  1. Hi,

    I just feel that students applying to IIMC. should also apply to Symbiosis, MICA and Delhi School of Comm (DSC). All of these colleges have very god ranking and academic rigour and fab indsutry exposure. So if students apply to more than one place, there increase their chances of getting into atleast one presitious college and get better exposure. All the best!
