I have seen many posts talking about buffer calls, wait list and the like for IIML. Now, the reality is that ultimately it does not matter much if buffer calls have been given or not. There are about 225 general seats and they will be filled according to your merit rank.
For a moment let us assume that 200 buffer calls have been given. If so then people till merit rank of 425 would have got offers. Now people outside this will have a chance only if more than 200 in the offered list do not accept. In a situation where no one knows their merit rank, it does not matter whether buffer calls are there or not. Even if there are 0 buffer calls, the next 200 people in the merit list will get a chance if 200 out of the first 225 offers do not accept.
So the real issue is simple - out of 1150 or so general candidates called, you may have a chance if you are having a merit rank of about 550 or so in the worst case. I am assuming here that more than 300 people here will be taking up ABC or FMS/XL etc.
For people outside this 550 range, their chances are anyway not there irrespective of buffer calls and other issues. So, at this stage the only practical thing you can do is to try and file an RTI to get your merit rank. It will be safe to say that anyone with a merit rank of 600 or more needs to give up on IIML.
The problem is you will probably get responses to the RTI on 15th May or later and by that time the second list will be out. In the case of NO buffer calls, as the AO seems to say, there will be a lot of new converts in the second list. However, if the buffer calls are anywhere close to last year, do not expect more than a handful of new conversions.
Note here that IIMK has NOT given buffer calls and therefore their wait list is huge, more than 400 for general category. They are obviously expecting many in the first list to not take up K. In L too it may be a similar case but we do not know it as both buffer calls as well as the merit list ranks are unknown to people.
Bottom line - file and RTI and if IIML was an interview that went well for you, keep up hope for the second list. I think people with a composite score of more than 65 or so will have great chances.
This institute has created so much confusion...with this first cum first serve basis and hold list thing....imi is not able to manage its own admission process...hw is it suppose to produce good managers!!!!
I have got 83 percentile in CAT, can
Is anyone here got the call having the same scenario?
In the last ten years people claiming themselves obc have increased 10 percent to 44 percent.20 percent are scheduled caste,9 percent st.This makes people eligible for reservation 73 percent.Add new rules of 10 percent which makes it to 81 percent.Thus we general category candidates are fighting for 19 percent seats.No wonder with this flawed system we r still a developing country even 70 years after independence.Sab desh chodo and go outside so that ur children will not have to face this..
Hi can admin tell as to how many candidates are put on waiting list and will the waitlist number be released?
XLRI-BM vs IIM Kozhikode. Which one should I choose? Please be honest and give reasons in the comments.
Since the final result for IIM Udaipur is almost here, we've decided to start a dedicated WA group to help with your queries related to IIMU and MBA in general.
Note that this will be the only official group for IIMU where you can get hands-on and authentic information about the college and its activities backed with data.
Usual admission related queries fot CAT 2016 will also be answered. Please drop your number below or send us a PM to be added to the group.
Two tanks, T1 and T2, of equal capacities, are provided with inlet taps, A and B, of different flow rates, respectively. Tap A begins to fill the first tank. Seven minutes later, tap B is opened. Nine minutes after that, the total quantity of water in the two tanks is just enough to fill one tank completely. Exactly t minutes after that both the tanks are full. What is the value of t?
A DISCREPANCY!!This is regarding the IIM Lucknow FPM final selection list. Specifically for the specialization area - 'STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT'. In the final selection list there is a selected candidate named VIJAY KUMAR SINGH. But in the shortlist published by the IIM Lucknow, in which 9 candidates were called for the interview process, there was no candidate with this name. Moreover, I am pretty sure, only 4 candidates came on campus and appeared for the interview process for Strategic Management and there was no other candidate with this name. I had my interview scheduled at second last slot and I was there even after the last candidate went for the interview. Then how can someone who did not appear for d interview made it to the final list ( I assume why would someone come for the interview if he was not invited.) Another strange thing is that IIM Lucknow has taken off the shortlist published on the official website (older posts are still there). I have a phone snapshot of the shortlist. Could someone from the senior batch or admin active here, throw some light on this. The links to the snapshot of the shortlist and the final selection list (Name highlighted) published by IIM Lucknow on the official website, is provided below.
Hello! Experienced folks, please care to read ahead. In dire need of advice. I work for a reputed consulting company (one among the Big Four) but due to traveling and hectic schedule (I'm out for close to 12-13 hours a day), I'm not able to find time and energy for CAT prep. I have a work-ex of 16 months with this company so far. I was thinking of going for a relatively less-hectic, non-IT job, where the work pressure wouldn't be as much and I'd get enough time to prepare. Obviously, this would mean a small company and no brand value. So my questions are: 1. How much and how exactly will the brand value matter during interviews? 2. How much will it matter during MBA placements? 3. Will shifting my steam (from IT to say, content-writing) affect my chances in anyway? If yes, how? 4. For B-schools like ISB (or any of the the foreign institutes through GMAT, for that matter) that give a lot of importance to work-ex and its quality, how much of a difference will it make? 5. Lastly, if I am at a lead-position in the small company (say, if I do very well there), will it overshadow the lack of brand? Looking forward to hearing from you guys. Thanks!
do you have any idea about the final composite score required for selection? General and obc?
@shreyassinha123: earlier you said that people around upto 100 in waiting list havr good chances...so is it still applicable..first 100 people to send cheques/dd...stand good chance ??
