    I had my interview on the 2nd of Feb in Hyderabad.
    The interview started 15minutes before time. The panel consisted of 3, one looked like a current student and remaining two were from Adcom.
    They were looking at my essays and resume all the while. -
    1. Explain what do you do - told the...
    Its the essays u write while filling up the INDIVIDUAL application forms for the respective B schools.. No one will ask u a word about ur GMAT essays..
    is this the the essay that we write in the GMAT exam or is it there a separate essay we have to write at the time of application to ISB?
    Guys any idea when results will be out?
    The waiting period is killing me and more so after the FT rankings
    Called up the ISB office yesterday and they confirmed that results will be out on or before 15th Feb positively.
    Best of luck to all candidates.
    Just finished interviewing. Interview was on campus. Was kind of a historic moment today with ISB making it to the 20th rank on the FT rankings.
    There was a huge party and I was invited too. After the dean's address I was summoned for my interview. (after writing that 100 word thingy)
    Quoting from the webstie.
    "1) Can I pay the tuition fees in instalments?
    Tuition fees can be paid in two instalments; however, the ISB allows a discount on fees paid one time in full. "
    You can find this information in FAQ section.
    I had my interview on 28th december, and the wait for the result is killing..

    A short interview does not essentially mean a reject. Sometimes though the interviewer looks bored, he might actually be making a lot of mental notes. Dont lose heart. ATB.

    2. Do you always take risks ?...

    Hi all,
    had my isb interveiw at mumbai .
    the interveiw panel consisted of amitesh sanjay and anuradha.
    well, first i waited outside an empty interveiw room for say 10 minutes...
    was wondering did they forget that there was one more candidate---was a bundle of nerves at that time .
