Urgent attention needed! Seniors please advise. (@PGDM-GMP)

I got a final admission offer for GMP, but unfortunately the mail confirming the same came to my spam folder on 27th of this month. It was only a while ago that I got a mail from SBI bank offering me student loan for the program, that I got to know of my admission. The admission requirement says 'you are supposed to send the draft by Saturday, 30th May'. In this short a time span, it's most likely to be delayed at least by a couple of days (Saturday and Sunday in between).

Please suggest what can I do? Even if I get to manage the cash (although I would need a loan), it is most likely to reach XLRI by Monday/Tuesday.

I think only first is correct and the reason being...."had been" implies that the action is still being done.....which is not the case here.......plz...correct me guys....if wrong..@rohipedia 

rohipedia
Rohit Vhora @rohipedia 3

@Rome0 No Sumit. "had been" indicates "past perfect progressive" tense, meaning that this activity was already done, before the alarm rang. 

This statement just changes the meaning, to rather what we want to conclude out of it, but I don't see any mistake in the sentence grammatically. 

Please add if you think I am missing on something.

Hi!

For GMBA it is mandatory that the candidate should have a minimum of 3 years work experience. We suggest the Masters in Global Business (MGB) program for you, which also gives you the option to convert your degree to a GMBA later (optional), subject to certain conditions.

MGB is a Masters qualification, specially designed for graduates with little (less than three years) or no work experience to give them knowledge and skill-sets required for a great career in global business. The MGB is designed to provide graduates in-depth cross-functional knowledge of business and a sound understanding of how business operates in a global environment. The course makes use of a blended learning model that includes simulations, group-work, real-world case studies, enabling students to relate theoretical aspects of business to the practical challenges facing today's global business managers. Through this program students get an opportunity to immerse in the exciting culture at each of these 3 cities, giving them an edge to understand global business practices at an early age hence, accomplishing an exemplary global tri-city structure


For MGB, pls find details on http://www.spjain.org/mgb/index.aspx for any queries you may write to mgb@spjain.org

Hi Nitin, post work experience, you are looking at GMAT as a route both in India and abroad. Can I please understand when you are looking to pursue an MBA? In India you might be able to next year but internationally the minimum is 3 years of work exp. and the average class is 5 years work exp. in the Top 50 global schools so if you are looking internationally, I would recommend you wait until 2017 if not 2018. I hope this helps. Thanks

Nitin Solanki @4u.solanki 2

i was mainly eager for MS in finance or financial engineering. even those courses asks for gmat as a prerequisite. based on my type of profile is it even feasible to think about giving gmat or should i drop the idea?

S B @SBhasin 29

My understanding is that ...the law requires that a job opening should be posted online for 30 or so days during which the job is open to all Singaporeans...if during the said period they do not find a suitable candidate they can hire expats. So its not impossible. But the finance industry is the major sector in SG. So I suggest you look up the job scenario specific for your industry and whether NUS/NTU matches your goals.

Can anyone throw some light on Advantages of doing MBA in Canada, as compared to doing one in the USA?

Also, a guide to the best colleges in Canada, for an MBA in Marketing?

Any help would be sincerely appreciated.

Hey Ishaan, you can pursue an MBA in Marketing in Canada and I think the biggest advantage is receiving a 2 year work permit post your 2 year MBA. Some of the top schools in Canada are Rotman, Sauder, Richard Ivey, McGill, HEC Montreal, Schulich and others. Thank you

Hi Puys,

I am planning to write GMAT in a couple of months, mostly by August. When do you think would be the ideal time for me to give the exam keeping in mind that I would like to apply for SP Jain and ISB early entry program.

I have just graduated and will be working for Mu Sigma from July 16th. Have heard that the work there is quite strenuous and makes it tough for preparation and stuffs.

Though I have the OG as an e-book with me, I dont have any other preparation materials  and Mock exams with me. Kindly if possible send me links for E-books and mocks. Also I have listed my academic qualifications below, kindly look into it and assess if it is good enough for ISB and SP Jain?

Thanks


10th-93.8%

12th-90.2%

B.Tech CGPA -9.46 

Not bad Extra curriculars.

To all those applicants who were unsuccessful in their efforts to get admitted to Tuck, it's been a very competitive year, and it's not reflecting of your own abilities. Some of you may have been offered specific feedback as well. In any case, read on for generic feedback from Tuck Admissions.

Hi Singh,

Your overall profile is decent and I would split your target US b-schools into three buckets.

Reach (1-2 schools) - Duke, Tuck, Cornell, Darden, UNC (Here, keep in mind that it's much harder to get into Duke, Tuck, Cornell)

Fit (2-3 schools) - McCombs, McDonough, Purdue, Indiana University, Rice University, Foster and so forth

Safe (2-3 schools) - Michigan state university, Babson, SMU Cox, Carroll plus others....

Remember, the final selection of the B-Schools is not black and white. It is subjective and a lot of thought has to go into to it. It is not as simple as picking two random schools from each bucket. It will depend on what your interests are, what kind of environment you thrive in(competitive like in Cornell or relaxed and collaborative as in Tuck for example), which part of USA/world you want to working, what kind of careers are you looking for etc. We would be glad to help you with that decision making process. Please PM for more clarity

Cheers!

Hey Armaan, Thanks a lot for your valuable insight. However i was just concerned about the fact of my low my grad scores as hey would hamper my chances a bit for getting into a good b school... Anyway i will keep in mind your list of b schools and plan accordingly.... Cheers!

Hi all,

I got 770(IR7, QA50, VA45) in my second GMAT attempt on 27/4/15. 

I joined Jamboree Regular classes only.

So My GMAT prep involved mostly the following material.

1. Official questions (Everything under the sun).

2. Jamboree material.

3. MGMAT (SC guide and test series only).

4. CR Powerscore Bible 

5. Explanations of only Official questions on online forums.

For my score,I'll give most of the credit only to Jamboree.

I think a good regular coaching class should be judged on following parameters.

1. Instructor :- I still remember the first day of my visit to the centre and after meeting the instructor my first statement to the counsellor was that I'll join Jamboree only if this guy teaches me. Though I had already done most of my research,it was one of the best decisions I ever made in such a short span of time ;). 

2. Study Material :- I firmly believe that GMAT can be cracked by practising only official questions or their replica. As a matter of fact, I found Jamboree material designed keeping only this philosophy in mind.

3. Environment of Centre -: Guys, We all have those moments during our prep when we are too lazy or distracted to focus on studies. During those moments, my feelings of contentment after self study sessions at the centre is just inexplicable.

Disclaimer :- GMAT is one of the most crucial decision of our career. So guys take whatever i said with a pinch of salt. Pay a visit to some centres in your city and take only an informed decision.
