  11. The statement focus is on studying the major cities in order to understand the important characteristics of society. Society is group of people which are different from each other in so many aspects. So to understand the most important characteristics of society we need to study people from different backgrounds,religions,having different beliefs,customs etc. The most important characteristics of a society are social relationship between people living in it, their inter-dependency,their liking ,differences etc. Major cities have so many people living in it, came from corner of the country. So by studying major cities it is possible to understand characteristics of society up-to some extent. We have to study the cities like New York,Washington to understand the characteristics of United States. Similarly to understand the culture of India, we need to study the major cities in it like Mumbai,Delhi, Bangalore etc. For example Mumbai is the economical capital of India. It has people from various states of India living in it. It has a developed IT sector, World of Bollywood, So many Business Tycoons and Bombay Stock Exchange residing. On other hand it has a big slum area. Which represents a very big economical difference between two classes of society. People of so many religions are living in Mumbai, so the term "Unity in Diversity" can be understood by studying Mumbai. However major cities have impact of foreign culture on it as impact of globalization. Mahatma Gandhi Said "India is a Agricultural Nation".India has a very prosperous and great cultural history. But by looking towards Major cities like Mumbai, Delhi we may found this statement false.So to get complete understanding of the this culture, its beliefs we have to study small cities,their living style. To understand the cultural enrichment of India we have to study the Ajanta-Velora Caves,Lofty Of Sahyadri,Highness of Himalaya,Beauty Of Kashmir etc.We have to study the common people living there.Because people in small cities are more adherent to their religious belief, their customs,their festivals. People major cities are more inclined towards modernization. They are profit-seeking,development oriented. So to get the understanding of most important characteristics of society, one have to study major cities and in together to that the small cities and rural area.
  12. Hi there,:drunk::drunk: I am from India, a student as well as an entrepreneur in gamification industry. I am a MBA (PGDM) in HR and marketing and planning to re-apply for a Ph.D in management after withdrawing from Ph.D program in India. I plan to take GRE+ TOEFL and apply for fall 2014 admissions in the top 10 management institutes/universities. Regards, Achint :proud::proud:
  13. Hey everyone, Currently I am pursuing my PGDM ( equivalent to MBA ) from IIMA ( one of the best B school in India). I did my undergrad from IIT Kharagpur in Engineering. I am intersted in doing a Phd in finance after completing my MBA but I am very unsure about my chances of getting into a good program. If any of you guys can throw some light about my chances in top 10,20 or 50 B school, it would be a great help. Profile in Brief: B. Tech & M. Tech ECE IIT Kharagpur 6.7/10 ( I know it's very poor, so disappointed with myself :( did not take acads seriously at all ) MBA from IIMA 3.6/4.33 ( almost in top 5 in a batch of 400 ) I have also passed all level of CFA examinations. I took GRE 2 years back and scored 1450 ( Q 800, V 640 , AWA 3.5 ), but I can take it again and would certainly improve AWA and verbal score. Have some very good ranking in all India examinations such as IIT-JEE ( Screening 17/200,000) , CAT 99.96% etc... ) I want to know if a good GPA in an MBA program can make up for messed up undergrad GPA ? If your answer is " NO, You can not get into a good program. Is there any remedy available for me? I am willing to apply after 2,3 years. But in the meantime I will be working and hence won't be able to take any full time position in research etc. Is there any way I can improve my chances while working full time ? Thanks in advance....
  14. :afro: Hi there! (A) I am planning to join PhD in Pol Science and looking for a good univ with qualitative and inter-disciplinary stress. My PhD topic will be focused on 2-3 localities in India. It will broadly cover issues of political representation and citizenship issues among a religious minority group. So could you please suggest good universities for me to go to?? It'll be really great help! (B) Also please evaluate my profile assuming I will get average GRE & TOEFL (say not enough for top 10 but enough for top 10-40) and suggest how to cover my weak points. 1) I have done my BA (Hons.) Social Work and MA in Social Work from the best universities in India with 67% and 63% marks respectively (Don't know what GPA those will be!). 2) I have also published in one of the most important journals of India (though not a peer reviewed journal), have a chapter in a Routledge Book and co-authored a book with a prof from my MA univ (local publisher). All my Publications are related to my PhD interest. 3) I also have 2.5 years of RA exp related to my PhD interest. 4) My letter of recommendation will be: 2 from Social Work (from the best social work institute here) and 1 from my employer-supervisor who is in the top Govt. body for policy making currently with Indian govt. I can vouch for all the letter of recommendation to be personal and intense. 5) My SOP will, am sure, reflect my commitment and relevance for my PhD interest. Though linking it with faculty interests might be difficult. © Importantly, How is the UMich Joint PhD in Social Work and Pol Sc, Michigan State Univ's Pol science and Univ of Chicago...Does anyone knows of their drawbacks or strengths/uniqueness?? Thanks a ton!
