Take responsibility of yourself - creating positive change in yourself is the biggest challenge - and only you can do it to yourself.
There is a science to building confidence - taking small, logical steps.
An interview is not a test of your knowledge, but of how well you understand yourself
Start the PDP process early. The syllabus is huge because the syllabus is you
Ever wondered what Sachin Tendulkar would have been without Ramakant Vithal Achrekar or Manchester United without Sir Matt Busby and Sir Alex Ferguson. Though it is the players who work on the front stage it is the hard work of the coaches and mentors which acts as the catalyst for the success. Sujit sir played the same role in my journey with CL. In fact, Sujit sir was more than a mentor. Despite being a senior faculty at CL, he helped me at each and every step of the process. There was not a single time when I had to wait for my form to get reviewed or for any other queries. He was always prompt in his replies.
Sujit Sir is extremely approachable and warm. The PDPP sessions with him very helpful for the PI rounds as I got to learn a lot of things and read on the lines I was asked in the interviews and I could eventually drive a few interviews. By asking relevant questions and asking not just deeply but also widely helped me with content development and to know about the possible areas I should be updated on. The knowledge sessions were very succinct and relevant. The PDPP is a really well-designed program and it inculcated the habit of regular reading. The best aspect is that it's 'personalised'.
The sessions with Sujit Sir were extremely helpful for my PI rounds. Most importantly I learned from my mentor to tackle questions precisely and answer in bullets with brevity, which also is his way of mentoring. This had a huge positive impact on my performance. His suggestions used to be so rational and convincing that I gained a lot of confidence regarding my further improvement. This type of mentorship gives a lot of satisfaction and confidence. PDP Personalised is a great program for interview preparation but more than that it impacts life in a profound way. Learning here is not just confined to clearing an interview.
Sujit Sir was prompt in his reply and that gave a feeling of care which is generally lacking in other institutes. The fact that he answered queries according to my personality and not a generic answer made a huge difference. He was straight to the point and told me the weak points in my CV which helped me decide what to speak and what not to speak. I really liked Mr. Sujit's way of conversation, it generates confidence. The best part of the PDP Personalised program is the fact that it isn't really focussed on cracking interviews but making you realize your strengths and weaknesses which is basically what most of us don't know.
My interaction with Sujit sir changed my perception towards interviews. He highlighted my strengths, weaknesses which helped me to prepare better and crack my dream B-School. For various B-Schools application forms, Sujit sir reviewed my answers and provided his valuable feedback. A well-filled form leaves a good impression on the interviewer which in turn increases the chances of selection. PDP programme is well designed to groom a person and uncover different aspects of preparation. PDP videos, Gyan session, Mock PIs, GDs and of course mentoring are extremely helpful for any student to convert his/her dream B-School

'To the Point'
Favourite poem: 'If' by Rudyard Kipling. I really like these lines
If you can dream-and not make dreams your master;
If you can think-and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
