Purgatory: (v) the condition or process of purification of soul, in a state of grace, made ready for Heaven.

Yes I am in purgatory; being tested and purified to be chosen not for heaven but, in my case, for a b-school. IESE business school, with which I interviewed a week back, has placed me on a wait list and has invited me to attend an Assessment day. To me this is good news. Some one thinks I'm worth the test. IESE apparently does so and needs some re-assurance that i'm the right person and I'm actually happy to undergo the assessment. As per their mail its a good chance to assess my fit with the culture of the school. I'll do my best and only time will tell if I make it to (heaven?)..


  1. Hi Hari,
    It is good news - they want to get to know you better, and what could be nicer than an opportunity to be yourself ?
    You have great MBA application tips, I like your note about not reaching out to the interviewer more than once and understanding the formal structure of the overall interview process.
    Good luck with the application and keep posting,

  2. Hi Yael, Totally agree with you and can't wait for the day.
    Thank you so much for your kind words of appreciation.

  3. Hi buddy,

    Congrats. Give your best and I don't see a reason why you should not get there.

    For me season of dings started....


  4. Sree, thanks a lot and I'm sorry to hear about your rejection. Keep it cool.
