Sorry for re-emphasizing on this ...but does that mean..

Hey guys, i got calls from i k and l.
Graduation:MBBS(yeah a doctor) from a not so reputed institute
Work Ex: 3 months as a medical officer
Extra curriculars: Debates,Public Speaking(No Certis)
I was wondering what to expect in the pi round, apart from the y doc + mba combo??
Will i be tested on my acads??
I dont think the interviewers and i shall be having anything in common to discuss in the interview. SO how should i build a good rapport with them in those crucial 20-25 min?
One small querry ?
when Ill be grilled in academics will it be on subjects of my choice ?(fat chance , i can hear you say , but still )
I have a work ex of 31 months , will I be excused for being academically challenged ?
One last querry ... Are all Indore GD s case studies?
those having same date and time for 2 GDPI,,, call admissions office immediately...they are considerate enough to change the schedule...
I have some doubts:
1 I am a comp sc engineer with 2 years in Infy, now to show that eng. and then Infy was a thought decision, i was planning to say that want to be an enterprenuer in Technology field, but then i am afraid for questions that may come on it, hw u plan to start?? what u plan to start??? any suggestions on long term plan in keeping with my back ground ??: .
2 do we need to be specific in the specialization that i want to do my MBA in??? can we just say still not decided on it??
I found this on IIM INDORE site"in the second year marketing, finance, strategy and international business, operations management, human resources management and information technology". any other specilisation available??? good answer for this.
first of all thanks for this thread. i have calls form C, I and K. my profile -
10th - 83% (CBSE)
12th - 89.4%(CBSE)
Electrical & Electronics engineering - 74.4%(Anna University)
13 months with Infosys, working in a production support project. shifting to relativity technologies(a much smaller company) now, as a product support engineer(role with more responsibilities).
1. to what extent does the brand name of your company matter? will my shift to a lesser known company be seen as a disadvantage?
2. is there someone here from anna university who can let me know if my acads in coll will be a prob?
3. approximately how many interviews are conducted in one day, by iimi?
Respected seniors and my buddies,while the time is slipping away continuously I am continuously stuck at the mother of all questions? Why IIMs ,Why MBA & Why management?, though I haven't figured out any of these answers but i began to reckon that the conditional questions can be answered easily and the frustation is mounting.Adding to my woes is this fact that I found no one is seeming to discuss this ubiquitious question...please seniors enlighten me to delve deep inside is getting tougher ... or please suggest my book, an article or something that would help me undrstanding why i want to do first of all management itself?...
But nevertheless, I try again and state them,..., please help me in t6his process
1>The most of honest of reasons,is that I am not happy with my current prospect so i opted for cat,..., (oops! I donot think I can state that in an interview)
2>I feel that I am limited in my understanding of business world and doing an MBA would help me understanding the same.
3>I love to take initiatives on my own and doing an MBA would put me in right soes to take initiative
But while talking about work i am already acquinted about the stuff about the company like you mentioned such as competition , work done etc. i was more curious about the technical stuffs like coding, programming etc. which do not come into my domain but can come later if i were to stay in the company. Do i need to have any idea about them as well ?
thanks for your reply.
can you tell me what samcat is ?
