Hello

I got an email for Application Verification Completion on Feb 11th but have not yet heard back on the interview status yet.
I opted for Delhi location for my interview but I believe there are none happening in Delhi right now. :?

Are they still interviewing candidates? If yes, by when I can expect any response.

Any help is appreciated. :|

Hey, seeing from this thread as well as some other threads, interviews are still going on. Though these are the last few days for interviews as results are expected on March 5th for R2. Don't lose hope yet.

Wish you luck.

Hi,

I am kind of stuck in a scenario to pick between the 2 schools. I have interviewed for ISB and eagerly awaiting results on March 5th. In the meanwhile, I just received an offer from NUS, Singapore and my decision is to be made by the 4th of March (1 day before the ISB decision). Would appreciate your inputs on making this decision and also wanted to find out if it is okay to write to ISB and ask them for some direction and this could be a major decision by just 1 day.

Any inputs are much appreciated. Thanks

I remember asking this during my inquiry calls. I was able to eke out a "yes" from their rep. when I asked them if they would convey their decision a bit in advance if it were necessary. But my interview date itself is only on 28th, so I don't think it would matter much to me.

In my personal opinion, you should ask them. All the best.

Hi,

There in nothing known as 'Ideal GMAT Score'. There is a very broad range for ISB admits/shortlisted candidates (ranges from as low as 600 to as high as 780). Just remember, it is one piece of the whole puzzle. Given that you acads are good, you can get away with slightly lower GMAT score. So try to give your best shot.

Wish you luck!

Thank you Kunal! :)
Also, are there any negative marks for the work profile you have? Do they prefer people from elite consulting firms over big4? (Sounds like a stupid question, but I heard someone say this so just needed to confirm)

Its all relative buddy. Of course work experience with a stronger brand name is better. Same as the case with engineering from IIT vs from non-IIT (an example). Being said that, as I mentioned earlier as well, there are a lot of things at play simultaneously while evaluating one's profile. Institute like ISB takes an holistic approach. In my view, there should not be any 'negative' marks for your association with Big 4 audit firms.

ISB does not give out decisions (usually) before the decision date. However, there is nothing to lose in asking!

I'd say, target a scoreof between 700-730 to be really comfortable. It is not difficult with the requisite preparation.
It is rare to get through with less than 680, unless you have really outstanding facets at work to boast of. Your 10th and 12th scores are good, but Graduation % is not too great.
Hope the frank answer helps you.

Hey,

Best way is to find some one in your social circle. Another way is to connect through LinkedIn.

Also, you can try the ISB Student Connect thing (Link: http://www.isb.edu/pgp/student-connect). I have not tried the student connect thing but looks good. You can actually check the past experience and industry of the current students and then connect with whom so ever you want to as per your goals/interests.

Hi

I gave my GMAT in Oct'15 and secured a score of 700 . I applied to ISB schools for round 2. Unfortunately , I did not even get interview call. I was told and I feel my profile wasn't really bad(If I can say so) :? . Right now, I am just not able to understand where I went wrong.
It would be of immense help if anyone could review my essays .
Please PM me.

Thanks in advance!

Hi pheonix157,

Relax. Try to chalk out your entire career roadmap and then apply for Round 1 2018.

Scan your strengths and add a new dimension to your profile in this year. Start working towards this and build the application.

Good luck.

Hi,

I am getting really stressed over here, got over with my interview last Friday, but mine seemed to be a stress interview, they were not smiling and one of the panelist didn't smiled at all to me :?
From what I saw on these last few pages, those who went through stress interview were rejected in the end.

Any suggestions?

Need an expert comment!
I was a Round 1 applicant and denied after interview. Before Gmat I was clear that I wanted to MBA in finance(I've been working in BFS domain for close to 6 years now), but as I went through the process, and suggested by many(Current students, alumnus, consultants) that the obvious path for me would be to get into consulting. And so I stated consulting in my essays. However, I was not confident about and probably that reflected in my interviews.

I would be taking my GMAT again as 680 did not help me either. I wanted to know if I change my career goals this time, will it go against me and would it be fair to mention that I got swayed by opinions for choosing consultancy?

Thanks in advance!
