ok, seeing all the anxious waitlisted people here, and being waitlisted myself for some other insti... I really wish to say something that i have been telling myself for the last few days... Many people who have been selected for GIM but may have been waitlised for other instis wud hv also sent their DD's unsure of making it to the other insti ... like XL, XIMB(one eg is me).. i paid the fees for GIM because i am not sure of converting my other call.... and hence dint wanna let go off this seat.... so, i sent the DD... coz i believe the fees shud be refunded after subtracting 1000 Rs.. So all is not lost even if the admin office says that they have received fees for all 120 candidates... keep hoping and keep praying....

any tips for fellow b.com guys wid work-ex......i'm also pursuing an additional course....do they dwell deep into the subjects??
thanks in adv


see, it depends on ur work ex... as in how long it is ... they can go anywhere i believe... with me, we talked abt my course for around 5 mins...n not much of acads... but there was some body in my batch who was from economics background plus work ex... when they asked him , which was ur fav subject... he quoted one n also said that its beens quite some time that i did that coz of my work ex... They rather were like - u must be remembering something of it even though "its been quite some time" ... n they grilled him on that like anything .... so nothing can be sure ... i guess he got nervous n all... n they sensed it .... so grilled him... just prepare one subject or two if u can from grad... n know something abt ur additional course... If u cant prepare the entire of ur add course then just tell them that ur still to complete it... so u dont know the whole of it... what is importanat is to stay calm... n dont get nervous... when i was going inside, i just told myself, that i am going in for a discussion ... it helped me to stay confident n be myself... all the best ...

Had my GD/PI today ... 12 o clock slot... Reached MFC well before time... took walk around the campus... must say the campus is really huge... Anyways, getting down to the point... Wontt get into the procedure as it has already been explained pretty well by @sgx100... Our GD topic was "WE DONT LEARN FROM OUR HISTORY, WE REPEAT IT!!" discussed gud no of points ranging from indian politics, realtions between india n pakistan, indian ecocomy, etc.... so overall a gud GD .. everone got a chance tospeak... -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Then we had to wait for the interview ... our batch interviews started at around 3... On asking other batches, people with eco(hons) background were asked acad based questions..... a lot of people were grilled on why MFC??? Be very clear abt this ques as they are most likley to ask this question speacially from people with non-commerce background... There were people who were being grilled on acads... some people were also being asked ques like why is the stock market crashing??? What share wud u invest in??? Howz the sensex calculated??? what are the criteria for selecting companies for inclusion in sensex???? what is mkt capitalisation ???? But one thing to remember is that its OK if u r not able to answer all the ques... i am saying this because even i was very tensed before the interview about the type of ques that can be asked... but the panel is really cool... Just be sure of ur reason for why MFC??? .... ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My interview details ---- Unlike in other cases, my interview dint start with ;why mfc;tell us abt urself;... On the contrary, they starting read the form submitted earlier , ;u have done ur grad from this, got this much percent, job here etc etc.... left it.... Now what r u doing??? Told them about a course in finance that i am pursuing ... then some ques on that... what is it about? what subjects are u covering ... Said, investmenst, derivatives, probablity.... Then one Panelist asked- what is the realtion between all the three??? Told ...... Then what was ur favourite subject in b com, other than finance ... obviuosly because that will be ur favourite now considering that u r here... I said , ;Sir, it has genuinely been my favourite subject, not plainly because of this interview , i was inclined towards it , that is why took it as a specialisation ... (said this because i had brushed up only finance subjects), then some questions on that ... got confused in one question , then the panelist who asked explained the funda... Then some one asked , why u left the job??? Told them.... Then did u apply for MFC last yr ??? No sir... Why will that be??? Sir, wanted to gain some first hand experience first... then ..... what was ur cat percentile??? What will u do if not selected??? as in what other calls??? Told them will take up icfai hyderabad if not selected.... thank u isha ... thank u sir.... thats it .....

I had a call from both MIB and MHROD as per the list put up on the college, not according to the list on the net(had my name only in the MHROD list)... When i asked the admissions office, they said that i have qualified for both ... but in the GD/PI schedule uploaded on their website my name is only there for MHROD... I am totally clueless about my shortlist status... Its very careless on the part of the administration ... the only thing i can do now is wait for the call letter... just not liking this...

I Must Says
One doubt from my side, sub prime mortgage crisis is the only reason for U.S economy recession?


Firstmost, there is no recession in the US economy as of now... Yes, the economy growth rate has slowed down... The stock markets arent performing that well... The reason for slow growth can be attributed to the housing sector crash ... coz in US the boom in the Housing sector gave a push to the construction industry which in turn created employment... But now with a fall in demand for houses, the reverse is happening ... The US recession is a very detailed topic and i think we shud be discussing it as a separate topic in a day or two ... We can then probably analyse if actually the US is heading for a recession or not....
