Hi Sanchit. Congrats on getting in!

I'm not sure about your query. You could contact Schulich directly. They would be able to clarify your doubts

For all you wannabe consultants out there who are wondering how to get a foothold into those elite consulting companies, and how to crack those seemingly impossible cases, wonder not! In a previous post, you have read about the consulting trek that T'16s undertook just a couple weeks back.

This post is all about the case interviews and how to prepare for them, as discussed by Steve Pidgeon T'07, who is a member of Tuck's Career Development Office (CDO) team, and helps students with recruiting into consulting companies.

Not to mention, the Tuck Consulting Club helps every single first year student interested in a consulting internship with preparation. The second year students who are part of the consulting club help the first year students solve cases by the boatload and before you know it, you'll be an expert in case interviews. Enough said. Read on!

@SPJainGlobal..

Hi Team..After having my Evals and considering the percentage of Conversion of Evals into Offer Letter of various regions,it looks to me that around 80-90 % of students are selected.

Please clarify are evals are just a mere formality and specifically in GMBA where almost 90% of the students are selected who apply for Evals.

Team,You would agree doing an MBA is a life time investment and what I have been able to gather that if everybody is getting selected in evals then how come SP Jain evals are making sure that only good and deserving students step in.

Also on Placement scenarios I have got mixed reviews that SP Jain doesn't support their students once they enter into their school and these are the reviews of Ex as well as Current students.

Moreover Just 50% Students are placed that too with their internal or previous contacts.

I know I would be asked to go to RM's of SP Jain or redirected to Placement page,but you would agree for all the prospective students Ex and Current students holds more importance than any one else.

Request you to please clarify on the above doubts on this Public Forum only so that a level of transparency is maintained which I get a gut feeling that SPJCM is trying to run off from the beginning whenever placements talks are around.

Is SPJCM GMBA = SPJIMR Mumbai really ,or just trying to use the brand name of SPJain Bombay and trying to sell its product to students who couldn't make to SPJIMR by asking them to invest 3X Fees ??

I know I may sound tough but if talk is related to my or any students career then let it be tough I am in..

Thanks

Team

 @ajindal4 What do you think, evals are the first step to get into S P Jain? Students those who are qualified only get selected. And talking about placement, so there are several alums being posted on S P Jain's website and several connected on LinkedIn, check with them - they will let you know the exact figures that they are drawing right now.

@ajindal4 : I agree that the query is pertinent but along with posting query, connect with alums of GMBA and ask questions to them as well and try to get the insiders information as @rickr has suggested. If it doesn't satisfy your goals, move on to other B school which does.

I too have got offer from IIM I and SP Jain. I am joining SP Jain. I see it as value for money. placement and salary is almost same. Curriculum is same too. Someone may argue that IIM brand is better. But most of the rankings put SP Jain and IIM I at the same level. SP Jain has a global brand. I am 100% convinced to join SPJIMR. others views are welcome.

SPJIMR has a location advantage as well. SPJIMR is in top 10 in almost all rankings.

Guys all are requested to stop comparison here ...this thread is only for admission queries related to SPJIMR PGPM. If u have any other specific query regarding other B School programs please do off line or PM each other. I hope u understand. It unnecessarily liters the thread. This thread is not only useful for current candidates but also for future candidates also.

@Llewellyn75 , Hi Llewellyn, at this stage I think we all would want to have a deeper insight into interview selection process @ ISB . I remember reading a couple of your posts mentioning the rating from 0 to 5 in interviews. Are there defined parameters for evaluation which may bring in some subjectivity? I believe mostly panels had alums but few had profs as well.......

I am experiencing lots of problems in trying to post on PagalGuy. I think it is a tech problem either at my end or at the UI level.

The moment it gets resolved I will post about the method of evaluation.

Alternatively if you dig into my posts from last year you are sure to find the answer to how interviews are evaluated...

How is the Interview rated (03 Dec 2013)

http://www.pagalguy.com/gmat/isb-class-of-2015-aspirants-25094800/18195731


So here is what the scores at the interview and what they mean:

1 at the interview means you are a Direct Veto DING and need not apply again. (Very Rarely Happens)

2 at the interview means you are a direct DING but can apply again. (Most common among DINGs)

3 at the interview means Avg/ nothing great.

3.5 at the interview means above avg but still nothing great.

4 at the interview means good you got a chance if all else is okay.

4.5 at the interview means excellent and if all else is okay you will go through.

5 at the interview means Direct Veto ADMIT. Only someone very powerful in the ADCOM can object.

@Llewellyn75 If all else? Can u please elaborate Sir? What kind of parameters are evaluated except the usual gmat, acads, essays.. More over how the qualit of these parameters evaluated?

hrkharghar
h rwt @hrkharghar 89

Not entirely true for 4 - 5 ... interview panels like to feel that their 4 , 4.5l or 5 is  decisive in final selection. They are deluding themselves. Fact is several 5ers at interview don't make it purely because interview does not count for more than 30% of final merit list selection, while 3s do if their college, college gpa, gmat, nbr of yrs of work(4-6 gets highest points), gives them a leg up in the rest of the 70%. Addly,  there is a separate lowered bar for so called diversity candidates - you will notice this in 'dheela-dhaala' interviews as well.
