I have an MBA. Unless you’re going to do a full time program at a top school, it’s not worth it. I certainly haven’t seen a ROI on my time and cost to earn it. Wish I had daytraded that money instead, if that lends any perspective. But there are people who become very successful, so there’s that too. Only do a graduate program if you’ll be one of the very successful.

Hi Fishes, i need some clarification.
I have resigned 2 months back due to some personal issues and revoked it before 20 days back.

TCS HR called me after a week to confirm the withdrawal of my resignation but i have asked 10 days time to confirm whether I'm withdrawing my resignation or not.

Now since my personal issues got tighten up i have finally decided to continue the resignation.

Will there be a problem since i have sent a mail on revoking and now again sent a mail on not withdrawin?
