Hi All, Converted ABCLK. Have my home in Cal and not very averse to spending a couple of years near home, after 6 yrs (BE-4 + Oracle-2) away, and probably the rest of my life. Looking for good reasons either ways to select from A and C. :neu...

What about specialisation mayank?? 2 years in Oracle seems to say that you would be inclined towards systems.. Not necessarily though 😛 If thats ur choice then Cal seems a better option .

What say Gaurav :wink:


well, systems is a very strong contender (thats all I know upto this point in time!!). But finance is a very close second. Frankly I am unbiased on my choice for specialisation - except that I know its not gonna be marketing!

does that evoke any ideas?


Hey Manav ...me too from BIT,Mesra (1998 passout though )

SO you wanna specialize in Fin & Systems ...why do I smell IIMC all over your choices BTW ..In IIM's you can have dual specializations and the combo of Fin + Sys is best in IIMC .
IIMA is great in Fin but not too sure about it's systems prowess

Hope you make an informed choice (and we meet in IIMC )

Sanju

Haha!!...dude..go for A..except for the hometown factor that C has in your case...A scores over C in almost every other dept...faculty, placements, library facilities etc.
Anyways..i'm off to my iiml threads..:)
Cheers!!

Thanks Ravi. That helped a bit.

I really am looking for a healthy debate on this A/C/B thingie ... I beg to differ from few friends on the A/B/C thread, who are opposed to discussing options. I believe that if you do have options you gotta make the best choice, obviously also taking in your personal considerations.

Its not as if you were trying to crack CAT and once you're thru either of ABC, the comparison becomes taboo. In fact, it makes all the more sense when you have some basis for discussing this. Since before that, you really had nothing to choose from!!

Looking for replies ...
Mayank

Hi,

I'm not a guy who had faced the same tough choice But i'd pick A over C anytime!

I like the rigour that A has. Think that would improve general standard of the class. C has some superbrains - real ubergeeks :wink: But the avg student would gain a lot more out of the program at A, just bcoz he is forced 2 The reason C lost out 2 A at the rankings has been precisely due to this and that is y they r trying 2 change now.

As 4 hostel food, the feedback from the junta is that A has the worst food among the IIMs. Between food at A, B and K - definitely A has the worst (i've been 2 all three)!

As 4 C being close 2 home, dunno if that should really sway ur choice. One of my classmates at K has his home in calicut. But the guy goes home once a month or sthng. Bcoz u can't afford 2 stay out of campus on many weekends - god knows what might happen while u r away! A quiz might be announced, a case may be given - who knows

So i'd vote 4 A !!! And almost everyone i know would, except if the were scared of the supposedly tough schedule at A
