MBA Tour

The MBA Tour is coming to India, woohoo. I'll be attending the event at Bangalore, on the 19th. I've got barely two weeks to get all set. I have my resume ready, but need to work on my elavator pitch. All i can think of is "Hi, my name is ........ I've got a few questions about XYZ, would you mind answering them...". As for what questions I am going to ask, I haven't got a clue. All I know is that I wont be asking about average GMAT score or app deadlines, or where the school is located. Seriously, I get so pissed off when people start off by saying their GMAT score and asking if that is enough to get admitted. Christ!

The reason I had decided to go down to Bangalore is coz the tour runs the whole day, from 9 AM to 6 PM. However, I was shocked to learn that while registration et al opens at 9 AM, the actual fair i.e.meeting the univeristy reps at the booths will only take place from 3 PM - 5PM - 2 hours!! That's it!!?? I've attended a couple of MBA fairs in India before, and believe me, if the booths are only open for 2 hours, it would be considered a victory if one could wriggle one's self through the crowd and grab a brochure :(
