There is also a great mix of extracurriculars ranging from volunteering work to cult fests to so parties. Alum network is fairly decent and the placements are one of the best in an Indian B-school.

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.
