Anywayz,since i am getting bored, only one thing left to a lil more...
Spent the last one hour reading posts on PG, picked up arbit threads and found one interesting post from a dood in IIMB, this relating their summers

This is the official web release of IIMB's summer placements (for the Batch of 2004), which concluded on Saturday.

IIMB’s Summer Placements this year broke all records, wrapping up in less than three days flat with forty-one lucrative foreign offers to its batch of 187 students. It is the fastest ever process at the IIMs and at any Indian b-school with a batch of comparable size.

Investment Banks from abroad, multinationals and the best Indian corporates came, saw and picked up like never before.

Total no. of companies scheduled for Summer Placements: 120
Total no. of recruiting companies: 74
No. of students in the batch: 187
Total no. of offers: 255
Total no. of acceptances: 183
Total no. of international offers: 41, twice the number last year
Number of slots: 3

Slot Zero

This is possibly the highest % of a single batch going abroad for summers in any B-School this year. Speaks a lot about the calibre of this year's batch in IIMB
