cat 98.57
good wct (thats what i thought)
skipped VI
interview - i think the panelists were from imt nagpur, was conducted in mumbai, they kept telling me that dcp and imt nagpur are really good throughout the interview, i said i only wanted ghaziabad, not interested in anything else,they asked why had i numbered the preferences in the form, i told them that initially i had put only ghaziabad and put a - against the others, but the ppl checking our documents made me put the preference, i dont really care about the other branches, the panel seemed quite pissed at this.

Result - waitlisted for nagpur
ROTFLMAO (not really surprised after the pissed looks they gave me, but who cares, at least i was frank with them, even i had got irritated when they were saying dcp and imt nagpur were really really good, shouldn't the interview be on what insti i wanted?)

Ok plenty of confusion in this thread regarding selection criteria... Seniors please help - one authoritative voice with the exact selection criteria would do... Also, will NMIMS have that mandatory disclosure document? That would have selection criteria for last year right? Can someone post that document or a link to that ?

Friends most importantly we have to find out about the weightage given to the written exam . I think it is very important to know that . Because with a 80 percent weightage on the written score ( as has been the trend ) , it will be very very difficult to convert the call . And all those people who have converted the calls with ranks of over 2400 are exceptional or have a lot of work experience. For freshers , it will be a herculean task .
For our sake , i hope they change the admission process this year , given that the exam was taken online , and there have been statistical methods applied to normalize scores . Could some seniors please consult the admissions department and tell us about the criteria for selection this year !! :banghead:

totally agree... no point paying thousand bucks extra just to make up the numbers. So NMIMS seniors kindly give the exact criteria for final selections this time around as early as possible..
