HELP!!

A very weird ( but happy) thing happened with me. I was just checking my ISB application page out of curiosity of documents submitted and noticed that I have been shortlisted for interview on 21st Nov at 4:15 P.M. The weird thing is that it requires me to confirm for the interview by clicking on a link sent to me on email BUT I have not received any mail yet. I have checked in and out of the mail id but nothing. Although I am going to call them up first thing tomorrow morning ( about 12 hours from now) but still any other thing I should be doing??


Also guys do keep checking your application link just in case it happens to you too..

When do we get the rejects from isb usually??
Just wondering whether I should give more importance to the interview prep or applying to other colleges in the second round.
Please share your opinion.


Saurabh,

If a person is not shortlisted for the interview, then the notification comes around one week before the deadline.
If the rejection is after the interview, then the mails come one day after the acceptance mails. But it can easily be made out if the acceptance mail does not come.

Regarding the preparation, interview preparation goes hand in hand with your application submission.
You get clear on your goals and about yourself. The essays make you clear about various team and leadership situations that are asked.

So, start writing the apps for R2 as you need sufficient time to put forth a good application.
If not, suddenly you might find yourself in a place where you would not have enough time to submit a good application.
Also, I hope this does not happen, but if you do not get the call, try to find out your mistakes. You can take some one's help too for this.

Hi All,

I am a re-applicant. In the process of preparing my application for R2.

I gave my GMAT again yesterday and scored 710.

Other details about me:
1. Work Exp - 6 yrs
2. Current Role - Business Architect
3. Industry - Manufacturing
4. B.E - 82%; 12th - 96%; 10th - 82%
5. International Experience - 24months

The last time my application was rejected (2012) the reasons given to me were
1. Low GMAT Score - 660 was my score previously
2. Not enough experience - 2.5 years was my experience when i applied last time.
3. Essays are not strong enough.

I need help with my essays now. Could someone please provide some guidance on how to approach the essays? I was able to find some material online, but they are damn generic.
Also is it wise to ask for help from a app help company for the essay preparation?

Hi Muthu,

We can help you with your application preparation. Reach out to me at the email address below if you are interested.

I am just wondering if you are still going to be a reapplicant. It seems you applied more that 2 years ago.

I had my interview on 7th hyd ..I was quite busy on business travel and could not get to post this sooner. But first I want to congratulate all those who got interview invites and wish good luck to those still waiting for them!

I benefited a lot from this forum (especially during my gmat preparation) and want to take this opportunity to thank you all for contributing to collectively running this forum.


I am a re-applicant .. Indian IT male..GMAT 710

4.5+ years in Healthcare+Consulting+IT . I felt my interview went well. it started with my introduction and then went into my work. I was questioned a bit here. Then it went into why isb and why mba and why this goal ..the usual questions you expect.It may have taken 25mins..dont remember the time.

I think the most important thing is to spend time on what you are and where you want to go..once this is clear..after that it is just a matter of putting words to your thoughts.

Pls PM me if you have any specific queries or to connect with me if you are waiting for the result just like me!

Hyderabad interviews usually happen over the weekends and go on till the weekend before the result date.
So you can expect an invite anytime before 13th Dec.

All the best!
