Its not only that, many of us have submitted well before the deadline. I believe that it is not right on the college part as well to give into prospective students mistakes/lack of planning and keep extending the deadlines. Many of us would have planned/cancelled personal activities on the dates the interviews were actually scheduled(mailers that admission team sent). So now if the dates get postponed again, its once again change in plan for us.
Somebody from admissions/Capsule please let us know whether there will be any change in the interview dates(18/19/20th Feb for Chennai) or the date when GD/PI shortlist will be put up(4th Feb). Also would the final list be put up at least a month before the course starts?
I feel somehow its not fair for those applicants who worked on their applications well in time on or before 15th Jan. I am really not able to understand why Great Lakes extended the deadlines so as to attract more students for filling in the new forms and for the convenience of these new applicants. Generally prestigious schools like MDI,SP Jain, GIM etc never extend the deadlines whatever number of applicants they lose. Those who really wanted to apply to Great Lakes would not have waited till the XAT results to come before applying. No offense to Great lakes but i was really feeling bad
about this and hence kept my viewpoint here. Inputs by Capsules/Indraneel/seniors would be really appreciated.
