Warning : This approach may not work in all the Interviews but what’s the harm in trying it out and see what happens. If it works in your favour, that’s great. If it doesn’t, that’s fine too.

It’s usually advisable not to discuss the politics during the Interview because all the time you spend on this you are not talking anything about why you are special, different and therefore valuable to the school.

So your goal should be to get in, not to convince anyone of anything. The only relevant topic is you. The Interviewer won’t care what your precious position is, and they won’t be entertaining you long enough to figure it out either way

(There are few exceptions to this rule, this is one of them because he is closely connected with this and Interviewer really wants to know about this)

Along with there were other few students from GD WAT PI Revolution, including Aastha( IIM-Lucknow) , Suraj (IIM-Bangalore) and many more who used this strategy to their advantage. I have included their detailed case studies inside the course.

All of them used principles of Irresistible Intrigue Formula to their advantage. Learn Irresistible Intrigue Formula here
