Ur score is very low. Not impressive.
U can go now.
...my opinion ..
I could not answer first 3 academic questions. But my answers to very first 2 questions at the start of intervies were vey good.
Therefore i think even after failing to give good answers of first 3 academic questions i was asked 4-5 more acad. questions and satisfactory answers of which i could give.
Leaving these 3 acad. questions, my performance was good.
(Finally converted SJMSOM, IIT-B)

I promised myself that I will post my experience if i convert this call...So here it is..

Had my GD/PI on Sunday 7th March2010
It was a HR based case study where in u have to decide how to handle an experienced but underperforming guy..GD was noisy with everyone trying to pitch in with their points..but i felt discussion was gud and some gud examples & alternative solutions were discussed.

PI experience :

P1: Experienced IIT B prof
P2: Foriegn Faculty of Sjsom
P3: IIT B alumni/ Microsoft guy
P1:So Mr.V, where are you from..
Me:Sir, i m currently staying in Delhi, but i belong to UP.
P1: oh U.P...its a very very fast growing state... and if Behenji has her way..we will see many more UP in future..
Me: yes Sir..
P1: So why do you think she wants to do this..
Me: Sir, there is always a hidden Political agenda behind such issues..As new states mean more MP seats,more MLA
seats..
P1:But kisi aur ko chance kahan deti hai..khud he khadi ho jaati hai har jagah se..
Me: Smiling and nodding :)
P1:And do u think what she is doing is right?
Me:No Sir, I am not a supporter of Mayawati Govt...(P1 interrupts)
P1: I m also not a supporter of Narendra Modi ..But i like his work!
Me: Sir That is what I was saying..I am not a supporter of Mayawati Gov. because she is not doing what all she can
do in U.P.
P1:like what?
Me:Well.. she is spending thousands of crore Rs building her statue all around lucknow..While she can do so much
more..
P1:accha he toh kar rahi hai...itne logon ko kaam mil raha hai..Sai nai hai yeh(laughs)
Me:(Smiling )No sir.. it is not helping..(P1 interrupts)
P1:So tell me how wud u spend that money..?
Me:(Thinking)Umm.. Sir I wud spend this money on NREGA scheme..which will help (P1 interrupts)
P1:But this is a central Govt initative...you cannot spend on that..
Me: Oh..Yes sir..I agree..I will use that money to build infrastructure in UP.For example Roads...they are in such a
bad conditions..with no streetlights.The moment u enter ghaziabad while going from delhi..you can easily say that
delhi border has benn crossed by looking at the roads
P1:hmm okay..so do u have Work ex?
Me: yes sir..2 years and 6 months in X company..
P1:yeh lo ji...Over to u P3...
Then ques on work ex follows..
P3:(Smiles)So what exactly u do in X?
P3:What is the best thing u liked about Sharepoint ( i worked on MS Sharepoint for a year )
P3:What is the main business of X?
P2(german):(jumps in)..I dont understand one thing..u IT guys have such a gud workex..why u want to thow all that
away and
do MBA...
Me:Sir I am not throwing that away..I am using it as a base to build upon it..
P1:Why MBA then..?
Me: Sir i have worked only in IT till now..so my growth is limited in this vertical only..
P3:So if dont do MBA u wont get desired growth?
Me: No,Sir...With out MBA i will grow in technolgy domain only..BuT now I want to grow horizontally in other
verticals of business..
P1: u wanna grow horizontally..meaning u wanna grow fat (i m on the slimmer side 😞 )..dont worry u will get there
eventually
Me: Smiling :D
P2:But why not use ur knowledge and start smthg of ur own.?why not enterprenurship?
Me:Sir i believe that enterprenurship is all about having a great idea.. and having the clearity to implement it..
But I am curently having visibility in IT only...all the other aspect of a business like
Operations,Marketing,Finance are not familar to me..
So right now i am not thinking abt enterprenurship...but once i m done with my MBA,once i have a visiblity across
all these areas,
I may venture into it..
(All 3 nodded along)
P3:Tell me abt the tecnologial happening of IT..
Me:Sir Sharepoint2010 was launched recently..
P3:No No not that...
Me:Sir product wise..gadget wise ..??
P3:Like every era has a fad..there was something in 80's and 90's..so what is the current fad?
Me: Um..(not sure wat he wanted to listen out of me :S) Sir cloud computing..explained a bit more..
(P3 looked satisfied and nodded along)
P1:what other calls that u have..Which one will u join ?
Me: told.. then told Sjmsom
P1:u r saying this 'cause we 3 are from sjmsom..
Me: No sir I m sayingt his 'cause Sjmssom suits my requirements..i want to major in IT ..and here IT infrastructure,
Industry interaction are great..
P1:So why not IIT K ..does it not have a MBA course..?
Me: Sir it has..but its a department ..Bombay and Kgp has SOM rest are department of Managemnt studies..
P1:(In a wierd Mocking tone ) ohho.. is it?..They are all DMS...??
Me:(smiling) yes Sir..
P1: Ok then thank u so much Vijay..
Me:Thank you Sirs ..Very nice meeting you all..
Dunno how it went..Though i was smiling ear to ear after coming out of the intervw room..But later on came to know
it went great for evry one ...so not sure..wat chance do i have..
Till than ...Fingers crossed :)

verdict: Converted :D

Hope it helps the next batch.
