Thanks in advance.
I applied for IIM A PGPX in round 1. Disappointed not to be shortlisted for interview in round one, but it had the following message:
We intend to keep your application on file and the Admissions Committee will revisit your profile in Round 2.
Is that a standard message for all round 1 applicants? anyone else who received this message too ? Does this mean waitlisting and if yes chances of shortlisting for interview in round 2 ?

An MBA often
is the first choice for students looking for a prestigious business
qualification. Yet in many cases, a
specialised Masters can be more suitable.
MBA vs. Masters - which is the
better choice? Here are 5 considerations
to help you decide.
1. Level of Specialisation
An MBA is a general business qualification that covers different aspects of the business environment, including things such as: Leadership, Business Management, Marketing, Strategy, Accounting, Operations Management, Global Business, and Human Resource Management. MBA graduates are often referred to as "generalists". Imagine generalist knowledge as being '10 miles broad and 1 mile deep'
A specialised Masters has a specific subject focus. It usually concentrates on one subject area that you want to specialise in. Imagine the type of knowledge as being "1 mile broad, 10 miles deep".
2. Specialised MBAs
Specialised MBA programmes cover broad business and management subjects. However, they will also include modules that will lead to the 'specialisation' stated in the course title, e.g. MBA for the Music & Creative Industries, MBA in Aviation Management, MBA for the Public Sector, MBA in Project Management.
There are many arguments for and against specialised MBA courses - you can read more about them in my post here: http://www.mesh-ed.com/mba-vs-masters/
3. What Recruiters Want
Whether you have an MBA, a Specialised MBA or Specialised Masters, what employers care about most is your knowledge, skills and experience can benefit their business. They will look for ability to bring value to their business and to help them achieve concrete business aims. When choosing the MBA or Specialised Masters course to apply for ask yourself how it will help you position yourself in the job market.
4. What B-Schools Want
When deciding whether an MBA, specialised MBA or a Masters is the better option for you, you will also have to consider the entry requirements. In the UK, most MBA programmes will ask for at least 3 years' work experience before you can start the programme. Some MBA and Masters programmes have particularly high academic and English language entry grades. However, one main difference between the entry requirements for MBA programme and those for other Masters courses is that many MBA courses do ask for GMAT. Some Masters courses may, too, but this depends on the course and the university.
5. What Are the Tuition Fees
The cost of your course is another important consideration when deciding whether an MBA or a specialised Masters course are the better option for you. The tuition fees for some MBA programmes can be considerably higher than those of many Masters degrees.
Whether you decide to apply for an MBA, a specialised MBA or specialised Masters programme, there are convincing arguments for and advantages to all of them.
As this post shows, there are a number of key factors to consider, and which option might benefit you most will really depend on your own aims, circumstances and future plans.
Many MBA applicants look at rankings when searching for a high quality MBA course with a good reputation. But are MBA rankings reliable? And do they really matter? Decide for yourself by asking these 8 questions:
1. What Is Being Ranked? Is this an MBA ranking or b-school ranking list?
2: What Is Being Measured? Rankings don't use all the same criteria when ranking courses/b-schools. What are the criteria they're using? How useful are these to you?
3. Methodology and Data? The methodology is often ignored by applicants but it's important you that you look at, not only what is being measured, but also how much weight is being given to each element, how the data is collected, and who is involved.
4. Can Everyone Take Part? B-schools and MBA courses participate in ranking lists by invitation. And not everyone who's invited decides to take part. So if you can't find a b-school or MBA course on a ranking list - don't simply assume they didn't make the rank.
5. Do Rankings Matter? I wished I could say 'no', but in reality rankings can matter very much to some types of employers. And of course they matter hugely to many applicants as well. So ranking can determine who else will be on the same course as you. However, ranking alone will not tell you what type of experience you personally will have.
6. What Do the Numbers Mean? Ok, so see one MBA course / b-school ranked 10th and one ranked 20th. Is #10 really better than #20? In what sense? Maybe, #10 is just more efficient as submitting the right data for the ranking exercise. Importantly, what will the difference be for you in terms of choosing #10 over #20?
7. What Are the Ranking Trends? How come an MBA or b-school ranks in top 5 in one table, but may not
appear in the Top 10 or Top 20 in another? Or, they're featured one year but drop off
the list the next? Consider: A dramatic
change to the ranking position is almost impossible to be due to changes in the
quality of the MBA course or the b-school's.
It's more likely to be due changes to the ranking methodology or
8. Is this a new B-schools or MBA Program? It's easier for more established b-schools or MBA courses to meet the requirements of some ranking tables. They'll meet criteria pertaining to the length time an MBA has been running, they will have alumni data - and they'll be more experienced at making their data submission for the ranking tables.
When choosing your MBA course, do look at MBA rankings as they can matter. However, treat them with some scepticism. Look behind the headlines, dig deeper into the methodology and criteria, look at year on year trends, read student and alumni profiles carefully - and above all, pick the option that makes most sense for you in terms of your objectives and future plans and aims.
