i have done with bhavans , CV kilpauk ,SBOA and Don bosco school of Excellence....The CV Kilpauk interaction was very short. It lasted for just 2 minutes. We went to SbOA last Friday. It took an hour. As mentioned by Elve our mobile phones were not allowed inside the principal office. She asked us that they were running a trust and do we wish to donate anything.. Obviously it was an indirect question for donation. We said "yes".. Next question was how much??? We really did'nt knw how much to quote. So we said how much does the school usually ask??. She said "We do not demand any particular amount.. Its all ur wish".. So we quoted 70000/-. She noted down. And thats all. But we really liked the school.. good infrastructure, sports activities and all..
At Don bosco school of Excellence they are asking 2 cheques. One for 80000/- for annual fees and 2nd cheque for a minimum of 100000/- as donation. Konjam kooda vekkame illama thay are asking.
When bhavan's will update the result? any idea?
Please don't quote donation openly or it will become like a trend setter!.. as if it is the norm of the day.
Good school will not demand huge sum as donation! I am damn firm about this and convinced!
I came to know some of the parents who are residing far away from the schools are willing to pay huge / hefty some as donation and get the seat, there are so many middleman who are making so much money, many of the parents getting cheated by these middleman or agents.
I know few of the people paying Rs.1.7lak to get the seat through middleman, and 2 of them were cheated for 2 different schools!.
Please don't get carried away or cheated by middlemen or agents for getting the seat, if you satisfy the criteria for the school, you will get the seat, if not you try in next school!.
Yes perfect Sivasankaran !!!
Bhavans results will be announced on 19 March 2014.
Does anyone have any idea about the fees structure @ Chinmaya, MVM , bhavans and SBOA ??
Please don't take it personally, I did not say anything personally against anyone. I just shared my thoughts/feelings/anguish at people who have so much money and muscle power some how try to get seat, nothing personal against you or anyone. Please forgive me if I hurt you in anyway. I am really happy that you are sharing your experience, its really good thing, for others to read, say next year when parents like us search for information.
I am really happy about for being honest and open in sharing your experience.
It's ok Shiva, no regrets. I just wanted to ensure the discussions are fruitful and don't limit us and don't let us still live in imaginations.
@Everyone - I have got a confirmation from Sindhi offering a seat, they asked to pay 55k by tomorrow! so now I am in a soup situation.
However, I will be paying the fees, as I don't seem to have a choice at the moment and I have distance advantage in Sindhi, but will be waiting for other results still.
