Some words come back to haunt you.

A senior told me some weeks back.

Right now you may feel that the MBA course is hectic, but if you want to learn the real meaning of the word "hectic", wait till the last week before endterms. There are multiple project deadlines everyday, and as if that is not enough, there are the huge company forms to fill for "Summer Placements". Professors keep thinking of newer assignments and quizzes. The sleep you get progressively decreases, and you are confronted by vital choices like "Do I brush my teeth or do I take a bath? (can't do both cos the class is in 10 minutes)". People never get time for breakfast, and lunch and dinner is had in a mad rush.

At times like these you wonder "Why the hell did I come here?" and want to write mails to all CAT aspirants pleading with them to give it up.

But just remember, once you get through the last two weeks of a term, you emerge much more durable mentally and physically.

So just think of what a great time you will have at home during the term break, put your head down and slog.

By the way, in case you did not know, a person can get by on 3 hours of sleep a day.
