Eyeing some of the academic fellowships at the end of the 1st year. Can alum shed some light on difficulty to get a high GPA? Does Flex core vs. Fixed core matter?

Being at the very top for fellowships requires both effort and luck (E.g., doing extra in your randomly assigned group project). I personally wouldn't say it's worth it - taking on part time work would be more common. After preterm and MGMT 610, you'll have a sense of whether it's even something you want to go for!

I am an SAP Basis guy and am thinking of learning ABAP also side by side. Cause I think Basis is dying.

Hey fishes,

I currently work on SAP ABAP, 2.5YoE
I am a bit skeptical about the future growth and scope.

Based on my research i see most ABAPers with 5-7 YoE being paid around 12-17 lpa. (This is based on data from people i talked to in similar roles).

I'm a bit confused whether ABAP would be a good career option or should i try switching to Java Spring or Big data.

What are your views about ABAP opportunities compared to other tech stacks.
