Four stamp-size photos, a hastily filled application, a search operation(to get my hands at my degree/marksheets etc), two
cheque leaves and a 5km bike ride later, Mr. Mariappan of Southern college (Mysore univ, contact centre) had one look
at the stack i gave him and said "This is spot admission, you'll get your admit-card in 10 days".
While this is, in every way, unlike spotting your registration number on JEE results published (pretty much anyone with a degree
and 15k on him will be admitted!), i did allow myself to let out a silent 'yippie':).
