#2 - Analyze the ROI for your MBA from a particular college
Do further self research about college considering below factors:
- College's Reputation and Ranking
- Placement & Average Salary
- College Fee's
Considering all above factors analyze ROI for you going for MBA from this college. Below example would help you in understanding your situation:

Example- 1 - Candidate X is working in IT company for last one year with salary of 3.5 Lacs P.A. He is a general candidate with CAT percentile of 83. Should he join for MBA?
Answer: You shouldn't, unless you are very desperate for doing MBA from any college, you shouldn't join . Reasons:
You would invest more than 8 lac rupees in doing MBA from an average college and when you pass out most likely you may get a salary of 5.5 Lacs P.A. ROI is very less.

Example- 2 - Candidate Y is 2014 pass out and he doesn't has a job. He is a general candidate with CAT percentile of 87. Should he join for MBA ?
Answer: Unless you are very confident of getting better percentile next year you shouldn't drop a year. You can check this by analyzing your level of expertise in Maths & Verbal in your 10th & 12th marks or introspect yourself.
Reasons:

Dropping a year without working is not advisable unless your percentile is going to improve to 97+ next year. If you are financially stable you should go ahead with MBA this year itself. If you have any possibility of getting a job then you can drop a year, prepare well in parallel with work and attempt CAT again next year along with work exp.

  11. Hi Anindita,

    It all depends on how settled you are in your current job, how much you are getting paid for and how desperate you are for doing MBA.

    At 84 percentile and if you belong to general category you would not be getting any of the top 20 colleges. Below example which is mentioned in this page pretty much sums up your situation and it also answers your query:

    Example- 1 - Candidate X is working in IT company for last one year with salary of 3.5 Lacs P.A. He is a general candidate with CAT percentile of 83. Should he join for MBA?
    Answer: You shouldn't, unless you are very desperate for doing MBA from any college, you shouldn't join . Reasons:
    You would invest more than 8 lac rupees in doing MBA from an average college and when you pass out most likely you may get a salary of 5.5 Lacs P.A. ROI is very less.
