One of the most renowned and premier institutions after IIM. The highly qualified and experienced faculties are easily approachable who impart world class education services. Campus life at MDI Gurgaon is very good. Bad: there's competition amongst the students. Admission process: Students will be allocated with a seat on the basis of CAT/ GMAT entrance exam scores and marks in the last qualifying examinations and the final selection will be done on the basis of CAT scores, academic records, work experience, and GD-PI.
The personal interview round is conducted for 20 minutes wherein the panel members ask tricky questions to the question to test their IQ level. Few questions are asked related to Indian budget, Indian economy, personal interests, and others. I prepared for the PI round by reading news papers daily.

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 17 Sept 21
Ans.Having read some reviews online about IIM Lucknow, IIM Kozhikode, FMS, and MDI, here are some things I got to know which might be useful to you.
IIM Lucknow and IIM Kozhikode both are older brands. They have a proper recruiter base, alumni network, campus life, infrastructure, and better placements.
FMS also offers low-cost and decent placement facilities, but students of FMS claim to have no campus life and any eventful experience.
MDI is considered to be decent. Thankfully they have a better and more happening campus life, unlike FMS. Bain Capability Network recruits at MDI while Bain & Co. go to the other mentioned colleges.
