I am happy to see the positive attitude... And also the quest for learning!!!!!
One Question: How many of don't want a placement n only decent education??? thr might not b e1 10%... guys, my point is that placements r extremely imp... this is d bottom line!!!!!
As far as d education is concerned... let me assure u that there will b many many fake promises.
I will give some examples from d patriots batch:
--> GL management backtracked on the number of courses promised initially. there were 4 courses totally cancelled without any refunds!!!!! n mind u, they charge 10000 for each extra course u take, other than ur electives.
--> the entire patriots batch could not get even a single software(be it SAS or SPSS) though 5000 bucks wr charged for the same. Again thr r no refunds!!!!!
--> there is no clear evaluation system and there is no transparency in ur grades!!!!
also, some other startling facts about the food and infrastructure:
-->though the catering is done by sodexo, the food is intolerable. d lunch will b d only edible meal.
-->the food is neither north indian nor south indian. its a terrible mix of both!!!
--> since the admin consists of many TAMIL BRAHMINS, there will only b veg food served in d campus!!!!
--> u will live near the coast and there will be torrential rains for 3-4 months, this is d time u will regret coming to GL cuz i have heard that the entire so called green campus floods during rains.
--> most of the rooms are flooded with water and there will always b danger of electric shocks.
--> u will not e1 b able to walk to classes unless u have a boat with u.
THESE ARE ONLY A VERY FEW OF THE THINGS I HAVE HEARD ABOUT GREAT LAKES WHICH MADE ME CHANGE MY DECISION. I HAD AN ADMIT BUT I CAN'T PUT SO MUCH AT STAKE TO GO TO GREAT LAKES.
Dude!!! ur post is thoroughly entertaining!! made me tide over the disappointment due to CSK's defeat today.
Mumbai has torrential rains too, and the city does get flooded as well. have u heard of one person vacating the city because of rains??? Gimme a break!!! We are in India mate, not in Singapore!! GL is built in the outskirts of Chennai, we can't expect the drainage to be on par with that in the city.
God help u if u pay so much of importance to food. I dont know of many hostels that provide food that students like. If u know of any such place, please join that college and spare us the trouble.
Please dont spoil the sanctity of the forum by bringing in caste (u referred to TAMIL BRAHMINS) here. no votebank politics please!! And FYI, there is a restaurant right outside the college that serves non-veg food.
One thing i do not understand. U clearly dont intend to join GL. Y would u spend ur time for something that u r not even remotely interested in?
