Hey all,

Just a query. What constitutes a candidate as P1 or P2 ?

Does Bits pilan hyderabsd campus come.under that category ?

My acads,

Graduation : 8.12
12 th :91.4
10th : 90.5

My interview went okay, was able to answer all the questions they had asked and they seemed satisfied.

I have an overall of 3 yrs.work experience started as a developer and work as a customer success manager now. All.3 yrs have been in Startups.

Let me know if I stand a chance.
Thank you :)

You're P1 for sure where P1 here refers to best set of candidates

How does the ISB admission process work?

If you are applying to ISB and wondering about your chances of getting into ISB Mohali campus or Hyderabad, it would help you to understand how the Adcom will slot you into P1, P2, P3 and P4.

The coding scheme might give you the impression that the odds increase or decrease along with the numbers. But that’s not how it works. Here’s a lowdown on each of them, in a jumbled up order (for a reason).


Category P3:

This is the dream profile for ISB. Elite undergrad college (like IIT), very high GMAT score (770-780), excellent accomplishments in all spheres, impressive extracurriculars.

Unless you’ve really messed up in one of the key areas (described in the next section) you can be confident of getting interviewed by ISB admissions officer.


Category P1:

This is where the diversity candidates will be pooled together. Despite being the top B-school in India, ISB doesn’t have the same cultural diversity that European or American or even other Asian bschools (like NUS) offer.

The next best thing they can do is to look for differentiated backgrounds from unconventional professions. If you have a sports, NGO, military, creative background, good for you.

Back it up with a strong GMAT and some strong ISB essays and you can expect an interview call.


Category P2:

All you IT Male Engineers working in technology and software companies, this is where you’ll be housed. The good news is that you are still in the race. The bad news is that you have lots of company.

If you read the resume of any random competitor from the P2 group, you might feel like he copied your CV. Tough life!

Can you narrate a story that’s different from all the other applicants who also have your background? That’s the only way to make an impact.


Category P4:

This is the only category where the number signifies the position in the category listing. Applicants with a very low GMAT score who also have nothing special to write home about would be ‘dumped’ into (one step before the politely worded formal rejection goes out).

If you happen to be in this pool, the odds of getting dinged are very high. The only hope is if you can pull out a rabbit from your hat and convince the MBA admissions committee that you deserve a seat despite the lacklustre application.


What the ISB Admissions Committee looks for

Irrespective of the category you fall in, you will be judged on 3 aspects:

Academics: This covers the familiar territory of undergrad performance (GPA, percentage) and MBA entrance exams like GMAT.

Leadership: Here’s where your professional accomplishments along with all that you’ve done outside work (extra-curriculars) will get evaluated.

Interview: ISB wants to see if all the facts and figures you submitted is backed by an effective and impressive personality as well.

Here’s how ISB’s 4 P’s (inspired by the 4P model of marketing?) stack up against each other:

Your odds of getting into ISB are as follows:
P3 > P1 > P2 > P4
In terms of the number of applicants, the order changes:
P2 (2000) > P3 (1000) > P1 (500) > P4 (300)


Will your ISB application chances plummet if you aren’t in P3?

Nope. Keep in mind that the P3 guys who apply to ISB also aim for the top international schools including Harvard, Stanford and Wharton. Adcoms know that the odds of their joining is still a question mark, even if they get an offer from ISB. So apart from dangling goodies (like ISB scholarships), the admissions committee needs to take the remaining 3 categories seriously too.

To cut a long story short, depending on which P you fall in, the queue may be short or long.

So, mind your P’s and Queues!

Your acads are brilliant you are on par with standards set by IIM - Bangalore. So with a good interview your chances of getting in are great. Applied with a friend last year and he's from Pilani and now he's a current student there

My doubt.
IIMs award marks to workex linearly based on number of years of work experience, with maximum marks for 2/3years of experience. How does ISB do that.
Will candidates with 4.5 yrs get full marks and others with decreased marks .
Sunce I have 3 yrs experience, will I get 66% of the maximum marks?

You are comparing apples with oranges. For ISB there is no such marking, more of the grading is on what impact you have done in your roles etc
ISB is more a global program as it accepts GMAT and has different standards


What you said is not true because if that's the case we would all be applying may be 5-7 years later b/c we'd get max marks. ISB looks for candidates with different years of work ex and yes if a person with 10 years and you happen to be batch mates it is because you are a fit to ISB

Just a word of caution for people attending in Bangalore. Be sure you're going to the right hotel. There were couple of people who went to wrong hotel. Make sure you know the exact location.

Reaching can be slightly tricky, so be sure of the route if you're driving.

Hi Talayva,

Let's do some analysis here...If you go through the ISB's class profile every year, you will find maximum number of candidates in the experience range of 3-6 years. and the number decreases subsequently.

You are in a very sweet spot as per the years of experience that you have.

All the Best !

Hey Talayva

Yes, I did consider that.

If you go through the ISB class profile on their website, the average work experience is 4.2

You are in a perfect work experience range to apply and make it to the class of ISB. Please go through the official data points on ISB website and it will be clear, feel free to reach out any additional queries.

Average GMAT is 709

All the Best !

Hello everyone,

Quick question - post the interviews, does ISB send acceptances letters on a rolling basis, or will they all be sent out on the same day i.e., Nov 15, 2018?

Thanks!
