Knowing what you love, knowing your passion at an early age is very very rare. Choosing a particular course after consideration and not getting the appropriate exposure can be highly frustrating. Choosing a certain stream and realizing that you may not get the right knowledge, experience and placements at the end of 2 years can be a very scary thing for any student. As one should not judge a book by its cover, do not judge a college or its course with just a couple of parameters.
