Cold pizza and warm coke

As I walked back from the Pre-Placement Talk (PPT) of a prominent consulting company, T asked me “how come you’re walking back so soon?”

me: what do you mean?
T: have you signed out of the process?
me: no
T: are you applying to this company?
me: yes of course
T: then why the hell aren’t you putting ACP (“after class participation” for the uninitiated)?
me: have talked to a few people from this industry and have all my doubts more or less cleared. don’t find any value add in putting arbit CP.
T: still yaar, if you want to join this company, it’s better you put CP. it’ll help your chances.
me (dumbfounded): ugh… ok…

I get back to try and ingest the cold pizza and warm coke.
