Anyone applying for the 2018 intake via the overseas route.
Anyone Any idea, when will the shortlist for IIM calcutta be out for those applying through Gmat? or is it already out?
Any news for overseas candidates? They released the CAT shortlist today
IIM-A Overseas Admission (I am not sure where to post this, but since this is mostly about NRI admissions, I thought this might work, but I'm sorry if this isn't appropriate!)
I'm a US Citizen and a senior in college at a top 10 university by the US News & World Reports (Does IIM-A care about what university you went to at all?). I am applying to IIM-A this year, but am very confused by the wealth of information online, so I was hoping for any help or advice about the overseas admission.
I took the GMAT a couple weeks ago, and I think my overall score is fine (I got a 780), but I got a 50 on the math, which is the 89% percentile. Do I need to retake the GMAT? I heard that for IIM-A, you need at least a 99% percentile? Or is that only for the overall score? I know last year you needed a 790 to get admitted without a masters or work experience? So do you think GMAT will matter more or less now? Because I'm only graduating this year, so I have neither a masters nor work experience, and I don't really want to bother going through (and paying for) the whole application process if I don't have a shot at all.
I was talking to my cousin in India, and I don't know how the CAT works at all actually, but he told me that you need a score of around a 320 on the CAT to get into IIM. But a 780 on the GMAT only translates over to a 298 according to IIM-A's online chart? I signed up to take the GMAT again, but now I'm kind of regretting that, because I don't know if I want to bother. I'm considering cancelling my test date. But I will take if I have to I suppose. Any recommendations?
Also, I'm a double major in both a science and a humanities. Should I put both of my majors down on my application or choose only one?
Also, I was looking at the application rating score formula. I would receive a 10 for rating A, a 10 for rating B, but only a 7 for rating C. Does this significantly lower my chance of admissions?
Thank you so much for any help you can provide me! I am very, very confused right now. I tried calling the admissions office and I e-mailed them as well, but have only received good answers about the logistical parts of the application.
Guys/Gals, for all those who got in Congrats...👏🍻
