SNAP PI Experience of one the SNAP 2015 aspirant “There were two interviewers. I had mentioned my father as my role model so the first question was related to that. They asked me how does he inspire me? I told them about his influence on my personal life as well as my professional life and how he motivates me to work harder towards my goals. Then they asked some questions about my family. Then hobbies, I told them about my inclination towards art and craft and towards designing apparels and accessories. “You are an artist, why don’t you join NIFT or NID?” I told them about the courses offered at designing institutes and about the courses offered at SIBM and how the latter is more relevant to my career goals than the former. And I was able to convince them. They posed the question that: “Did your father do an MBA?” I told them no. So they asked me if he could do it without an MBA, why are you wasting two years, go and start your venture straightaway”. to which I told them some of my father’s experiences and told them how studying in SIBM will help me in doing business in a better way.”
Prakriti Sharma, who secured admission to IIM Kozhikode, shared her experience. She says, “My topic for WAT was ‘all government without the consent of the governed is the very definition of slavery’. I wrote about the importance of democracy and talked about the 13th amendment brought by Lincoln. I talked of the Indian context as well and tried to touch upon as many different angles as possible.”
Jayesh Ruchandani, who secured admission to IIM Kashipur says that time allotted to him for WAT was 25 minutes out of which he spent around 13 minutes towards thinking and structuring the points and utilized remaining time in writing the essay. He also said that he was able to complete his WAT in around 20 minutes.
