FROM ISB PGP Admissions Director Blog: 2 Weeks to Cycle-2 Deadline | FAQs
Here are some last minute frequently asked questions, that will help you gain clarity regarding your application to ISB in the cycle-2.Image

1.       When is the last date to submit the GMAT/GRE score?

January 15, 2017 is the last date to submit your test scores. If you take the standardised test on January 15, you can directly report it from the Test center. Don’t forget to plug in your scores and submit your application on or before the Deadline.

2.       When should you submit my recommender details?

It is best you give your recommender ample of time to do justice to your evaluation, so do this as soon as possible. You will have to enter their name, phone number and official email address, and an evaluation link will be sent to them.

3.       Who should be your evaluator?

Ideally, your evaluator should be someone who has had a chance to observe your work closely in the recent past. Your evaluator should be familiar with your abilities, areas of improvement etc. Here is a detailed blog on the same. http://blogs.isb.edu/admissionsdirector/2016/09/22/all-about-recommendations/



4.       What if you want to change your evaluator details?

Write to apphelp@isb.edu and request for the change

5.       What is the eligibility for the Need-based scholarships?

The family income should be less that Rs 10 lacs. Family income includes the income/ pension of you father, mother, spouse and any unmarried sibling if any. Income proofs for the same need to be submitted

6.       Do we get merit-based scholarships in Cycle 2?

Yes, we do give out 50% of the merit scholarships in the Cycle 2

7.       What are the scholarships available in Cycle 2 ?

Apart from the need-based and merit-based scholarships, there are corporate scholarships and alumni endowments are given out once you join ISB. Here are more details of the same http://www.isb.edu/pgp/fees-financing/Scholarships/corporate-and-other-scholarships

8.       What is the eligibility for the merit-based scholarships?

Everyone who applies to ISB is by default considered for the merit-based scholarship. The overall application is evaluated for the same – the GMAT, Acads, Quality of Workex and Interview performance all count.

9.       What should we project in the essays?

You can base your essays to highlight your strengths. Here is a blog on what do we look for in a candidate. http://blogs.isb.edu/admissionsdirector/2015/09/22/what-do-we-look-for-in-a-pgp-candidate/

10.   Is being a re-applicant a deterrent?

No, ISB doesn’t differentiate between fresh applicants and re-applicants. If you are a re-applicant, do highlight your achievements from the last time you have applied.



Hope these answers clear your doubts. Do write to pgp@isb.edu should you need more information

All the best with your application.

“When you are at ISB , you’ve hit the Formulae 1 Circuit” – Rahine & G [#permalink]

FROM ISB PGP Admissions Director Blog: “When you are at ISB , you’ve hit the Formulae 1 Circuit” – Rahine & Gaurav
Business school competitions are a great avenue to test yourselves against the best. Participating in these through the year at ISB can be a very useful addition to your self-development initiatives.

Though competitions aren’t always directly relevant or helpful during placements, they can be a useful talking point during interviews and a way to showcase your willingness to go beyond what’s required of you.

Given the demanding nature of ISB’s curriculum, it can be hard to make time for competitions. One approach that has worked for some of us is to choose competitions that are aligned to our career goals and invest time in events that offer greater learning value. This also helped us stay updated with the economic and political developments around the world , and truly speaking we can now give Wikipedia a tough competition 

Don’t spread yourself too thin. The numbers will be different for each one of us, but try to strike a balance between breadth across a number of events and intensity of effort in each one of them to maximize your takeaways and wins. Trust , you will enjoy every bit of the grind and the pressures to keep up with the timelines. At least, for us, we started enjoying participating and winning . For us , it provided the adrenaline rush to see ISB s name on top of the list across the various national platforms.

ISB is filled with incredibly talented folks from diverse backgrounds, and every competition has varying demands. It is very easy to make the mistake of staying within your comfort zone and targeting competitions with the same set of 2-3 friends. By doing this, not only do you reduce your chances of winning, you also miss out on the opportunity of collaborating with classmates who you may otherwise never have a chance to work with.

A final word of caution: competitions can be intense and involve a lot of hard work. Take up group events only when you are absolutely sure of your commitment to the task. Leaving your team mates hanging and not showing up when the team needs you is completely unacceptable. The bonds that you build with your classmates and the reputation that you hold among your peers are the biggest takeaways you will have in your ISB journey. Do not risk losing it by a show of insincerity and indifference.

Work together and carry forward the glowing name of ISB. There’s no feeling like the winning feeling, and at ISB winning is a habit. So, as the title suggests, you need to believe that you’ve hit the F1 circuit and speed is just a number …

Go break the limits !!!!