  15. Hey, I am from India and my profile is as below: Undergrad: B.Tech - Computer Engineering - CGPA of 9.05/10 (As per Columbia Univ conversion it comes to around 3.97) Grad: Post Grad Program in Management from IIM Shillong (A top 15 B School in India) - CGPA of 8.05/10 (As per Columbia Conversion it is around 3.68/4) (Majority of electives I had taken were of Finance) I had a research paper published during my undergrad, but no research work published later. I have negligible work experience. GRE: 169 Q, 163 V TOEFL: 114 I understand it is extremely difficult to get into a top-20 PhD program in US, so can you please tell me where I can apply, as in which Universities I have a fair chance. I am applying for MS-Financial Engg program at Columbia, CMU, NYU, UCB. Would it improve my chances of getting into a better PhD program if I finish my MS-FE from a good university? Thanks in advance!
  16. I am an engineering student( finished 4 semesters of Bachelors in Engineering - comp. sci.) from India. Have great grades and have done 3 research internships with some great organisations in my field of bachelors( computer sci.). I have also published 2 papers in image processing. I have had interest in Behavioral economics but don't know what to do. I want to do a direct PhD through GRE. I have had most of the math courses required but not real analysis. I am trying to study some basic economics courses, all self taught. I am not so financially sound so would also be trying hard for some kind of financial assistance. But I cant get very strong LORs. I can although get two from IISC(indian institute of science - premier research institue in india ) grads, one of whom is very famous in machine learning and economic modelling domain and is a res. prof. at Oklahoma uni.. Other is a research professor at IISc. I will be going to write GRE in my 4th year and want some guidance on how to deal with this situation. Is it possible for me to get admission in any of the top 15 places for beh. eco.. if I do some more internships in Economics related fields? My undergrad gpa so far is 3.88/4. Suggestions needed.
  17. Hi Everyone, I wish to be applying for fall 2012 in the US for Economics Ph.D. I have been doing my best to contact indians at universities I may apply to with questions on my profile and addmissions process. The hit rate has not been too impressive hope this forum helps in getting better repsonses. It would be of immense help if Indian applicants who got admitted in US econ phd programs since 2008 could share their profiles and results. If the responses are good it would really encourage me to share my profile to get your valuable comments on it and get any other assitance from the Indians who made it!That could be in the next post :D

  20. Hey there amigos. I'm an Indian graduate in Economics deep into development and political economy, a hence considering an RA position with J-PAL for next year (completing the application by Jan 2011). I can't help but notice that no BA student of an Indian university has been selected so far, even if the evaluations are in India. At best there are Indian RAs accepted but only after they complete a Masters Degree in the US or UK. Strange, because the BA degrees from a lot of US/Uk institutions seems to suffice for RA positions- I know this from the J-PAL website. Nevertheless, I'll do whatever it takes to be deserving and ready in the next 5 months. I'd be really grateful if you could have a look at my background and evaluate my chances of being taken in::) Academics:grad: Degree: BA Economics (3 years, not 4 like in the States) Institution: St. Xavier's College, Mumbai University. The college is among the top 3 for arts in the country but the University itself doesn't have much to boast about in its current state. GPA: About 3.8. Don't know how this corresponds exactly to the Indian system. Did about 16 projects, most of them As GRE: Exam in December, aiming at 1580+, 6 in AWA Undergrad Minors- Political Science and Eng Lit (and hence limited Quantitative content- a year-long paper each in Maths for Economics and Econometrics) Graduate Coursework 2 Distance Diplomas, both concluding by June next year: 1) Mathematics & Statistics (LSE) 2) Population studies (IIPS- this institution conducts most of India's official demographic surveys) Also, short courses on Design of Experiments and ANOVA; Survey Design and Analysis of Data of Complex Samples; upcoming courses on Generalized Linear Models, Bayesian Statistics and Multivariate Analysis (http://www.statistics.com)- all with the necessary computing skills. Skills Programming skills Currently studying Stata(not part of curriculum in India, Advanced Netcourse certificate by Mid Jan) Research Experience: a) 2 months with the Reserve Bank of India (India's Central bank) after clearing a national level exam where only 50 students were selected b) Planning to evaluate BRAC's Targeting the Ultra-Poor programme in January Other Strengths: Linguistic: I speak 8 languages, including French and Spanish which feature in RA job requirements Extensive experience in partnering NGOs- AIESEC, Rang De (Microfinance group in India) I don't want to unload the entire La Vida Loca on you- so let's stop here. If anyone could appraise my chances or inform me on possible reasons why non-US/UK universities have not been preferred so far, I think I'd be indebted to you for life!:p Looking forward to meeting some of you Cheers Abhishek
  21. Are there any candidates here targeting the Fellow Programme in Management (FPM) (equi to a PhD) from the IIMs in India? I am looking for people to discuss few aspects of the applications process, entrance exams (as GMAT is not the only test for these courses) and some IIM specific details. Of course, others with any useful info can surely chip-in.
