    As everyone here has been talking about how UPES is frivolously advertising, I'd like to bring to the said person's notice that everyone gets an equal opportunity. Let it be law college or engineering or management. Someone makes something good out of it while others don't. It's that sample. No offence to anyone but if a University can advertise that world exists in some 50-acres odd campus, then there's nothing wrong in stating that highest placement has been ₹29 lacs. I accept this point that there's only one student who's got this package but were others devoid of the opportunities? Or they just got a few backlogs, didn't perform well in those 4-5 years of graduation and now they expect to get a package like this? Truth is no one is going to pay you unless you're credible enough to get paid. In my experience at UPES, everyone gets equal opportunities, it's just how much you make out of it.

      COLS from its genesis has never made false promises,it has always pushed the idea that eligibility is directly proportional to opportunity. There is a very easy rationale to understand behind the percentage of placement that the news piece displays that applies to every law university across the country. The percentage is always taken up from the total number of students who sat for placements. Universities boasting an 100 placement scale doesn't mean the entire outgoing batch got placed. If in a batch of 80 only 54 sat for placements and all of them were placed it would ensue a 100 banner too. The news piece is accurate and not "Fake". A great number of nation builders stand as proof.

        I would agree on the point that college work is to bring better recruiters to campus to match up the student potential and this year there were many tech giant like Adobe, Microsoft etc who visited the campus for first time and were satisfied by student potential. They too recruited them at a good packages. However there were very few in number who were unplaced and there might be a list of reason for that. Just consider the scenario if one student is getting a heavy package, why cant others? The reason is simple, they have putted more effort than others and in the end college has given them a chance to bag a good package.

          So instead of questioning the placement records , if the studenta focus on their own devolopment , they may be able to contribute to the college . I'm a proud student of UPES and I'm blessed to have such a faculty and seniors who are ready to help me at every step .

            The placement of a student is not dependent on the college but it depends upon how the student performs in complete 5 years . The university bans students from sitting in the placement are for justified reasons besides it leaves no stone unturned to build the best lawyers in the world . The university can only provide oppurtunities but grabbing them and making the best out of them is in the hands of the students . No one even talked about the things which happen here at cols . This is the only college which provides specialisation in international trade and energy laws . This is the only place where moots and trial advocacy is a compulsory subject in the first year and encourages the students to parti te in them right when they enter the college . Parliamentary debates , youth parliament , mediation , client councelling , muns etc. , there is nothing which cols Doesn't provide . This is the only college which trains its students before the placements start .

              Well I personally feel that someone as reputed as Indian express will not publish such a story without having ground to it. We should not doubt credibility of this space at least. As for UPES, no ins ute/college will take risk of publishing stats, facts and figures unless its true. Yes I do agree on the point that a lot of colleges flaunt their placements if its good but its something that we students always want. After all We take admission to a particular college largely because of placements only.

                You seem to be misinformed. Information provided by you is incomplete and incorrect. UPES is known for its excellence and great placements track records. Facts and figures in above story can be easily validated by career services department (contact details available on their ). In none of the communication UPES claims to guarantee/ assure 100 Placements. Placement assistance is provided to only those students who are eligible for placements (who meet the basic CGPA criteria for placements) and have opted for it.
