Thanks one and all who have contributed to this thread albeit certain indiscretions from some people at times :). Nevertheless, it was fun and engaging.
Hope to have a more balanced and mature conversation going forward. I am sure we are all aware that our behavior (read discussions and postings) on public forums like pagalguy will determine the regard accorded to our institute as well as ourselves. So lets discuss internal queries/disconnects on pm's if thats ok and leave this forum clean. All top insti students have a lots of cribs but they do not do so publicly ;)
Thanks to all the seniors who have been of immense help through private msgs. Wish you all success. Hope to meet you all sometime and will definitely keep up the networking.
Hello to all those in the second batch. Me reaching the insti on the 1st. Looking forward to meeting all of you.
Dear sandy Sir,
My name is Aditya Kumar. I respect your views, but in this forum, most of us have already taken the admission, and i also said above words only after getting the info verified from the current batch student.
I understand Jammed_4u is over enthusiastic. For others again I am saying that please go to Institute, confirm from the present seniors. I have finished my Executive MBA and know the realities of the Business Schools. I dont say that what is written is wrong. Just I am saying that confirm things before taking admission and putting huge money. Its better to do analysis prior than later.
sandy_ism SaysI am not directly involved to this discussion. But, one thing I would suggest please verify the veracity of the contents posted on websites of Institutions, specially when it is regarding placements. For MBA, applicants stake a a very huge money.
