Introducing new courses, updating the existing ones and employing new 'out-of-classroom' methods in learning are some of the maneuvers that Indian b-schools are adopting to stay relevant and competitive. As a result, stu

@Devilishangel: With regards to 'immersion programs' and their ilk, as someone who's been there, done are spot on. Too little and perhaps too late in life?

hello puys. 2day suddenly i recd a letter from xl wh says dat i hav been waitlistd 38. at d time of results i got a regret. now m in a dillemma wat to do. as i hav iiml also. pls can ny1 help me wh is better xl or iiml?


I beg to differ with some of the other views posted here. Unless you are keen on HR, I'd say go for IIM L. Both colleges are probably on a par, but the IIM brand is the IIM brand after all. I or K, I'd put XL over them...but between L and XL...go for L I'd say.

If you are even remotely interested in HR (i.e if your waitlist is in HR) then XL should be a no brainer.

Cheers and Good Luck!
Hey puys.. My first post on PG (and sorry I'm asking for help straight away)..

First of all, Congratulations to all fellow XL converts and best wishes to the waitlisters.

I am in the final year of my graduation, and received my BM selection letter today.It says that we have to reach campus on the 13th june, followed by registration on the 15th and preparatory programme from the 16th onwards. But due to the DU exams getting postponed, my exams now get over on the 16th june.

Is it possible for me to come and register on the 17th, or somebody else registering on my behalf on the 15th.
Seniors and fellows, please help.

Hey...firstly congratulations and don't worry

This happened last year as well with some people from WB Univ and some from BITS Pilani as well. One of them should answer your query in a few days...

Obviously if your exams are still ongoing, you can't be there, so relax. Call up the office next week and explain the issue. I'm guessing you won't be alone either. The prep course is quite exhausting, but you should be able to catch up with what happened in the first few days by the time the main course starts.

Banish all worries for now! It is the time for you to be:drinking::drinking::drinking:

Not a laptop query per se but still...

I brought a DELL inspiron 15 last week with a 60 days MS office trial version. problem is you need to activate it...and i can't figure out how to do this. can't find the 25 digit key they ask for anywhere either..

dell owners can you tell me how to go about this?

Finally a thread with smarks all around! really nice to see posts by sidd16...tu ekdum mere jaisa hai!:drinking:
Would love to be able to carry on intelligent discussions on pro-wrestling. though i'm not the obssesive follower i was 3 years ago...still am a big fan and keep in myself up to date with the going-ons in the industry!

okay, question for all the smarks. Which website do you use to keep abreast of backstage gossip and off the TV news? i've followed for a long time., were fave haunts once upon a time as well.
other suggestions for places where you get good unbiased articles/show recaps etc?

I suggest you go for the 2 year complete warranty at the very least. Its a pretty expensive model you're going for, so half life is probably want to use it for 2 to 3 years at the very least. and from what i've seen....2 year warranty is not as expensive as the 3 yr one(relatively of course)
if u extend the warranty later, dell chaddi utaarte hai....they're verrry expensive.
maybe a pessemistic view...but better safe than sorry.

If I buy a dell inspiron without a graphics processor(only the onboard 64mb one i.e.) is it possible to get it added on later? if so how much will it cost?

and apart from gaming, where else are you likely to suffer without a dedicated graphics card?

really confused between these two:
The Dell Online Store: Build Your System
The Dell Online Store: Build Your System

whether to go for the extra RAM and HDD or the graphics processor?

any suggestions guys?
