Hi All,
I am applying for EPGP program this month.
Regarding the essays, the adcom asks us to use an additional sheet if required but doesn't clearly mention the word limit. Can someone answer what is the suggested word limit for essays.

Thanks ~ Krishna

Hi Chaitu,

I would suggest not to use additional sheets until you think it's absolutely necessary. If I would have been the evaluator of your essays, and have to review 15-20 other such essays, I would have certainly wanted applicants stay within the word limits :-). However, I haven't applied for Indore EPGP before, but based on other B-Schools word limits for essays, it can be 250-750 words, so I guess anything around 500-700 should be fine. But then final decision is yours.

Joy

Hello Everyone,
Do anyone knows about the placement & kind of offers people got for this course for 2009-10 batch.
I am interested for this. But, want to know the details first.

Hi, I am an aspirant for IIM I 1 year course. Can anyone please let me know if they conduct telephonic interviews for international applicants? did it happen last year?....thanks in advance.

Hi,

The EPGP course is a good alternative for those who could not make in other IIMs one yr course. The time line is also very good and useful. It will save your a year approximately. The cost is not an issue looking to the upcoming market and acceptability of IIMs' 1 year MBA.

Good thing is that one can use CAT scores here for the same. A good overall CAT score is good enough to get a call and admit. Here the sectional cut off doesnt apply, generally.

But be careful, like other IIMs, this would also be focussing a lot on interview and write ups. So take good guidance. For this, as there is scarcity of any guiding institute for that, I found that general education based at bangalore and run by ISB, HEC, Harvard allumni is a good choice.

Please visit them at **********.com and go thorugh their site.

All the best.

Guys, I am current EPGP student and have volunteered to help the aspirants for next batch. So far i was active on another thread http://www.pagalguy.com/discussions/iim-indore-epgp-2009-10-admission-process-and-beyond-25042716

Seems the discussion has moved to this thread, request one of you to close the previous thread and give a link to this new thread. If you have any question for me, please feel free to ask. Also, please note that I am not associated with EPGP office and my views will be personal and to the best of my knowledge.

Feel free to use additional sheets if you have something worth mentioning. Dont let the word limit stop you. Though, i would suggest to not cross 300 word limit.


Hi satanmaycare, for international applicants, how/where do we inform adcom in the application for requesting a telephonic interview?

also, do we need to send the GMAT score via GMAC (via the institute code), or sending the score sheet alongwith the application would suffice?

Please confirm.......

Mention it in your application. In the special notes section or just in the end.

Please confirm.......

You can send it via GMAC too (the insti code is given) but for now, just a self attested Xerox along the application form should suffice.
