A Crash Course on Decision making about Studying Abroad by Priyank Shrivastava in response to 3 Options After MS in USA – Job, Studies or Go Home.
Phew..This one has really heated up… I would rather say that one should not deviate from the decision one takes about higher education in a foreign land. I mean a single article shouldn’t really affect your goals and aspiration..And if it does, then you ain’t a decision maker at all..!!
Now for those, who think they are God in their own yard,,,You guyz have no business at all to say what’s right or what’s not.
The sole purpose of this wonderful blog is to project real picture of a world that every student dreams of, but hasn’t seen or experienced. It has some Pros and some cons. And people here are encouraged here to openly express their views.
So what’s the BIG Deal.. Why to be at war with it…
If you know so much about what’s right and what’s wrong about Education in USA, then you better open a Education counseling center, trust me..you’ll make good bucks with it..thus you won’t need to go to US to earn good money..!!
Now to the point…. One single (or subsequent) post shouldn’t really change your decision… Planning for education abroad isn’t a thing that you plan one day before, or after hearing about Mr XYZ studying abroad.
It really demands a lot of introspection and logical thinking.
It’s a process that takes almost a year to materialize.
And if at the end of this process you read an article and then think of changing your opinion,,sounds crap to me.. Guyz…this is a life changing moment, You’ve got to back your decision..and to do so..
You have to be clear on every front,,I specifically mean on the financial front…
Foreign education is not a rosy picture…At All…And for those who say that HSB promotes this…think again man,,there have been a lot of post on this forum, which duly discuss about the dis advantages of foreign education, specially in the US.
I for one, personally didn’t want to come to US for my MS.
I started reading this blog in august 2011. I should really thank HSB for such a wonderful initiative. This blog has really helped me in not coming to US for my MS…But I never complained, not did I write anything against anyone.
That’s because I’ve backed my decision. And I thank every bit of it to HSB for also highlighting the negatives of US education system.
For those who are curious to know where have landed up..Well I’ve got an admit from Ecole Poytechniqe – ParisTech. in France and also from Grenoble INP – France.
I’m sure only a few of you might’ve heard about the above said universities, but these universities are among the top in France and have extensive research going on in Smart Grids.
The point that I want to specify here is that different people have different opinion.
One should not gauge what is right or wrong based on the no of successful people who have an opinion.
If your opinion matches with others, it’s good for you..go ahead with your decision, and if it doesn’t, then back yourself to go with your opinion.. But please just don’t start changing your opinion after reading just one article.
Talk with your friends who have studied abroad,, they will tell you that life is very different there, from one in India.
You have to really prove yourself to get a job (I mean permanent job) there. You’ve got to back yourself.
Success or Failure depends upon how good you are dealing with circumstances. It depends upon how much amount of handwork you put in.
So if you have decided to go to XYZ country to study, back yourself and move ahead. there’s no room for confusion my friends..
As i say “World is a laboratory for an inquiring mind”.
Keep posting such articles . I’m a fan of yours. And thanks again for providing such a wonderful experience sharing forum, It has really helped me in pursuit of my MS education.Image BY.
