They have the GMAT shortlist percentile cut-off at 97 (GMAT 740). And only 10 people were shortlisted. If you think you you might be one of them you can probably send them an email.

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.
