Just got the mail....Campus: Mohali

Is there any way to request them for a change in campus?


Hi there,

I was also allotted Mohali campus during early decision round and I tried really hard for a campus change. But, they don't entertain such requests. So, welcome to Mohali

4th time Re-Applicant- Indian IT male, Admitted to ISB
Hi folks on this forum, I guess now is the time to share my interview experience. For my previous ISB interview, chack my signature where I got rejected ! This time my interview happened over Skype. I opted for Mumbai but had to travel to Oslo, Norway for an official assignment. So here it goes:

Interview was around 11:00 AM IST which meant 6:30 AM in Oslo. I woke up at around 5:30 AM and was set for the interview. At the scheduled time, I got a call over skype. It was known that I had to call them as well . So idea was to have video over skype and for audio , the normal phone line.

I was having a office laptop so I could not install skype in that. Although I had it in my phone. Soon when I got Skype call on my phone from ISB, and when I tried to dial in, I got to know at a time, calls can be made either through skype line or normal phone line. First Blunder.

I thought then to use, the web version of skype in my laptop and continue using phone line as usual. But adding to misery, my laptop screen said: Installing updates ( 30 % complete) , Don’t turn off your computer. Man, I thought I was gone and it was panic situation for me. In all this chaos, ISB folks were on video and were seeing me.

They were kind enough to understand the situation and agreed to continue over skype for both audio and video. Then it all started, meanwhile time lapsed :6-8 mins. There were 3 people, 2 Alums (A1, A2) and 1 from Adcom. (P1). A1 and P1 interacted with me most while A2 was observing and spoke only once.

A1: So ,tell us what your profile is and what are you looking to get in ISB?
Me: Explained this..mixed up lot of things but was mostly crisp.

A1: What are you doing in Oslo?
Me: I told purpose of my visit and nature of engagement.

A1: How your work is benefitting the client and asked about my profile in detail (roles/responsibilities etc)
Me: I explained but he responded I am not getting your answer. He asked me to explain in detail and in layman language. I told about automation stuff in project to which he replied: don’t you think so this is indeed cutting down workforce for your company, how it is beneficial for your firm. Explained in detail. Now P1 interrupted.

P1: That’s all fine, tell me what is the main revenue generation aspect in Norway( As I was in Oslo)
Me; Answered something.

P1: Why Norway is part of Scandinavian group?
Me: I thought it was a GK test and somehow answered this, although not fully perfect.

A1: So you have been doing lot of stuff in your current organization, Why MBA and Why now?
Me: Was prepared, answered this. Lot of cross questioning. He emphasized all that you want to achieve could be done through external courses. Why MBA? And when I explained , he said I why don’t you try for IIM 1 year program , why ISB? Explained this as well.

P1: What is your role in startup?
Me: (I mentioned I have been associated with a startup) Explained my role. Then he asked what will happen to startup when I ‘ll leave it for ISB? Explained. Then he asked stats, revenue model and our break even scenario. He countered that similar products are in market, what’s different. Explained. Cross questioned a lot around it.

A1: Interrupted and asked, how can it be possible you are not working full time for that startup but have been involved in so many things there?
Me: Explained.

P1: Your post MBA goals don’t seem to be aligned with your profile?
Me: I was totally clueless at this point. I literally sat with a frozen view. Somehow explained my goals. I was dead nervous at this point.

A2: (Here that folk spoke and that too in sarcastic way): So you think at ISB you will be able to achieve all these?
Me: I told him, its’ not only about academics but the overall experience and journey will help me to inculcate those skills.

A1: Any questions?
Me: I asked a question.

P1: Why did you asked this question, how are you/ your goals are related to this?
Me: Explained that.

P1/A1: Thanks for your time and enjoy your weekend in Oslo. I asked for apologies for initial hiccups, they said it’s all fine.

Overall the panel was quite cooperative. I believe it’s all about being true to yourself because be sure you will be cross questioned around Why MBA and your goals. Be thorough with your application, what you have written in essays and don’t try to fake, ISB alums and Adcom are one of the sharpest minds, so no point in trying to fool them around. Rest, have confidence and faith in yourself even if you feel low at any point during the interview.

PS: It’s important for me to mention the team behind Strategy4Gmat (http://strategy4gmat.com/isb-admissions/). I owe this interview to them. The team behind strategy4gmat makes sure that you are fully prepared for the interview.
@strategy
For someone like me, who have experienced good number of B-School interviews before this (although all with rejections) trust me, in my first mock I was presented with some basic flaws in my interviews. They make sure that what you are saying is in sync with your application and connect the dots between your short term and long term goals, which I believe is very important. The feedback sessions, post mock interviews helped me a lot.

In my previous applications, I did try other consultants who make big claims to have all ISB alums on their board and what not. (You name it and I did tried that) But take my words, the services and work by team behind strategy4gmat is exceptional.
They are so connected with student and ensure you admit as their personal goals. Regular follow ups and reminders helped me to never lose focus. I also took their help in the application essays as well. Right from making the essays crisp to helping me to brainstorm around idea to make my profile unique inspite of being from an over represented pool, they played a big role. For aspirants looking help in their essays/interviews, don’t hesitate to connect with them. (http://strategy4gmat.com/isb-admissions/)You won’t regret and that’s coming from someone who itself struggled 3 times before to get admit including one with interview where I was dinged.

Thanks for all the patience for reading the post. In case of any queries feel free to ping me. I’ll try my best to help you out.

Got in... Hyderabad campus Co2018.
First time applicant with a work ex of 5 years in the software industry.

I must take this opportunity to thank GyanOne. It was a wonderful experience to work with Rishabh and team and with their guidance i was able to highlight my strengths in the application in the best possible way . It was really helpful especially when the word limit is strict and you're from a vast pool of applicants.

Cheers !!

Hello to all Round 2 ISB aspirants,

I have been admitted to ISB Co 2018 in Round 1 and would like to put across a word for --------- Services. They are pretty experienced and great people to work with. They helped me make the entire process from application to interview stress free without leaving any stones unturned.

I strongly recommend ------- to those who are researching on essays or stuck up midway.
Cheers!!
