An important announcement!



Hi All,

We have collaborated with the ISB admissions team and will be having a Chat session with Mr. Rupesh Bisht.
Here is a snapshot of his profile at ISB.

"Rupesh Bisht heads PGP International marketing and the Young Leaders Programme at ISB. He is Associate Director with Admissions and Financial Aid Department at ISB and also an alumnus from the class of 2009."

Timings for the session: 8.00 pm IST on 15th September 2015.

By that time, all the people applying in R1 must have completed a significant portion of their essays and some might be on the verge of submitting the application. Collect all your questions and get them clarified from Mr. Bisht.

Add this event to your Google Calendar.




All the best! and happy essays writing :)

Hi, I am applying to ISB this for the 2016 intake as well.
Does anyone know the evaluator/recommendation questions to be asked to our employer this year.
I have found the questions from previous year online, but could'nt find anything for this year.
This would be helpful when approaching my manager for the recommendation. Thanks in advance.

I have 2 queries :

2> While making login Id, I have filled finance & Marketing as my preference, I want to change it into General Management. I checked everything in application box but I couldn’t find anything.

1> Need -base scholarship : Fill this section only if you are applying for an ISB need-based waiver, the diversity waiver, the ISB-AIESEC waiver and the Bridge to India scholarship.
I want to know if I am eligible for this scholarship. If I go to college I have means of income resource, my parents are not working and they are dependent on my brother.

Ask your manager to download them and share them with you.
for him to have access, you will need to submit his official ID on the application portal

Hello everyone.
Does anyone know what the questions are in the evaluation form. Based on the questions one can provide some guidelines for the recommender to
write complete the evaluation. I dont see the evaluation form available on the portal. Anyone who has the link?

See this link: ISB class of 2016 profile at ISB website

According to this, the average GMAT is 700 for the entire class. Breakups also available by campus, but they are pretty similar.

Hi Folks

I gave my GMAT today. My sectional scores were 47/35 with an overall score of 670.
Overall Exp - 3.5 yrs Mech Engg - Aerospace Domain
Is it prudent to apply for ISB - R1 now or shall I apply in R2 with enhanced score if I am able to increase my score to say 700.
Does anyone of you know people who have been shortlisted/selected at this score?

While people do get selected at 670 as well (and lower scores too), those cases are more the exception rather than the norm. You should try and raise your score further, even if it means applying in R2. As an engineer, you would probably be strong at Quant and should look to raise that to Q49/Q50. Even if verbal remains the same (though you should try to raise that too slightly), Q50 V35 will still take you to an overall 700.

Hi Ankur, GyanOne, etc.

It'll be great if you guys could help with my application.

I have a 730 on GMAT (Q49, V40, AWA6, IR 8). I work with knowledge centre of one of the three big consulting firms (BCG, McK, Bain) as an Associate in consulting dept. I have worked on various research and consulting cases off-shore (never directly interacting with client). I'll have a full time experience of 2 years and 9 months if I join ISB next year.

I majored in Business Studies and graduated from Delhi University with 80%. I had >80% in 10th and 12th as well.

Always had good extra-curriculars.

1. At work: Part of employee training team ( took quite a bit of initiatives) and annual events team (responsible for company's annual events)
2. At college: I was president of the dramatics society (one of the most successful teams of Delhi University), organized quite a few events at national scale, won numerous awards, founded the sports society of college, organized outbound excursions, etc.

Apart from this, I love travelling and I plan to start my venture in the travel space after graduating and look to start more ventures in other industries as a long term goal.

Questions:

1. How well do you think I am positioned for ISB? Should I also apply to global schools? (People in the past from my office with similar position have gone to LBS, Kellogg, etc but with more experience)

2. For essay number 1, I was thinking of writing one of my achievements from college as it was significant and changed my outlook towards life? Does it make sense or should I stick to something more recent (which are not that substantial)?

Thanks in advance,
Sanchit

Hi Sanchit

You are very well positioned for ISB. You can also apply to global schools, but schools like Kellogg, LBS, and INSEAD (as examples) generally like to see a bit more experience (including some international experience) and leadership, though that is of course a general statement. Some research centers also have have the option of moving to the consulting side after a while, and that might be a significant advantage in case it is available/will be available, in case you are planning to apply to global schools later in your career.

For essay 1, ISB is open to all topics, including personal themes (as they say in the essay question itself). However, you should focus on the impact you had and what it shows about you, not just on the fact that the incident changed your outlook about life. Show clearly how it differentiates you as a candidate to ISB.
