Do top B schools like IIMs ABC, FMS admit GEMs from tier-3 engineering colleges?
If they do what are the placments (summer and final) like for them?
Thanks for addressing the elephant in the room. A lot of the aspirants have this question. To answer it in a word, I would say: Yes.
B-Schools value diversity and look for candidates who would add value to class discussions. Academic prowess is definitely a spike that makes it easy for the interviewers to chalk out a candidate. However, that said, they also look at your work experience, CAT score, interview, hobbies among other factors. If you’re too strong on any of these, chances are that you would convert the call. So to keep it short, if you’ve scored well and have a genuine spike in your profile you will convert it.
Hope that helps.
P.S: There are many people I know personally who have graduated from tier-3 engineering colleges and are not students at prestigious B-Schools.
