On consultaion with Deans they told tht U have to very bold To take the risk,,,,,But GUys believe me no one wants to take risk of 2 years....becoz we r investing around 6.5 lakhs,,,,here..so Personally i m not going to take into this college,,,becoz i m not at all satisfied with the deans views of Taking risk,,,n students laugh on hearing this word "placements".

For those selected, & yet to pay the first installment of fees for IFIM, please PM me before you make that payment. This concerns your careers, & the high amount of fees to be paid there...

OK puys, some real hard facts about IFIM-Bangalore. The first list of selected candidates from the first round of January-2009 admissions was put up on their web: ifimbschool.com around 2nd February, 2009. The list contained names of 215 selected puys (PGDM- 120 seats, IB-60 seats, total-180 seats), who were required to pay up the first installment of 1 lac tution +30000 Hostel fees by 18-2-2009. Waitlist for the first round was upped on the site around 23rd, Feb, '09, containing 57 names (All admissions on first come, first serve basis). These puys had a submission deadline till about 3rd March, '09. Second round of GDs started from bangalore (Last weekend, 6-7th march), for which another list of candidates has been put up today morning, containing 108 names here:

:: Welcome to IFIM ::

These chaps have a submission deadline of 25th March, 2009.

(Please Note: The previous 2 lists of candidates have been removed from the site, & replaced by the third list today morning, I have both previous lists of candidates in MS-Word format on my PC). No fooling around with me... I wanted to warn puys against IFIM, so I saved the previous lists, in fact, I've been tracking IFIM site since early January 2009, checking for these developments. This was done particularly after reading the first 4-5 posts of this thread.. I wanted to verify the authenticity of facts cited by last year's selectees here.

OK, coming back to the crux of the matter.. can you deduce any anomaly in para 1 here?...

I said that there are 120 PGDM +60 IB total 180 seats.. how many calls, waitlists, & then again calls (Round 2) are there in all? 215+57+108= 380 calls in all for 180 seats till date, we still have Gds left in Delhi & Calcutta this coming weekend to go..so another selection list will come up in a week's time from now. What do you see from these facts above.. A high rate of attrition, or shall I say dropout/refusal to join/unwillingless to join IFIM?

It proves the authencity of facts as cited by last year's puys, read posts 1-5 at least, placements are worthless at IFIM, this was corroborated by the PM I sent to interested puys here, citing my conversation with some folks of the current batch & alumni at IFIM- Bangalore.

This is a last word of advice to puys going for this weekend's Gds for IFIM. Final decision is yours.. as the career is all yours after all..

All the best.
