@da: Why do you think that only you are trying to help students and others are not? I didn't mention anything against or for any college. Only thing I mentioned is location is important. I didnt see any post from anybody which mentioned location is more important than education. But let us call a spade a spade. According to me what matters the most is student experience and it is a mixture of everything; lectures, extra-curricular activities, competitions, networking and a lot more. On all these fronts location helps you. Whether it is getting good faculty, people from industry, extra-curricular activities, competitions.. everywhere location gives you an upper-hand. But there are schools like IIM A & XLRI which can provide you these irrespective of their location. But when you compare schools of similar stature location should be an good parameter to take a decision. Also n years down, the school name should be something you can leverage-so the management philosophy is also important. All the best. you are free to reject my opinion but this is what I feel is right.

@devilishangel: Dude, I guess you should reduce your number of posts because with increasing number their quality is decreasing. Average capability index in any of the top15 b-schools in India is almost the same. But for the best companies what matters more is brand index. So if the brand is comparable then any company will prefer recruiting from a near by campus. Placements are not driven by ego as much as you think. They are more practical. On an average a B-school in Mumbai will find it much more easier to have quality industry interaction. Relationships established by industry interaction will come next only to alumni network in enabling placements. Also to bring more clarity in some of your points good faculty member is not one who teaches very well but one who work to grow the student & faculty experience at school with an entrepreneurial spirit. So your 10th, 11th, 12th & 17th points are direct outcome of 1 & 2 points and is much more relevant.

@Devilishangel: I agree with most of your opinions expressed here but when it comes to location I believe you are driven by some hidden love for something than reason. Location may not matter for IIM A (being among the very best) or XLRI (hr alumni) but it does matter for other b-schools. Reasons: In a city like Mumbai opportunities for a diligent student is atleast 10 times more than what he could get in a non-metro location. True that it may not be doing certification & projects also doesn't that much value to the CV. But exposure & networking through established business networks, international conferences, training programs is what comes handy in shifting jobs, opening opportunities etc. Placements at campus is of at max 30% significance in your career. Networking & exposure is much more important. Placement & student experience at KJ Somaiya/Wellingkar is much better than many of its counterparts (who started in the same period with similar resources) Companies do look for saving costs while recruiting esp in Knowledge driven industry because in addition to the actual cost there is an opportunity cost of expensive employee hours. There are other reasons also. But this is enough for now.

@Abaxial: None of Indian Management degrees get a lot of recognition outside India. The people who have been successful in Silicon Valleys & other places are recognized as IITians. If you want to test this put up a poll in any facebook group where majority of members are westerners. India's top management schools have produced only a few thousands till now & most of them have proved themselves only in India. And most of the alumni of top management schools have one of the IITs as their alma mater. Their love for their Btec school is equal if not more than for their management school. So the argument of mba from technical institute doesn't stand. Sloan, Stanford, Nanyang.....there are so many examples

@Shakthi: "not so great alumni network". You are saying that IITB doesn't have a good alumni network. Do you realize that you are talking about the institute with the biggest and most successful alumni in the country. SOM has the same access to the network as any other department in IIT. @Sublime:"brand name of iitb is simply nonexistent". Do you even know that IIT Bombay is among the biggest Indian brands across the globe. No B-school can even come near that. When you face the world, you introduce yourself as an alumni of IIT Bombay, the you will realize the worth of it. "Moreover doing ur MBA from a technical college is not half as useful" Regarding doing MBA from a technical institute, pls refer the any global top B-school rankings..Many of the top schools like MIT Sloan, Stanford Business School,are MBAs offered by technical institutes.....There are certain advantages which you have when you are a part of a big & established institute..

@Shreyans: Pls explain some things: 1. Why IIT B is not an institute people should look for? Pls tell us which are the institutes one should look for & on what criteria. 2. How much do you know about how avg salary is calculated across colleges and what is the source of your data? How calculation of IIT B's average salary is different from any other B-school? 3. Which institute are you a part of or if you are an aspirant you are looking forward to joining? 4. What makes you think that people at SOM are so desperate to make people join the college? Do you have any data/reasoning to support your statement that seats will not be filled in SOM this year.
Has XLRI put up any additional waitlist for BM? Pls let me know
What all documents needed to be produced at the time of taking admission? Is paying fee the formal admission or we have to produce documents only during registration done at the beginning of classes?
Dear Seniors,
How much time is given for paying their fees for those candidates who get in after each waitlist movement?
