Thats very true Himanshu..for GD/PI specific queries..I guess u cn hold it till CAT is done n over with..
Lot of Confusions..!!
Well the seniors including me have not been active because of our end term examinations..which have not really given us time to breathe...
For your queries..
1. Counselling even when 2nd list comes out is highly unlikely...but official word can not be obtained till tomorrow..today being Sunday..
2. Our seniors i.e. class of 2008 had received the results,just the way you all have..from their experience I can say that waitlisted means ranked beyond 360..lets not forget that in our batch ranks went upto 1200+ and so we see many people who have been shown "waitlisted"..pls do not muddle the same with "rejected"
3. Also when you have been waitlisted, its not on preference basis but you will get upgraded on that basis...this is what happened in our seniors' batch..
Taking an example, my preferences are suppose Fin, FT, HR, IB, IT...and I am waitlisted..if I clear i.e. substantial ppl do not accept offer, I wud first b chkd for Fin..ie. if seats r remaining in that after ppl ranked higher than me...if not, I ll b chkd for FT and so on.
I think this is a very logical and had taken place for our seniors and most probably is being used for you all..
Hope I have put some apprehensions to rest..
Cheers...Congrats n ATB ppl !!
