There is a doctoral scholars program that exists to help find people with actual experience to fill the need for academia, but there’s looks for three years (https://www.adsphd.org/apply). I guess that is what they considered the sweet spot, but doesn’t mean there is a right answer. You’ll need a recent GMAT/GRE score (within 5 years) and letters of recommendation - academic recommendations preferred, but professional also accepted. I’m considering this as well and have done a bit of research but am a bit more removed from school and therefore longer time since any interaction with past professors

Hi Fishes,

My sister got selected in Accenture as a campus Recruit for a developer role. But she is interested in financial role and her profile is in interview stage for a finance role. If she declines this offer means whether the profile in the interview stage will considered or not. My friends said if we reject the offer we will not be considered for next one year. Is that true. Kindly share your views.

Dear Microsoft Fishes,

Attended interview by May month and in-between process has been kept on hold for fiscal year things..

Now HR said that offer is due anytime once approval is provided. Still I'm waiting for approval.

Hr also said, there will be bgv once I get the offer and it takes 3 weeks..

Any idea guys... once we get offer we can trust ms right ? Because it's getting delayed and my old offers from Indian mncs will get expired.

Please put some ideas friends.
