  1. Its right that GD and PI is one of the main criteria on which the B-School judge the candidate.. If you do well in the entrance and not in the GD PI then your chances is slim. You need to be good in all the three departments.. Do well in all if you want admission in the best B School.. I would like to share some really helpful and good GD PI do's and Dont's ---
