my 2 cents...
next year you will have 6.7 years of workex .i.e. on dec by march 2012(most of the iims workex calculation) you will be having 7 years of workex.....
so next year scene is gmat 700, workex 7 years...indian IT unless and until you have exceptional SOP and other things in your platter, it would be difficult for you to crack IIM's 1 year course....

I think you should go for sp jain

PS : my 2 college friends are passing out from sp jain this year (both of them are already placed), in case you need their number pm me.

thanks mmukul bhai...interesting perspective....kabi kabi toh lagta hai, ye IT ne toh WHAT laga ki rakh diya hai....
For me, the choice between IIM C, B and ISB would be primarily influenced by the average work experience of my peer group:

ISB - 2 to 7 yrs

IIM C - 7 to 12 yrs

IIM B - 10 to 16 yrs

I would rather make a decision based on my peer group instead of thinking about fee, location advantage, post MBA package, etc. as 1-yr MBAs are largely group-study oriented where there are more discussions in the class than simple lecture delivery.

IIM-C has companies coming for senior level profiles, so lesser options for a 5-6 yrs work-ex guy.

Similarly, ISB prefers a younger batch looking at its past years' placement records where ISB found it difficult to place 7-8+ yrs work-ex guys. The companies generally offer entry or mid-level managament profiles which are best suited for folks with 3-6 yrs work-ex.

Dear Puys friends,

If you can help me, with some of your valuable suggestions & opinions, i will be more than grateful to in a VERY VERY awarkard suitation....

I applied to SP, IIML, IIMC
SP - Selected, joining date is 12th jan
IIML - Rejected, on ground of 2 months less exp. (exp.5.10 yrs by march 2011)
IIMC - Rejected, not in 1st list atleast

My profile:
700/4.5 ; Male ; 5.7 yrs as of today; IT services; Presales & BD profile currently; EC & Academics is decent with distinction throughout

Am not able to decide whether to take SP or wait for 1 more year and try IIMs (I didn't opt ISB because of high fees, when already burdened with similar amount on home loan side)

hence very very confused at the moment....

Abhi : I don't see SP in your list for 5-7 yrs band, just want to know, isn't it good enough from your perspective? what ur views ??

Sameer bhai...if you could also give your views, it would be helpful..

Note: I know all views would be personal, hence just need your unbiased opinions

It is a little tricky. I'll post the msg in the email--

1. Sending an e-mail confirmation within 5 ( five) working days to mentioning your name and file number.

2. Sending the enclosed Acceptance Form, duly filled in, along with a demand draft for Rs. 2,00,000/- (Rupees Two lacs only) in favour of Indian Institute of Management Calcutta. The demand draft should reach us within Friday, 31st December, 2010, failing which the offer of admission sent herewith, shall stand withdrawn without any further communication to you.
