    on 12th result of entrance test
    on 14th i deposited the gud 28 thousand of the fees
    & the classes will start from the 20th

    28k for coaching? wow
    I'm sure I didn't spend more than 20k including coaching, and all my 4 yrs of study in IITM
    (mainly cos I was in the last batch before IIT hiked their fees :D )
    hmm times have changed
    the only advice I can give u is forget abt getting too much information about the exam and IITs and stuff, and just concentrate on your technical knowledge and outlook. looking at a tennis ball rolling in the mud and coming to a stop, and understanding what forces acted in the process will get u farther than knowing the solution to problem 23.4 of Irodov's 12th edition.

    oh my ...

    dude ... better u stay outta this rat race of getting to IIT ... then getting to IIM/US univs ... then "pushing thru" your whole life and realizing in the end that this is not exactly something u had wanted/charted initially ...

    better u decide what u wanto do in life (long term rather than short term) ... and yeah it sounds very counter-intuitive since i am also guilty of not following this advice ...
    but man there has to be a retrospection ... and ya really need ta talk to existing IITians (passout or current) ... as to what will lay in ffront of u after it ...

    hmmm well if u really wanna take the easy way out in life then yeah for sure IIT provides u that ... (OK getting into IIT is not easy ... but once u r there u dont need to really slog) ... however, what this willl do is to blur those killer instincts that every one should have ...
    second thing is it will (somehow or the other) make u less humble ... that is very bad ... esp in today's world ... u will not think of "stooping" down to some typical kinda works ... which is totally unacceptable in todays world ... (this am not guilty of ... however, many frends of mine are) ...

    third ... getting there will make u feel that u havta get everything u desire for in life (dunno y but that really happens) ... sorry folks ... thats not what happens or is going to happen in reality ... frankly speaking the peep who dont make it are much better off in that respect ...

    fourth ... whatever i have said can be taken as bull**** (hahaaa) ... i am just presenting the dark side of the moon ... obviously there is bright side ... that everyone else will show u ...

    best of luck in your endeavors ...

    and since u have joined/planning to join Bansals ... u dont need any advice ...
    man what are u paying those ****s for?

    on second note ...

    go to IIT M if u are keen on going to US ... the system there is very methodical ... and u are bound to get thru even if you are guilty of having low CGPA + low GRE ...

    go to IIT B for the best placements ... prob the best'est' ...

    they say IIT K is for those who wanna go to Civvies/IAS thingy .. dont know the reason for it ... but mebbe it has some amount of truth to it ...

    dunno much about others ...

    All the best Soumendra. Prepare yourself to face failure or success to get through IIT. To me it doesn't matter where you do but just what you do and how you do. IIT is surely a big launching pad but not into it is surely not the end of the world. I screwed up education in School, screwed it up in College too but I am in one of the highest paid Engineering jobs as of now. I earn much more than several of my friends who did it in IIT. I am not discouraging but I am just telling you that if you are not in IIT, doesn't mean it's the end of the road for you. I studied in a sick private college but the college had some terrific scholars.

    IIT D is the best.

    Btw...heres a piece of advice,
    there is always the iit brand works everywhere. If u say that u are from iit, people look upto least thts what i feel.
    if engg is ur interest, iit's the place.
