What this Helpline is NOT
1) We don't help you with change of your GD/PI dates nor do we help with stuff like, "What happens if my DD reaches the admissions office 20 mins after the deadline?" All such procedural queries are best addressed on other forums. Please understand that the admissions department in an IIM is fully independent of the student body addressing questions on this forum.
2) Please don't type comments asking you to be added in some Facebook/Orkut group. Such comments will be deleted immediately.
3) Absolutely no abuse of any institution or the representatives of those institutions will be tolerated. All selection criteria were available in advance and the students addressing your queries are not responsible for the philosophy of the administration for shortlisting the students. Individuals indulging in such behaviour will be banned and their IP Addresses blocked.
Our objective is to ensure this helpline is useful for all those reading this thread. All random spam will be deleted.
All views expressed on any issue on this forum by the media committee and the students of IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Calcutta, IIM Indore, IIM Kozhikode and IIM Lucknow are views of the individuals and CANNOT be attributed as the official stand of the institution. This attempt by them is to help students and to promote the best aspects of their own institution. The administration and the management of the esteemed institutions have no relation to this initiative whatsoever.
