@Hell0_w0rld  I one word, Yes I was quite satisfied with the two yrs of my life that I spent at VGSOM. 22 states were represented in our class. The peer learning was awesome. The hostel was decent. The faculty is highly qualified (some really good ones have retired or left VGSOM in the last yr or so) but I am sure new faculty will join soon. The regular guest lectures gave a very good corporate interface as well. Above all, the 2100 acre IIT kgp campus will surely be an experience of a lifetime.
This yr's summer placements has been exceptional. Please go through the report in VGOSM website. You will find a few very big names.

@Hell0_w0rld  See, in VGSOM or even in IIMs, for that matter, no specialization is imposed on you. You will study the same subjects in 1st yr and select the subjects of your choice in 2nd yr (this is the same for all PGDM courses in IIMs and MBA courses in IITs). SO you will have ample time to decide on your specialization. I will advice you to go with your forte rather than VGSOM's forte
As for the second question, NO.. freshers are not at a disadvantage. There will be a lot of profiles on offer which will be suitable for freshers. The ratio is generally 4:1.

Mostly, exp candidates will be in demand for consulting and ops profiles. Marketing and analytics profiles (which are a big hit these days) will be open to all.

I left IMT G (that time they did not offer specialization right away) in 2011 for VGSOM. The main reasons behind my decision were: better ROI, smaller batch size and better campus If you guys think on the similar lines, then choose VGSOM.
