I scored 90% in my 10th and 94% in my 12th exams. I got into a top college. I got placed in infosys. However, by this time (from my 2nd year) there were issues at home and I had to start a part time business to generate income while studying. As a…
I could not join Infosys. I decided to try something on my own. I tried out a business for 4.5 years. It did not work out as well as I had thought it would.
Now, I have no relevant work experience that is well documented. It is just my own small business which will not even be considered.
I am already 26 years old. I have a sister who has to be married (atleast she is working). My parents are getting old.
Now, It seems that I have ruined my career and my life. All my friends have joined the top IT companies and are doing well (either onsite or promotions). Some have already graduated from MBA and are well placed. Some have graduated from MS and are working.
You can try for a MBA from FMS.. Which has a very good Return On Investment.. Maximum 2.5 lakhs approx and you are done with MBA from a very good college and they just consider CAT Score for call.. In PI, you can defend yourself.. IIMs would not give that chance to you..
I am not telling you that you should not try.. But it just that i just don't want to give you false hope.. If you would not score 99.5, it ll be very difficult to get a call from Old IIMs as they are giving quite a weight to your academic performance.. But You never know when good luck awaits you and i dunn understand their system anyways.. So i will say "Go for it". Life must have some good plans for you :)
Dude! Don't get me wrong.. Of course you can get a call from Older IIMs including IIM B.. Am just a Too Realistic guy.. So telling you to aim for Higher, So at least you ll have something better if not the best as per your expectation.. You need to try harder than any others as quite a lot depends on your career choices 😃
P.S. People having 92 percentile also get call from IIM B 😃 ;)
yup. dude.. there's always light at the end of the tunnel. even though you might feel hopeless right now but when i look at those marks in 10th and 12th i feel that you are a good student......... plus you might get a call from iim b,c,shillong,indore,lucknow kozhikode if you get 95+ percentile. add to that mdi and spjimr... if i were you i wouldnt waste a minute more and start preparing for cat2013 ...
Are you guys serious when you say that I might get a call from IIM C for 95? Never heard that.
Dude......I just want to say to you that life is all about struggle......I dont know what awaits you in near future....but one thing is for sure, if you lose hope and despair, you are going to achieve nothing......but if you will stand up and fight I can assure you, you will emerge as a Winner......YOU still have lot of option just you have to pick one.....If you choose MBA...there are many institute whose fees is not that high...........Few of them are..
General Category dude!
Btw...don't IIM B and C give financial aid to people whose income or family income is below 3-4L per annum?
IMO you stand a good chnace at ISB... fee is high but they give scholarships....ISB looks at diversity factor and a entrepreneurial venture definitely gives u many extra points.....your 5 years of exp also is at par with ISB's age and experience bracket....u will need a high GMAT score through (preferably 700+).....
