i think it's too late for u people to read this becoz when i'm writing my experiences, the last batch interview is goin on......
But these experiences will surely be beneficial for people attending GD/PI in 2010 and onwards....
That's the PagalGuy spirit, U are benefitted from people's experiences and then U benifit others from ur experiences....
Well, PG gives rank 36 to DoMS IITR but i think it's not optimum.....
DoMS deserves better than that.....
The atmosphere was really cooool....
Seniors were very helpful, intelligent and communicative....
Needless to say about IITR Infrastructure......
I don't know whether my performance was worth jumping the hurdle, but I know one thing, I gained a vital experience which I will carry with me in future...
Currently pursuing B.Tech.(Comp.)- 65%
there were 4 people, one lady prof(lp) and 3 male professors(m1,m2,m3)...
lp was asking technical questions and m3 was there to observe me, he was not asking questions...
As It was first MBA interview of my life, i was very nervous....
(A pen was lying on the chair, so I told them about it and they took that pen from me, it was a trick to check my prescence of mind)
lp: why not M.Tech.?have you appeared for GATE?
me:sad:nervous):a..a...a....a... ma'm.....a...(gave the answer in a haste, she was not satisfied)
m2:So u are from YMCA Institute of Engg.?Tell me something about YMCA(association)..
m2:wat is the difference b/w YMCA and YWCA?
lp:wat is GIS?
me:sad:wat's that?)sorry ma'm..
m2:do u know nything abt chandrayaan?
m2:hw many countries have sent satellites on the moon till now?
m2:any idea abt international event happening nowadays?
m2:it's abt films.
me:sad:arre pata hai)oscars blah blah blah....
m2:ny indian nominations????
lp:if u r given a chance to work in computers, which field will u choose?
m1:tell me about some national and international personalities related to computers.
m1:mr. narayan murti has been honoured by some outside agency, u kno abt that?
m1:ur degree is quite low?
me:blah blah blah....(all started laughing)....
gd was quite good, we were 6 people there...
everybody spoke and I spoke twice and concluded also....
1. quality which is expensive is better than cheap trash...
2. should india sign on CTBT?
3. Lalu will be a successful PM...
we chose the 1st one...
all in all it was very good experience...
thanx a lot to all the seniors, Rathi sir, Vikas Saini sir and all others(I don't know the names of others)....

Hello MODS. I did a mistake in making the thread. Kindly transfer it to the other exam discussion page.
hello puys......... 2nd interview experience of the season.
10th : 85.80
12th : 82.40
B.E. CSE : 71.37 till date (fresher)
JMET rank: 1106
Before coming to the gd pi experience, i came to roorkee on 19th night, and must say was bewildered by the IIT ROORKEE campus. I went to the DOMS and seniors were there to help and provide us with accomodation. Must say the accomodation is very gud in the hostels with all the necessary things provided. I walked around the campus and enjoyed the campus life, right now i m posting this from the IIT Roorkee hostel itself. Coming to the gd pi exp. I had 1:30 slot on the 20th.
I was the first on the panel, and documents were verified only JMET Rank Card and for ppl with work ex, work ex verification.
I was through with the verification and the seniors gave us a presentation on the DOMS. There was also questionnaire and seniors answered all the queries.
After that to my amazement I was asked to come straight fot the PI without having my GD. I was in the panel 1 with the HOD sir, 2 lady prof's(lf1, lf2) and one prof(p1).
I asked for the permission and in a chorus plz come in. I took my seat and said thank you.
now the process starts.
HOD: tell me about yourself.
Me: blah blah blah, kept on saying it and to my surprise they din't interrupt and i kept on speaking. After that HOD Sir said, should he ask me to stop or I will stop myself. Nywys I stopped.. I had concluded with my career goals. I want to set up an engg colz in Bihar.
HOD: So whose affiation u will req to set up the colz.
HOD: What is diff b/w degree diploma and certification.
HOD: whose degree u will award in ur colz
HOD: He said he wants to set up MBA Colz. What is diff b/w MBA and PGDM.
Me: Told a little whatever i knew but din't knew the strucure diff.
LF1: Problems of Bihar
Me: Told some more discussion about Bihar.
LF2: She was all the time nodding and putting smiles making me confident.
P1: how do u see mayawati future PM in the next election.
No acads no current awareness, just career goals.
They asked me to leave and when i just about to leave LF1 said ankit 1 last advice. U performed well and made good points but spoke too much. I never thought one can be punished for speaking in a B school interview, as i answered all the questions.
After the interview I went to the GD. Seniors advised not to create a fish market as the profs were upset with the morning gd's.
6 ppl 1 din't turn up. We were given 2 topics asked to choose 1.
topic 1: dont' even remember
topic 2; regional politics bane or boon for india
1 min to think and 7 min for discussion.papers were provided. A girl started , i pitched in next and came in the gd 4-5 times. Some of the guys were very apprehensive about the fish market and they hardly spoke.4 of the ppl spoke well and made gud points. GD was okay no write up and were also asked to fill a feedback form.
My rating: GD 8/10
PI No idea after that u spoke too much thing.
I have my frnds interview slated tommo so still staying in the IIT Roorkee hostel and enjoying campus life.
Do post ur GD PI experiences.
Kindly Post it along with the following:
Work Ex if any
