Guys, I have received many messages about the choice between IIM L & XLRI (even when results for L are not declared yet :p). See if you are interested in HR then go for XLRI any day, however for other specialization IIM L would be a better choice always. 

People might say to you that with ~400 odd students the competition is more in IIM L but trust me the competition is much more in XLRI (because of the absence of quota and more focus on the overall personality of the candidate for shortlisting, all students are of top quality). Unless you have stellar academics, great work ex profile along with extra-curricular activities or national level awards in your CV, then you will have a good chance in XLRI otherwise go for IIM L. Without any of those you wont even make it to the shortlisting list of the top companies during the summer placements at XLRI. You can even confirm about the cut throat competition in XLRI with the current batch students. Outperforming people at XLRI to get the best of the jobs is not an easy task

Besides most of the companies for consulting, product manager & general manager profiles are open for both BM & HR in XLRI (~360 students), so competition for these roles is way more in XLRI then IIM L and as for Finance IIM L is any date better than XLRI.

So, don’t take your decision based on the polls, think thoroughly and be honest & practical in assessing your profile on the above points. And yes IIM tag matters, you will know once you pass out of the college!!

BM Location: Mumbai WAT-GD: Gap between academic curriculum amlnd real life. PI: 3 panelists P1: Law faculty at Xl P2: young lady P3: A young guy P2: why would you leave Reliance and come to XL, you'll again be placed in Reliance only if you come. P1: Approximately how many contractor workers in Reliance? P1: What are the provisions to protect them? P1: Which laws? P1: What about permanent employees? P1: what institution will you go to if you think your company has unjust policy? P1: Company famous for its environmental monitoring and it hourly reports all it's content? Which company is that? (I said Idk what company it is, but mentioned the complete environmental measures Reliance take, I mentioned about scrubbing of Gas) P2: What do you do with the scrubbed gas? P1: what is Vanaspati? P1: Is Vanaspati ghee solid or liquid? (I said it'll depend on conditions) P1: GST is charged differently on solids and liquid, how will it be calculated for ghee? P1: what will you do if you get a spoiled product? P2: You're already a manager, how will MBA help? P2: how many people under you? P2: Do you want to change sector post MBA? P2: You can easily switch even now, you don't need MBA for that. P3: Govt is planning to set up 10 GW coal based power plant, at the end moment they changed the plan and intend to install solar power plant instead, will the capacity change now? P3: increase or decrease? P3: how much increase? ( I said I cannot comment, we'll need a lot of data. It'll be "naive" to just guess a number. Yes I used the word naive) P3: okay consider the location of plant as Jaselmair in Rajasthan, now say. (I still denied commenting any number, and again used a wrong word, "vague". P3was irritated by now) P3: (Annoyed by now) how much will 10 GW plant actually generate? P2: how will the capacity regulate? P2: is it wise to operate at lower capacity? P2: what is the solution for that, will you put battery for that? P3: Types of coal? P3: What is the difference between them? P3: how does carbon content make a difference? P3: GCV of coal? P3: okay you may leave, take a toffee.

EDIT: Verdict: Rejected
