Overall: First of all, for the people who are reading this if you are planning to join this college, then congrats on getting into one of the best colleges our country could offer, IIT KGP was a dream college of mine, and has lived upto my expectations too

Placement: I always want to remind the placement is dependent on how much you work hard inside the college, I have seen most of my freinds gettinh placed so yeah,many were selected through Google, Microsoft, and one even from IBM, but not all get placed in top companies either, so you have to mind that

Infrastructure: This college has one of the best infrastructure for a engineering college, here they not only have courses of engineering, they even have management courses and medical , they college has been provided with almost everything, from fantastic practical labs to even, amphitheatre, swimming pool

Faculty: The faculty present in kgp has to be one of the best people I have had interaction with, they explain very well, clear doubts too, but most of the time students don't depend on teachers to clarify since here they prefer to sleep study more, so yeah faculty's are extraordinary, but you will still find a lot of people preferring self study as a better option

Hostel: I hope by the point you have written advance exam, and even passed you should not expect to get a 5 star hostel, it is a bit old,but clean you will get 3 sharing room initial in first year, but it cab become a single room in following years so don't worry, yes it is not great as top colleges of other country provide, but at the end of the day it is still wonderfull to live with your friends
