Here is my interview experience, if its still of anyone's use:

Reached almost an hour early, there were almost 8-10 candidates for mine and the next slot. It's good to be early as you get comfortable with the atmosphere and the nervousness takes a back seat, at least till you are with the panel.

Coming to the interview...it was almost 15-20 mins later than the allotted time. I was called by an alumni, greeted nicely. There were 3 alumni.

In a matter of 10 secs we were on the questions. First was, tell us about yourself. They eagerly listened to me, so glad.

Then they asked about my ventures and I hope I answered satisfactorily. I had prepared well, but somehow I was quite nervous even though the atmosphere was as friendly as it can get.

After a couple of questions about my work, they asked about short term goal, what role am looking for and my knowledge about it.

Please read about this well. It looks like just another question but they can get into the details of the role and your research in it.

Next they asked about my extra curricular that I had mentioned. How I made a difference in a situation. Impact etc.

And then a few questions to test my presence of mind, my opinion of the industry I was targeting in short term.

They asked me why I want to do one year course. How does it fit, and why a 2nd MBA. I had prepared well for this, I don't know if they were happy with my answer as there was no reaction at all and no cross questions.

Lastly they asked me if I had any questions. I asked. And one of them answered on behalf of all, very nicely and succinctly.
The interview lasted for up to 30 mins. I didn't see the time when I entered but had a fair idea.

Overall, the panel is friendly and aren't looking for faults. They were looking for a match between essays and me. I hope I didn't leave a gap there.
I don't know how it went, there was hardly any emotion there except for nodding while I answered. And a couple of smiles to make me comfortable.

Those experienced can tell me what to take away. As there was almost no cross questioning. I am so anxious now.

Tips for future candidates: prepare your interview per your essays, short term plan. The importance of these can not be over expressed! I didn't make a questionnaire out of my essay, but I think this will make you super confident to tackle questions and you will look genuine. Confidence is the key. Practice practice practice!!!

All the best!!

I wrote my graduation percentage as 68 while it is 71. Noticed it during my interview. I have already written multiple mails and called so many times to the admission's team and have received no reply. :/ Does anybody know if this can impact a lot and how do I get this corrected.

It will hardly make a difference. Don't worry about it...I think you can resolve it once you're admitted. ☺

Hey guys,

Good luck for the decisions!

Once you get the admit, please send your admit letter to sarthak.pandey1994@gmail.com and/or abhirup_ab@yahoo.com.

We will add you to the ISB Co2019 group. We already have some seniors, YLP and EEO admits in the group.

Cheers and good luck!

One more week of waiting, I guess then!

Did everyone receive the email? Anybody here who did not? I have neither received the result, nor any intimation about the postponement/expected date.

Yes, I received the mail too on Nov 30th.

I'm wondering if all the people who applied for the need-based waiver and got interviewed received the mail or just a few?

Hi,
I am new to this so please forgive me If this question appears to be stupid.
I am planning to give GMAT by Feb. and I am seeking admission for the 2019 batch through YLP. But on the ISB website I saw that there are 2 stages of admissions
Stage 1 has already closed, and the stage 2 closes in March. My First Question is are these deadlines for the YLP 2019 Intake????
Secondly, on December 2018, I will complete 2 years of professional Work Experience.
So does this mean that ,by my plan of giving the GMAT, I cant get entry through YLP and I have to take admission through Regular Intake??
Can't I apply in mid of 2018 i.e in October 2018 for the YLP intake of 2019?

Hi Suramya,

Firstly, YLP is an entry only for candidates who are currently pursuing their final year of the undergraduate degree. From my understanding of the information that you have given, you have been working from December 2016. This automatically rules you out from applying through the YLP route. However, you can apply through the usual PGP route. The EEO route is for candidates who have less than 2 years of work experience as on 31st March 2019 (although I am not sure about the exact cut off, you fall under the PGP route since you complete 2 years in December 2018)

Now coming to the two stages of admissions, there is no specific distinction between the two rounds other than the reason that a few seats will get filled up in the first stage. So the earlier you apply the better. Now coming to GMAT, You can write it at any time of the year at your convenience. The only thing that ISB checks is whether your GMAT score was submitted before the respective stage of admission that you have applied for.

Hope this helps
