SIESCOMS PG- 07-09
As my friends Anmol, Santosh and Vikram have put things in detail, i can only add on by sayin that life @ a B- School is both fun and replete with challenges... fun as in we management games n stuff.... challenges as in meetin project and assignment deadlines..
U interact with people of various kinds......In SIESCOMS, there is tremendous focus on intellectual development albeit, with a different approach that is thru games and interactive sessions.... Case studies are discussed from n number of angles and faculty go out of their way in ensuring that students get the concepts.... Video sessions is somethin that has been introduced recently... We had Mr Sumantra Ghoshal, the distinguished professor of London Business School giving precious insights on how managers need to plan and implement tasks. Can't wait to have more of those..... SIESCOMS TRULY ROCKS
SIESCOMS PGDBA 07- 09

Hey guys..I was with Rohit in SIESCOMS office..Thanx for d message dude... heaved a sigh of relief when i saw END OF JUNE.. i can now put in my papers.. but the laptop issue is extremely ridiculous.. WHU WUD ANYONE WITH A LAPTOP BUY ANOTHER ONE.. ITS COMPLETELY IRRATIONAL AND STUPID.GUESS THESE GUYS JUST WANT MONEY.. FEEL SAD FOR THOSE WHO HAVE ONE..
Now the news u've been waiting for...
THE COLLEGE WILL NOT BEGIN IN JUNE...IT WUD ONLY BE AFTER THE COMMENCEMENT OF 2ND YR STUDENTS CLASSES ARE REOPENED..

Also Laptop issue..
Sad but true..If u got a lappie it wudnt work out..

Plan to have first meet on
SUNDAY THE 22nd (in short tmrw..)
VENUE:MULUND-NIRMAL LIFESTYLES...outta MCDs
All who r in mumbai plz try making it...
List confirm, till now:-
Plz make the list bigger guys...
Seniors got exmas on 23rd..so prob;ly it wud be difficult..but it wud be gr8 if someone can make it...
But junior junta..plz rope in..
Lotta things to talk about!!strting with..
Damn..June opening of colleg...
gr8 job vikky. u cleared a lot of doubts.Girish here, and would like to share a flat as i stay @ Goregaon.. it would be difficult to travel to and fro... lets meet up asap and see the flats for ourselves.. But again.... the question is when
i wanted it closer to the coll. as u say we can try for a place a bit further, a station away from nerul to save on some money. But if we go a little further then we will have to incur additional expenditure on travelling which would offset any savings made in the flat rents. and additionally the time factor. so i would suggest we all stay together near coll.
Dudes, I have asked a couple of people as to the rentals of flats in and around Nerul, and the rates range from 2500 rs rent + 10 times the rent as the deposit ie 25000 for a small room with one room + kitchen that can accomodate 3 to 4 people, and rooms that are proper 1 bhk, which will cost 5000 + 50000 (rent/PM and Deposit). This also does not include the agent`s commission. There are other people like the landlords who will directly deal with us, but we will have to search for themhey guys, would like to meet the entire batch asap. Guess, Anmol was trying to get all of us together in the first week of May. lets have a consensus on the date pls......
However we can can also try to pin down the ex students who will be leaving this year, so they that they can introduce us to their landlords, so we do not have to go through agents. (ergo saving some money). If that does not work out there are hostels like Anmol has mentioned
So what I want to say is that before hunting for rooms, let us all decide who is ready to share flats and expenses. And since Nerul and Vashi are a bit costlier, would it be ok if we took up a room at a place a bit further, that is a station away from nerul. I have spoken to quite a few people who have said that they would like to meet the people who want to rent the place. So Please let me know when you can be in mumbai, so we can sit together and decide these things amongst us.
No re no updates on the Laps, all seniors are busy or away on vacation.
As to the philanthropist, he is no longer philanthropical, cause 2 of his tenants stole a lot of stuff from his house . Shheeesh I hate thieves
