@mayank030 by placing IIN so low in the list you just missed a karma point... it should be placed way ahead of IIMs... factors being roi, huge alumni base and multi-specialisation(like economics + bio) . although you may never get to know whats the use of studing such things altogether...;-)

I think it is to be held in the mid of May... as @Joey1  too told us this several times on this thread... and going by the information given on their website counselling for the session 2013-15 was held in the mid of May and last year too it was held around mid of May... so it seems to be their usual schedule...

CAT 14: 99.93 || Rejects: B (no call) , A, C. Pretty much sums up the year for me. 
Saurabh Raina @Dante_ftw1 1,542

FMS : Marketing

IIM L : Rest of the MBA specializations, GM/Consulting much better than FMS

FMS : Cost of MBA (including stay at PG) : 4-6 lakh

IIM L : Cost of MBA 10~lakh

FMS : Best ROI, location advantage, good initial placements, small batch size (You will realize it soon how important this can be).

IIM L : Decent ROI, IIM brand name helps in future, good initial placements, better campus life (hostel life), much better infrastructure.

So you decide.

the sum of the digits of a four digit number, consisting of non-zero digits, is a perfect square. The number formed by the first two digits and the number formed by the last two digits are perfect squares. If the number itself is a perfect square, then the difference between the second and the third digits of the number is?

Coriander Son @MakeINdharavi 81

calculating squares is quite easy with this trick......For any two digit number (say AB) between 25 and 75, the square will be CDEF where EF are the last two digits of (50-AB)^2 and CD is equal to AB-25 {or AB-25+the hundredth place digit of (50-AB)^2 if any}..........For any two digit number (say AB) between 75 and 100, the square will be CDEF where EF are the last digits of (100-AB)^2  and CD is equal to 2*AB-100 {or 2*AB-100+the hundredth place digit of (100-AB)^2 if any}

Sumi Jain @smilewithsumi 149

i simply made pairs of 2 digit square numbers that add up to give a square. was left with 4 options(1636,1681,2536,2581) in around 40 sec. had to do some multiplications to eliminate the other 3( almost 30-40 secs more). Thats why i asked for a shortcut

1) The management is very poor in handling the course and the students . They don't have any resources to run a b- school.

2)They hardly provide 25 hours on each subject , means they keep constant pressure on teacher to complete the course within this time.They even ask teachers to delete the topic if it requires more time.

3) In prospectus they write something else but in class they do something else.Everything is fake in BSE institute.At the time of admission tall promises are made but believe me everything is fake.

4)As far as the placement are concern the avg package is 2.5lac and that to in sales profile  means you have to sell insurance product etc . and that to is not sure that will they be able to provide you with that or not  because they were are not able to provide students for internship so what can you expect for the placement.Not a single student was place by the institute, all the students have got placement by their personal references.

5)The value of BSE institute is very poor in the market and the companies which come for placement ask for NSE certifications in the interview for placement.

6)And by the way all the student have got selected who have fill the application form , in my class many student have not even utter a single word in group discussion but then also they got selected.

7) Even i was very excited to take admission because of the brand value of BSE but seriously now I regret a lot.

8) Earlier the institute was having a tie-up with IGNOU but due to bad quality of teaching they took back their affiliation ,after that they  became autonomous. Now they have come  with new scheme of the Chitkara university to fool the students. 

9) I will suggest you do a 1yr full time program from NSE or go for a normal MBA or PGDM in finance. The best would be CFA.

10) for any details mail me

Plz talk to the students first before taking the admission because BSE institute ltd don't refund the fee at any cost.

Is this joke or what?..Who is LBSIM to decide which are prominent ones and which are not?..In other way you are yourself saying that LBSIM has called non prominent recruiters..and placed 30-50 students in non prominent companies which you cant even mention in placement why did you even call them? have mentioned number of companies,which didnt even pick up a single candidate like why this biasedness?..

and stop telling me which language to use and what not to use?..If you guys can hide facts,then i can use any language i want..and you are not the institute,you are just sort of a employee working for shed this arrogant behavior and be must have taken a marketing course ..always remember "Customer is the  king and he is always right"..If Toyota can call back 10 lakhs cars from USA market over minor defects and aplogise for it..then WTF you think you are??

@lakshay khatri bro m an aspirant just as u and i must tell u that no college gives the full list of recruiters coming to th campus u may check the reports of tapmi and fore.There is no need to state that lbsim is hiding something infact they have listed the most number of companies which visited the campus.So just relax and have faith on the institute u r about to join

Dont quit the job.. CAT is a big gamble.. you might even end up scoring lesser than what you did this time!!!! Joining NGO won't do you much good as far as handling the topic of quitting the job is concerned during the interviews IMO.

My life; My story

Read it or don't read it. I don't care.

Love it or hate it. I don't care.

There are two kinds of people, leaving aside the reservation quota, who make it to IIMs every year. The intelligent ones and the ones who acquire enough knowledge over the years to appear to look like the intelligent ones. And it took three years for me realise that I'm neither.

As with most of the others I fell in love with CAT as soon as I came to know about it in 2012.  I had just joined TCS and I was care free and enjoying my life. One day, sometime in September 2012, I had a chat with one of my colleges who briefed me about CAT. The seemingly simple idea that "how hard can an exam be that tests basic English and Mathematics at 10th standard level" grew within me that very day. The very next day I applied for CAT using an Axis Bank voucher having just a month's time to prepare. I knew I won't be getting the percentile that I aspire within a month's time. I set my goals on CAT 2013. CAT 2012 was just a trial run.

The clich├ęd background story (Science student- Engineer- IT employee)

I was always good at mathematics. It was always less preparation and more marks throughout the school days and I went on to get a 100% in 10th standard CBSE board exam 2006 with an 81% overall. This gave me enough confidence to take a shot at the revered IIT-JEE. One year down the line I realised I was no IIT material but AIEEE and NITs were within the sight. I slogged for one year and got a sub 10,000 all India rank in AIEEE and 88% in 12th CBSE board exam. But fate has its own way of saying f**k you.

My grandma passed away with just two days to my Mathematics board exam. I was completely devastated and I was in no mood to take the exam. And results showed up as expected. I got a meagre 80% in Mathematics. So getting into Anna University was completely out of the equation. Meanwhile my parents were at the verge of getting a divorce. And just a week before my NIT counselling their fight took an ugly turn and I had no parent to accompany me to my counselling. I finally joined a private engineering college in Chennai which was supposed to be a backup after abandoning my seat at NIT-Trichy.  

BTW I forgot to mention that I too had a love story.  I'm blessed to say that my first crush was my first girlfriend. We had a great time together throughout the 12th standard. With all the combined studies we did together for IIT-JEE, AIEEE and board exams we ended up getting the same percentage. It was one awesome year with her .  Once again fate intervened, her dad got transferred to Pune and she joined a college there. I was powerless to do anything to stop it. We had a huge fight before she left and I haven't talked to her ever since until she got married an year ago (2014). Well, we both have moved on and the past is behind us.

My college life was great. I made new friends for life and had an awesome time. Apart from travelling 80kms every day I maintained a CGPA above 8.5. Mu-Sigma came for placement and I screwed up in the interview after clearing the test and GD. Finally I got placed in TCS and I had no regrets until I heard about CAT. 

Will be continued in the next post.
