Preparation

I had studied at TIME, and to be honest that was more than enough. I also used to read a lot of good novels and newspapers to improve my verbal skills. The few months I spent as a teacher at TIME really helped me improve on my quant and DI skills. This was my second attempt, so it went quite smoothly in terms of preparing; I only had to revise. In my first attempt, I couldn't get a call because of my weak verbal section, so this time I made reading a habit to overcome it.


Experience in MBA Institute

Well, firstly I chose IIM Trichy (the dilemma was between that and IIFT) because I've always been highly interested in marketing, and there's no better place to do that than an IIM. Plus, the brand name matters of course. And it seems to be the right decision, because the experience here so far has been fantastic. Yes, the campus isn't great, but the professors are amazing, and the crowd is really good as well.
