    Last Weeks at SCMHRD and Mumbai

    I returned to college in mid March for the last two weeks at SCMHRD; two weeks filled with exams and vivas. Began first shot of the exams with the viva for our Finance Paper on 21st March. It was short, to the point and sweet with average marks. We also collected out hall tickets on that day. Two days prior to that Sneha got placed. It was also the same day that Namrata manage to break a leg (and I’m not talking show business) while shopping. She sure got fussed over for two weeks. My first written paper was for World Class Management on 26th of March and the paper…

    More Interviews and Tests

    Spent most of Sunday working on the Project Management presentation for Monday evening and so had to spend the little time available on Monday morning preparing for the Corporate Finance quiz. The quiz turned out to be dedicated to the time value of money which was pretty decent, so I won’t complain about that. Could have done better I guess. Tuesday usually is a light day, as is Wednesday. However, they are usually consumed in working on the new Financial Statement Analysis case or some other assignment that manages to crop up. Monday to Wednesday evenings were spent interviewing juniors for the Admissions Core Committee, the last obligation we have…

    Interviews & Mumbai Calling

    Semester 3 is definitely lighter than the past two semesters, possibly because I don’t have admissions work 🙂 Have spent the last week interviewing juniors for the Corporate Communications Team. The interviews have been mini-ragging sessions in themselves. Some members of the junior batch are really bad, while some were really good. This time the selection procedure was better organized than last year. We have also finished of the first set of interviews for the Admissions Team as of yesterday. Next round for the shortlisted candidates is on Monday. One thing is definite about the interviews. It is easier to get into SCMHRD than to get into an SCMHRD committee.…

    Ek Saal Baad

    This day last year, more than 180 students found their way to a Business School in Hinjewadi. The school was Symbiosis Centre for Management and HRD and yours truly was one of those 180+ students. The first fortnight at SCMHRD was crazy. But, that was just the beginning. What followed was a crazy semester during which Ravi and me formed the WebComm and redesigned and relaunched the SCMHRD website. Also joined the Admissions Team, which would ensure that the next semester would be more hectic than the first. Not because of the hectic schedule we have at college, but because Admissions demanded our total dedication, which we did. The admissions…

    It is Finished! SCMHRD Final Merit list is now online

    As of today, the Admissions Process has finally come to an end. The Final Merit List for SCMHRD is now available on the website. Admissions work at SCMHRD has been an excellent experience indeed. We did everything that was to be done, right from designing every single page of the brochure to sending teams on drives, to advertisements and finally the entire GDPI process. The GDPI process this year was held at the International Convention Centre in Pune from the 27th of January and the 2nd of February, followed by interviews for handicapped candidates on 3rd at our college itself. Yours truly was responsible for the initial identity verification process…

    Life Last Two Months

    Have I been busy or have I been bored, considering my last post was two months back! Well, busy is more like it. WebComm Team This team was instituted after Ravi and I joined / founded it. And work was hectic the last week of August and the first week of September. While we did get the SCMHRD site up and running, as you can see it is painfully slow. There’s absolutely nothing I can do to speed it up except redesign the entire site. I’ve been working on a layout and speeded up the entire thing. A test site has worked decently, but I guess I will have to…

    NMAT 2006

    Had written in yesterday about the NMAT being held on Sunday. My center for the same was Satheye College in Vile Parle. Picked up AJJ on the way there. We reached there well in time. And this turned out to be really early, because we just had to kill time until ten minutes before the exam. The paper was OK. I attempted a decent amount. But, I just don’t know what to expect! Made it for mass in time, the roads were extremely clear 🙂 Long sermon…

    Two more done, few more to go

    Today was eventful, in the sense that I finished the application work of two more colleges, viz. NITIE and MDI. I still another 4-5 colleges left to apply to which should be done by next week. Before that met up with pals in Powai. We intended to go to Pizza Hut, but dropped the idea because of the long waiting time. Did I mention that I hate waiting for my food? We ended up eating Alu Parathas at Galleria in Powai. (I always forget to take pics!) After this I dropped in at NITIE. It happens to be an extremely peaceful and beautiful place with a good amount of greenery…
