Dean's List

P1-P2 done. I will not be making it to the Dean's List (Top 10% of the class) despite an above average performance. I feel pretty relieved as I can now start seriously focusing on finding a job. A brief note on the importance of being on Dean's List

  • If you don't have a CV that stands out, this helps.
  • Auto-shortlisting by consulting companies
  • Some bragging rights
  • Really push the depth of your learning
  • You need to be clever or hardworking or both
  • Might distract you from the pragmatic needs of job hunting..
I would've liked to be on the list as I don't do too good on interviews, but that's that..
