Hey guys! Had a couple of questions -
1. I am planning to apply to some US based programs as well and might not be able to squeeze in an R1 ISB app in time. Will R2 be a safe bet? Brief profile:
GMAT: 760 (Q50, V42)
Undergrad: CA with all-India ranks and CPA (US)
Work-ex: 4 years with Big-4 Mgmt Consulting in India
Extracurriculars: Decent

2. I plan to enter investment banking post-MBA. I do see Citi, Goldman, HSBC, and a few Indian banks in the Placement Report. However, can anybody clarify what kind of profiles do they offer?

Thanks a ton!

Hi there!

1. Yes, R2 is a safe bet, otherwise the b-school would not have offered it at all.
2. Talk to recent alumni and to the ISB admissions to connect you to a representative of the placement cell. Being realistic about your career goals and career options is very important.

@amba2013

If you are planning to apply for US based programs, then the most prudent thing to do would be to apply for ISB in R2 only.

If you apply to ISB in R1, you'll likely get the decision and the deadline to accept the offer well before your R1 applications decisions from the American schools come out, which will put you in a spot (unless of course ISB is your first choice)

Its my experience, I am wiser by hindsight now.
