Same here bro, this is extremely disappointing on the part of ISB, I first wrote to them last year and was told that feedback will be provided in April.

Then I wrote to them again in April and was told that feedback will be provided in first week of May. When I wrote to them in May, they said that they are sorry for the delay and gave no further deadline.

Lots of procrastination on the part of ISB, something which is not associated with them.


Hi chet321, Sunil prabhu and Sandeep,

Did u guys get feedback from ISB ? I had mailed them last in June, but no reply since then.

Can somebody please check my profile and tell my chances of getting call from ISB / Pgpx iima?

WE : 12 + years / non IT / PSU

Acad : B.tech / good college / c.g.p.a 8.02/10

Gmat : 670 / awa 5.5

Achivements/awards : very normal

I think i have done fairly good job in essays.

Thanks for the response, I guess all I should do is apply and take it as it comes

GMAT : 720 (Q 50, V 3 AWA 5.0

You've got a fair GMAT score, considering the avg of 730. I would have said "Good", but then you've passed out just a couple of years ago.

Work Ex : 2 yrs in an IT Major
This is what I am not sure of - you are at the borderline in terms of experience. If it is 2 yrs right now, then it'll be about 2.5 yrs when you join. Not sure on this front!

I'm planning to apply in R1 and I'm working on the essays
You should also check out the thread for this year's applications - ISB 2009 Aspirants.

Cheers

guys i just wanted to know what kind of verification is done(by B-schools like ISB ) for the work experience....as in is it telephonic or is it personal visit by some guys they employed for this purpose.

can somebody answer me please?
my 2nd recommender(a traditional finicky lot) wants to know this as he insists that if it is a verification through e-mail or some web based stuffs then he would rather prefer not to be a part. Can u tell me if the ISB atleast does it telephonically if not personally?
some pg veterans...plz reply

I would just like to answer the question in a different manner by saying that

My whole stregth lies in making the idea and hence the patent and I should be looking at selling that only. With some experiences connect the same to the patent benefits

Isn't that fine



Please ignore....

Hi,

I got rejected in the ISB interview because I could not answer well the case study question. following was the question:

you are aware about the unmanned vehicles being used in army for fighter plans etc. I have the patent for this technology. Now, I want to use my plan in commercial aviation.How do you think i should go forward so that I can earn maximum money? Should I start my own manufaturing or start issueing licensing or whatever comes to your mind? speak 5-10 points that come to your mind.

Any ideas how to answer this question?


One of the ways is to issue license to commercial aircraft manufacturing cos to use the patent n earn out of it
Setting up a manufacturing plant will need lot of investment and it ll take a hell a lot of time to get it done and start making money
moreover if you are a person who doesnt know the manufacturing nuisances then this wont be the best option to go for without a proper partner

If we go for selling the licenses, the current aircraft manufacturing cos ll be already having the facilities to manufacture air crafts sans this technology..they jus need to invest in getting this part done and fitting their flights with this module...

We can have time periods for this license or we can restrict the license to say x number of aircract/manufacturer..by this we can get continuous revenue out of licensing if this technology becomes a success in the commercial space...

And we can even improvise on this tech n get them patented as well..

P.S. This is from a novice and this is the first time I am doing stuffs like case study analysis...Guess my explanation is the one which ll be suggested by most of the ppl who dont think out of the box:tellme:

But is there any out of the box solution for this case?
