@cat_albatross 4

It all depends what you want..some PSUs are good(work wise and pay wise) but at some point it saturates..i mean 3%hike etc...even pay commission is advised as per the financial condition of psu...considering all these factors u may opt for new iims...see of course u ll have to work a bit harder if u join new iims..but it is d future what u see frm here...i think decision making now becomes easier for u

Aman Kumar @amank2168 613

a) 30x+44y=10 , b) 40x+55y=13 (1/x and 1/y are speeds upstream and downstream) 5*a-4*b gives 10x=2 i.e. x=1/5, i.e. 44y = 4 and hence y= 1/11, Speeds are 5kmph upstream, 11 kmph downstream, still water speed will be avg of two = 8kmph. Hope it helps

karan kakkar @kkfedstrong 28

ya normally you will have to make 2 equations and solve them.which will be a long method..the following shortcut exists..we know 10=30/(b-w)+44/(b+w) now 44=4x11 so b+w = 4 or 11 if you will take it as 11 then b-w should be 5 right we get b(speed of boat)=8 and w(speed of water)=3 put it in second equation it will satisfy

A. And the very search makes the religious man humble, simple, innocent.

B. Religion is not a will to power; religion is a search for truth.

C. Religion has no mundane power like nuclear weapons and atom bombs and guns; its dimension is totally different.

D. Politics can easily interfere with religion; and it has been interfering all along, to such an extent that it has destroyed many religious values which are absolutely necessary for the survival of humanity and life on this earth.

Vipin Raina @chippycool2001 589

Suppose a candidate choose only pgpm, and did not get it.

Now your question is who will be considered 1st for pgpm, you or him.

Answer is, who has better composite score.

Devavrat Singh @devavrat.singh 5


Considering XLRI screwed up so royally they had to re-release results,... And the only reason they realised their screw up was because of a PG post, i don't think it's fair to compare SPJIMR with XLRI...Also, SPJIMR has refunded fees within 2-3 days and their results were posted as per timelines.. Not prolonged each day..And all this when half the batch is away for DOCC.. Going by your post, it seems you lack both patience and professional courtesy. Though you fears are rational, this is not how a future business leader is supposed to conduct himself/herself. I hope whichever college you do join, they can remedy this impatience of yours and probably teach you some professional etiquette..I wish you all the very best for your immediate future...

Bottom line-What to choose-IIM-B v.s. IIM-C ? ( A genuine fix b/w two equally good colleges)

Thanks in advance for responses.

This question might seem rhetorical at first as I am most deemed to answer it on my own. But still..

I am an MBA aspirant .I have been working in TCS since July 2012 now. My 1st CAT was in October ,2012, without any preparation and I scored 88.89 percentile. I mustered up all my wits and enrolled in TIME for weekend classes. After treading the CAT way for almost 8 months I took CAT in 2013 and lo ! 77.66 percentile is what I managed. I almost plunged myself into an abyss of depression ,became a social recluse and took a couple of months to recover. Somehow the lure of MBA went away as I started taking my job more seriously . However I still took CAT with utter nonchalance in  November,2014 as a passing sport and got 95.66%ile . I had also applied to other colleges this time(unlike earlier times) and I managed a call from  SIBM-Pune (converted ) , IIFT (converted) , XLRI (waitlisted;long shot), MDI (awaited) . Now in most certainty I am headed towards IIFT. But deep down I wince to make my peace with the fact  that I could not crack CAT and FAILED at managing even a single call from the Holy trinity of  A B and C . The same feeling of disgust with myself, the fisticuffs between who I am and that who I wanted to be that I had once embroiled myself into back in the IIT days resurfaced. I did leave a long cherished dream earlier when I could not crack IIT in my second attempt and joined XX Govt college in Kerela. I am still not over that emotional lacunae ; the very feeling of inferiority . Must I leave another dream yet again and join IIFT ? Needless to say this complex has permeated deep inside my marrows and might mostly remain there if I do so. Guys please help. I write this at 5 am with trembling fingers ..
I am growing older but not any wiser, should I risk everything and take another attempt at CAT? Or should I take the beaten road and abandon the ' I  ' word for ever....

I am not here for any debates. Please go ahead with what you feel is right. Encyclopedias are good but they are mere information and nothing else. Let me tell you straight, most of the B-school placement reports are exaggeration. Anyways, wishing you all the best for your future. If you are still aspiring for A/B/C better focus on that rather than engaging and defending an argument here on PG. 

I take my words back if they hurt you. May be these days 90% people get their dream jobs in these campuses. I might be misinformed.

Smoking Herbs @reid 616 @grondmaster @pagalguy 

I think we need to validate what @gauravgary200  has to say.

else necessary action needs to be taken.

I believe PG should not be a forum where people spread false information.People make career decisions based on these information.

Suggestion needed puys, fellow DTians & UDTians... Standing at a crucial point of time in my career !!

As many of you know, CAT'14 didn't go well for me. Now I am in a fix as to what to do next. Having graduated in 2011, I am really afraid to go for another attempt. On the other hand people who know me are telling me to take one last try. Maybe I wouldn't have thought much and would give it a try but what makes it more & more confusing is that I am out of job for last 14 months (Left job Jan'14 to prep for CAT). Anybody please help with the best possible way-outs with logical arguments. @next_big_thing  @scrabbler  , @the_hate  , @sid2222000  please help with your valuable experience 

P.S - I have a NM convert. Awaiting new IIMs result.

@the_hate i totally understand..but the desire to excel is what drives oneself.I totally remember the conversation i had with @Sabya1590 the day after we converted NM, at that moment he was not looking to join NM neither me forward 1 month stuck in a limbo..  ..but your live in peace has struck a chord.. thanks

Sir hoga tera baap @scrabbler 26,541

Full-time is better @Sabya1590 as you can write it on your resume. Even better if you can get a part-time job but show it as a full-time one But do a job for sure, because otherwise you will put too much pressure on yourself and that could hurt you on exam day.

Teaching is good, as it keeps you in touch, but make sure you don't make the common mistake of concentrating only on your stronger section as a result. But a problem with teaching is that it is not really a long-term career aspiration unless you are unambitious (like me, come to think of it). So it is not an effective "Plan B" in that sense; would be more logical to take up a job related to your core field and then your plan B could be to work your way up the ranks in that field (of course if you choose to do GMAT as a plan B then that logic does not apply).

Kolkata is way too far
