I am sorry if u find many people on this thread to be a less evolved speciesu see our ancestors were baboons , and we havent changed much , not sure about Micans though . About sour grapes, u would know if u have to settle for something (in this case an insti) that is way below where you almost made it. Of course, I on my part hope that neither you or anybody else here gets to taste those grapes. And according to you since its not enough to want something badly and that it takes something more are you referring to the backdoor?
Congratulations to all those who have finally made it. Those who didn't - tough luck. You've probably realised that wanting something badly isn't enough to get you that. Takes a little bit more than that.
I'm sure the batch that's coming in will be a rocking one... barring a few exceptions... law of averages and all. We've tracked what's been said in these threads and we have a fair idea of the kind of people who are coming in... whether they will "screw life for MICA" ... we will wait and watch.
To put an end to the debates about engineers at MICA... they are neither at an advantage nor at a disadvantage. They are equally clueless about the courses when they come in. We study almost 40 courses in the first year of PGPCM. The BMS/BBA folks find some of them easy. The Eco grads find some others easy. And the engineers are comfy with some other subjects. As for Genetics/Psychology/History/Literature grads... we plod through most of the courses and do well at what we enjoy most.
And please, some courses cannot be dealt with by creativity - you'll find what happens to the supposedly "creative" folks here soon enough. At the same time - numbers may be the foundation for management in practice, but numbers don't give the answers to everything. Only 1/4th of my batch are engineers - a lot less compared to most other Management Schools.
You don't have to be an engineer to become a marketing manager - you just need to be good at it
Yes, there will be the feelings of sour grapes ... it takes a higher degree of evolvement to get over that. Who knows... you'll probably going a place that is more suited to who you are.
Those who've made it - you may love MICA or you may wonder what the hell you're doing there. Just remember - you chose it, just the same way that MICA chose you.
Class of 2006

This be my first post. I am sitting for cat05, so visiting threads of some bschools i wanna apply
Been following some chat on this thread - lots of talk on results and the pandey bros. I wanna know 1 thing - is there ANY Mica Alumni who has made it to top in ad world? Like Rama Bijapurkar from IIM-A and Jagdeep Kapur from JBIMS and Prasun Joshi from IMT. I dont know of any and i think anyone wanna take admission at Mica must ponder on this.
