would like to understand from ISB better once the admission season get over.

Let me know in case of any other queries.

Hi All, Done with my interview yesterday.

It was pretty cool and started with usual question like brief your profile, Why MBA, Why ISB and your qualities.
Just be thorough with what you have written in essays, they will literally pick almost all points from your essays.
Since I am from Financial services, couple of questions were asked on same.

Overall experience was good...not that grilling as I was expecting.

Hoping for the best. The waiting period starts!!!

All the best to all :-)

Hey guys, my application portal's been showing the Application status as completed for quite some time.

Application Completion Status:
Completed

Your application has been verified and found complete. Further update on short-listing will be available approximately 5 to 7 days before your interview, if shortlisted, for the interview location you have chosen. Request you to bear with us, till we communicate further.

But I have got no mail from the adcom saying the same. Should I be worried ? I submitted on 12th Jan.
