A dreary reminder

Just last week one could not have felt any thing but cheerful in XLRI...Better than expected grades in term one (esp as junta was expecting nothing but the rock bottom),An unprecedented summer placements, wetnites and alumni homecoming...It seemed that even midterms could not have spoilt the jolly mood in campus...then this happened. Its like the night before a storm...There is grave silence all around me and It is hard to put into words what I am feeling right now :(...Alas such tragedies serve as a dreary reminder as to how most things we celebrate are trivial.

Now back to business

What seemed to be 2 weeks of calm and bliss before and during SIP, the brutal truth of being a student in a B-School is sinking in. All of a sudden (trust me, I never saw it coming) I am in the midst of 4 midterms, one presentation and two assignments all lined up for this week. And how do I respond.... wtf watch a movie, play AOE...In all probability term 2 is gonna end up as a disaster. Ok I better start practicing those weird QT-2 problems now...

XL excels in summers too!

One of the first things one realizes on joining a B School is that at the end of the day the thing that matters the most is placements...In this regard XLRI has truly excelled in its summer placements process this year. The overall quality of placements have better than everyone but A, B and C...even there I suspect our domestic placements are comparable with lots of the top companies visiting only IIM A,B,C & XL (L too most of the times) or offering differential profiles and salaries. Its the international placements where we lack sorely...placecomm has promised to improve things, hopefully we improve in this area soon

ps: back to posting after a long time...
pps: will be interning in P&G CBD
