Got my offer letter as well this morning ! The wait has been killing me; especially that email on Thursday night saying we will have an answer on Friday ... and then nothing...

Congrats Danieliv and Ruhm, I guess we will see us in August! Do you have any knowledge of a FB group that has already been created for the SIM 2015 intake?

Just got my offer letter as well! Such a painful wait! danieliv I am Taiwanese too! :)

How does everyone planning to look for an apartment? I am not currently in Europe, so it could be difficult. nestpick.com seems to offer an easier solution, but the pruces are also a bit high. If anyone can recommend a site to look for WG, i'd appreciate it. Thanks!

Congrats everybody !

I believe the programme usually creates an official SIM FB group. I can create one tonight if there is no group already.

I would say this year's intake averages around slightly above 23 (at the start of the programme).

Hi, I am wondering who is preparing to apply for the SIM. I am already looking forward to the SIM Master next year, because it is really a great program

Got a 770 in the GMAT :-D and I am now doing the Bachelor on Business Administration in St. Gallen. Fighting to get the 5.5 (At the moment I have it), which would mean that I get directly accepted. Do you know if 5.45 is rounded up to 5.5?

I am both Swiss and Costarican and lived 14 years in Costa Rica and have already a master in chemistry from ETHZ. I was in charge of the quality control in a small industrial company for 9 months and I am now doing an internship in strategic purchase while doing my bachelor thesis on supplier evaluation.

I am glad to hear from my probable future fellow students. If somebody needs to know something about St Gallen, I am glad to help



Hi. I wanted to know what is the average GMAT score required? I am taking my GMAT in three days time and I need to know if I should put this college. My current practice scores are in the range of 680-710. It'll be awfully helpful if you could provide some knowledge. My GPA is 3.05/4. So are there any specifications?

St Gallen SIM is the world's top MiM program according to FT rankings.
Before talking about your profile, let me take you quickly through the admission procedure of St Gallen-
1. Online Application
2. Pre-assessment (The Pre-Assessment consists of different parts: numerical reasoning, verbal reasoning and inductive-logical reasoning.)
3. Assessment with CEMS corporate partners- The assessment centre consists of four parts:
Presentation
Case study
Group discussion
Interview
4. Admission- Students evaluated to possess a suitable CEMS profile are admitted
5. School for semester abroad- After final acceptance of the student, the CEMS partner school for one semester abroad is allocated.


For more information about St Gallen's SIM, you can click here- http://www.mim-essay.com/st-gallen-mim-review/

Finally, let us come to the point and evaluate your profile.

You GPA is the only information objectively provided by you- which is extremely difficult to give a good evaluation of your profile. Even if you get a 680+ GMAT, still there are many factors which should be taken into account to evaluate your profile.
Essays- Letter of motivation strongly connecting all relevant experiences to your application and career goals.
If applicable, good description of your work experiences.
Co-curricular activities- whether or not relevant to your career goals, show the various traits and qualities of your personality.
These 3 points would complete the information needed to evaluate your profile. Assuming that apart from your good GPA and GMAT score you also are able to produce good results on these 3, your chances at St Gallen would be appreciable.

For exact evaluation, you can go for Free professional profile evaluation at -http://www.mim-essay.com/mim-profile-evaluation/

Hope this helped. Good luck

The SIM and CEMS are two different things, and the admissions system is somewhat different :wink:

The admission criteria has changed completely this year. Has anyone already done the video interview? If so, any thoughts?

The interview asks roughly 6 questions, giving you varied time to prepare and answer, for example 30 sec to 1 min prep time, and 2 mins to answer.
Questions range from Why St Gallen to questions to test you thinking, such as opinion based questions.

Overall just prepare a bit with a few mock interviews, get comfortable with the whole process and you should be fine.
They dont expect perfect answers, just want to see how you handle yourself and if you fit in with the core values of St. Gallen.
