What do i do? i'm so confused

I will be going for my CPL with FRTOL and RTR and ME/IR (everything included) in two months. That will cost me about 50,000 USD or 30 lakhs. The flying school is DGCA approved. I have just completed my high school with average grades. (185 hours SE, 15 hours ME, 10 hours Sim approx.)

I want to know what happens after CPL?

Do i apply to a university for a bachelors degree, with extra activity (NCC - National Cadet Corps airwing) which will provide me a stronger educational background with 60 hours or so in gliders as well.

Do I go for extra trainings such as MCC course or CRM workshop? Do i get a type rating for A320 or B737?

There could be possible money issues so the type rating is preferred the least for a start.

I was planning to go for a short term commission in the Air Force or Navy or Coast Guard to increase my flight hours after my graduation if i make it there in the first place.

Basically, how do i increase my flight hours and make myself eligible for airlines such as indigo or jet airways.

Would this be a possibility ?:

Jet Airways Launches Its Cadet Pilot Training Programme in Partnership With Training Leader CAE

If you have the option of getting a fixed wing pilot slot in your country's military, that's rarely an error career-wise.

Good luck either way.

I looked for the Indigo Cadet Training Program but the cost is way too much and i'm sure that Integrated training isn't what i'm looking for. I might get a slot in the military which is a low probability and will be difficult to get in, i'll give it a shot.

But i still didn't get the answer to my question. I'm going for Modular flight training and don't know what to do after CPL, university for degree or further experience.

Choose another career if things confuse you.

A bit late yes but, nevertheless, I offer my two cents. Don't jump into this gig without a clear vision of where you want to go/be and without a thorough risk/SWOT analysis of all potential scenarios.

Give priority to military, as you do it for free.
