The personal interview is a critical step in MBA admission process and should not be taken lightly. PI is aimed at knowing a candidate more intimately - assessing the clarity of thinking process, future goals and the 'fit' factor with the B-school.

It provides the admission selection committee of a B school to evaluate your interpersonal and soft skills. With this aim MBA Rendezvous is presenting you PI tips so that you can be successful. Today you will read PI tips on:

What will happen if I am rejected in a Personal Interview?
Dealing with rejection is not easy, especially after you painstakingly prepare for MBA entrance exams and laboriously fill out the applications forms of your favourite business schools.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of candidates get rejected in Personal Interviews, but that does not mean that it is the end of the world. Failure is the stepping stone to success.
So, if you are unfortunately rejected in a Personal Interview, you should make an attempt to understand what went wrong. Many candidates lose hope once they are given a rejection letter.
If you are determined to do an MBA despite getting a rejection, you should approach the admissions team of the business school that rejected you and find out the reason for not being selected for their business program.
Some schools provide feedback on your performance. And based on their feedback, you can work on your weaknesses and apply again in the coming years.
Successful businessmen and businesswomen did not gain fame overnight. They too faced many rejections along the way. They managed to succeed because they were determined and persistent in reaching their goals. 
Sometimes, candidates get rejected because they do not fit into the culture of a business school well. So, explore other business schools in which you will be a good fit. There are hundreds of prestigious colleges in India and beyond. So, don’t get disheartened by one rejection letter. 
The world is full of opportunities. Alexander Graham Bell, a world-renowned scientist, once said, “When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.”
Sometimes, failures come as eye-openers for us. We all have weaknesses and strengths; we simply have to identify them and create a future where we tap on our strengths and work on our weaknesses.
Stay informed, stay ahead and stay inspired with MBA Rendezvous
