CAT 2015 will be my second attempt . Cat 2014 percentile-94.44

Non-engineer

Aimcat 1621 was my 1st test of the season and i scored 143

I am worried about the congruence of AIMCATs to that of the real CAT2015. They have made it extremely easy (similar to cat-14) which has quite a less probability of being replicated in  CAT 2015 (Will be set by IIM-A).

A - Mathematics has become, then, in certain of its embodiments, the life-space of an intelligence so spiritualized as to be totally incorporeal, the niche and cradle of its existence, its element.

B - The personoids arise germinally by virtue of the program; they increase at a rate imposed by the experimenter - a rate only such as the latest technology of information processing, operating at near light speeds, permits.

C - It is only through reasoning that we are in touch with mathematics , only through abstract thought that we experience it whereas the personoids live in it; it is their air, their earth, clouds, water and even bread - yes, even food, because in a certain sense they take nourishment from it.

D- The mathematics that is to be existential residence of the personoids does not await them in full readiness but still in wraps , so to speak - unarticulated, suspended, latent - because it represents only a set of certain pathways contained in appropriately programmed sub-units of the mathematical substance, the protoplasm of a universum, fed into the machine

E - So they are imprisoned, hermetically locked inside the machine, solely from our point of view; just as they cannot work their way out to us, to the human world, so conversely and symmetrically, a man can in no way enter the interior of their world, so to exist in it and know it directly.

F - To declare that the personoids are handicapped with respect to us, in as much as they do not see or hear as we do, is totally absurd, because with equal justice one could assert that it is we who are deprived with respect to them - unable to feel with immediacy the phenomenalism of mathematics which we know only in a cerebral inferential fashion.

@Honey27... My last waitlist number was 59 out of 104. I received a mail saying that I have been selected for the dcp program. My first preference was IMT G (fin). The link for checking waitlist is also not working anymore. So is this the final offer? If I do not give the 50k before the mentioned date will my candidature be cancelled or will I still have a change to convert the waitlist??

My journey My way!

Have been waiting for this moment since July 2013 (the day I joined pagalguy) and finally I get to have it, like live it, feel it, smile and cry with it. Being a general, non-technical female (I know comes to people's mind that girl's quota and commerce background will add points to my score and get me in) I did have my share of ups and downs which I guess made me learn a lot more which I would have missed if was in some college this time! So the journey begins!

Ischooling :  So I have been thinking of doing MBA since 2007. Belonging to a middle class family and having cousins who were part of all these big B-schools, it inspired me and made me work harder to score those 90+% in boards and a 100% in maths in class 10th (that was the only time i worked my ass off) and was pretty sure that I am smart enough to crack the feline and be part of IIM A (dream school). Times passed and class 12th was kind enough to me and i scored 90+ even though i had my right elbow fractured and was not studying for straight 2 months. So, yes school went on fine with parents being happy, having expectations and with other problems.

DU :

Was lucky to be a part of north campus, DU and studied B.Com(H) from Ramjas College and did all the fun which you expect from a DUite to do. Made friends, attended fests, interned, had a break up and life took a different turn. Once a girl was so excited about preparing for MBA , left her plans to pursue it for the time being and wrote CAT just for fun like literally. Wrote CAT in 2011 with 0 prep, didn't even knew about the pattern properly etc and still hoped that yeah i am smart enough, I'll score 80 something. The day result came, it was below 50. I was devastated, though it was normal because I wasn't prepared but those expectations I had from myself were shattered. So a failed relationship, losing my grandpa the same day CAT results came out,  pathetic CAT score, failed placements and an irritating professor as mentor for the project, my 3rd year was pretty screwed up!! I had zero self-confidence and thought of myself being a waste and a burden on my parents. They didn't knew about it much but yea knew I was depressed, but i guess life had its own plan and left Delhi to explore Bangalore

(my first love). Spent 2 weeks there, came back.

