Last few months have been a roller coaster ride for me 🙂
In continuation to my last post , to my amazement I got i/v call from IIM-B and IIM-L too (Now i regret that I missed IIM-A deadline). To be very frank, I never thought that my profile will get selected. But then when I got the i/v call, I was just soooo happy that I didnt prepare for interview for quite sometime 😛
Coming to ISB, IIM-B and IIM-L interviews, each one was an experience! Needless to say, ISB being my first interview, I did screw up. IIM-B was much better as I was able to answer some of the tricky ones too (atleast I thought so :P). And then IIM-L was little more better.
However in the process, I learnt how important it was to be concisely clear about you and your goals and also very soon realized that it indeed was the most difficult part to know 🙂 Coming to results… it was quite disheartening when I was wait-listed in ISB. And the worst part with ISB is that they do not given any wait-list number so I have nothing but to wait till March this year. I started loosing hope or rather should say that I became more impatient!
Then, within few days, I had i/v for IIM-B course. I mustered all hope and courage to face IIM-B. The i/v went good compared to ISB i/v and I was hopeful again (over-optimistic me!!). But this hope was not to last long; IIM-B also wait-listed me. But this time I got wait-list number. I was @ 12. I found that last year, IIM-B cleared till wait-list 22!! And I was hopeful again 😛 But to my luck (yes my luck), wait-list crawled slowly till 8 and then didn’t budge! Again, I had my i/v for IIM-L course lined up in few days. I again mustered all my hope and courage to face IIM-L. And this time, the i/v was little more better. And i was hopeful again 😀
And to my luck, I got offer from IIM-L. And the cherry on the cake – D also got offer from IIM-L. So, I guess now i can connect the dots.. why was I wait-listed everywhere else 😀
However, lately i heard that IIM-B waitlist is going to crawl again. I really don’t know what is next but I am just thrilled and happy for now!
