EXPECTED CUT OFF FOR THE SNAP ACCEPTING INSTITUTES BY URPERCENTILE.COM : 

(We expect less number of students  interested in joining SNAP affiliated institutes this year, so the cut off is likely to go down. Most likely, students getting score of 115 or more in SNAP 2006 will not be interested in joining SNAP affiliated institutes as with same level of performance at CAT , XAT , JMET they are likely to get calls from better institutes ) . We expect there to be more than one cut off list , the first list will be of higher cut off , the cut off mentioned below is the last cut off list)

SIBM ( MBA Dual and MBA Marcom)  :  A score of 88  will likely take you to the GD/PI level. If you have good work experience you can expect call at 79 also.