 

Job : Managed to secure a job with a startup in Gurgaon ( a place where my ex belonged to and I loathed) and started working. Initially it was tough , literally, but then yes you eventually adjusts with things around. Worked harder, was in the top of the lists and was involved with other stuff there itself so had myself pretty occupied. Around birthday (January) I relaised "yaar aur nai hoga yeh, have to get back to the original self" and I told my parents about the discussion of pursuing MBA again making them satisfied "ki haan ab kuch hoga iska" Asked my cousins about the same and planned that I'll take the night shift and study in the day time but on my own, no coaching. Mind mai apni value abhi b kum nai hui thi (still thought of myself a smarty) and will crack it on my own. Registered with TIME for the test series and had a friend from XIMB to pan out my stuff and help me with it. Boy!! Those aimcats gave me nightmares, scoring as low as single digit percentiles. Still something in me kept me moving on and in August I resigned thinking I'll be full time devoted to it as was not able t manage job and study together. Manager felt bad but had to do this and packed my stuff and came back home. So living in Delhi/NCR for 4 + years and coming back to Yamunanagar (small town) gave me jitters. All hanging out, weekend parties etc all came to a stop. Kept my cool and promised myself with lucrative offers if I end up good.

Struggle time : actual period : So kept on preparing and hoping for a miracle I wrote CAT and all other MBA entrances , had in my mind that I'll atleast get through something. In this whole process, made amazing friends here on pagalguy. A long list of people and wont name because missing even a single on would be unfair. "Rise to Smile" was  my adda where was called tamatar and was called sallu too. Spent around 10 hours here because it was my family. So when the results started pouring in, it was a time where I thought it's time to end my life.

CAT : 50 %ile

SNAP : 86 %ile

XAT : 75.75%

And all other were straight rejects.

Managed to secure calls from TAPMI, IFMR, IMT Nagpur but the worst they didn't get converted too. Only IMT Nagpur did. My all friends had converts and were happy and gay with their new friends. It was a time I want no one should ever go through. A failure which makes you think yourself as a big loser, a failure, a burden, good for nothing girl. When you are so low, everything about you turns to be negative, you start thinking about how ugly you are, nobody loves you, people are moving away, they are happy and you are just sulking, you cry and cry yourself to sleep. Watching your parents try to pacify you but deep down you know how much they want you to be successful, taunts etc just was too much. Because of all this, I stopped eating and ignored my health and fell sick. Jaundice and acute intestinal infection took over me and 3 months on bed direct (April-May-June).This period was horrible, used to cry at nights because of pain and I guess the failure because I was scared about my future and cry till the point my mum used to make me sleep around 3 AM. This continued for 3 months, injections of pain killers, mum dad taking leaves for handling me etc, the only best part I wasn't admitted. During this time, I met a person on PG and he helped me to find a way out for all this. He asked me to introspect as it wasn't taking my time much and note down that what wrong I did. I agreed after a bit nagging and started the introspection and realized:

1.       I ignored the basic pattern and got emotionally attached to questions.

2.       I spent most of the time here on PG bakaring.

3.       I wasn't serious or organised with my course.

4.       I thought of myself as a person who'll clear CAT without prep.

5.       Was too involved in worldly affairs and vulnerable.

With all this I thought of working but was refused because of stamina/health issues and thought of writing CAT the last time in 2014. I was 23 by then, unemployed, good for nothing lass but still my parents agreed to it (not the marriage issue but they wanted me to settle professionally)

I gave up chocolates, I can die for them but yes did. Just to bring myself in discipline and joined CL in july for classes. Went for my classes, studied hard, did my questions, was off PG as in bakar and was a part of the FB group but realised that cannot study this way and went for chats and all just to ease my mind out. Joined swimming to keep myself involved as was still at home and made every effort to burn the midnight oil and with the support of my bestie and people around wrote CAT and all other entrances.

