So I had my Lucknow interview today. If i have to describe how i feel after that in one word, I will say DISGUSTED. Never in my life i have been made to feel that i am a reserved candidate, but today was the glorious date. I wouldn't follow the debrief format. I will ramble. 

So, WAT i wrote a decent, GD was pretty good. Asked others in my group how i did, they all were pretty impressed and said I moderated the GD and gave good points. I was excited for the interview. 

I was called in by the panel. I respectfully wished good afternoon and sat down. 

Low grades in college, so they asked why. I had an answer prepared which i was saying, then i was interrupted in between. Now begins the part, which has made me furious. 

One of them goes, tell me one thing why do reserved candidates score so less in college. They take seats of other more deserving candidates and then just dont study. To which i politely said, sir i had my reason which i was trying to tell you, i wouldn't know about others. 

Then he asked me my family background. I told. Then he said. Oh you have a nice background, you dont even look like a reserved candidate, why do you want to get through in quota. There are more deserved candidate than you are.  (mothefck, you want me to come in torn clothes and chappal for a fckin interview because I am reserved? )

Then he again said about academics. I replied i am one of the best placed people in my class. He said, yeah yeah you would have gotten through reservation in job or through contacts. I told him fair and square i work for a big firm and i got thru cos of my hard word and caliber.

Then we started talking about work ex, and never let me complete and kept interfering. Then kept on talking about work ex for the entire time and never let me complete. 

All in all, i'll say, insult me about my work ex, grad, less marks, lack of general knowledge, I am fine with it. 

But if you will point out my caste and comment about it and show me down, that i have never worked hard in life, it is not acceptable. Another reason could be, i spoke the best in my group. I think they might be intimidated, as to how an SC candidate spoke this well. 

Uttar Pradesh, there is a reason why you have an ill image, there is a reason why in that state there is so much discrimination, there is a reason why B R Ambedkar did what he did. It is because people like you who cant see someone else being better than you only cos you belong to a higher caste. (No offence to anyone from UP, this is not a generalization)

Also, I have noticed a trend atleast by answers here on pagalguy, SC candidates are given a really tough time. I dont think it is just a coincidence. 

I would love to know your opinion and discuss this.

And one more thing. I kind of stalked your profile (sheepish grin). Now its a mystery. Did you take up L or did you apply for ISB or did you get through ABC next year or did you go to the US or you are still working at TI. Too curious! :D

@nuke_deal  If u have checked my profile, u must have seen that I am very inactive nowadays. Just was surfing through how ABCL interviews are going, came across ur heated post, saw ppl talking about lodging complaints to the Commission, invoking Articles for punishment & such extreme steps which have the potential to turn real ugly (mostly for the aspirant coz he will be marked as the one who cried 'wolf' over a routine technique), thus thought that I will try to make them see reason.


The outburst was only after getting out of there, which kind of looks stupid to me right now, but it was just nerves. Again, AFTER the interview --> Yup, I guessed that. What i meant was that, u were pretty irritated/frustrated/agitated internally at what was happening in that room. In ur own words, u were like waiting to come out of that room & explode. That eagerness to give outlet to ur emotions shows in ur body language (which is why I talked about B.L & facial twitches). These ppl are just brilliant & have the incredible capacity to understand emotions better than even most local psychiatrists. They pick up on these.

Regarding the 'apology & indication of convert' part, I should have elaborated (My reply was already too long, so I skimped). It is not always a 'Sorry' per se (They are too qualified & too proud of it to actually apologize) but usually a positive message at the very end (like 'U are a bright young man & we are sure that u will do good in life' which that short guy I was talking about heard in his HUL interview or a few consecutive 'good's or a cheeky smile to a co-panelist at the end, after a great reply from ur part etc etc - these are some indicators that I have seen/heard of, in case of stress interviews, which are generally a good sign for a PROMISING student. There are ofcourse those with poor profiles who still turn up for interviews brazenly. In their case, the grilling is genuine dislike ). Maybe they straightaway apologized to her coz she is a Female & they felt bad about treating her with such disdain throughout the 35min. But that ur interview was unidirectional, with constant criticism & no redeeming part in that PI, seemed like a bad omen. Hope u don't mind me being honest (if ur CAT score is good, u will convert even if couldn't answer the most basic questions on ur mother subject).

I joined C the next year. Life here is so hectic & awesome that I am usually not online. I am awake at 5.30, so u understand what I am talking about....

My actual score is 129 in slot 1 and equated score and percentile are 111.27 and 84.567 respectively.

if compared to other slots then 

Slot 2 - 

Actual marks - 129

Equated score - 141.758

Percentile - 97.867

Slot 3 - 

Actual marks - 129

Equated score - 136.98

Percentile - 136.98

Slot 4 - 

Actual marks - 128

Equated score - 144.59

Percentile - 98.39.

Now how is this fair. I admit that slot 1 was very easy but why did they reduce our marks and increased in all other slots.

If they wanted to equate it then why didn't they reduce slot 1 equated marks only and kept the other slots equated marks same.

I guess they are not releasing the second list so that they can ensure that the Gurgaon campus gets filled up first (since no one really wants to go there)....
