In the Interview form, it is specified that we've to bring attested copies of all the certificates during the WAT-PI process. Will self attested copies suffice? Or are we required to get them attested from a gazetted officer?
Please could you let me know if the university doesnt have a clear guideline about CGPA to percentage conversion, what should be the method adopted for the same?
Also, is it required at this point of time to get the conversion certificate or a statement saying that there aint one?
Is there anyone who is shortlisted for gd pi but haven't recieved a mail yet??
Is bimtech better than fore and welingkar?? Confused. A lot.
kindly through some light which should be the priority for all these colleges:
-IIM Raipur, IIM Rohtak, IIM Trichy, U, S, and all new IIMS,
- IIT Delhi
- IIT Bombay
- IIT Kgp
your point of view will be really helpful, and is really appriciated:)

IIM Lucknow Interview Experience -
12th Feb, 2016
Mumbai , 1:30 pm slot
WAT : The Road less travelled makes a difference
Wrote a decent essay covering innovation, politics, history where being a maverick helps.
Had heard from previous guys in panel that they were having Stress Interviews in my panel.
Prof had seen the interviewee before me sharing her interview experience while calling me in.
Q- Is the KT(knowledge transfer) over from the previous interviewees?
A- (laughing) Yes
Q- Do you want to go out and ask her in case you feel you missed out anything?
Q- What have the previous interviewees said?
A- Told about how they have been asking about graduation and the previous one was asked Maths and Hobbies . It depends on each candidate
Q- So which all calls do you have?
Q- No B?
Q- (Takes my Personal Data form and looks at it) Ok you can leave
A- (astonished) Excuse me?
Q- What is there to ask. (showing the other prof my form) He is a CFA L3 and works at Credit Suisse . Too good for L. Idhar 15 lakhs lagage ke bhi itna hi milega
A- Told that MBA is needed for me as I wish to work in the Strategy/Private Equity space.
Q- Why is MBA for needed that? You already know more about Finance than we will teach
A- Finance is just one part of business. In these areas one needs to understand a business holistically and that knowledge a MBA will provide
Q- Tell us how exactly MBA will help in career progression? Leave all this knowledge etc part out
A- Many roles which I am interested in require MBA. For example after CFA L3 I was looking to shift into Equity Research which values CFA highly but I did not get shortlisted as the feedback was that CFA just provides financial toolbox while we need to evaluate business which is why they prefer only MBAs. (side waala prof says Good )
Q-Ok you can leave then
A-(cursing inwardly) Please do ask me some more questions
Q- No you are CFA L3 you should ask us questions
A-Nothing like that
Q- Ok tell us about your IIMA Interview experience
A- (kya mazaak hain) Told
Q- So they asked you technical questions there
Q- You told you need MBA to get sectoral exposure so tell us about the Teaching Sector in India
A- Dont know about the sector as a whole but can make an attempt .
Q- (cutting in middle) No speak about IITs and IIMs. Do you think IIM Lucknow is a good institute?
A- Yes as per friends who have been alumni and current students it is a very good institute plus any institute which places 400+ students in 3 days in roles which are desired by students certainly deserves to be called a very good institute
Q- Tell us about your hobbies
A- Told about reading history and fantasy.
Q- Recent book you read on History?
A- India after Gandhi
Q- How did you find it?
A- Very comprehensive
Q- You told me you read Lord of the Rings? So was not including the character of Tom Bombadil in the movies a wise decision?
A- Spoke how it was right as his character is not very central to the plot and how it tied more into the history of Arda and his role as Iarwain or the first one.
Q-It seems you have read Silmarillion as most of that info is not present in LOTR but in it
Q- (Panelists being served Tea) See you know even that. No point is asking you questions. You can leave
A- No do ask me if you have anything
Q- No both of us are done with questions. Please leave now and let us have our Tea in peace
A- Okay. Thank you
Overall one of the weirdest interviews I will face. Trying to have a stress interview by telling I am too good for them :P. Somehow stretched the interview to 15 minutes. Feel that I handled myself well enough to get a convert. Rest anyways will be known in April.
