Hi, i just wanted to know what a normal day at a pakistani med school is like. what time class starts?
how long classes are?
what is running through ur mind while the professor is rambling on?
what time you get out?
how long u study for after school?
what you do in your free time?..how much free time you have in a school day?

just stuff like that....

and

do class rooms have technology in them?(ie: Air conditioning, projectors,WiFi)
in public and private schools?
and what about technology in your hostels?

I quote this from CHM Lahore Medical College
"Hostels offices have been provided with computers and laser printers. Computers and internet facilities are also available for students at hostels."

Classes start at 8am for us at Shifa College of Medicine.

The lectures are an hour long each and rotations or labs go from 10:30am to 1:00pm and you usually get done early.

Uhh, I usually listen to the lectures as long as I don't know what they're talking about, but when they get repetitive then I usually think about medstudentz.com.

We're usually done at 4pm.

I study maybe about 3 hours after school during the week.

In my free time I play video games, go online, blog, watch tv, movies, or go out to eat with friends.

How much free time you have depends on how late you go to sleep and how much you study too.

Class rooms do have air conditioning and projectors, but no wifi.

Hostels have ac and tv's.

what time class starts?
In government colleges such at RMC, classes start 8:00 am and go straight till 2:00 pm! You get about a 15 minute break to fight for your order in a canteen. Dissection is usually a 2 hour class. Practicals/Lab are about 2 hours on the days you have them, and lectures are 1 hour long. To be blunt the first 2 years your sitting on your butt at least 4 hours straight every day. SIX days a week monday through saturday!

what is running through ur mind while the professor is rambling on?
The first few months
"why did I come to Pakistan,
"why is he speaking in urdu/punjabi",
"damn this teacher doesnt know how to teach",
"What is he/she saying???",
"Damn how am I going to survive 5 years of this"
"What the hell is blah blah"
"Gosh the girls in this school are a lot less attractive then I was hoping for"
"The guy next to me doesnt use deodarant or brush his teeth!"


how long u study for after school?
Id say if you can study at least 2 hours a day everyday you will cruise through med school just fine.

what you do in your free time?..how much free time you have in a school day?
Free time? Its all free time when you get home lol, unless you live in a hostel, you have to sleep when they sleep, watch indian movies w/them when they watch them, and harass girls on their cell phones when they feel like it. In a school day you dont have much free time, they dont like questions and if you look down for a minute they yell at u. THEY LOVE YELLING and making people STAND UP in order to be embarassed at their stupid questions.

and

do class rooms have technology in them?(ie: Air conditioning, projectors,WiFi)
in public and private schools?
Most schools have air conditioning in the lecture halls, but they make a point of using them not before a certain month so expect to be sweating really bad. Power outages happen a lot, they tend to use fans more. The hallways are hot, the labs are burning hot. They do use projectors sometimes, sometimes powerpoint and overheads but not too often in first few years.

and what about technology in your hostels?
Govt. hostels have no technology, maybe one or 2 computers if your lucky, best to bring your own laptop and use your cell phone modem to connect only for short time periods. THERE IS NO WIFI! Are you KIDDIN? =)

He meant that its really expensive to use the internet usually through your cell phone so its not easy to stay connected for a long time.
