Well I did not fill in any essay for scholarship my GMAT score was not exceptional either nor were my undergrad marks.. Although I do acknowledge my professional experience is quite good...Maybe that justifies the 15 lakh scholarship to compensate for a MOHALI admit.. I spoke to a lot of people about this situation.. The star faculty from the whartons, kelloggs which started off in Hyderabad will be all there at Mohali.. Mohali campus is apparently extremely awesome as well.,. The curriculum is same.. and for recruitment the student will have anonymity in campus while interviewing with the firms .. Yes everyone has equal access to the jobs with no mention of campus and you could be asked to fly between campuses if shortlisted for a job..So level playing ground.. additionally since it has fewer people the bonding is expected to be stronger.. The mix in terms of talent, diversity , gender is the same across both campuses.. So ALL good that way.. MY primary problem and that is a HUGE problem is that the external recruiters who one approaches through personal network will automatically assume the "Mohali because he didnt make it to HYD" situation... and Mohali will receive that treatment even if the notion is artificial.... The situation might change after 5-6 years but as of now the syndrome will remain UNFORTUNATELY...

Thanks for sharing these information...can you please tell source for the info you told regarding placements? Thanks!

Got an admit.. ISB Mohali campus.. but disappointed.. I am not sure if the brand and the experience and the recognition is the same.. I need them to be more transparent on this.. and being a guy from financial services I am surprised why they allocated Mohali to me.. They gave me 15 lakh scholarship though!!

Congrats to all the fellow admits!! and best of luck to all rejs / wl junta!!

I also got admit in ISB mohali 10 lakhs scholarship!!

ISB brand will be the same across campus..... I was looking at the faculty assigned to the two campuses. Looks like faculty from Kellogg and Wharton will be teaching core courses mostly at the Mohali campus. I'm pretty excited about that!

Any other thoughts on the Mohali campus?

Guys, The interesting thing about campus allocation is the language used in the email.. The Campus, when you start your programme will be "Hyderabad". So does this mean you might end up graduating on the other campus?

dats wat i understand from the statements! But I feel this may be a carrot situation cannot be sure!

anybody visited Mohali campus..pls share!

I have a reply from Oxford (Said) in regards to TOEFL, which is as follows:

In answer to your query, unfortunately there is no relaxation in regards to the minimum TOEFL score requirements. Your application would not be rejected but held over until the minimum score was met or exceeded. Please note that we do not hold over applications for consideration the following academic year, so if you apply for stage 2 (for example) and achieved the minimum score by stage 3, your application will be considered during that stage. If the score is achieved any time after stage 3 your application would be withdrawn from the system and a fresh application would need to be submitted for consideration for the following years programme.


I have a query from the fellow applicants. I have recently started my application for SAID. I completely understand that it is really very late now.. I wanted to know by when should the GMAt and TOEFL scores reach SAId. If I apply for a waiver of TOEFL along with application. and if my request is declined then will they give me some time to appear for it or will it be rejected upfront because of Toefl.. any comments are appreciable.

the admission committee seems to be off until Jan 4 for christmas break..
