You have many facts wrong here my friend which can mislead other students
1.Placements are not good at all:
I would rather put it in this way "Placements are not bad at all"
Highest package offered is of above 10 lpa
Average package offered hovers around 5-5.5 lpa (These facts are for CSE branch only)
2.It is compulsory for you to take a laptop offered by VIT:
I have completed my first year in this college and i am still not offered any laptop.
Alas i bought one on my own
3.Agreed VIT is not as good as BITS or top NIT's BUT it is much better than many NIT's
I would rather suggest you guys that check out these things yourself from a foolproof source and do not get misguided by others
Hope this would help you Sreeram :)
