Hello everyone!

To those who got through...congratulations!

You're in for a rollercoaster ride of two years... a little unnerving, sometimes scary, a whole lot exciting and once you're off, you're gonna want to get right back on it!

To those who haven't...good luck with your other calls. If MICA's still your dream insti, give us another go next year. We'll look forward to seeing you here.

Regards,

At a meeting of advertising heads at National Cash Register which was going nowhere, this young Sales Manager jumped to his feet and yelled The trouble with every one of us is that we dont think enough. We don't get paid for working with our feet - we get paid for working with our heads. Any man on the selling force could make two dollars where he now makes one if he would think along the right lines. I Dont Think has cost the world millions of dollars. Who?



The questions are interesting but answers are more interesting

D'oh....not John Watson...Thomas Watson...of IBM fame!
Try Guessing this famous personalities



In 1923, he left Kansas and boarded a train to California with $40 in his pocket. When a fellow passenger asked him about his intentions, he said Im going to direct great Hollywood motion pictures. After seeing The Jazz Singer he wrote to his brother: "I think this is, Old Man, Opportunity rapping at our door. Slap a big mortgage on everything weve got and let us go after this thing in the right manner." In 1938, he received honorory degrees from both Harvard and Yale universities, and also accepted an award from the League of Nations. He started the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow center in USA. Who?

This person wrote about himself thus :"Principal virtues : keeps his nails clean. Principal faults : that he has no family, is bad tempered and has a poor digestion. One and only wish : Not to be buried alive. Greatest sin : that he does not worship Mammon. Important events in his life : None". Who?

He has launched a university at Elk Grove Village, Illinois. President Nixon once met him and asked "What is it now, eight or nine billion?" To which he replied, "Mr.President, it is 12 billion." When his company's market value surpassed U.S.Steels, Senator Lloyd Bentson complained Something is wrong with our economy when the stock market is long on _____ and short on steel At the age of 72, he acquired the San Diego Padres baseball team. Till the age of 52 he was a peddler of milk-shake machines. Who?

I think this is John Watson. Or could it be Gillette??:whatthat:

The Mican....what you just said about your friend getting the confirmation letter...well...that has happened to me as well...am also through to Mica...apparantly an international applicant
through the Gmat dropped out so I am in....or thats what i believe happened....


Kari



Hey Kari,

Congrats on making it through!

Explain this whole "international applicant" thing to me.Does your admission letter clearly state that you are one?

I would've thought that only NRIs and international(read intl. citizens) would qualify for the tag of "international applicant". I got in on my GMAT scores as well but I'm not looking forward to paying approx 8 lakhs instead of the (already overpriced) 6 when I have no reason to!

Hey ppl!

You can add me to the list....I've finally decided to join MICA after all.

ATB to you guys on the waitlist!!:)

Thanx for the welcome and all the info pa-gal and amaranthine.
As for the 'discount', if I have to send 2.38 now then that's just not possible. I'll just send the 87,000 then.
Who is going to pay a DD of 2.38 lacs I wonder?
And why are they not providing a receipt or confirmation themselves? That's strange. Shouldn't they let us know officially that our admission is secure? And there has been this whole mess with the waiting list ppl. The MICA Admission process seems rather fishy/unprofessional to me.... :whatthat:

Hey CollectedSoul!

I am a little disheartened by the way this whole admission process has been handled,too. :huh:

And although it seemed like you weren't interested anyway...what happened to your XIMB results?

Hey have the bangalore guys got their letter ???? Pl do le me know


Hey Tushar! I'm in B'lore and I got my call letter today. I'm sure you'll get yours soon.

The XIMB call letter was the most informative and helpful call letter of the three I got this year. A definite plus point for XIMB....as compared to MICA.

But what really got my attention was the loan offer from SBI. I approached my local SBI abt an edu loan for MICA and had a lil communication problem with the loan officer. It was great to see that if I decide to choose XIMB; that,atleast, will not be a problem!!!

P.S: I would still appreciate any input on the MICA vs XIMB topic!!!!
Hate to break into the midst of all this MICA bashing,but I've got to ask this question
If you had a choice between MICA and XIMB(Mktng), which would you choose and why?
I've been granted admission to both schools and although my mind is pretty much made up, I still want to hear what others have to say.

(Mods, this question's on the XIMB board as well....for a fair and balanced set of responses frm the junta of both schools!!
Please lemme know if that sorta thing is frowned upon...I'll edit one of 'em immediately!)
