Is this joke or what?..Who is LBSIM to decide which are prominent ones and which are not?..In other way you are yourself saying that LBSIM has called non prominent recruiters..and placed 30-50 students in non prominent companies which you cant even mention in placement report..so why did you even call them?..you have mentioned number of companies,which didnt even pick up a single candidate like NSE..so why this biasedness?..

and stop telling me which language to use and what not to use?..If you guys can hide facts,then i can use any language i want..and you are not the institute,you are just sort of a employee working for LBSIM..so shed this arrogant behavior and be humble..you must have taken a marketing course ..always remember "Customer is the  king and he is always right"..If Toyota can call back 10 lakhs cars from USA market over minor defects and aplogise for it..then WTF you think you are??

@lakshay khatri bro m an aspirant just as u and i must tell u that no college gives the full list of recruiters coming to th campus u may check the reports of tapmi and fore.There is no need to state that lbsim is hiding something infact they have listed the most number of companies which visited the campus.So just relax and have faith on the institute u r about to join

I got calls from the new IIM's and my results are yet to come. currently i m working in IT and have 22 months of work ex. off late my work is getting really hectic and i work for almost 12 hrs everyday. I am planning to quit for my job and prepare for cat 2015. is this a bad move ? if so wat are the problems that i would face other than me screwing up cat ? or should i go for the last 6 IIM's if at all i get one ?  my profile Xth - 83 , XIIth - 91 , B.E - 7.1 , work ex - 22 months as of now , not much in extra curricular , NC-OBC.

Dont quit the job.. CAT is a big gamble.. you might even end up scoring lesser than what you did this time!!!! Joining NGO won't do you much good as far as handling the topic of quitting the job is concerned during the interviews IMO.

My life; My story

Read it or don't read it. I don't care.

Love it or hate it. I don't care.

There are two kinds of people, leaving aside the reservation quota, who make it to IIMs every year. The intelligent ones and the ones who acquire enough knowledge over the years to appear to look like the intelligent ones. And it took three years for me realise that I'm neither.

As with most of the others I fell in love with CAT as soon as I came to know about it in 2012.  I had just joined TCS and I was care free and enjoying my life. One day, sometime in September 2012, I had a chat with one of my colleges who briefed me about CAT. The seemingly simple idea that "how hard can an exam be that tests basic English and Mathematics at 10th standard level" grew within me that very day. The very next day I applied for CAT using an Axis Bank voucher having just a month's time to prepare. I knew I won't be getting the percentile that I aspire within a month's time. I set my goals on CAT 2013. CAT 2012 was just a trial run.

The clich├ęd background story (Science student- Engineer- IT employee)

I was always good at mathematics. It was always less preparation and more marks throughout the school days and I went on to get a 100% in 10th standard CBSE board exam 2006 with an 81% overall. This gave me enough confidence to take a shot at the revered IIT-JEE. One year down the line I realised I was no IIT material but AIEEE and NITs were within the sight. I slogged for one year and got a sub 10,000 all India rank in AIEEE and 88% in 12th CBSE board exam. But fate has its own way of saying f**k you.

My grandma passed away with just two days to my Mathematics board exam. I was completely devastated and I was in no mood to take the exam. And results showed up as expected. I got a meagre 80% in Mathematics. So getting into Anna University was completely out of the equation. Meanwhile my parents were at the verge of getting a divorce. And just a week before my NIT counselling their fight took an ugly turn and I had no parent to accompany me to my counselling. I finally joined a private engineering college in Chennai which was supposed to be a backup after abandoning my seat at NIT-Trichy.  

BTW I forgot to mention that I too had a love story.  I'm blessed to say that my first crush was my first girlfriend. We had a great time together throughout the 12th standard. With all the combined studies we did together for IIT-JEE, AIEEE and board exams we ended up getting the same percentage. It was one awesome year with her .  Once again fate intervened, her dad got transferred to Pune and she joined a college there. I was powerless to do anything to stop it. We had a huge fight before she left and I haven't talked to her ever since until she got married an year ago (2014). Well, we both have moved on and the past is behind us.

My college life was great. I made new friends for life and had an awesome time. Apart from travelling 80kms every day I maintained a CGPA above 8.5. Mu-Sigma came for placement and I screwed up in the interview after clearing the test and GD. Finally I got placed in TCS and I had no regrets until I heard about CAT. 

Will be continued in the next post.

Dear Kittu,

The placements of the 16th batch is still under process and therefore a defined number cannot be stated without calculation. But then more than 90% of the students have already been placed by this time which is before the end of their academic period. If you visit the link given below it shows the placement packages of the 15th batch which have been verified as per the IIM- Ahmadabad IPRS.

http://www.kiams.ac.in/placement_records.php

And IF you are serious and concerned about excelling yourself in the ground of management, then you can go ahead as it is absolutely worth the fee.

Best of luck!
