Hi all,

It is a very common practice in India that to prepare for GMAT and taking admission in MBA colleges people leave there jobs for a period of 3 to 4 months, this is quite obvious in Indian context because here we don't have culture of sabbatical leave and moreover in India practically people work for 12 to 15 hours an they hardly find any quality time to focus on their exam preparation. Today one of consultant discussed that this practice of job break is viewed very negatively by the colleges during your application review and/or during interview . There are 99% chances of rejection on this.

To fish out the truth of this fact stated by learned consultant i request the forum to share their opinion and experiences . I personally feel that there is no point that this should be viewed negatively because leaving a job for 3 - 4 months and preparing for exams is in any case not bad in Indian context where we generally don't have very good work life balance.

Thanks in advance

Thanks 'R' for sharing our article.

Anudeep, to add to what the article says, not sure if you have data to back up your first statement? In our extensive experience of working with Indian candidates, there is a minuscule minority that takes the break you say is common.

I would not say that it diminishes the chances by 99% - that's pure speculation. But as the article says, there is some handicap and explaining to do.

Cheers,
