The general story doing rounds (and my guess) is that the purpose of the one word essay (100 words) is to make sure that your essays and the rest of the application were written by you and not by someone else on your behalf. I would doubt if there are points associated with it that are part of th...

I did not explore this option since I didn't want any unnecessary baggage with me for a one day trip, but I've heard from others that this is possible.

For all those who feel they've made some mistake in the application:
ISB's mindset is of selection, rather than rejection (something that we aren't used to). It is only in the final stages when the rejections creep up due to the sheer number of fine people applying.
So if you feel you've ma...
crazycalvin replied to ISB CO2012 - Waitlists!!!!
Good thoughts!
The notice period will be a pain.
But even more painful (to answer) would be to be asked in the interview, "We understand the tremendous responsibility that you carry in your organization, and the fact that the financial year end is approaching fast. Would you quit your organ...

Quick question:
How many of you (me included) waitlisted folks feel that:
