Placement season brings a media frenzy to the IIMs...and 'leaked' reports that misrepresent the fact in both directions.
This is a blog by someone from IIMB
http://whoiscb.blogspot.com/2009/06/oh-you-are-from-iim-you-must-be-earning.html about the reaction of an IIM grad to the way people behave with you these days.
The moral of the story: If you've asked someone from an IIM his/her salary or placement details etc. DOBAARA MAT POOCHNA!!
