(4 months - full time on my start-up
28 months - full time with a leading global research and analytics company and part-time on my start-up)
CAT score(Sectionals as well):
Extra-curriculars: Godly/Super awesome (started and led multiple international automotive research projects; got several awards; appreciated by the online, print and TV media)
I have a few questions:
1.What are my chances with so poor acads? Am planning to use my consistent high scores till 8th class and high ranks/percentiles in IITs/AIEEEs/CATs/FMS, etc. to prove that I am not dumb and due to certain circumstances, my scores suffered.
2. Well this one will seem stupid - Am a good 'writer' (thought process) but a bad 'writer' (handwriting). My handwriting is worse than a 3rd grader and it takes a dozen men to comprehend my handwriting. Do you think it will impact my WA score?
3. I did M.Com. (1 year completed) to get into FMS as I dont have 60% in UG - had a ding from FMS in 2009 despite 99.58%. Will this course go against me? I will tell the Adcom the truth - I did it for FMS and chose M. Com. despite being an engineer because I wanted to learn about international commerce. Being one of the laziest souls on this planet, I havent collected my first year marksheets. Will I need it during PI? Lastly, I have a supply in M. Com. first year which I will clear this June.Overall, I want to know if this course brings more negatives than positives, should i take it off my profile?
4. Apart from my full-time job, I am working on my start-up (we sell electric bikes under our own brand) at nights and on weekends (My employers are aware of this). My start-up is not registered as currently we sell our bikes only in Delhi (we do not need to register ourselves till we reach sales of INR 1 million or start inter-state sales). Hence, regarding the proofs, I only have documentary evidence in the form of mails from suppliers, customer enquiries, mails from my angel investors and incubators, etc. Do I need to get the company registered?
PS: Sorry for such a long post!!!
I have cleared all required cutoffs (both CAT and academics) mentioned in the websites of 4 of the 6 new IIMs. But received no emails from any of them. I tried to reach a couple of admissions office through emails and waiting for their reply. Shame that few new IIMs do not have email IDs to contact their admissions department ! IIM Udaipur doesn't have one for sure & IIM Raipur has an email ID which is wrong (email bounces back).
However, I have received an email from IIM K ! Strange !
Any suggestions on how to approach the admissions dept of new IIMs for receiving the email ?
