Clash of the IIMs

Hundreds and even thousands of CAT qualified aspirants are in a big mess because of clash of interview dates with several prestigious institutes. IIMs, SPJIMR and NMIMS are one of those few institutes where interviews are scheduled on February 15.

After the results of CAT 2012 are declared, various B-schools started announcing their call dates.NMIMS released its dates on January 24 and SPJIMR on January 31, the new IIMs announced the dates on February 2. The last minute announcement has left many in the lurch.

According to sources, regarding the clash of interview dates, the IIM-Ranchi has said that it will consider date change provided interviews overlap with older IIMs or only on medical grounds.

However, it is unlikely that all date change requests will be considered as aspirants will try to choose dates as per their convenience. The younger IIMs have approximately called 10,000 aspirants for interview.

As some experts say : Anybody can request for change in interview date. If it’s accepted, then it’s well and good but if it’s not accepted then it’s choice of priorities. It’s an experience of managing things.
