Account of my B-skool life..Contd

Yeah so as I was saying....subjects go way above the nut's nutty head...sample this.....
Quant prof: So ,what is the probability of insurance companies insuring people prone to accidents???
Nut : "blink blink blink" pause then more "blink blink blink"....
Quant prof: This can be considered as black and white balls in two urns, black being
people prone say ' p' and white being people not prone say 'q' now it is similar to
drawing a black ball for an urn which represents insurance companies insuring
people ,now this is conditional probability.....blah blah blah blah....

P.S :The nut has no clue about the solution till now and the problem aint clear even after the subject is done away with and from the ignorance level the probability of the nut getting an A+ is effectively zilch..zero... She hasnt yet fathomed the need for probability in an MBA

Another gem...
A humungous assignment of accounts has been given and your's truly doesnt have an iota of knowledge of what comes on assets side and what on the liability side. Now she has to pick an industry of her choice with given amount and manage the business incl accounts obviously for 3 whole months!!!! She does kick-ass research( fortunately her googling skills are decent) and zeroes in on matchstick industry....prepares a month's accounts and then lo and behold!! discovers a glitch in the capital calculation after spending 2 sleepless nights over the bloody thing!!!! :,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,(. Like in schools unimpressed by a student's work the teacher scribbles in red RE-DO... the nut does it all over again this time correctly for a month and then next month begins and then 'gyaan' from a commerce friend enlightens her about the tediousness involved coz Madam carried away by the idea chose too many raw materials which made the already miserable life more miserable as it involved nearly 4 times the calculations......so now CHUCK this again... again now new industry selected..potteries...does decently then the balance sheets dont tally!!!! :,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,( nother sleepless night on this..numerous checks...then finally chuck....same story for remaining 2 months.... The assignment had penalty of 2 marks if submitted late..so bunks 2 classes to complete it ..finally completed after a week of sleepless nights...a sigh of relief escapes...whew!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but the relief is shortlived when she gets to know that nearly 75% of the class also had the brilliant idea of bunking classes to complete it...obviously the profs are livid...
PUNISHMENT: 2 GRADE DROPS,1 EACH IN A SUBJECT!!!!! that was the last straw that broke the camel's back.....already abysmal performance on top it this!!!! LIFE SUCKS...BIG TIME......
Then the gruelling sessions of self-awareness, self-actualisation.. in form of organizational behavior ..how you are the buliding block of the organization...all gas which your's truly sucks at....with loads of readings from text and harvard business review thrown into the already overflowing cauldron of misery ....
Then whoosh the end terms are here 'tra-la-la-la'.....to suck more blood out of the already emaciated kids.....
each day goes at a lightning pace.....finally term done!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Home beckons.... some salvaging of battered,bruised ego...with murmurs of encouragement...patient hearing to all the cribbing...good food!!!....sleep!!!....love!!!!.....aaah heaven !!!!! would never want to leave the cocoon that home offers.....but alas ...
Term 2 beckons arrogantly......

Nice account. Commisserations and apologies on your lacklustre performance in term 1. But dont lose heart, I am sure you can more than make up in the remaining terms, especially after your refreshing trip to your "permanent home", which is rt now on a certain top floor in a more rocking environment.
