[2011-12 GDPI Helpline] By NITIE Students - the Last lap to enter Dream B-Schools Prep Resources

Dear All,

For the second year in succession, we bring to you the PaGaLGuY Official GDPI Helpline in collaboration with students of NITIE Mumbai. Helpline has the sole objective to ensure that you are empowered to crack GDPI in a better way.

The hard part is done but the harder part is yet to be taken care of. The 'Battle' is over but the 'WAR' to enter dream B-Schools is still on. And this is the right time to ask all your 'last lap' questions to people who have been there, done that and wish to share their experience and time with you.

Continuing with the tradition set by helpline of last year, you can ask them about:

- How to start preparing for GDPI
- Customizing GDPI preparation for different B-Schools
- Dealing with fear to speak in group / before interview panel
- How to be prepared about out of the box questions in interviews
- Tips for group tasks/ case discussions
- Customized PI tips as per your background

If you have any questions related to above apprehensions or any other query, post them here and get them answered by NITIE Students.

Special features of this helpline include:

- Regular discussions on topics important with respect to GDPI. This won't include the posting of news or articles on these topics, rather it will consist of complete analysis of the topic from management point of view posted regularly by NITIE Students after the discussion among puys on the topic has exhausted.
- Suggestions to perform better in PIs.
- Sharing GDPI experience of almost every elite B-School.
- Skype Conference with NITIE students and live discussions on topics.

Please fill the following form if you wish to participate in Skype GDPI Sessions:

No it should not be done
The decision to bailout a private airline should not be based upon the class of service it provides to its customers.No doubt kingfisher has world class service but that is not a reason for its financial mismanagement.
Secondly I think the better use of the money of...

Besides, there would be so many direct & indirect job losses if Kingfisher isn't bailed out.

yes it should certainly be done. Helping Kingfisher would mean no loss of flights and other services done by it and hence no looking for other alternatives to ppl who avail these services

Kingfisher is not merely a private airline in debt. It is India's reply to the Lufthansas and Singapore Airlines of the world. It is being seen by several Indians and foreigners as probably the only Indian airline with true, world-class service. So in a sense, India's image and competency is at s...

Has the online GD started ??
hello seniors when the GD process will be started...
Going back in the timeline, I would like to share one important point that I learnt regarding GD, with all of you. Before being a part of the MBA fraternity, I always looked at this procedure as just another elimination round to select the best, and only recently have I realized that it's not.

Around 10.30 - 11 PM No timeline to end, it would depend on when the points from you all get exhausted.
Initially, discussions would be through posts on threads for first 1-2 topics and then we shall move on to skype sessions.
Since in skype session everyone cannot be accomodated at a s...
