Ofcourse, and given the way ISB screwed up interviews last year, I dont think any of us can speculate what going to happen next but wait for the results.
Fun Fact: among the massive speculations of Fee hike for the upcoming session. ISB has still not released the revised Fee Schedule !!


Yeah I was just voicing collective speculations so to say

Only 1200!!!
Are you sure of the number ?
Because close to 800 have been interviewed at Delhi,Bangalore and Mumbai only.
And I think people from North of Delhi would go to Mohali for interviews and the eastern and Central Eastern population to Hyd.
And not to forget the Skype interviews as well !

That's not the number that I am estimating. This was the number given by the current students who signed up for reviewing applications. They were told by the adcom. I have nothing more to add

Does anyone know the admission statistics of ISB. How many apply and what percentage of students are called for interviews and are finally admitted.

As far as I know ISB statistics generally stand around 8-9:5:1
For every 8-9 applicants, around 5 get called for an interview and out if them 1 is selected.

However, I couldn't find this data on any official document or website, this is as was told by the alums/blogs.
However, data might not be very relevant in the present scenario given that ISB has advanced its deadlines and now that they also take GRE scores.


This does not look promising. Why such a low proportion of interview to converts? Shouldn't ISB do a better job at eliminating irrelevant profiles at a much earlier stage. Will save them a lot logistically. :P


Ha ha!

A lot depends on what they value- good that they meet more candidates. Of course a lot more can be known by meeting a person. It must be making their job more difficult but there is every merit in interviewing more candidates. Some schools interview all candidates.

Good luck!

[quote="NikhilBansal91"]Also, I have not heard of anyone getting interviewed between 1-10 Nov.. seems like a marketing gimmick
I interviewed on 1st Nov in Mohali.

Of course the interviews are going on.
Its just a matter of reach, a very large chunk of the applicants are not active here. Out of those are, more than half never participate in the discussions.
For example have a look at the Decision Tracker Stats, people do not update it.


Well, there were quite a few updates about mum, delhi, Bangalore interviews. So it's not entirely what you are saying. But that said, interviews are happening as Nikhil just mentioned

Anyway, I don't want to stretch this conversation. I just talked about different possibilities.[/quote]Actually there are not many people getting interviewed at Mohali. On my interview day, there were only 4 names in the list. So you can just add 50 odd people for the entire Mohali duration to whatever estimate you have arrived at for other cities. Even 50 would be an over estimate in my opinion.

Hey All,

ISB's current ROI is the lowest among the top B schools in the world. (Ratio of avg placement to tuition fees is the least among top 30 colleges).

Do you guys think ISB will be a feasible option if they further increase the already obnoxiously high tuition fees? I am not looking it for short term; even for long term it doesn't seem to be a rational option. Will be great if people on this forum can share their views about this. Thanks!

Yes I believe applicants are now aware of this. That is why this time no. of applicants was Less and they extended deadlines. Turn out at interviews was not also convincing. Increasing fees won't go in favour of isb

My 2 cents.

I totally second that, but the thing is India is a young country and given the current scenario[Visa Issues in US & UK and the job market in the rest of the world], I still think ISB is a safe bet.

Issue with Indian applicants is their Pre-MBA salaries. While, the ROI is on the lesser side, the salary increase post-mba is still a good to go factor for many Indian applicants. And with close-knit social system, many(myself included) would like to work in or close to India & competition through CAT is not going to come down anytime soon.

So the only point of concern for ISB will be the fee amount at which the ISB applicants will start equating the fee amount with the risk in US and Europe and start moving out.

If I correctly remember, that person mentioned it is 35 (for class of 19) so plus 3 would make it 38. Maybe this is an all in cost
