Every day I spend my thinking about the same question, I am 3rd-year Computer Science Student and after these three years in this college I’ve learned a few things, It is an accumulation of the positives and negatives overall. I am a believer in points and precision, so here are some:
1. After wasting a handsome amount of money in coaching’s like FIITJEE-Delhi and VIBRANT-Kota, and not achieving in JEE MAINS and JEE ADVANCED, the colleges like VIT, SRM, and MANIPAL is autonomous to fill.
2. Not reaching IIT’s and NIT’s, whilst having an interest in engineering, the mentality is to go for the forte of the same, at a higher cost and fewer percentages in the competitive and board examinations.
3. “Good Exposure”, students bound outside from Chennai think that this will provide them an experience and a challenge far from home.
4. You’re not alone, these colleges have a gentry from all the walks of life (Who can afford the tremendous costly tuition).
5. Placements are on a scale of low to medium, and scoring internships on the college name is a bit tougher compared to the government institutions. The average CTC offered is from 3.5 LPA.
6. A generalized example is that if you go out to buy a Car, and unfortunately you are not eligible to buy the topmost variant of that car, you end up trading few features of the car but the play is you’re still paying more for a car.
7. The college is average, and there can be the time you will regret taking admission, but the most important thing is to constantly educate yourself and have a sensible peer group with you.
8. Uncessary discipline practices is imposed on you, one can’t escape it by any chance.
9. The brand name is running out for year’s and people don’t risk out to trying something new or different, they end up here.”If there are fewer people around you either you are at the top of the chain or the bottom, mediocrity breeds crowd.”
10. Never expect anything from the college, professors and even the staff, you are on your own here, trust none.
