My most profuse apologies. I just realized that I hadn't put in my B exp.
Profile:
10th- 80.83% (assam board)
12th- 88.80% (CBSE)
Grad- 8.58/10.00 (NIT D- CSE)
Currently in my Final year, Comp Sci at NIT D.

Venue: The Kenilworth, Kolkata
Date: 2/4/2008, 2.00 p.m. slot
GD: Topic was about " the Preaching Employee". A guy Anthony has found discipline and salvation in religion, he was previously a good for nothing insaan. He works at a relative, Ajay's company. Now he goes around preaching to all the employees who are irritated no end.
10 mins to think, 15 to discuss and 10 to write summary and those 2 questions.
Very disciplined and peaceful discussion, tended twds overlapping speeches twice but were resolved quickly. I had a good GD, easily among top 2 in the GD.

Somehow finished the writeup in time, handwriting looked like crazy noodles on a dirty frying pan. :-P

The PI:
i was the second person to be called in. there were 2 Profs in our panel.
Since its been a long time i'll just give out the questions asked.
1. Why MBA?
2. About family background
3. Why leave Comp sci?
4. then Y do Comp sci in the first place?
5. You wrote abt... self-improvement... ppl don't want to do all this at IIM B, they only want finances...

6. Y albert Einstein as the most influential?
7. His theories are defunct... then y?

it lasted a mere 10 mins.
They cross-questioned me a lot, but i felt that I did well.

A feel-good experience on the whole, My best of all the 6 calls.

all i can say is..dun lose hope...my uncle was the topper of iim ahd. batch o 93.....and he was quiet in the gd..and in the interview they asked him why wasnt he talking..and his answer simply was..because everyone else was...and they dint mind his humor..and he had a good pi thereafter..and he was in....so we as candidates obv. always underestimate our chances...
plus..this holds more significance in Bangalores interview..where if u had gone thru the weightages...the gd content weightage is quite insignificant...so all the best....and lets jus keep fingers crossed for the results.

Better late than never......puys here is my gd/pi experience at IIMB..

It was a feel good PI..The way they took the PI,it was obvious that they have decided after the gd only that they wont take me..Anyway,it lasted for 15 mins..
I know that I wont get at IIMB, but I am very happy coz I have learnt a lot from this experience..

IIMB Rocks!!!!!!!!!!

Better late than never......puys here is my gd/pi experience at IIMB..

Date: 02nd april 2008..9am slot..
Venue: Kenilworth,Kolkata..

This was my best call..So,was a bit tensed bout it..Reached there at around 8:15..I was having few probs in my college..So,was a bit mentally disturbed......
Anyway,it was a learning experience for me.......

GD:
It was a case study..8 ppl were present out of 9..Got a frnd from my coll in that panel itself...

CASE STUDY:

It was bout a retail shop of America which has a lot of popularity in the market..The customers completely trust the products that the retail shop offers..Recently,the company started sourcing Chinese products as the profit of the company increases coz of the outsourcing..Now,another company Costco,which manufacture toys, has been brought to the court by the American customers because they has imported Chinese toys in which an illegal paint has been used..Now,what shd the retail shop do??If it stops sourcing from China suddenly,then it might effect the relationship with China..

DISCUSSION:
It was a very bad discussion..One guy was constantly speaking n not letting others speak..I tried to chip in once or twice but was cut very soon by him..He dominated the 15 mins..That is why the discussion went pathetic..

Now,the worst part is still there..We were given the papers to write down the 2 questions n the summary..Suddenly,one of the panelists pointed at me n asked me if i want to say anythin..Now,it was so DAMN UNEXPECTED that i kept quite..

PI:
I was 3rd in my panel..So,wasnt a long wait..

PANEL MEMBERS INTRO:

Mr.Prabhu: Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (p1)

Mr.Ojha: Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (p2)

& me

PI:

I was called inside the room..
me: Good morning sirs..
p1: Why were u so quiet in the gd??
me: Coz of that aggressive guy..I was cut down so many times by him etc etc..
p1: When u join IIMB,u will have aggressive guys all around..What will u do then??
me: I will learn to tackle it..But,this was my first time..
p2: Now,that we are not that aggressive,can u tell us what u wanted to say??
me: Yes sir.....said.....Then went on to say that the discussion wasnt in the proper direction n all..
p2: Ya,exactly..
p1: Tell me something bout the summer trng that u did..
me: Told in details..
p1: Why **** as the most influential character??
me: said..
p2: Few questions on him..
me: Could answer..
p1: What is meant by International businees exposure??
me: said..
p1: Why is it that international business students come to India for internships??
me: All managers shd have an idea bout the business pilcies of all countries..
p1: No,they have strted coming very recently,why??
me: Sir,economic growth rate??
p1: No,somethin else..
me: Donno sir..

p1 & p2: Ok,u may go now..Thank u..
me: Thank u Sirs..

It was a feel good PI..The way they took the PI,it was obvious that they have decided after the gd only that they wont take me..Anyway,it lasted for 15 mins..
I know that I wont get at IIMB, but I am very happy coz I have learnt a lot from this experience..

dude, atleast give some hope to the poor souls like me wid lone calls.. .. and hey, someone please call up iimB and get the first hands information!! after all, max impact wud b bore by the iimB calls coz only iimB has the history of admitting ppl wid lone iimB calls!

wat say guys?


i called up iimB just now.. the guy who answered seemed pretty confident abt tomorrow, but then wasn't sure abt the SC's decision, he told me that he hadnt received ne information on the same..

ALSO, he asked me to check www.iimb.ernet.in for the results, not the official CAT site (catiim.in).. hope that clarifies the site to be refreshed tomorrow.. .. i also enquired abt the time, he said, "netime after 9 am".. hope this relieves a few!
