One week to go and it will be the slot-end exams. Time has flown past so rapidly.
Feel like I haven't learnt anything yet. All in all, one-sixth of fachchadom will be done.
FRA is FRA-itening. Some others seem manageable.
Have been reading a lot of blogs recently. Somehow those guys come out sounding so much better, so much more 'philosophical'. Not that I want to try.
This slot has been good in a way...not been completely devoid of the company I love so much.
18 hrs of traveling to spend 30 hrs with your loved ones...with the famed WIMWI acads breathing down your Ash Rai said "...because you're worth it."

Weeks 1 to 3.5

Been here almost 4 weeks now...quizzes happening with tremendous regularity.
Extra-currics too starting now...soon there will be no time to stand and stare.
News of PPOs and very lucrative internships, exchange programmes with some of the best B-schools in the world lure me everyday. The lack of sleep (I am down to an avg of 5 hrs a night) is hitting slowly...very soon we will be beyond it all.
The slot is moving at break-neck speed and will be over by the time we realize what just hit us. Then the super packed slots 2-5 along with T-Nites, Conflu, Chaos and the big daddy of them all...SUMMERS!!
Have been trying to come to terms with all that is happening around me and inside me. A lot has changed and not all changes are nice.
Read this line in the blog of a super-super tucchi..."The problem with dealing with yourself is that you can see through all your excuses." How true!!
Assuming there are 6 slots of 6 weeks each...I am already through with 10% of fachchadom.

First post from IIMA...

Been at WIMWI for a fortnight now...still coming to terms with the culture shock vis-a-vis IISc.
The place is amazing, the profs are amazing, the classmates are great.
IIMA has its own culture all aimed at bringing the best out of us...our endurance, punctuality, ability to deal with stress.
More from WIMWI in the days to come.
