I am in a little bit of confusion here... I had converted PGDCM and was waitlisted at 16 for PGDM.. I filled the acceptance form and sent the DD for PGDCM earlier, go the confirmation too for the DD from IIM-C.
Now, I have been confirmed for the PGDM program too .. If I want to opt for the PGDM now, instead of the earlier PGDCM.. what should I do?
And, would the earlier DD suffice for the PGDM also... ?
Moderators and puys please help
First of all congratulations to all those who converted the call.
For me, this was the first heart break of the season. First negative and the wait for other calls, is sure going to increase the nervousness. Eagerly waiting for some positive news.
Got my name in the immersion list...
Specialization - Finance
Basis - Score Based
CAT score - 99.99
Interview date - 16th Feb, 2012
Venue - Mumbai
As far as the final selection is concerned. We talked to one of the main moderators during the GI, he told that for final selection everything is taken into consideration. Academics, CAT/XAT/GMAT scores, Extra and co-curricular activities, GI-1 score, GI-2 score, profile, related work exp. etc....
Lots and lots of calculation :wow:, keeping fingers crossed...
3 co curricular
any idea what all fits into it (given havent published papers, won olympiads etc. )
GettaFix SaysFor the 150 word essay, for the part which says ,"how would you like to address the challenge?", do we have to write how we would like the govt to address the challenge or how we individually will address the challenge (try to solve the problem by ourselves)?

@TheBond- A big thank you for coming forth with your experience. It's almost impossible to gauge one's chances by reading the experience though. I have known people who got through even after making massive blunders . Its all about how you project yourself and how you react to such tricky situations. Great score, keep your hopes high. On a lighter note you have BCLI still with you . So you can afford to be a little relaxed . ATB
Hi Krishna, I am in general category.
After all,they calculate the composite score and as ur percentile is very high,there are great chances in your converting.
Did you carry the certificates for each co-curricular activity u have mentioned above? Do they ask for them? Is attestation needed for the photocopies?how long was the interview held?Please tel ur category as well
I agree with you completely, friend. Even I knew about the biometric in UID, but I don't know how I could not recollect it in the interview, despite so much poking around. And since, it was such a common info, that's why I consider my selection option as REJECT... :-(
keeler.drummer SaysSorry to barge in but the way aadhar is unique is by biometric info. And I think one should know this info and your whole interview was about aadhar only. The whole controversy about UID with home ministry was about duplication of info.
They were asking about the essay you wrote in the form to most of the people, but didn't ask me about it. As far as the greatest challenge is concerned, I didn't find anyone to whom this question was asked.
Thanks for quoting ur experience !
But Didn't they ask anything from you regarding the essay you must have written in the form, "the greatest challenge in India and how would u like to address it?
and strange they didn't ask "Why Mba" ?
Good Luck though !
