The Students’ Affairs Council of IIM Ahmedabad has started an ‘Ask the students’ initiative to help out IIMA shortlisted aspirants with the next round of the selection procedure. Last year, this round consisted of essay writing and an interview. IIMA shortlisted candidates can mail all their queries to ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’. The common queries will be put up on the student-run blog http://askthestudents.org/ while more personal queries will be replied to via mail or the aspirants will be called up by the students themselves. This is the first time that the students have come up with such an initiative at IIMA.
This is an entirely student driven initiative and has no involvement of the institute or the admissions committee. We hope that this maiden venture will be helpful to aspirants and could be taken up at a bigger level next time.
