Don’t eulogize tier-3 colleges.
Fact: “Success rate is very-low there”.
Whether the course is engineering, management or any other professional course, the fact is, top colleges offer better opportunities.
Many newspapers & folks eulogize successful people coming out from tier-3 colleges (nothing bad about it as it inspires the majority of the students in tier-3 colleges to work-hard & realise their dreams).
The point to be noted here is that “those people are self-made” (negligible role of the college in their success).
Without an exception, they have to go through series of failures. Reasons:
■ No relevant connections
■ No industry exposure
■ No special treatment (“tag” works at many places)
■ Poor faculty & infrastructure at majority of the tier-3 colleges
■ No proper guidance
The another thing to be taken into account is that “no culture of dream”. Folks are very much comfortable with the idea of “just a job” & “just a modest life”.
Life is hard & the only way to realise your dreams is extreme hard-work. May be no other way!
P.S. The only good thing about studying at tier-3 college is that “society expects less from you” & you have not very much to lose & hence you can take adequate risk.
