Puys I need your advice. 

10th: 85 

12th:69

BE(E&TC):55 (Pune University)

CAT :98 , XAT: 98.4, SNAP: 99.8, IIFT: 99.4

Work Ex : 9 months in Distributed Control Systems employed in Industrial Control

I have converted SIBM Pune, and am hopful of converting MDI PGPM.(waitlisted presently )

NEW IIMs im sure I'll get in,

also im waiting on IIM S.

the Specialisation i want to opt for is MARKETING.

As my academic record is so poor im going to do my best to be amongst the top of my class during MBA + participate & do well in as many case study competitions as possible during the course to pump up my profile.

Im inclined towards SIBM for the following reasons,


What i think is that Compared to MDI or the IIM s there is a higher probability of students at SIBM having a similar academic record to mine , also ive heard academic rigour at SIBM is lower compared to the other B Schools Ive mentioned which assuming i do my best would help me (in theory at least) to stand out in my class. 

Can you guys please tell me what you think of my decision , and please put in any suggestions if you have. Also i want to know if i stand a chance of getting the top jobs offered at these B schools. Please be blunt, I dont want to regret the past, from here on im ready to do my best to achieve the best that i can. 

P.S : im not against repeating CAT either, but with my bad acads it becomes a big risk. (XL BM interview showed me what the top schools think of bad acads even if you have a solid reason behind it)

I want to ask something.everyone goes ga-ga over an IIM tag.Now i understand the affinity for BLACKI,but when it comes to new IIMs people are always like one day they will be in IVY league as IIMs rise fast and IIM tag matters.now the question is,there are already 13 IIMs+6 newest=19 IIMs, so will one day top 20 comprise of just IIMs barring a few 2-3 exceptions? or suppose govt opens up 10 more in 10 years to come,would one day top 30 be just IIMs? doesn't the speed at which they are coming up affect the brand value?obviously it doesn't affect BLACKI but what about others? and does that mean that in long run (say 20-30 years from now) we (all from non-iim but good b-schools) be just considered shit like?

[Official] (2015-2017) IIM Ranchi Admission Queries and Discussion

This thread is for all those who wish to be a part of IIM Ranchi's PGDM and PGDHRM (2015-2017 batch) programs. ...

Latest Posts   

@IIMRanchi A student from 2013-15 batch at IIM Ranchi told me today that all the students were not placed during the final placements. The institute closed the placement process officially just to release the placement report, while there is still a considerable chunk of people who are yet to be placed. 

I just checked the placement report, and even there its not mentioned that 100% placement was achieved or all the students were placed.

Is that true?

Avg pkg is also inflated by adding international pkg of 55 L. I also heard only Nigerian companies gave international placements in IIM Ranchi.. Request you to release the exact domestic average salary. Don't want the average with a huge international package addition..

There are relatively fewer withdrawals from marketing and also some of those who plan to withdraw haven't completed all the formalities. So I guess we can see multiple movements at once. 

^ Mostly speculation. Still no idea what really is going on.
