College Infrastructure
The college has a great infrastructure. There is free wifi, projectors in all the classrooms. Well equipped labs. The cafe is also very nice. Everything is great about infrastructure at LSR. There are separate tut rooms as well.
Academics
I studied Maths there. All the teachers are amazing. They are supportive too. The way of teaching is great. It is not like other colleges where teachers themselves dont wanna take classes. The curriculum is updated.
Placements
The quality of placements is also great. All the big companies like McKinsey, KPMG, EY, Towers Watson come for placements. Mostly the placements are from commerce and economics departments. But yes there are placements in other depts as well.
Value-for-money
The cost is too minimal. At my time it was 18k per year. I do feel that I was getting money's worth. There is nothing to say about value for money. In today's time this fees is nothing as compared to the money charged by other institutes.
Campus Life
The campus life is also great. The college is situated in Kailash colony. It is close by to two metro stations. The campus also has a hostel, gymnasium, table tennis court, volleyball court etc. There are ample facilities.

The faculty members have the best knowledge to enlighten students. Teachers make the concepts clear from the scratch and then move on further to explain higher topics. Besides to boost the learning library is there which has ample of books for references
Placements
Since I am in first year, I don't know much about placements but LSR brings out the best job opportunities. On talking to seniors I found that college tries best to place all of its batch in a particular year.

Lady Shri Ram College for Women has long been recognized as a premier institution of higher learning for women in India and ranked consistently as the best arts college in the country. The teachers here guide you and push you to come out of your comfort zone. They’re so encouraging and helpful. They listen to your perspective on things or texts and help you foster and bring out your creative side. The college is a little stringent when it comes to attendance but it offers so many opportunities that you would never want to leave. The placements are great. About 80 percent of the students, who sat for placements, got placed. The average package was 6.4 lakhs of annum. The companies that visited campus included Parthenon, McKinsey & Co., BCG, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, Deloitte, KPMG, EY, Grofers, Vmock, Citi, etc. The infrastructure is really well-maintained. We had good Wi-Fi facility, labs, and well-maintained classrooms. We had a well-equipped library with computerized user-friendly user filing system. The faculty is amazing. They are well-qualified and expert in their respective fields. They left no stone unturned to help us with our course. Not only that, they always encouraged us to go beyond the classroom. We had tutorials every week for every subject to make sure every student got individual attention. The teachers were friendly and approachable. Our faculty members were our mentors. The best thing about them was that we could talk to them about anything, be it a personal matter too.

No, the admissions to Lady Shri Ram college are purely on the basis of merit, the percentage you scored in your class 12th boards examinations.
