Very bleak chance unless you have very differentiated background.

Sponsoring a girl child is hardly considered social activity. However going by your educational profile and experience, you do have a chance.

Absolutely go for it. You have all the elements needed to get shortlisted fr intv. Make sure your goals are alligned with tour past exp. A clear well written SOP and good LoR should definitely give you a interview. If you do well in your intv I think you have high probability to get admitted. Good luck!

Hello everyone,

I am currently filling up the EPGP application form and have a small query regarding the Work Experience section. For over 6 years, I had been an entrepreneur and worked on my own ventures. I am not sure what kind of documents I need to submit as a proof. Can anyone please help me out?

Thank You.

I am a r-1 admit and had my WAT on skype.

WAT will happen 30 min before your interview. You will get a link which will enable your comp screen to an invigilator. Do this 5 min before start of your WAT timer. After that you will receive an email with the topic. You need to write around 250 words on it. Take your stand on the topic and present it coherently ending with a conclusion. It should be in a paragraph format and not bullet points. Make sure you have 5 min left for proof reading.

Also, do not panic out too much over it. Just calmly think about what stand you want to take and why and quote the same. After you are done just email back your response to the same id.

Good luck!
