A student from Shifa recently transferred to Baqai because his family had moved from Islamabad to Karachi and he wanted to be closer to them. After spending a week there, he changed his mind and transferred back to Shifa.
I've heard good things about Baqai in terms of education but in terms of facilities I believe Shifa is much better. I've seen some pictures of the Baqai campus and it looks pretty broken down--but then again so do many other schools in Pakistan that impart a top-notch education.
Two graduates of Baqai who are from America said that the hostels were dirty and not run in any organized fashion by the college. I wish we had some current Baqai students to give their input.
Thnx a lot Rehan your reply really helped, I'm considering going to either Shifa or Baqai, the downside about Shifa is that I hv no family at all in Islamabad, but I have the marks to get into either and I have a cousin working in IBCC and he said I shouldn't have problems getting my marks converted. After your reply and reading some other things on this site I'm definately leaning towards Shifa.
