Posting some good matter abt GDPI process that seniors posted a few days back on the previous thread.

GD/PI Process:
----------------
The process is very simple. You will be bunched with people of your background and would be asked to come for a GD on one of the assigned dates. After the GD, there will be interviews for all short listed candidates. The whole process will take anywhere between 2-8 hours, depending on when your interview gets scheduled. I got out of the venue last year in an hour and half!

There might be a simple psychometric test immediately after your GD. This would assess your ethics.


Cheers,
Aztecmonk

Hi All,

I am posting my last year's GD/PI experience for your benefit....


I had my gd/pi slot for great lakes today. I had the GD first.

The topic given to us was a case study.....here goes
we are all the directors of a charitable organization that is looking to raise funds for health safety and human development programs in Africa. We have a found a donor in Mr.Mukesh ambani who has a srplus of 22 billion dollars. We have to approach him and convince him about donating the money and also explain to him as to how we are going to use those funds for our programs. He is supposed to be business minded.

So i just spoke about the major issues plaguing the african continent such as AIDS, and other diseases...the need to educate, provide basic facilities etc. I also said that we had to convince mukesh that he would stand to gain by sponsoring this campaign.......and so and so forth.....

Interview

there were 3 panelists.....after the intial formalities of greeting....they asked me to tell me something about myself which is not there in the resume....

I talked about my qualities as a person and my work and my hobbies....

they grilled me about corporate ethics....
one of the questions was that if i am stucjk in a traffic jam and a cop pulls me up for lack of license.....and it is getting late for the interview....wat would i do?

so, i just said that i would immediately inform the concerned people that i would be late.....and i would pay my fine in the meanwhile....

they asked if i may bribe the cop?

i said that i wont and i wont compromise on ethics....they kept on asking such questions and i kept on saying the same thing....

then they asked me about GSM and CDMA technologies....i answered that...

they asked me about movies....favourite actresses....wat do i do to beat stress?.....asked me about today's match.....who is ur role model.....y mba?......they asked me about my company infosys....positives and negatives of the company.....i answered all these......

overall above average performance.....i would say...not sure about the opinion of the panelists....

in the end they asked me if i have any questions...i asked them about the campus life in glakes?.....they explained for some 10 min about it....i just kept nodding....

i have a problem here

2. I would like to know from the current batch(or alumni) it has been some time since i have been out of school,my latest GMAT does not show any great potential for academics(although my older ones are not bad), how do u think i should portray,how i could manage the gruelling academic content with such a large disconnect time from my Graduation.? your views on this would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers
V
p.s: I can volunteer the use of my residence (am at chennai near hotel park sheraton,Boat Club Road) or at my Club, probably this weekend/saturday or sunday for a network session and if possible some kind of a mock GD/PI ofcourse we will need the help of some one like aztec or some other current champions.

Seniors please help , can it be shifted to 21st as 21-22 had been earmarked for the interview .

Please help me .

Any one got a call for the 20th at Bangalore??
Their websites says that Bangalore discussions are scheduled on 21st and 22nd.. Wondering if the date mentioned in my appl status is incorrect...

My profile:

Reposting from the Admissions thread -

With the GD/PI call list out, now seems to be a good time for Great Lakes institute to be added into the GD/PI Connect feature. :smile:

This gives us a fair idea of our fellow puys with the same GD/PI slots and their profiles. Folks, let's all post our slots and profiles once GLIM is added to this.

Link -> Home - PaGaLGuY GD-PI Connect

I request the moderators to add GLIM into the list of institutes that have announed their call list in the GDPI Connect feature.

Could the seniors follow up with this if possible please?
