Done! btw i remember reading abt ur scholarship? did u fill the 4th essay? I think it was need based...or was I too lazy to confirm it?

Not to sound greedy, but I expected a schol

yes, I did.........
hehe.... The guy came out to escort me for the interview and said they are sorry as tehy were not sure how to pronounce my name! So i told them, and then the lady says "Oh! such an unusual and nice name, what does it mean"... so i told them what it means, and then they went on discussing that as to what they thought the word was, and i stood on my claim as to the meaning. Then i said "havent you heard it in hindi songs".. Lady says "Is it?"..and the guy says "Can u sing a song for us with your name in it". Thankfully I rememeberd one instantly and actually sang it too!! And They even complimented me on my singing!! So first 7-8 mins of my interview was this! So yeah, you never know what works for ISB.

P.S. It was the first time ever that I sang in front of anyone. But I did not do bad, probably it was the survival instict that worked.

Well I did not fill in any essay for scholarship my GMAT score was not exceptional either nor were my undergrad marks.. Although I do acknowledge my professional experience is quite good...Maybe that justifies the 15 lakh scholarship to compensate for a MOHALI admit.. I spoke to a lot of people about this situation.. The star faculty from the whartons, kelloggs which started off in Hyderabad will be all there at Mohali.. Mohali campus is apparently extremely awesome as well.,. The curriculum is same.. and for recruitment the student will have anonymity in campus while interviewing with the firms .. Yes everyone has equal access to the jobs with no mention of campus and you could be asked to fly between campuses if shortlisted for a job..So level playing ground.. additionally since it has fewer people the bonding is expected to be stronger.. The mix in terms of talent, diversity , gender is the same across both campuses.. So ALL good that way.. MY primary problem and that is a HUGE problem is that the external recruiters who one approaches through personal network will automatically assume the "Mohali because he didnt make it to HYD" situation... and Mohali will receive that treatment even if the notion is artificial.... The situation might change after 5-6 years but as of now the syndrome will remain UNFORTUNATELY...

Hi,

Good to know of your scholarship!!

Did you get the scholarship information in the hard copy or was it mentioned in the email?
Care to elaborate eh, minstrel?? :)

No offence.......

Hi All,

Received admit for Hyd Campus.. Congrats to all others who received admission. And for those who got rejected.. better luck next time and moreover ISB is not the only means of achieving your dreams.. Keep up your hopes.


One query.. The scholarship/tution waiver details will be given with the admit mail only or it will be intimated at a later date ? I didn't have anything in my mail..

Hi Puys,

I am R2 admit - Mohali. Was referred this thread by a colleague couple of days ago. Sad that I did nt know about it earlier. Thanks to my non-traditional background.

Reason for this post - I read yesterday's action but dint want to waste time in opening new gmail account. Did so today !
Have gone through the thread yesterday and today, A M A Z I N G !
Someone rightly said, those who were'nt a part earlier missed the fun.

Saw wonderful (read fun/ informational) posts from soubhg, gs18, sausi007, gs18, aritro9782, akb1234 (9978, 10156), MBA 2012 (9969), avasthi, brainfilth (10107, 10269, 10300), traffix (10255, 10305, 10340).
Posts mentioned in brackets (good ones) made me laugh/smile/cheer up on a stressed up day yesterday.. Gives me a feeling that I am joining an illustrious class (Fun in tough situations).

I wish I had known about this forum, its much better than any other source.. Anyways .. better late than never.. Loved the excitement.. happy to be a newbie.. Good luck to those who did'nt get admits. Hope they succeed in getting better offers !

Ok puys, this is coming a little late.

Firstly, congratulations to all the admits Hope this year at ISB, you guys achieve what you wanted to in your careers!

Secondly, waitlisted puys, keep the hopes up. As one says, it isn't over till it's over!

Thirdly, those who got rejects, it's not the end of the road. Most of you have other options, focus on those and things will work out in your favour :)

Last but not least, I got a deferred admit (as many people were sure, I would - with the low workex). And I'm going to reject it. ISB Hyderabad CO2013 was on the top of my list due to some personal reasons. Had put in a lot of effort to break the trend (of 2+ years workex admits). Didn't happen Mohali or CO2014 doesn't work in my favour. Have IIM-B and IIM-C interviews up in early March. Hope I get luckier there. So, the marathon continues :)

Met some really nice people here. Would love for our paths to cross sometime. Cheers! :cheers:


Hey MBA2012, I was actually wondering that there hasn't been any response from you... congrats on the deferred admit, it would still be a confidence booster.... and ATB for all ur upcoming interviews...
