Hi all. I hope posting my query on this thread helps as I am a bit perplexed right now. And there doesn't seem to be a lot of info/help available on the web about it for, err, obvious reasons.
On being suggested to do so, I had applied to an IIM-A prof. (Marketing Dept.) last to last night. To my surprise, he replied yesterday morning itself saying that we'll set up a preliminary talk on phone. The date has been fixed as 10 Jan.
I am quite pleasantly surprised though, as I wasn't expecting any outcome. I am basically a 3rd year Engineering studentobviously with next to nothing knowledge about managerial studies (but obviously a lot of interest in the same.) Interning under a faculty's guidance, that too IIM-A, good enough, I hope?
Now I am slightly nervous. What will be asked on phone? What preparations do I make now for the same to ensure that it proves to be worthwhile? Will the phone call be the last step or there will be more of them to follow up? Does anybody have an idea about what an undergrad, that too a Software Engineering student, can be made to do during the internship period. I am very keen on availing this opportunity to learn in a *dream institution* (who knows if I can make it in there for MBA or not )
I tried going through his papers but the terminology...
WHAT are MDP courses, cases et al?
Do I sound like a noob? Yes I am. #noobexpert

ANY help on this would be appreciated.

Thanks a ton in advance.:)

Hi guys,

Now i know y they say its hard to find time in first year at IIM A. Slot-1 is over , with so hectic schedule of everything say it studies or extracurriculars.
I am getting used to the way to classify my needs and then execute them if i get time. Thats another thing that i have not got time for last 20 days to fullfil my basic desires. :P
So prepare yourself to study harder after CAt . Coz u just cant ignore things which are so important and going to make u perfectionist in future.
Also T-nights are over with lot of fun . our section( A) stood Second but we enjoyed more than anything.

@pussy; u are just showing ur unsatisfied character through ur posts . Anyhow i would be happy if u concentrate more on how to enter the institute and then make comments rather than doing mudslinging from outside.


C U soon

or may be here:-

I'm tired of this argument. That post is not nonsense.

That post compares iima with the best of the world and particularly the PGP programme. It defnitely means something. Go Figure.

Hey dj1, if u claim that post to be useless, why get wary of it.

C'mon, this is not a military intelligence website where links shouldn't be shown and most of information is classified.



Hey, I find this statement pretty contradictory. You claim that you know the writer and he is from iima, and then claim the sources are not credible enough. This is absurd.



Please, iima is good and it rocks, but the insight is that it is like bringing a knife to a machine gun fight when compared to the global giants.



Posting again...formatting errors...thanks..


I agree this is not military intelligence website. But this forum has some rules coz everybdy around i not "JOBLESS' and they need to access information correctly and succinctly.


I know that person and that is the reason I say its not credible enough. I don't find it absurd. You know someone is not knowledgable enough to comment on a thing, so you are confident. I hope you get it.

This is your opinion, which is based on a baseless blog. But you can believe on it, nobody really cares.

Cheers,
dj1

. I agree with your opinion, and also with the writer to an extent. I know the writer very well, he is from dorm.

This forum is to share first hand experiences and not quote sources who are not credible enough to believe. A blog is an expression and no one can trust an individual expression.

And if you ask for my opinion. I not a blog and I am first hand experience-r. This place rocks and is incomparable to anything in the world (my opinion, please don't generalize). But I am sad only few people realize full potential from the place and those who don;t write such blogs in their free time.

Cheers,
dj1

I would also request the moderator to come out of their slumber and stop one more mud-slinging session by unknown sources and claimers.

Let sanity prevail.
