The 270 or so faculty are also fromdifferent parts of the country. July may be wet and hot and sticky, butit is pleasant most of the year. You are going to join an IIT and youhave to work hard to do well here.

Please IIT Guwahatido not let your mind stray with thoughts of branch change, gettinginto an IIM or making millions after graduating.

You will have nothing to worry about. Unfortunately, youwill get advice on how to succeed, how to fatten your biodata, howto plan your summers, etc. Please do not follow such advice. The IITway is to blaze your own trails. The IIT way is to think independentlyand to have an open mind. You are just getting into college. You have4 5. no idea of what the different branches of study are about. How canyou then be sure that this or that is the best way forward? Learn,explore, and then decide what is best for you.
