That maybe sheds some light on the selection procedure. Or, makes it hazier all the more? ??:
Is the process they mentioned is practically possible? Would it be the one they follow?
- As mentioned by Mr. Sunil Rai, they receive 15,000 applications every year. According to their process of segregrating each application into S, A, B, C categories, they would have to go through the each and every SOP, as it then becomes a qualitative scrutiny. Rejecting 50% applicants in software filter, spending even 10 minutes per SOP, still requires 75000 minutes of review work!!
Apurv, u didnt clarify an important myth surrounding SPJain! Do they maintain a male-female ratio for their Full-time MBA programes?



I totally agree with the time factor and don't want to take a chance with my sops,i have taken help from a couple of guys running a website.you can check for more help on writing sops for SPjain.

Hi Everybody,

On behalf of Admission Committee of SPJIMR, let us give a few clarifications to some of the myths surrounding us and to your queries.

  1. The shortlisting of candidates before CAT was done till 2 years ago. Last year no candidate was selected before CAT and this year also we will be selecting candidates only after CAT/XAT results after having complete details about the candidates.
  2. We like to put some light on our shortlisting criteria. SPJIMR does not put all the emphasis on CAT/XAT scores or work experience. We follow the following 5 criteria for selecting students:
    1. CAT/XAT scores
    2. Work Experience
    3. Past Academic Record
    4. Achievements
    5. Extra - curricular Activities

  3. Further, these are selection criteria and not elemination criteria. We do not eliminate a student if he is not from a very good reputed institute, or if he has not participated in lot of extra - curriculars. What happens is that if you are very good at any of the 5 points mentioned above, you have a very high chance of getting shortlisted for interview.
  4. This year the application form is completely online, as it was last year. The applications have started and the last date for submission is November 30, 2006.
  5. The application form contains only 2 subjective questions, which again have a word limit. This allows us to go through each and every application. At a speed of 2 minute per application and with a strength of 40 people working on shortlisting, it comes to less than 13 hrs. per person. The process which we have mentioned is very much feasible and SP has been doing it for years.
  6. SPJIMR does not follow any male/female ratio.
  7. SPJIMR does not prefer work experience as such. As we have mentioned earlier, it is just one of the criteria. Depending upon the specialization you choose, we have different weightage for the work-experience. Please note that we do not put too much emphasis on any of the criteria. The students we select are on the basis of all 5 criteria.
  8. SPJIMR does not give more emphasis to engineers. Out current batch is comprised of students from various streams including CA, B.Com., BBA, BMS, MBBS, Engineers from different streams, BA and others.
EDITED: Thanks for the clarifications, but please stop at that! No advertising :)

Best of Luck for your exams.:thumbsup:

Regards
Admission Committee

There are a lot of ambiguities in this system:
eG : Someone takes mining at an NIT.fairly easy to get branch, but good coll
Someone takes Electronics at a famous college in the region not known nationally. Really tough to get into.......
So to get a S in the SP Jain rating system , the person should have taken up the NIT , even though the branch is not interesting , but will be given A for the other coll even though it is tougher to get into that college for that particular branch !!!!!!!


I agree with santigo.
