Hi Guys,

I was just wondering if anyone had any insight on ISB's selection process.
I was rejected for 2020 batch in R2 but here's what I do know:

My profile:
- Digital Marketing for 2+ yrs
- Pro-bono work with a start up
- Volunteer work with an NGO
- GMAT - 670

2 Alums conducted my interview and one of them connected with me on LinkedIn and told me that they gave a positive go-ahead from their side.

My friends who got in have different profiles - family business, lesser GMAT score than mine etc.

So I was just curious as to why I might have been rejected? Any thoughts?

I'm in the same pool (R1 reject). As much as it would be great that ISB starts accepting reviewing rejections, it's very difficult to tell with their process.

Normally how things proceed is that if they had sufficient number of Digital Marketing grad in shortlist and if they had higher GMATs, the person with lower count might get rejected despite great applications and experience.

This is the entire reason why people keep pitching diversity - some amazing POR in college or some great track record with promotions are a couple of things I have seen do the trick.

Rest assured, it's all a competitions with your selective pool (digi mar) and how many they think they want in the batch.

This is only what I have found out till now. Take it with a pinch of salt.
