With less than 1 month of GMAT preparation, he scored 730. He wanted to be an investment banker / analyst in Wall Street.
He’s currently in school with full scholarship studying for an M.S. in finance.
He landed in Chicago, looked around, and said, “Wow, I’m in the U.S.”
The following pictures will show you why there was a “WOW Factor”. Well, he looked around and found eye-catching images, which words cannot describe…
It’s not just the pretty girls at the Navy Pier, beautiful downtown and nightlife, but it’s the inspiration and the desire to succeed, as well as the dream to reach new heights that drive him.
He’s a good old friend of mine, we went to school together and was my undergrad roomie. He was a playful, funny college guy, well known for his quantitative, analytical skills and other off-curricular skills.
I really cannot include all that he’s well-known for.
I remember when I had to convince him to take the Maths semester exam during the 3rd year.
He was planning to take a back log since he was not able to prepare for the exam the night before (around midnight), and ended up getting 60-something marks.
MBA from IIT
His dream was to become a good manager and decided to attend IIM, but fell short and landed in IIT MBA. He’s not fond of programming, even though his background was in IT.
He spent 15 months to find a good coaching center like NIIT, Aptech…that will teach him programming.
“Mangers don’t write codes” was his usual response. He did certainly know how to print “Hello World”.
He’s like everyone else who came to this land of opportunity and freedom. I have asked him to write about his MBA experience in India and how his M.S. in finance had changed the perspective towards his life and education.
If you have any questions about MBA and M.S. in finance, job opportunities and courses,.. write a comment in this article and he will be glad to include the answers in his article.
But He needs your Help
The following is an email I received from him recently:
Need advice from you.
There was this beautiful sweater I bought from India, because the U.S. is so cold and I happily washed it in the machine today…
It brings tears in my eyes to tell you the size to which it has shrunk… (This was never in any basic IQ book I ever came across with in my life) and I spent 2,000 bucks to learn of this news.
And now I am 1 sweater down plus i have to get a new one…
If you have any knowledge about resuscitation, please mail me.
Thank you with a heart full of shrunken warmth.
If u can’t, then wait for woolen hankies for Christmas from me…
