There were approx 320 interviews in Delhi evenly spread across three days. I found out from the attendance sheet during my long wait at the interview. If others can find out the same from their city , we can have a pretty good estimate at the ratio.


65 interviews in one day in Hyderabad . 12 weekends
65*12 approximately

How important are Gmat scores post interview? Do they really play a big role in final convert? Is there a correlation between the score and your workex?

gambit1992 A standard answer will be your whole profile matters aka it's a holistic score aka we look for well rounded individuals aka gmat score is only a small part of the picture.... So i would just keep calm and wait for the result day.

Hey 1:8 is the final selection ratio. Around 4k might be called for interview.


They just got 1200 applications in round one this year. I have a couple of friends studying there currently who confirmed

To be honest, chances are bleak. I was waiting for a call myself before I finally got the call on 10th night (for 13th Delhi). During that time, a friend from IsB asked the adcom if they will be inviting people from Delhi. Adcom confirmed that 99% of the people from Delhi who they want to interview will get interviewed between 12 and 14 oct.

There will always be at least one alum from your industry! But, yae agreed, profile matters.


Not necessary. None of the alums who interviewed me had any exp in investment banking.

My interview was pretty straight forward

2)Why MBA, why now and why isb (10 mins )
3)How will you contribute
4)Asked me to elaborate on the initiative I led for an ngo
5) Ahobby
6)Any questions for us

My interview lasted for 40 mins, of which 10-12 mins them answering the question I asked them

Had an additional question: What did you ask the interviewers? If you might care to share.


Reflect deeper. I am sure you will be able to come up with one intelligent question you really want to ask some an alum

I called them and they said they had limited slots in delhi so we may call you to hyderabad.


My profile is as follows:

GMAT: 730
Undergrad: BITS Pilani
Work Ex: 3 years as the Operations Head in an early stage startup

So I am really surprised that I did not even get an interview invite. Anyway, hoping i do get one from hyderabad or mohali.

Ah!
I was told what I wrote by the adcom there. But, I guess, anything is possible

R1 is 30 percent of the total applications. I guess that's a decent number. R2 will be around 4000. So the total applicants is around 5000 approximately. At 8:5 ratio that should come to 3000 interview invites. Heard that selectivity at isb is around 22% of total applications. As their total intake is 900, that should make it 3000:900 ratio. That's for both Hyd and Mohali campuses.
