Hi msingh77 and Pm091989,

The deadline to apply for Cycle 1 of Great Lakes PGPM 2017-18 is NOVEMBER 30, 2016.

Great Lakes accepts GMAT scores taken on or after 1st Jan 2014,and CAT, XAT, CMAT score of the last two years. At Great Lakes, we do not have fixed cutoffs and any minimum scores are decided on after the completion of the application process and review of the overall applicant pool. Since the applicant pool varies in number and quality every year, the cutoffs may vary as well.
As a broad indicator based on the past experience, 600+ score in GMAT would be considered suitable subject to meeting other criteria. This is however an indicative score and if we find an exceptional candidates with a relatively lower score, we may still consider the application. On the other hand we may reject a candidate with a high aptitude test score but with a poor track record in other areas.
So while the test scores are important, we emphasize more on selecting well-rounded candidates with a strong overall track record.

Hi msingh77,

Since the 2nd cycle deadline(along with score submission) is 24 January for now , we won't be accepting scores submitted after the deadline.

In case of any deadline extension till february(if any), you might be able to submit your score.

Hi mjmhtjain ,

The essay writing is basically to test you communication and articulation skills. So there is no specific agenda for essay writing. You may be asked to give your opinion on an ongoing HOT topic in the world/country, or you may be asked to justify your stand for a statement given statement etc. You dont have to specifically prepare for essay writing in my opinion.

For the PI round, you will mostly be asked from whatever is mentioned in your CV. If you know well about whatever you have mentioned in your CV, then your half work is done. There might be situational questions to check how well you handle/manage a particular situation etc.
Apart from your communication, your confidence, attire, attitude etc. will also be considered as a part of the overall profile-based interview round.

All the best !!

Hi Jibbi,

I have been shortlisted for the Essay/PI round and would like to know further. Will the essay and PIs be conducted simultaneously or is essay a shortlisting round before the PI? I have a relatively low GMAT score. What do you suggest is the best way to prepare in order to secure an admission as I am very keen to join this year. Also like kindly advise on the attire aspect of it. What is the generally accepted way of dressing?

Thank you.

Hi kaush91,

There is no further shortlisting once youbare called for GDPI round. After completion of the essay writing part, candidates will be called one by one for PI, depending on the number of panels.
Regarding the attire, you may walk in business formals or suit.
Be confident and be well-versed with your CV.

All the best!

Hi @asahu92 ,

Great Lakes does an overall profile based shortlisting.
You can apply in the PGPM second cycle. But getting shortlisted with a GMAT score of 570 will require you to have an excellent job profile, academics etc. (As part of the overall profile based shortlisting). The chances of getting shortlisted will depend more on your profile.
