Puys I'm posting an interactive map of IIT Kanpur from Wikimapia
hope you this will be helpful to you people.
HI puys, I'm a fresher and I have also got through. Can anybody tell me what are the benefits of having work ex in an institute like IIT K? Will they be in any better and advantageous position than a fresher in terms of priority, placement, etc?
SOP is a personilised stuff abanchii.
u can write anything in it as long as u can prove urself.
seldom do they predecide the entrance of a student based on SOP.
as i said yesterday, ur SOP is fine.
more importantly if u think its fine, seal it off
i can see a very big difference in ur SOP from yesterday
but i still find certain information redundant.
the part where u go explaining about MBA (last but two para) is un-needed.
the reason im saying that is because u might be questioned on that during their interview.
the panel will have a different outlook towards marketing and they might cross-question u on that. because after all they know better about management that u do.
the last para is good.
thats ur best statement.
and regarding ur question on SOP, generally they expect it to be withing the specified limit.
most institutes give certain number of lines following the question.
if u exceed u will have to be writting in the blank spaces and that doesnt look good.
they go through the SOP and u can be questioned on that.
but there is no ground rule.
there has been instances where one panelist sits there reading ur SOP and the other questioning u on various things.
do post ur SOP if u make any further modifications
its good in a way that u have told whatever is there in ur mind.
but it sounds more like ur talking hype rather than facts.
E.G. u have told that an MBA from IIT will help u hone ur technical knowledge and managerial skillls, but how?
what makes u think it will be that way?
i dont see any part where u have tried to put forth ur strength.
also, why IITB/how IITB will help u is lacking.
try to give any example of what u did in the cultural commitee.
any suggestions u brought, that will validate ur points.
u say u have learnt values from ur parents. what are those?
how do u think they influenced you.
basically everybody wld say things like these. and the folks who read ur SOP would be so used to these creamy things everybody throw at them.
u need to make ur SOP stand out. there has to be a few interesting things added.
they need to feel "ok this guy is just not all talk, he does know a few things"
i wld recommend u to go thru a couple of SOP in this thread and get an idea.
post it back, we will look into it
all the best
