@me.contact : You'll need to pay the fee term-wise. When you register for each term (3 months apart) you will need to get the draft. The amount will become known to you in the previous term. If you're taking a loan from a campus bank (Punjab National Bank etc), then you need not worry as they will keep your draft ready on the day you need it, without your informing them.
Batch of 2008, IIML
New At L? Go here: www.iiml.org.in - Helpline for IIML Class of 2010
i read something abt lateral placements...
is it the same as summer internship???:
and i also read abt 12 month work-ex for lateral placements....
what abt freshers? do they get lateral placements?
seniors... what abt the shops at the plaza....
do we get all comp related things on campus at reasonable prices?? like speakers... external hard disks... headphones... DVD writers.... etc etc....
and what do u guys do for train ticket reservations??... use IRCTC online... or go to railway station... or do we have a city reservation office nearby ???
@vivek You'll need formal clothes definitely, but no need to bring too many of those -- 2-3 good formal shirts, a couple of formal trousers, and optionally a business suit- keep it black though. Suits wont really be required until ur 2nd term (summer placements) although you may like to play it safe and bring one. Formal shirt+trousers for presentations are not required by most profs, though students like to wear them, and its a good idea to, anyway. Some profs may make it compulsory tho.
@subodh, kushal has answered most of ur queries i guess, but still... 1. No cafeteria in hostels, theres only one large common mess on campus which has some very reasonable timings, extending much after midnight(called night mess in that case), and a canteen called fauji (which is like a 24 hr restaurant, and yes, they deliver to your room, I order 2 paranthas and an orange juice at 2 am regularly) Otherwise a couple of external restaurants also deliver to campus Dominos Pizza, and Indian restaurant called southern spice etc etc 2. Very good question- sadly, L seems to like the idea of informal specializations, too much to say on that front on an online forum, PM for more info or wait till u get to campus. 3. Cases, loads of them. Otherwise, some theory, textbook chapters, research papers, powerpoint slides, video clips, online material, practice assignments, material at profs websites etc etc - depends on ur prof, really. 4. Not sure, ask your bank when they send you the brochure (both SBI and PNB will send one to you) The batch as a whole will decide the model, and hence will be a middle-end one, with all basics, but no frills like grafix cards. Not much choice there, hence. Will cost between 50 and 60k, if history is anything to go by
Network Connectivity Details: CDMA: As Niranjan said, reliance works. Tata works, but not all that well, low signal in most spots. GSM: Airtel is the most popular and offers really cheap local CUG calling within the IIML community, for postpaid connections. Makes sense to get this, as most people in our batch have airtel. Prepaid is also made cheap with some good monthly offers. Get the details from their counter which they'll set up for you when you arrive. Hutch works as well, and some people do have it on campus, but far fewer than airtel. Other networks, either do not exist or I'm not sure as the numbers arent significant. Cheers, Pcity
hi senoirs and fellowmates who will be joining L....
for 2 days i was out of station so could not able to post my questions....
1) i want to avail the needy scholarship given to SC/ST students....my father income is below 1 lakh....what are all the things i need to have to apply for that scholrship....income certificate given by MRO authorities will be ok??. will it be given to selected students(this is what i can infer from IIML website). if so, what is the criteria for that?
2) any other sources of funding like SC/ST scholadship and merit scholarship from some companies?? what is the criteria for those scholarships? i read from the IIML site that 1500 rs will be given to SC/ST students.
3) i am working in CTS. one of the IIML alumni is wokring here. i talked to him. he said bike will not be useful in the campus. there will be a shuttle service running from college to city. is that true??
4) what is the exact fees for this year?? figures in IIML website are older ones?? i think they hiked to 2 lakhs..
5) once we pay the first installment, will they send the bank loan application?? IIML alumni said PNB will give 5000 per month for personal expenses..that is gud news...:)
thankyou in advance...
can u throw a little more light on this bidding process.
and what is the max. limit of students who can opt for a particular specialization and approx. what % dont get specialization of their choice
do prepare that answer, but do bear in mind the why MBA question is asked less and less in IIM PIs as the years go by... perhaps the profs are tired of hearing the same old answers :)
Last year, hardly any ppl were asked that in IIM interviews. But of course, dont take the chance, do prepare, but dont oversend time on it.
iimL class of 08
@ I will ... hey, good luck :)
I had the amazingly low %ile of 98.67 last year. For a no wrkex/general that was really low by last years standards(not this year , i know,this year lower %iles are getting calls) and even after a good GDPI thought I had no chance. It is one of the lowest fresher/gen percentiles on campus. But i made it in their initial list itself. So u never know. Have faith and work hard till the interview
