What are the topics of GDs and PI interviews for admissions?Once an entrance test is cleared, the next stage of admissions to prestigious institutes, especially for MBA courses, includes Group Discussions (GDs) and Personal Interviews (PIs). Have any of you or anyone you know been part of these? It would be interesting to share experiences on this. Perhaps, for example, the topic of a GD was something really boring or maybe piqued your interest. Was the GD an intense one or was it just only one or two individuals doing all the talking? What about in an interview? Maybe you were confident in answering or were the interviewers so intimidating that you were a nervous wreck?
It would also be interesting to know if any of you was on the other side, as an interviewer or the official organizing the GD - share those experiences as well.
