Now a days life @GIM is quite helter-skelter with half of junta staying at old campus and rest at new campus... but we will be all together pretty soon...


So how is the new campus?
The Mid-Summers are over ....n so is the Freshers

Now is the week for Committees and clubs for their selection procedures
GIM has a variety of clubs which work for different purposes...

Each of these clubs have their different selection procedures which start at odd times such as 1 am n go on till 9 am ....n then we have lectures to attend at 10

The selection process may involve GDs,multiple interviews,presentations,creativity test,CVs,SOPs.....n many more ...trust me its lot more rigorous then the selection into GIM

I have got through placement committee hence m free from this ...but many of my friends are still fighting to get through the esteemed clubs......GIM has around 13 different clubs

I am late by 3 weeks.. However better late than never..
Amidst a lot of hopes, speculations, excitement and apprehensions, this day has finally arrived I am in a B-school, Goa Institute of Management. As the new campus @ Sanquelim is shaping up, few of the PGP-1 guys are staying at the old campus @ Ribandar. Though staying here means 2 hours of commuting for the next few days, but its a great experience to have our seniors (PGP-2) around, interact with them, know and appreciate the GIM way of living. All of them are really helpful and supportive. And it has been a great experience so far.
Coming to the campus, most of them might be aware that the old campus (Santa Casa De Misericordia) has a legacy of its own and the new campus at Sanquelim, once completed, would undoubtedly be one of the best b-school campuses in the country. Right now its a matter of just some weeks, but as the saying goes - Rome was not built in a day. The campus is located on a hill overlooking Sanquelim town one side and the Western Ghats on the remaining sides. Never ending stretches of greenery in every direction is a feast to anyones eyes. The classrooms and faculty block look amazing. Hostel rooms, the furniture and other amenities are way above what one would ask for. Those who have their rooms window facing the Western Ghats are bound to fall in love with the nature (if not already) and would wish to get locked in their rooms forever.
and yea, as mentioned by my batchmate.. we had a great time @ mid summers and freshers nite.. and sleep has definitely become a luxury now..
Thats all for now I will try to be back soon..

It Feels as though I am posting after years on PG...thoroughly missed PG

The 1st 2 weeks have been quite eventful at GIM. Life is like a roller coaster....Getting a feel already how fast my PGDM would get over at this speed

It started with the rigorous selection procedure( had almost 4-5 rounds) to get into the Placement Committee.Followed by the Mid-Summers Nite , wherein the PGP1s perform to entertain the PGP2s .Its Compulsory to perform for each and every individual. PGP1s were at their best showcasing their talents - Dance,Drama,Music,Mimicking et al.
This was followed by the Freshers party at the IVY lounge till 3 in the morning.

Post this life has been whirlwind here - Presentations,case studies, lectures and more case studies ......

As i write this post some guys have their selection process for joining the Alumni Committee..which may go on till 3-4 in the mornin

An MBA its a 24 cycle......the campus never Sleeps .
Sleep is a Luxury!!!!!

Hello Peeepaaals!!!Ab nahi koi post daal raha hai toh hum kya karein...Log jeewan ki bhaag daud me itne masroof ho liye hain ki kisi ko is thread ki sudh hi nahi rahi :)Mera jiwan filhal theek thaak chal raha hai...lakhon ka target diya hai company ne....but I am well on my way to exceeding it...so god has been kind to me...I am travelling the length and breadth of Ghaziabad...turned 3 shades darker and met more Baniyas than I can handle..and have developed an awesome respect for their business acumen...This post is pretty special because here I am going to list out some of the most legendary dialogues that students of GIM have heard from the well...that shows the amount of wit that is infused the teaching here at GIM...1. " Dear students...if you want to sleep in class....please do...I have no objection to that...just do not SNORE.....or else Tumhare baju wala uth jayega!! "2. "Sales is a lot like courtship...u don't push at all...she (customer) will not even know who you are and you dont stand a chance...push to hard and she might dial 100 or get in public to beat you up...so u should push absolutely optimum !!!!"3. "A salesman should know who hs customer is sleeping with" !!!there are many more....but I will leave you with a quote (to shut up someone wo is bullshitting) that will exist in the minds of GIMites for as long as they exist....and till the school exists... "CUT THE FOREPLAY AND COME TO THE POINT!!!!


Few dialogues which snape will remember till he is alive :

"I dont give a damn", " I give a damn", " Bus 90 secs mam", " I deal wid nomorss" and the best ""Dont fight wid a pig, u will get dirty and she( i mean she) will njoy it"

Finally released from the company today. And have starting thinking about how my life would shape at GIM. Have waited quite a long time now since my final offer letter in APRIL. And the wait gets much tougher when i hear that other B schools have started:-( . But i guess we would get the fruits of our patience. And a lot of surprises are waiting for us this time. A new campus.Na jane kaisa dikhta hoga voh. Heard a lot of new good faculty has also joined. Also the selection process this year was very different from last year(THOSE PROFILE BASED CALLS) so expecting a huge diversity in the batch. Thinking how good the girls would be in my class. In INFY PUNE the crowd was good in terms of girls. Thinking about whether i would be able to perform well over there in SUCH A COMPETITIVE BATCH. just so many things going through my mind. But also thinking about ME SITTING ON THE BEACH WITH A BEER IN MY HAND WITH A WHOLE BUNCH OF FRIENDS.. but for now.. waiting waiting waiting...
