Hi,

You have an interesting profile - I don't think you need to worry about getting into a good school. Some considerations:

1) Consider reducing your time horizon to 3 years instead of 5 - after 5 years, you might be on the higher side of the age bracket and that might work to your disadvantage.

2) Continue to do a good job at work.

3) Score as high as possible on your GMAT and TOEFL.

Reach out to us when you are ready, and we will be happy to take it forward.

Best,
Karthik

Qualifications
Xth :-64%
XII th:- 82%
Graduation :- 65% English (Hons) Humanities
Current work:- income tax inspector
Age:- 24 years
Nature of work:- not related to corporate work experience in anyway, it is government sector work. The work is divided into two categories

Assessment Section 
A job in this section includes work related to desk job details that come with the title of Income Tax Inspector.
You will be responsible for assessing income tax that people, company or partnership firms are liable to pay.
You will also have to handle refund claims and TDS (Tax Deduction at Source) queries Non-Assessment Section 
A job in this section will subject you to field work.

Inspectors employed in this section can be a part of the rapid response team that conducts raids.

The ITIs who are given non-assessment duties usually have to perform only clerical duties.

Their job is limited to filing official paperwork and occasionally accompanying raid teams

My query:- I always wanted to do an MBA as it was my dream to work for a private company. Due to financial constraints, I was not able to apply for MBA in foreign universities. I had no interest in Indian MBA as I always wanted to work in a foreign country. Also Indian MBA had very low chances to get me placed in a foreign firm. Private firms in India without an MBA gives very less salary and high load which would not have given me time to make my profile for foreign MBA.
Therefore, I decided to pursue a government job and finance my future MBA from that money.
I intend to do an MBA after 5 years. I can score score very well in GMAT and TOEFL from official mocks that I have given. I am interested in doing MBA from Canada so that I can get permanent residency. I am aiming for "average" b schools in Canada only.
Please I am in dire need of help. I have 5 years at my disposal. Please guide me on how can I make my profile in these 5 years so that the adcoms don't reject me. Also honestly tell me whether I am eligible of doing MBA from an average Business School in Canada only.
Thank you and God bless you !

Dear All,

We have a little more than a month to go for the New Year, and our R2 deadlines.

We've been working very hard to make those deadlines - so hard, in fact, that we've not taken the time to congratulate our R1 applicants.

And we've had excellent results so far. We had people getting offers from INSEAD. We've had folks who interviewed with Stanford, Kellogg, MIT, Ross, Tuck, Columbia, Fuqua, Darden, Cornell, Anderson, Tepper, McCombs, Rotman, Oxford, HEC, ISB and IIM A.

We wish them all the best as the results approach us. And we wish all of you all the best with you R2 applications.

Later,
Karthik Palaniappan

Hi August Academy,

I would like to request a suggestion/opinion on a confusion I am facing. One of the B-School Forum Moderators suggested that I reach out to you for help as you people have a rich experience in the MBA admissions process.
I received an admit from a business school in Georgia, USA with a full scholarship and stipend/graduate assistantship. Therefore, I asked other two MBA schools for which my decision was pending after the interview if it is possible to provide my application decision sooner as I already have a decision in hand and wish to make an informed decision before paying out the enrollment fee. The schools reverted with a request to send them a copy of "Admission Letter" and "Scholarship Letter" before taking the case to the Admissions Committee for decisions.
Now, I am little confused whether to provide the letters or details such as the name of program, amount, the deadline for payment, etc. to those schools. I am not sure whether this would put my only admit into jeopardy or help me.
Kindly advise. Hope to hear from you soon.

Hi,

I know we corresponded over phone, and resolved this - but I'm still posting a response here for the benefit of others who may be in the same situation.

It is ok to share information with the other school, as long as the school that has made the offer has not asked you to keep this in confidence.

Best wishes,
Karthik
