Iam not posting here as a Mod or an IIMCian..Iam gonna write here as any normal user..
First of all, this whole debate of A/C or C/A..is unnecessary...When you are an aspirant, you develop an imagine of an institute based on media reports/friends/seniors/pg relationships..
You as an individual dont know, what suits you the best..I mean I have seen people dropping either of the institute for the other.
But once you join an institute, you start loving that place, becoz finally this is where, you are going to graduate from..Every institute is the "bestest" (including non IIMs) from a student's point of view.
Then why this thread on A or C....If I have right to feel proud as an IIMCian, the same holds true for my friends in others IIMs/Non IIMs as well..
Lets stop debating on this, as this is not going to leave some good feel to many of us (more than friends, we will be making enemies) & in the whole process, we will be bitching our own IIM fraternity & misguiding our to be juniors..
To everyone: Every institute has its own merits/demerits & you can know that, only if you are a part of that Institute, so please dont get carried away by what you read...
proud to be an IIM grad :)
I beg to disagree on one count. While I'm not in favour of ppl bashing other institutes and I think there is a much more emphasis on placement figures and numbers here than necessary, but still, I feel a thread like this would help ppl choose between institutes when the time comes to make such a decision. Like you said, "You as an individual dont know, what suits you the best". Which is why one has to find out what suits him the best and not to get carried away by others' opinions or popular impressions. A thread like this would give more insight to a newcomer and help him make a choice.
@all: Find out more about institutions by reading up or talking to seniors and do know what you're getting into.
