Though I never thought, it would end this way..
What surprises me is that my profile was worth an interview call last year but not this year.
My profile (for the benefit of other puys):
5.5 years of work-ex in manufacturing, market research and strategy with leading Indian brands
One thing for sure, the competition to get into ISB is getting tougher by the day. I have seen so many stellar profiles and GMAT scores on this forum, my app. definitely got lost in the middle of all those awesome profiles.
I will now re-appear for GMAT in June and will simultaneously work on improving other aspects of my application.
You will find me in the next year forums :)
Till then... Goodbye
PG, this forum, and all the puys have been a great help all through... Thanx guys and ATB for 15 Feb.
Has any reapplicant got an interview call from Delhi? If yes, for when?
akb1234 SaysI just the mail from ISB... interview scheduled on 7th Jan 10:40 AM....
Well in my and isb's defense, "India mein hota hai and ineffective communication" are bcoz, being an Indian univ and receiving majority of the applications from Indians, a very high percentage of the applicants are brilliant enough to get a call from the best B school worldwide and hence considerable amount of time needs to be spent to review the applications.
While reviewing the applications, the least the adcom can do is keep the junta updated about the status of the applications and stick to the deadline..
I agree that they are poor guys, overloaded with work but even we are poor, pathetic guys, managing applications along with regular job responsibilities, aspiring for greater recognition from the world and praying for the lovely email.
And if I were you, I wouldn't read too much into the rankings. Many of the rankings do not rate ISB that high.
ISB for me is a poor man's Wharton. It gives excellent return on investment and provides quality education alongwith giving you the opportunity to network with some of the most intellectual minds, who couldn't crack CAT/convert one of their IIM calls earlier in their life.
Let's invite the adcom to attend an info session on effective business communication..
pun apart, the wait is killing but this is the way it works in India.. i guess we can't do anything other than trying to concentrate on other applications..
Chans87 SaysDoes anyone know how much weight age does ISB give to recommendations ?
The breakup of my score is 40V and 48Q. Total-720 and AWA-6.0
Im an entrepreneur for over 1 yr with 2.5 yrs exp in ibanking- KPO..
Plz share ur opinion on my profile
Its just been a day since the Delhi calls came in, and some of us have already started feeling that they are out...thats a rather pessimistic approach I'd say. Sit back and relax. Let them roll out the mails- I am damn sure (whether I get an interview call or not), they cannot get it done in a day!!
For me, I'd patiently wait till the 3rd of Jan. :)
Is there anyone out there with an R2 application completed and submitted ,except for a pending reco letter (online reco, not offline)?
Is there a date till which ISB will wait for the reco to be completed, before considering the application null and void? (Oh dear god! )
