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.

Hi Amit,

Good to know that you are also from Jsr and living in Gurgaon. I was in KMPM 87 batch. I tried to find the number of seats at XLRI, but did not not get any numbers from adcom. Met some of the seniors but they also did not have clear picture.

Do PM me yr contact details, we can get in touch.

I am also in.

Had telephonic interview scheduled on 21st March, which was changed to PI at XLRI at my request. Because of sudden change in my company's plan I landed in India on 14th March.

XLRI has been really kind to reschedule my interview after dates for PI were over and I thank them for that.

My interview was conducted by a panel of three Profs. I could recognise Prog Chairman Prof.Ray, who was sitting in the centre. Could not identify other two.

My brief profile :- Shipping, 12 Yrs work exp, GMAT-710
Interview Date - 21st March @ XLRI

Congratulations to all the guys who made it and ATB to guys who didn't for yr future endeavors.

I originally belong to Jamshedpur and did my early education from there. For past three years I have been living in Gurgaon. If you want any general information regarding Jamshedpur shoot yr querry.

See you guys at Jamshedpur.

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 ?

Thanks


As per instructions in the application form, a copy of the GMAT score report needs to be sent.

And since XLRI is quoting their GMAT code for sending GMAT score, I think they want score to be sent by Pearson Vue also.

Folks
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?

Thanks
Ash.


Normally it takes around 3 days to receive the score on yr mail ID and about 10-15 days for hard copy by courier.

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. Samir

Hi Amit,

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!

Hi all,
I am very late to join this forum ..... but read almost all of the posts in this thread.....
my interview for IIMA PGPX is on 15th Oct.......
MY PROFILE
Amit Tiwary
age - 29
GMAT - 720
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

IS THERE ANY ONE ELSE FROM SHIPPING BACKGRUND SELECTED FOR IIMA PGPX IV ..... IF HE CAN GIVE SOME FEEDBACK ..... OR I WILL CALL HIM BACK FROM 9868588214

I WILL BE IN AHMEDABAD TOMORROW AND I AM GOING TO VISIT TWO PILGRIMS
AKSHARDHAM TEMPLE AND IIMA ..... I AM EXCITED
