M here posting my "detailed" experience.

Its simply weird what i could not remember 2 days after GE PI process is all crystal clear right now after getting a convert from MICA

Anyways here goes :

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Date for GE PI 4th April 2011

Reached Ahmedabad on 3rd night. Met my friend and stayed with him during my Ahmedabad stay. He also had GE PI process on 4th April.

Next day reached IIM gate at 7:30 am.

Met Ekansh there.

The bus journey started with a call from mom.

Reached the dream campus at 8:30 am. walked in from the front gate

Started recollecting previous year's experiences with adrenaline and mohit gulyani, sanchit soni.

Got confused between MiCafe and Chhota.:drinking:

Was directed to Seminar Hall 4 for registration.

registered for the process.

After registration there was a written procedure where we had to make suggestions to a farmer who used natural methods for farming and was contributing to ecological imbalance. Wrote the essay, was not having any idea what to write so it was not exactly a very credible effort.

Then there was a short speech by director sir. Then we were divided into groups for GE process.

My name was in last group. We went to panel 4 for GE in the same block.

Topic : Devise an innovative way to select a radio jockey.

everyone wanted to speak. Think that my performance over there was below par.

GE was over by 10:30-11 am.

Went to MiCafe for masala pasta n lemon tea.

Had amazing lunch at the mess (hope it is as god whole year).

My turn for interview came around 6:00pm

I was sitting outside and number 17 was giving interview, but surprisingly there was not a bit of nervousness.

I was in panel 4. There were three gentlemen sitting.

I was greeted by a statement " So, we have a poet in our midst."

To this I replied on something about writing to ease my emotions.

Q: What do you know about MICA
A.: rattled off about how i convinced myself on why mica.

Q: What do you know about courses at mica?
A.: told about all.

Q. : Tell us about your work experience
A. Told about it with confidence

Q: What about failures in life?
A: Promptly replied

Q.: What will you do in mba, you have creative mind and course is boring.
A. replied that i m an engineer n completed 4 yrs of btech.

Note : I pointed about MiSpirants and all the micans/ex-micans i know

Cheers

B.Tech. (EEE, NIT Trichy) - 66.3, 10th - 73.4, 12th - 75, work ex - 1 yr (Oil & Gas) , 9 months (education sector)

Here goes my experience! :-)

My GE went well with 10 of us being given the task to "make an ad for the harmful effects of chewing tobacco and one ad for unsafe sex." within 30 minutes total..
There were ppl who tried to mess up, as our group has lots of enthu ppl, many dominators too. I personally tried to take the sensible path, was just trying throughout to let the team proceed to some meaningful conclusion. Eventually, after 15 mins I made my presence felt, in a way that I united the team to come to a single idea and kinda got into director type role. So eventually we successfully completed the ad!

PI experience:

2 Females and 1 male (all in later 40s):
M1 - good afternoon bhuvan
me- good afternoon! :)
F1 - so bhuvan, where are you working?
me - with a CAT coaching as a Quant faculty sir.
M1- humm.. this is your second job, why the switch?
me- I joined first job as a management trainee in marketing from college but it turned out to be operations profile and so I had to shift.
F2- if you were interested in marketing why not marketing job?
me- I applied, but in corporate you don't get a good marketing job without an MBA and so, here I am!! (shut her mouth :D)
M1- what do you think is required to make a career in this industry?
me - good observation, interest in creativity ofcourse you won't be doing the creative work directly but u'll be taking decisions like wch ad to go for, wch medium is more effective etc. which would expect you to understand things in that way and other blah blah!!
F1 - you've been in gujarat for 1 year, what do you think about modi?
me- gave both pros and cons
M1- you are earning decently, do you know that you might not get these salaries after MICA initially?
me- yes sir I know, but as you can see from my first job switch, at this stage of career i understand the value of base fr a good career rather than just money.
M1- what do you know about communications industry?
me- ofcourse I do sir, that is why i'm sitting here!
M1 - what do you know about this industry? the profiles etc?
me- told about the four verticals...
M1- do you have idea about the career path for an account planner?
me- told
M1- are you highly ambitious?
me- yes!
M1- so would you wanna become CEO etc.?
me- not exactly, I wanna open my own firm
M1- by what time?
me- by age of 40 approx, I would rather explore this thing more in MICA!
M1- humm.. okay, because MICA ppl generally don't reach CEO positions generally, CEOs are expected more of a general mgmt expeience..
me - yup!
F2- which other calls do you have?
me- MDI, results awaited
M1- how many classes do you take per day?
me - avg. 2 to 3!
M1 - isn't that too much? it would be tiring?
me- no sir, its normal, I guess m young enuf to handle that atleast!
M1- but still 6 hrs per day of lecture is a lot!
me - humm.. I don't feel it sir! ;-)
F2- you don't seem to give a balanced analysis of modi, its more positive
me- elaborated negatives again and said they are crucial!

Verdict - SPOT Offer!
