The cutoff for the '08 batch was 90.1%ile overall.

As regards the admissions process, it's pretty much like other colleges. We take XAT scores. Based on your performance in XAT you'll be called for a GD/PI. The brochure was available after XAT exams last time.

The admissions brochure is not out yet. Will let you guys know once it is.

Do check out the Director interview in my signature to get a clear picture of the admissions process.

Amidst 1st trimester this is a welcome relief to talk to some of the future libaites...
Thread has started at the right time...

Plz can u tell me what are the no. of seats in LIBA.
Also, do they emphasize on sectional cutoffs or only overall.

Hi there,

The only criteria last year was to score positive marks in each section of your paper. (In terms of absolute marks, not %ile) However, the rules might get revised this year... will keep you posted as and when news comes in.

The application forms will be out in some time. Will post here when the forms are out. It's an online process. LIBA is one of the few colleges whose forms are available post XAT.
