                IIM I may have BCG up its sleeve, but what about the people whose profiles are among the last 200 of batch. IIM K is truly rising, and it seems IIM I only has BCG nowadays to fight with..

                  Since you brought in the ' last 200', the first 350 at I would have better placements than the batch at K. At this level, the few Marquee names and the unique profiles offered are all that differentiates colleges. I is doing a pretty good job placing a batch of over 500, including the batch at Mumbai. The last 50 people might not be getting amazing placements, but they are still getting placed. Anyway, all this chest thumping is entirely pointless. Both K and I have been doing well. Perhaps K has better placements in Marketing and GenMan, I does better in Finanance and consulting...but fact remains that there is still a bit of gap with XL and L, let alone ABC

                      IIMI had all these companies, and more. Students of the present batch at I have been placed with McKinsey and BCG. K cannot even dream of this.

                          You and I both know the truth behind the "x days" taken for placement. If you are from an IIM, that is (your tone implies you are from K). Chill out dude.

                            a) Last 200 at I: Their profiles are, contrary what you may believe, very good. Only the last 50-75 getting placed have ordinary profiles. b) When you say IIMK is "rising" what exactly do you imply? Better placements than previous years? That is true for I also, then. And maintaining that quality with a batch size of 500 , my friend, is not a mean feat. c) Only BCG to fight with: That is a valid bragging point, yes, and why not? If a top tier firm like BCG continues to recruit from I year after year (for about 4-5 years now), that definitely showcases their belief in the calibre of the students. McK too has hired from I this year.
