Fully satisfied of my overall IIM A experience.

Placements: Placements were excellent. IIM A has cluster system (with companies of same field arriving on same day), almost 40% of batch I guess had offers by the end of cluster 1 (I. e. Consulting & Finance firms), including PPOs and lateral offers. 100% of students got placed. The highest, the lowest and Average can't be calculated since a number of companies don't give salary details in the Job Description Forms. But the highest for domestic would definitely be more than or equal to 50 LPA. Around 100+ ...

Good placements, top-class infrastructure, and world-renowned faculty

Placements: IIM Ahmedabad follows a cluster system instead of a day system for placements wherein companies are categorized by function/industry/sector instead of pay or brand. The placement process is not oriented towards achieving 100% placements, it is purpose is to provide the best job-person fit. However, inevitably, the entire batch gets placed every time within 3 days.

It depends if you are belong to OBC, SC and ST, you can easily get the admission. But if you are from general category, it is so much difficult to get into black IIM and new IIM. Baby IIM could be a possibility.
