How to Select BEKAAR Colleges from Your options....

Dear friends
We came to know that various students, who have got calls from various MBA/PGDM colleges are now confused that where should they get admission. We will not suggest you any particular college here. We can help you in selecting the best college from your option. We can tell you some ways which can help you in eliminating the colleges which don't seem the best option or selection. There is not any particular parameter to measure the quality of any B-School. Still there are some ways.

If there are not so many people applying for the college, then be careful. you need to think about it, The college may say that it is due to  its higher cut-off, but you need to check it. There are many newer and relatively unknown institutes that may contact you saying that you’ve been shortlisted for the GD/Interview stage – this despite the fact that you may never even have applied to the school. It is nothing more than a marketing tactic used by B-schools. It is just a way to feel the seats.
You need to take a look at all the people who get final offers for admission. You need to check the selection process from GD/PI. If at the GD of 10 candidates 5 did not speak at all, and the judges are asking each and every one of those candidates to speak and present there thoughts and views, and despite this, all 10 of them seem to have received final offers of admission from that college, it indicates that you must at least reconsider your decision once again.
One more point, if the panel “encourages” you to “consider” a certain particular branch again and again and suggests that admission in that branch is almost certain, beware! It is because that course is "bakwass" and no one is ready to go for it.
Another most important point to be considered is, how close to reality the claims of the B-School are? Most exaggerated are claims relating to infrastructure and placements.A number of B-schools make claims regarding the companies that visit them for placement. Actually what happens is- most of the companies mentioned in the list have only “selected” trainees for free, then the B-School’s placement record and integrity are both suspect, please check that too. You probably should not join such a B-School.
Another area that is successfully exploited by a lot of B-Schools for “window dressing” of the brochures is the Board of Directors. Please remember that the constitution of the board has nothing to do with the way a school is administered. For example, a certain B-school has some very senior people from some of the top companies of this country the board. Not a single on of those firms has ever recruited from the school!
Please remember that the points listed above are only indictors. Please double and triple check your information before parting with hard-earned money of your parents. Be patient, dont’ fall for the glitter. Do keep in mind that only around half of the (approximately) 2000 B-Schools in the country are recognised, and even out of that number, many do not manage to place a large majority of their students.
You should always prefer to visit the B-Schools, which have made offers of final admission and verify that all that they claim actually exists! After all, the next two years can make or break your life.

For those readers who have posted comments on the previous post and have shared there problems.
Dear friends, You need to fear only when you are doing the wrong thing. If you are speaking the truth and you have proof of it then be sure, there is no law that can stop you to say the truth. Please encourage awareness. Share the truth here, with all the other students. After all you are our power. Your support is helping us to conduct more research and write here.

Thank you.
