Hey OA 95.75 (VA 95 and QA 93) Any chances for MDI or MDI HR? And do these programs have different cutoffs?December 28, 2014 at 12:51 am #2122Sankalp SharmaParticipant
CAT-95.75, VA-95.1, QA-92.87, X-95.8%, XII- 81.2%, Btech-6.3,fresher ..Also Does the HR program have a different cutoff?December 28, 2014 at 10:13 am #2127
@sankalp Your CAT score looks good, so you might get a call. But you need to justify your low CGPA in B.Tech. And yes, the cutoff is different for the HR program.December 28, 2014 at 12:25 pm #2129prajeshguptaParticipant

@prajesh The positives in your profile: Overall CAT percentile looks good and the work experience is also in the related sector. Negatives: Verbal score is a little less. Same with the graduation percentage. So, let’s hope for a call.
BTW the category doesn’t matter in MDI process, as everyone is considered equal. There’s no reservation system.December 29, 2014 at 1:24 pm #2196prajeshguptaParticipant
@sravanti: Does graduation percentage cause a problem during placements? Will it be a factor for rejection by the interview panel?
Also, I heard that MDI gives 70% weightage to CAT score, so do you really think there is a chance of a convert at my percentile?December 29, 2014 at 7:35 pm #2213
@prajesh: 1. We can’t generalize things. Considering placements, some companies give weightage to previous acads and others don’t. If you are asking about B-school interviews, previous acads more or less matter. In case you get a shortlist, I’m sure you would be asked about “why 61% in btech” in the MDI interview. So, if you provide a proper and convincing justification, your low score won’t be a factor for rejection.
2. It is a misconception that MDI has higher weightage for CAT score. I have seen people who couldn’t convert at 99.5+. So, if your profile is good and you do your WAT-GD-PI well, you will definitely convert.December 30, 2014 at 8:53 am #2225Anant SanganeriaParticipant

My CAT scores and profile is as follows :
QA- 92.58 and VA- 93.76
B.Tech. (Mechanical) – 8.489 (CGPA) / 76.4 %
Work Ex. – Working in family business ( a metal trading company) since July 2013.
Achievements- My team and I had been honored by Manufacturers’ Association of Faridabad for developing an F1 racing car and participating in a national level racing competition organized by SAE INDIA.
Extra Curricular- I have participated and won prizes in Fine Arts, Literary and technical events at University level. I was an active member of the respective collegiate clubs. I am a budding painter.
Please tell me what are my chances of getting a call from MDI and also the chances of converting that call. Awaiting your reply. And kindly throw some light on the IM program offered by MDI. I got to know that students have to look for internships on their own under this program. Is it so ?
Thanks and Regards,
