We should just focus on the interview practice, fingers crossed!!


Yeah I guess so. Anyone got any idea how a Skype interview is gonna be like . Are they going to grill more or is it going to be relatively easy ?

Also , if anyone would like to exchange applications and start asking quizzing each other to prepare for the interview let me know . I need a partner in interview preparation.

Well, on 27th February 2016, I had my interview on Skype. There was no one-word essay concept for me. Before the interviews, I read up the experiences on GmatClub, PagalGuy and everyone mentioned that the interviews were generally 30-60 min long. However, for me, it was just 15 minutes. I felt I had answered all the questions confidently and correctly but I was skeptical of the fact that they didn't grill me. Anyway, got the admit 14 days later. So, all cool :)

Another reminder to everyone, PM me if you need the interview debriefs. (P.S. I run an educational consulting platform which has seen 100% success rate for interviews this year, but I won't do any marketing on a public thread. :) )

Congrats on the invite guys :-) Are they rolling out invites region wise?


yes


And I guess they have started with Hyderabad


For the first wave, they have called people from different cities to Hyderabad. I know a few people from Kolkata and Bhopal who got invited to Hyderabad. And, a few more who are based out of Hyderabad.

Congrats everyone who got the calls!!

looks like the high scorers have been shortlisted for the inaugural interviews!!

Way to go!

Meanwhile...extreme anxiety here!!!


Not necessarily unless you are calling 680+ a high score. I know 4 people (680,690,710,720) who have their interviews on Saturday and Sunday at Hyderabad. Two based out of Kolkata and the other two based out of Hyderabad.


yeap I agree, Its location wise and not score-wise. Hyderabad invites have been rolled out as of now, in line with the schedule of Hyderabad slot being the first.

I just realised, I misplaced one letter in a 4 letter acronym (although I wrote the correct full form) mentioned in my essay. How likely is that to be a problem in getting an interview invite?

Unless it's a very famous acronym, I don't think it should be an issue. However, in one of the webinars, an adcom member specifically said - "no grammatical errors, it shows us that you are not serious"...

But acronym is ok in my opinion, since you wrote the full form as well.

I can only hope that in reading thousands of essays, they don't notice it.

I'd be highly surprised if they reject your application JUST for that reason. Then again, there's no way to know. Personally, I think the adcoms understand that these things happen. Don't worry about it!

Of all the schools i have applied to, I find ISBs interview process quite irritating and stupid
Sending out invites one by one without giving a choice to select a slot is very unprofessional

In case any ISB alum/current students see this post, I request them to let the adcom know of our frustration. Afterall ISB is not the only college we are applying to!!

Guys, I don't think you'll know before next week Monday, they won't tell you before 5 days from the interview date.
