Does ISB start inviting for interviews as soon as the application is complete or does it wait for the deadline to send out invites?

There is no hard and fast rule as to when interview invites are rolled out. Interview invites are sent out till the deadline.

They don't need a resume but they do need an online form to be filled with roles and responsibilities. When they print it, it looks like a resume.

So essentially, the resume is in their format and ever pointer has a character limit

FROM ISB Admissions Blog: Admissions FAQs
Here are some more commonly asked questions.

This should help you gain more clarity on your application to ISB.

1.       Is GMAT given more preference over GRE?

No. There is no preference given to one over the other. Both the exams would be weighted equally in your profile evaluation.

2.       What are the cut-offs for GRE and GMAT?

There are no cut-offs for either of the tests. The scores along with your essays and recommendations add weight to your application. However, we had applicants apply to us with a GMAT range of 600 to 780, and a GRE range of 303 to 334, in the past.

3.       Till when should the scores be valid? If your scores expire before the interview date is that ok?

Your scores need to be valid till your enrollment into the class. i.e. April 15, 2017 if you are applying to the Class of 2018. The application deadline however January 15, 2017

4.       What are the career opportunities post the PGP programme?

Last year, a total of 1151 offers were made by 297 companies which participated in the placements process.

Read more about the placement highlights here www.isb.edu/pgp/careers/placement-highlights

Read more about the placement trends here:  www.isb.edu/pgp/careers/placement-trends

5.       How do I submit the GRE scores as the test center doesn’t give you the same?

Applicants giving their GRE on January 15, 2017, can submit the GRE scores provided at test centre. Percentiles, if not available can be entered as 100.

Applicants who have not received their official GRE score report, can upload your GRE appointment letter under “Upload Documents” section. But ensure that you request your official score reports to be sent to ISB.

6.       What is the School code for GRE / GMAT

The school code for GRE is 7892, and for GMAT is N2D-J5-01

7.       Can I pick the campus I want to go to?

You may state your preference in your application, but the admissions team allocates the campus to maintain similar class cohorts to enhance peer learning.

8.       Will my chances of admissions or placements get affected by the campus I choose?

No. ISB follows a unified admissions and placement process for Class. The process is common for all and has no bearing on which campus you study or prefer.

If you have any more questions write to us at pgp@isb.edu

Good luck.

Fellow applicants,

How did you approach the first essay ?
I'm having a hard time figuring out the best way to go about this.
I can either elaborate on one significant achievement, where I took an initiative in the professional environment, and accomplished something.
OR
The above achievement, in lesser details, along with another quality/achievement. This way I will have two personal attributes to showcase, but I'm feeling that I am not doing justice to these experiences if I squeeze them together into the 400 word limit.

Would it better to use the second example in the 200 words essay ?

I'd be grateful for any thoughts/suggestions..

Slug, this will depend entirely upon the qualities you wish to talk about and corresponding examples. With tight editing you can use two examples.

Another approach could be to mention one quality and use more than one example to demonstrate it

I have applied in cycle 2..

The admission calendar says final offer date is March 5th.
I wanted to know,
1. Since there is no fixed date for announcement of result, how are shortlists communicated to the applicant
2. In case one gets shortlisted, are there any tentative interview dates declared, are interviews conducted on weekends ?

I am asking this question as I have some unavoidable work related commitment in the month of February.

In such cases, do they entertain skype interview for students within india ?

I have the same question. When does the school start sending interview invites after the application deadline? Can someone please answer this?

I think it's preferable to submit recommendation by deadline. But, it can be submitted after deadline
