hmm...wai do i get the feelin that XL-comparison-threads are a craze at PG?
me seems to be bumpin into em evry other time me steps in here :D
muh dear man, you doth hav a very interesting predicament (as interesting predicaments go)...
many hav peeked in here to drop a line abt your choice, but i spose dat time's already past... you're either on your way to XL rite now, or are sharpenin your pencils to get ready for D-Day at FMS.
either way's fine by me. but like one of our frends put it here, i just hope you've made a decision that you wont look bak on and hav misgivings abt.
and to my squabbling brethren: XL? FMS? whoz better? i'll tell YOU who.
if there's one thing summers has taught me, it's this...it aint where you're from, it's wat you do, and how you do it that counts. simple and friggin plain.
it aint the dude from IIMA that always walks away with the honors...its more likely to be the guy from IIMI who puts fite like there aint no friggin 2moro...
your immediate boss doesnt let your bskool brand influence the way he evaluates you...its pure performance me frend.
ofcourse, i say this understandin dat at some base level, he's rated you way above the rest of the population...he's kept in mind that you're from this IIM or from XL or FMS or wat hav you...true, wen compared to a Nirma grad or sumthin, there's a world of difference in the respect you're accorded...but hey! between 2 grads from the same tier of institutes, its pure performance!
but heck, i bet you already knew dat
so wai all this long-windedness?
just to say that...all those who made noises abt which bskool to select....people...it dont matter if u went to IIMA...if all you were gonna do there is graduate in the bottom quarter of the class...or be average at best...
the difference between an XL or an FMS onli comes if you're gonna top in either of the places...the top boyz n galz go to different companies in different instis on day zero of placements...
and ya, dont ask me abt the ones who dont graduate on top...coz well, the loser's world is the same, whichever insti you're at :D
at the end of d friggin day, if you're a performer, doesnt matter where you're at...
companies'll line up in front of ya...tis onli the names of the companies that'll differ...wat with offers n all also bein comparable across instis these days...
and as for 10 yrs down the line...or 5...or 1...if you'll make your company some money, the company'll pay you for it ...doesnt matter where you're from
my leeetle bit of advice to ppl who wanna sort:
1. make a vow dat you're gonna crack the next 2 years
2. close your eyes and pick your school (or post here and let da debate run forever)
3. dont look back. there aint nothin bak there.
4. fulfil dat vow
simple and very plain.
