Not sure dude.
Firstly, if I am not wrong IIT Bombay was supposed to be conducted at Bangalore and other centes across India apart from Bombay.
I have a call from IIT Madras on the 17th of March and IIT Bombay on the 16th of March. I called IIT Madras and requested them to shift my centre to Mumbai or change my GD/PI dates. They simply rejected my request saying the process for allocation of GD/PI slots have closed. I had no option now but to call IIT Bombay. At first they were very receptive and assured me that my request for change will be done (this was on 19th of this month, as soon i recieved my letter). Today when i call them, the same individual says that it is impossible to change the dates(it is on you and you need to take a call b/w IIT Madras and IIT Bombay). If this is the co-ordination that prevails b/w IIT's, then what will happen if we have a call from some other insti on the same day.
Remeber i am in bangalore and have to go to Bombay first and then dont know how to reach Chennai thereafter.
The whole process makes me feel as if i was dealing with some govt office employee who simply toyed with my request and in the end rejected it.
Poor show of professionalism-IIT BOMBAY
Disclaimer- If it hurts anyone at IIT Bombay then so be it, because i also felt the same.
I also had a similar problem last year, my SJMSOM's dates were clashing with IIMK...
I requested IIMK...they plainly refused..
I requested SJMSOM, they were "very receptive" as you say, and they did shift my slot.
It has happened to many students this year also.
If it is not done in your case, it must be some genuine reason (for details, read Shekhar's mail)
Also, we are more than willing to help you all guys...u are most probably are future juniors.
Your disappointment is pretty much understood..we dont deny that
But using harsh words like "unprofessional" doesnt gel well with us especially when students here are literally taking so much pains to see things go out smoothly.
As Shekhar said, do contact him but i would advise please refrain from posting mails when you are not exactly aware of the complete issues.
Having said that, ATB for ur IITB AND IITM interviews.
