Other: You sure get a good bunch of people around you, being in an IIT, whom you can be inspired from. There are fests and activities throughout the year, and you wouldn't realise how the time is flying. Students usually go to Nepal and areas in the Himalayas during vacations as they're quite nearby. Patna city lies on the train network that stretches throughout the Hindi belt, so it's well connected. It may be intimidating at first as the popular perception of Patna is not that great, but you'll realise that this is a nice place to be in once you're here. You might be eligible for some scholarships in fees if you have good grades. Otherwise, I'm sure the fees won't be a big issue.
