Hello Current students,

In "Reason for leaving" character limit is 1000 words. Usually in most applications its just a line or 2 at max. How to use this much space??? should we explain our reasons also?? will 1 line show i was least interested in explaining reason or didn't use space properly??

Help needed

It’s to allow you to write the reason why you left the organisation. The extra space is to ensure that if you have a special or long reason to write about, you don’t fall short of space. A short answer doesn’t mean laziness or that you will be ignored. Don’t read too much into it.

It was mentioned in one of the webinar that only education related credentials need to be uploaded at the time of application. Work related documents will be verified at the time of interview. Can anyone from PGPX reconfirm about this?

Also do we need to submit acheivement certificates at this time?

I would suggest that you upload the experience letters (or joining and leaving and/or payslips) with the application.
There will be a verification again during interview and one more time if you join PGPX (at the time of induction).

For extra-curricular awards, just mention them. You can show them at the time of interview.

All the best

I would say good chance. Marks shouldn’t matter if you have a decent GMAT.

Hi,

1. Is this for PGP or PGPX?

2. If there are any PGPX guys there, I'd like to learn a bit more about the fact that neither of the degrees from IIMA are counted as post-graduation. Is this true?

2 a. If yes, does it mean that one can't go for a doctorate after the PGPX?

2 b. If no, why doesn't IIMA try dispelling this myth?

3. Is the campus big enough? How are the surroundings? What do you guys do to pass time? (I know it's cut-throat and jam-packed but still, you have to breathe). What is the party scene on campus? How happening is your life? Coming from an engineering background, I have come to expect certain leniency and even enthusiasm regarding booze and weed. Does IIMA figure in such metrics too? I know for a fact that IIMB is really cool and hip about such things.

I believe if you are rejected in R1 you cannot apply in R2. And, if you have applied again in R2 and got a call.... confirm with adcom about the scenario....
