For those of you who missed the CAT bus...

here is proof that performance does matter !

Ok, I thought about it too when I read the magazine, but Rashmi blogged it first (why am I sulking? ;-))) So I can be lazy and just link to her, and quote her:

we all know this at some level - that in the end it's we as individuals who are responsible for our career graphs - regardless of which institute we graduate from. But I'd just like to highlight this point, because I often meet young people who tried for IIMs, didn't make it and are now studying elsewhere. And feeling terrible about it. I want to say to all of you that 10 years from now it's really not going to matter. Although you may use it as an excuse to explain why you aren't doing as well as X, Y or Z.

For the readers who are not from India, replace IIM with "Sloan, Stanford etc" !
