Anyway, I don't want to stretch this conversation. I just talked about different possibilities.


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 !!


Hello,

I am sorry, my question is very late. How did ISB screw up interviews last year?

Really curious to know. Thanks.

Can somebody also shed some light on how is the scholarship awarded and what is the probability of somebody getting one? What was the minimum score(I have seen a 740 getting a full waiver) to which merit based scholarship was provided last year or stats like that?


My friend who has a 760 got 15% last year

Posted from my mobile device


That means 5 lacs? Seems pretty low for a 760 guy.


I may be repeating the obvious but there is nothing like "5 lacs for a 760 guy"...there are so many factors that go into the decision. I know of guys whow didn't even get an admit with similar scores.

Generally speaking, AFAIK, ISB is not very scholarship friendly.

So the ISB website claims that the result will be declared November 2018, ie: this month.

Not sure why folks are presuming that it will be Nov 15 specifically, unless they know something that is not mentioned online.

Had a small doubt:

I got the interview call 3 days before the interview. Does that rank me lower to applicants who got the calls 5-7 days prior?

Resurfacing the discussion about fees - How credible is the source that says fees will be hiked this year? I see PGP Pro and PGPMAX have the same fees this year as it was the year before that. Don't see any reason why PGP should see a hike.

Also, in 2012 fees was 20L + taxes with average package of 18 LPA. Last year 35L + taxes with average package of 22 LPA seems like a red flag to me. This pattern is pretty consistent over the years. How do ISB hopefuls feel about this?

Credible- Not at all. those all are just speculations !!!

I think almost everyone will agree that a fee hike wont do any justice, given that median salary has not changed much!
Also, with the ever increasing class size, I am not much hopeful of any increase in mean salary.

Is a candidate eligible for ISB if he has already graduated this year?

Well, fees has already went from 26 to 34 in a time span of 2-3 years which is pretty significant hike in itself.

Forget mean salary since it is driven by a lot of factors. What is worrisome is that 85% of the class gets placed at less than 25 lakhs(an alumni from co2017 told me this). And 50% at less than 20.
