. Regret - Not Selected

me too waitlisted...
cat %ile...96.8
work ex- 31 months

how does one know what course he/she has been waitlisted for? I gave ft as my first preference , followed by ib and hr...
does a waitlist mean u r out of the race for your 1dt preference?
anyone who has any clue...please answer...

got through Fore IB..awaiting other results before i decide.

i have a WL rank of 576...can anyone throw light on what this translates into ??? Is there any chance at all? n if yes, how will i hv to wait.

When do we get to know ? are they going to disclose the WL ranks anytime at all...or will it just remain a wait nd watch thing ? what happened to the word called "transparency" ..huh.

Strangely enough.after having secured a pathetic rank with a measly score of 91..i have been waitlisted! Was wondering about the WL being confirmed on the 19th ...since by then not many results ..in fact i doubt if any other result would be out by then...which would mean that the WL would not see much movement by 19th...and its only when the other results start pouring in...by march end and april beginning...will the WL actually start moving...
Consudering that ...the list on the 19th shouldnt be the final list...
is it? isnt it?

Had my GD/PI on 21st ..8:30 am..Venue IMT - G


After doc verifications..we were led to our GD rooms..GD topic chosen was on how films are responsible for the corruption of today's youth..GD was a total fish market....the panel meembers had that sadistic smile on their faces..that almost said..ki beta...tu log to gaye...
After an 8 min nautanki...we were told to summarize one by one...with the panel randomly calling out people's names toas dead bored and sick of the topic..so screwed up the summary royally!
that was followed by a written summary of the discussion ( yawwwnn! )

Anyways , we came back to the common room and then the PIs began...my serial no. being 12 , i had a nice long wait before i got a chance to go in...

Panel Members for the interview -
M1 - Perpetually smiling
M2 - Stern Looking
M3 - Somewhere between the two...most normal of the three

dont know who was who..

M2 ( looking at my application ) - So, you have done your grad in Eco and then Talent Mgmt for 2.5 years...and now you want to do an MBA in mkting..whats your problem ? U intend joining a finance company finally ?
ME - Blabber Blabber...talked about work ..etc etc ..and then said...finance definiteily is out of bounds for me ...you'll know that by looking at my QA score in CAT

M2 - Yea Yea,,,very low in QA , we have lots of quant in year 1 .. how will you manage
ME - Blabber on about how i know its a weakneses .. but will work in ..and have contunied to do so ...

M2 - Y is there a drastic drop in your % from 10th,12th to grad
ME - again blabber

M3 - So why do you want to leave such a good organization ? Why MBA now?
ME - Y mba answr..told me on how there will be a glass ceiling soon..gave them an example of a girl in my team with an mba...and how she added value greatly...

M3 - So what exactly is your aim in life?
ME - bla ...Bla...( could have done better )

M3- Tell me about your work
ME ........

M3 - What is marketin? How is it diffeent from branding ?
ME -( had some ideas ...told them what i thought it was)

M3 - you are very passionate about marketing ( god knows how he got this idea)
Me - SMILE SMILE ( dint know what to say , so i thought i might as well keep shut)

M2 asked some other stuff most of which i dont remember

All this while , M1 is quietly looking and giving a sly smile.I literally wanted to ask him what the deal was at one point in time ...

M2 - ok , thanks , interview's over
M1, M2 , M3 in unison - All the best!

Me - Thank you

phewww...dont know what to make of it..

This one's for all of us...

Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place, and I don't care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me or nobody is going to hit as hard as life.

But it ain't about how hard you hit, it is about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much can you take and keep moving forward.

That's how winning is done! Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain't you. You're better than that.
