I wonder if the Adcom is compiling the results now, as we speak!
On another note, how many of you sent thank you notes after the interview? Any opinions on its pros-cons???
Reasons not to be paranoid:
1. Considering the fact that the last of interviews were on Nov 6, ISB, in all probability, would not have updated details of all admits as yet.
2. Even if they did, why would ISB send a mail telling about R2 deadlines when R1 folks can do absolutely nothing about it(irrespective of whether they are admitted or not)?
Do we really think ISB is sending cryptic messages hoping to get applicants into mass hysteria and paranoia...
? Naaahhh !
Btw, are there anyone who have not received the email with '20 days to go' as subject yet?
2 years in IT
2 years in a start up-Manufacturing
submitted for early R2 deadline of 31st October - with i/v as HYD. App number- 131684
wonder what such a huge number means ?
Congrats and All the best....Can you share your profile and also the date when you submitted your application.
that's what I think but I don't see a problem with my math.
Total applicants 1800.
Selection ratio 8:5:1
Number called for interview = 1800 / 8 * 5 = 1125
Number selected = 1125 / 5 = 225
In order to select 350 people -
Number interviewed will be = 1750
Total applicants = 2800
With application number still running in 900s or early 1000s, I don't see 2800 reaching in 1 day. That will mean that there are around 1900-2000 guys like Reconadi who are giving final touches to their application. You think that is propable?
Since I have nothing better to do, I did math. :)
Out of 1800 applicants, 1125 will be called for interview and 225 will be selected taking into account 8:5:1 ratio for applicants:interview:select as given by Dr Menon but then this will leave a mojority of setas to be filled in R2.
Oh man! How pathetic am I? I wish irrelevant chit chat thread was going on.
Submitted my app yesterday (id: 130xxx). Lets see. Does anybody know when and if shortlisted candidates will be announced or will they be contacted directly for interview.?? ISB website mention only interview date and not shortlisted dates...
Anyway fingers crossed...
As per the feedbacks from Delhi and Kolkata pattern is coming out as
After GD = approx 1/3 of Sort-listed Candidates
After Case Study = approx 1/3 of GD Sort-listed Candidates
So for Directors' round it comes around 10% of Sort-listed Candidates.
Final Numbers may look like :
Delhi : Sort-listed Candidates = 25 ; Selected for directors' round = 3
Calcutta : Sort-listed Candidates = 9 ; Selected for directors' round = 1
Location to be decided : Sort-listed Candidates = 5 ; expected for directors' round = 1
New Jersey : Sort-listed Candidates = 27 ; expected for directors' round = 3-4
London : Sort-listed Candidates = 15 ; expected for directors' round = 1-2
Mumbai : Sort-listed Candidates = 57 ; expected for directors' round = 5-7
Bangalore : Sort-listed Candidates = 23 ; expected for directors' round = 2-3
Overall : Sort-listed Candidates = 161 ; expected for directors' round = 16-21
Lets see how this prediction goes. Hope Actual exceeds predicted :-)
