Which institutes to apply to?

With the CAT 2015 result around the corner, most of the aspirants would be tensed regarding their chances at top institutes and would be hoping for a good haul when it comes to bagging calls from various institutes. There would be another question posing a lot of students: Which institutes to apply to? Learningroots has compiled a list of bschools which should be an indicator when it comes to selecting the ones that you would want to get into.

We have compiled the list of IIMs with their expected cutoffs, and a list of non-IIM institute with their expected cutoffs and then a few more which are not very rigid with sectional and overall cutoffs and would give you a chance of getting into a fair bschool this season.

Things we wish to clarify

  1. Instead of taking the information on simple numerical terms (which institute ranks above the other, etc.) it would be better to consider a holistic picture. The information is in the form of groups and we are not claiming that a particular institute is ranked above because it is head and shoulders above another institute. It is a mere combination of perception, judgment and feedback from these institutes that we have received and we would suggest you do some research of your own before accepting the premise
  2. We have added hyperlinks to each individual institute name to facilitate browsing and have added the admission page wherever the link was available
  3. The name of tests that are used to call students for subsequent rounds are mentioned in front of the institute. In the last bunch of institutes, there are many that take into consideration either of CAT/XAT/MAT/CMAT/MH CET scores and so, we have not put it explicitly. You may check the individual websites for more information
  4. The cutoffs are again indicators and are not exact values. If you have a score of 95+ or are expecting a 95+ percentile, you can budget for +/- 2 percentile and then target specific institutes
  5. This is to help aspirants figure out the various options available and then take a call
  6. In case there are broken links, do let us know in the comments section
  7. In case you need some clarity with regard to selecting between bschools, you can drop a comment
