The Reliance Dhirubhai Fellowship Stanford Vs SOIL Vs BTG ScholashipAre you bugged by the B-school admission fees?, do you feel you can't afford that much? Is this iffy feeling, making you to give up your dream school?. Are you giving up your dream chase?. Don't do that. Believe in yourself. More above listen to your heart. Heart never lie. It always shows true path. So cling to your dream because Life is full of surprises and gifts to be embraced.
Looking @ my life so far. I can't even think of paying normal B-schools admission fees. However I strongly believe in
““When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.””

Accidentally, I came across School of Inspired Leadership. Founded by and backing with such leading Industry leaders. It aims to build competent, compassionate and inspiring leaders. After going through their SOIL website and interacting with current students and faculties. I am so much happy to see a B-school which weighs more on leadership than management. As far as I know, especially in India, our B-school stresses more on management than bringing out the innate skills of a leader. What I like about SOIL is
- Individual Learning Plan ( ILP ) & Social Innovation Project (SIP).
- Close ties between students and faculty.
- Unique Caliper and TAP admission Process.
Still SOIL has a long way to go. However I feel. It's gonna be best B-school in coming days provided. If it keep up the continuous improvement as its doing now. After going through their admission process. Here in the end. I am selected into SOIL Business Leadership Program 2010-2011 batch. Though I can't afford whole admission fee and many private and nationalized banks are not entertaining for education loan ( I can understand their fear because firstly it's new B-school, secondly its not recognized by AICTE. However As far as I know, none one year Executive PGP program recognized by AICTE). As we all know, it's hard to convince Indian Government Servants as their mindset set only on AICTE. They don't even bother about the school's vision and placement stats.
With their rejection for education loan, now I am struggling to fund my admission fee. When we have storm clouds of trouble and doubt in our lives, our faith in God and faith in ourselves will help us find our way. After discussing this Issue with Current Students. I found a ray of hope. I came to know that SOIL provides Need Based Scholarship to Financially weak background students who can't afford their admission fees. So now, I have applied for the scholarship as I belong to Need Based Student group. Eager to see how future will unfold now onwards.
In the mean time, I am on the verge of completing my beatthegmat scholarship essays. And I will submit before this month end. And Luckily, I found the The Reliance Dhirubhai Fellowship for Stanford MBA program. Which covers all your admission and living fees. After seeing this my soul say hooray :). I am applying for this scholarship now. .