The first one was CMAT sept, result came around midnight and I managed a 95%ile, I know not a great one but a person who has seen 40-50, it was heaven. Called up Ankita (besite) and cried my heart out. I know I wouldn't get calls but then it was 90+. Was a bit confident and with an added effort wrote CAT. So i am this person who gets nervous before exams and happened this time too. After CAT, the next day i had IIFT and realised in the middle of the exam, IIFT is not my cup of tea The same night I went to katwaria sarai, in front of the IIFT gate, vented out (kiddish I know). SNAP happened then and results came. CAT it was, i scored 89.68%ile, yes not even a 90 -_- It scared the shit out of me again and was so depressed that I made my parents let down again and couldn't even manage 90+ with coaching and stuff. As the battle was still left, prepared for XAT. Was unwell that morning but managed to appear for it :/ The day I had TISS ,SNAP's result was declared. As I was going for the exam, the result was out. I was firm that I'll check once i am back at my massi's place. I went back, opened my mail hoping positivity as I wasn't bad last year. As I opened the score card, it was 97.85%ile and I shouted like anything. My cousin from the other room came running and was shocked to see me in tears (i cry a lot ) He got so so so scared that he called up bhabhi to look into the matter. I checked, rechecked, re re checked if it was me only. That moment I was not in my senses, I was crying and laughing at the same time Called up Ankita and did the same on phone, she was so confused that I got some good abuses from her The amount of confidence it gave me had no boundaries. Went out the next day and ate my heart out and shopped ^_^ Called my parents but they were normal with it! J

Then all the results came and TISS, IIFT was a straight reject. So as I had SNAP, i was hell bent to convert Symbiosis as Pune it was, a place I so wanted to be a part of. I knew I would clear SCMHRD cut off but was sceptical about SIBM-P, again tension times :/ but somehow I did :D.

So this season I had/have calls from SIBMP, SCMHRD, SIIB, SIBMB, XIMB HR, IMI, TAPMI, KJ FORE, that is it.

The pune phase was altogether an amazing journey and rickety one but yes made me so so so strong.

Converted SCMHRD and am waitlisted for SIBMP which I have no hopes for to clear. So will be joining SCMHRD for now and will have my badge too :mg:

I made so many friends in this whole journey who are so close to my heart and have stood by me and seeing them saying "we are so happy for you, you deserved it" made me cry. Some of them left me but yes I cannot control that. The whole journey made me kill myself, made me proud. My parents cried with me the day I was part of the SCMHRD merit list. Sooner or later I realised, I can do it, I just need to be a lil more disciplined and strict with myself. Things will eventually fall in place, people say or "tension na le, sab sahi hoga" but yea we are humans, but obvious hota tension! J

Something in us keeps us moving, we just have to find that something and we'll succeed for sure!

PS - I know it is a long one but wanted to share with my PG family.

PPS - Ignore the grammatical errors as direct from the heart and no proof reading has been done.

PPPS - I did it (somehow) so anyone can do it! J

PPPPS - any sort of feedback is welcomed!

All the best peeps!! You'll surely shine!

puys: Like somebody else has also posted in one of the threads below, I would like to highlight 2 things here:

1) I don't see a point getting into nitty gritties of placement stats, It is highly subjective. Indian Economy is one of the most dynamic economies currently and you can't predict what is in store 1 year down the line. Personally speaking, I would have done a 3 year part time course if Indian economy was not that dynamic because in that case I could have entered with a personal roadmap and could have executed it well. However in such a dynamic economy you can't preempt things. Who knows another gamechanger like Flipkart comes in and creates enormous jobs. So it is quite subjective to the T.

2) I have a personal request: I would suggest if all of us can come to a whatsapp group which I am creating with the name MDI NMP 2015 today it would be great. I am adding a few (numbers which I have). If rest can share there numbers I can keep on adding them. We can also plan to meet at a common forum through that. Hope this sounds logical.
