If you were to prepare for the ISI interview what would you do exactly? :) . Any idea how the interview will be, as in, just plain eco/math questions like in the entrance test or gen stuff from UG/workex?
Thanks Deepak. Wish u the same :)
I would hv revised micro, maths n stats again. Bcoz there's quite a gap b/w 23rd june n 9th july. N i guess i wudve practised more stats questions (i think I'll still do that in the last couple of days). As far as i know they ask plain maths/eco questions. In fact a senior told me that all people in one session r given the same 2 questions n they r given time 2 think abt it b4 they present their solution to the panel. So u prefer isi to dse, right?
I'm not sure if I'm right in preferring ISI to DSE. I am a computer science major and know pretty little about eco colleges. I do know that the pedigree of both these institutes is indisputable. Though, ISI has a stronger research focus, I have been led to believe. Is that correct?
And thank you for the tip. I should dig up stat and get the basics right. I still can't get my intuition right on macro on many occasions. Also, I see that our interviews happen at the same time on the 9th of July. Looking forward to meeting you.
I'm not sure but I think u r right. U hv 2 ask urself if u want to study only hard core quantitative economics. I personally prefer DSE's course structure, though I know the overall experience at ISI would be better :P
See u there :D
Hey Deepak i just spoke to a friend of mine who gave the interview in Kolkata. She said the interview lasted for 30-35 mins. Each person was given one maths question and one eco question to solve. They gave hints when she got stuck. Sounds ok. I guess I should revise something or else I'll make a fool of myself. Sigh.
