The Battle May Be Won But The War Continues – FINAL FRONTIER v 2.00 – What After CAT?
So round one is over and this one may have gone towards you, but believe you me this was the easy part (as astonishing as it may sound) and the tough part starts from here on.
Level 1 was a battle among the amateurs, but Level 2 will be fought between the professionals.
Just to give you a picture of how things stand, CAT eliminates and selects only those who are among the best in the country and to get into the B-school of your dreams you will be in consideration among the cream of the country and no matter how confident you are of yourself always remember,”There is always a bigger fish out there.”
But to help you in the battles to come we will continue to give you our unconditional support and be there with you in your moments of highs to keep you grounded and in your down moments to give you a hand to lift you up, but remember whenever you fall, fall on your back so that you can get back up again and keep fighting.
Times will be tough from here on and you are about to embark on a journey which will change your life completely from here on in but change is not always a bad thing and we the Admissions Team of IIM Raipur over the course of next few months will help you adapt to that change and get you ready and raring to go for the journey ahead as we have already embarked on this journey together and it is our duty to help you till the very end wherever it may take us.
Now the moment of reckoning has passed and JUDGEMENT DAY is upon us.
The season of group discussions, group activity, written ability tests and last but not the least, the topping on the cake the Personal Interviews is here.
This stage will be a test of nerves and skills and you as an individual will need to stand up and face the music, but have faith in yourself and believe in your own abilities. (which as clichéd as it sounds is the only true way to achieve anything in life)
Ending with a quote to get you ready for this next stage, no points for guessing where this is from-
“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!” -Sylvester Stallone,( Rocky Balboa a.k.a The Italian Stallion)
