Expert Suggestions on Preparation for Computer Based CAT-09

Life @ Great Lakes

- by Manik Kinra *

4:30 A.M.: The sound of my roommate's alarm wakes me up, I get up only to push the alarm button off. The signal though is that the day has started. I try opening my eyes but then fall back to sleep for a few more minutes. Suddenly, I find the clock ticking over to 6:15 A.M., and yes, considering the exams I have in coming days, I decide to wake up. By the time I could get spectacles over my eyes, I have already crushed a few books, which take more space of the bed then what I do. Somehow I am able to find the right book, and sit down to study for few hours before I realize I got to get ready for classes, and hence, start the dressing up process.

9:00 A.M.: Running all the way to institute campus, I manage to enter the class just before the Professor, and its only during this hour that I realize how much "JustInTime funda" holds good. Seeing the enthusiastic faces, the first thought that crops in my mind is, "Why can't I be energetic?" Probably Philosophy is what makes them so enthusiastic, and then starts a session full of fun-loving arguments, from atman to souls, from buffalos to sleeping tigers... We meet every soul and by the end of lecture, I am unable to find my own!

11:00 A.M.: After the first class, my bad karma follow me, I land up in another class - Statistics. Now this class can surely wake Kumbhkaran also. Prof. PKV, as we lovingly call him, is one of the most energetic Prof I have ever met. He runs in the class, he cracks fundoo jokes, and his knack of getting amazing expressions on his face makes us feel alive. His bending over style of saying "Exxxcuse meee" has become a rage in Great Lakes.

2:00 P.M.: After a heavy luncheon, we guys move to the nearby tea-stall. One thing is for sure, the owner of tea-stall is not only making lots of money but has somehow become an internal part of our lives. While using a few "Hi-tech and censored words", we have SP (Special Tea) with blah blah blah. All this while our eternal mates, dogs around Great Lakes, keep trying to come closer to have some biscuits. In the classroom, we are back to the same process of intense discussions and learnings.

5:00 P.M.: Time for some break... with sessions over, but then as some one said, there are some things which never end. If we are having a bad day, we might have a guest lecture. But post Guest Lecture, I am sure most realize that it was our good luck and not bad, that we have landed in the environment wherein much of learning is done through industry interactions. Any ways, if we don't have class our profs make sure that we have enough of work to do. Some more learnings, and then its time for GYM!

7:30 P.M.: Few of us get to Gym and work out and then move for dinner. Post dinner, we run against time listening to some of the very famous songs sung by fellow MBAs, expressing their feelings about how things are while the Courses are going on. In between all this, you will find lots of people making network, with chirkut aka orkut being highly famous here amongst Great Lakers.

11:00 P.M. and then 1:00 A.M... Time is still running and we have assignments to complete, you see more serious faces in Great Lakes at this hour then in morning. With deadlines to meet, we keep striving, believing that, "We have miles to go before we sleep". And by the time we land up on the bed we don't know what time it is, because most of the times, we only know what time we wake, sleeping is no more in our hands .

Next morning its another day, but the same schedule... just that the subjects change, but then whether its FA or Chinese... Great Lakers are grilled to the core.
