Afaik they would give out 300 interview calls, and they're lookin' to get a hundred each from final and pre-final year. If they roll out interview calls in the last week of September, with a minimum of a weeks notice, interviews could start around the 3rd of October. Which gives them 11 days till the 15th, not counting the Sundays. Which comes to a little over 27 interviews a day.

Not completely un-achievable.

What I'm trying to say I guess, worrying means you suffer twice. It's still okay if we haven't gotten the calls yet. :)


Hahaha
This made my day.
Thanks buddy!

The interviews will go on till 20th October. In our first rounds' application pdf, it is written in the schedule that interviews will take place from 20th September to 20th October. So I think they still have enough time. Btw are you sure that they'll call around 300 students for the interview?

Why are they making us wait so long? From the last 10 days or so, I'm doing nothing productive. Just waiting for the results :(

Those are tentative dates. And we've already seen them not go by it once. Also I don't think they will make their pool suffer because they want to stick to tentative dates. Pretty sure they will extend it forward.

The website says 15th sept to 15th october, but I guess the application pdf should take precedence, anyway, if that's true, all the more time for us, which means less reason to worry. :)

Also, yeah, in one of the webinars, they said 300 interview calls.

According to past data, they rolled out interview calls to 700-800 people. Around 70-80 got accepted on each of the previous years.

The past data available on the internet is not from any official source of ISB. What they say in the webinars is the most reliable information available. Also ISB's acceptance ratio (applicants to final admits) is over 20%, so I think what they said in the webinars about 300 students for interview must be true.

Hey. Hey. Chill out, everybody!
Relying on the data we have at hand, one thing is certain- they haven't started rolling the calls out, yet! Hence, no rejections, yet!

So, furthering the worry will only take a toll on your minds. An interview call will most likely be a surprise for all of you placing bets on it out there! It might happen today, or tomorrow. Or maybe the day after! But there's no point in not doing anything productive while anticipating.

They'll roll the calls when they're ready to; we can't do anything about it for now. In the meanwhile, get back to your routines', y'all! The last week of September has just started; you've gotta wait for the whole week to end before starting to worry a little more, maybe!

The more you worry, the more you're likely to reflect it in the interview, if and when it happens. Relax. ?

Might be true. I am an EEO admit. But I have friends who are YLP admits. And quite certainly, to them, the number 300 is too low. But again, in this case, the less, the merrier from a conversion point of view. :)

I just called, they said the interviews will start from the first week of October, and the calls will be made about a week prior to the interview. So may be in another 2 or 3 days they'll update the shortlist status.
