After getting calls, I was of the opinion that I was preparing well, and did not need any other specialized program. However, the long-drawn process was becoming tiresome and making me complacent. It was only after joining Backspace that I realized what I had been missing. The most important thing that I learnt was how to deal with diverse scenarios that the various GDs and PIs later posed at me. PPD prepared us for the worst of interviews and taught us how to play on our strengths, while simultaneously working on our weaknesses. The regular diverse discussions kept us on our feet. This improvement was showing on my results as well. Starting from a waitlist of 122 (SJSOM), I moved up through waitlist 63 (NITIE), waitlist 4 (MDI Gurgaon) and finally converted IIM Lucknow.
Thank you PPD for this wonderful journey at Backspace which will be with me forever.
