Like all other Google views, this one also might be little old, Hence GMP hostel is not there in the picture. Actually it is located at end ( North of Faculty Resudence ).
I was there 10 days back it is quite swanky. I am sure all of us will like it.

Congrat and welcome aboard,
1. Dates for GMP 08-09 batch not yet announced and schedule will be received alongwith the admit letter. However to give you an idea, last year batch started on 24th June.
2. 1st installment amount as given on the website is Rs 325,000/-. Last date for depositing same not given. Though it is likely that it will be required by end April.

any updates about number of seats............somone told me it is 120....but need to be confirmed..........seeing the repsonses on this post i am quite sure it is more than 60.....
Do we have to request Pearson Vue to send GMAT scores to XLRI or is it sufficient to attach a copy of the score report to the application.
Also, do we have to mail any supporting documents ?
Can anybody help me.
I want to apply to GMP programme.
I want to apply thru GMAT. Can I apply, M an indian, nether NRI nor Foreign student
At the same time I want to apply 4 2 year BMP as well
Now can I apply thru normal form from bank and fill my details on xlri.edu. If yes then how will I be able to apply to GMP thru GMAT
Waiting for reply as the last date of applying is 30th Nov
Just curious to know how long does it take to receive official score from GMAT guys? I wrote my GMAT on Oct 22nd but have not received my official score sheet yet.
Also is there a way to confirm whether GMAT scores have been sent to the schools that we select at time of writing the test?
Now "Application Results" has been changed to "Admission Results" on IIMA website. My heart had already started racing, before I saw that results to be declared only on 31st.
Last year results were out on 27th Oct ( Friday ).
Some of the staff at the IV venue stated that this year too results may be out few days in advance.
I too have a gut feeling that results may be out by 26th Oct ( Friday ) evening.
I also belong to shipping background and if you remember, I met you on 15th at IIMA. I saw yr post today only and I am wondering what made you so frustated with your job.
First of all, Yr ..... UNIQUE IN NATURE ..... profile could be the difference between a call or, a ding from IIMA or, any good B-School.
I don't understand what your career in shipping has got to do with you been cut off from the REAL WORLD or, DEGRADING YOUR INTELLECTUAL ABILITY. That too when you are claiming that you learned a lot in merchant navy.
Every profession in the world has got pros and cons. Take the trouble of digging little deeper.
If what you are saying is correct then you wouldn't find Indian Merchant Navy officers at at every B-School worth its salt, whether it is IIMA, Kellogs, Wharton, HBS or, LBS.
Wish you all the best!
I am very late to join this forum ..... but read almost all of the posts in this thread.....

Chief officer in Foreign Shipping Company
work ex- 8 years (International) in Merchant Navy
I left Roorkee University .... to pursue a career in merchant navy .... working for 8 years in taxing and challenging field of merchant navy ..... now I am looking to shift career as i dont have to achieve or learn more in merchant navy ....
I NEVER THOUGHT (AFTER GETTING IN TO MERCHANT NAVY) THAT ONE DAY I WILL BE APPEARING FOR IV FOR IIMA .... ITS LIKE DREAM COMING TRUE ....I THINK I HAVE ALREADY AChHIEVED MORE THAN WHAT I DESERVED ...... I WONT REPENT IF I WONT BE SELECTED .......I AM SAYING THIS BECAUSE ALTHOUGH I LEARNED A LOT IN MERCHANT NAVY ..... UNIQUE IN NATURE ..... IT HAS GOT NO RECOGNITION .....THE PRICE I PAID WAS TOO MUCH .... IT HAS MADE ME NOT ONLY CUT OFF FROM THE REAL WORLD BUT ALSO DEGRADED MY INTELLECTUAL ABILITY.... I CANT STAND A CONVERSATION ON TOPICS SUCH AS INDIAN ECONOMY, CURRENT ISSUES, BUSINESS STRATEGIES ETC.. ..... MY SOFT SKILLS ARE NOT GOOD ... I MEAN I WONT BE ABLE TO SELL MYSELF .... THOUGH I AM VERY GOOD AT MY JOB.... MERCHANT NAVY IS A THANKLESS JOB ...... I DONT HAVE ANY AWARD OR HONOR TO BOAST AROUND .... ALSO I CANT MEASURE MY ACCOMPLISHMENTS IN TERMS OF %AGE OF PROFIT OR COST SAVING IN DOLLARS .....
I ALWAYS REPENTED THE DAY I LEFT ROORKEE .... BUT NOW I HOPE I WILL JOIN THE STREAM WHERE I WILL BE COMPETING WITH A GUY FROM IIT.... THE IV CALL FROM IIMA HAS GIVN ME THAT HOPE .... B SCHOOLS ARE CONSIDERING A GUY FROM NERCHANT NAVY ...... LETS SEE WHERE I LAND UP ..... BUT I AM CONFIDENT THAT I JUST NEED ONE GOOD PLATFORM TO LAUNCH MY NEW CAREER.... AND WITH MY UNIQUE TRANSFERRABLE SKILLS ONE DAY I WILL BE SUCCESSFUL .... I JUST HAVE TO BE HONEST AND BE PROUD OF WHAT I HAVE ACCOPLOSHED ..... I HAVE TO WORK HARD ON MY WEAKNESSES
