SMDC didnt actually have mbbs merit of 81.6% it fell below 80, the same was with bds. They told everyone that their last merit was 74 but was actually below 74 , people with 70% also got a call last year.

Not at all, Most private colleges have aggregate above 80 for mbbs and each year merit increases irregularly but most at the rate of 4% with respect to govt merit. Last year was a paradox, While the merit for govt decreased merit in private increased by 3-4% give or take in each college. I compared the merit lists of most private schools with each other and again compared them with year 2013 and with 2012 and with 2011, I really wonder if the merit again will increase this year too.

80% above may not be as high as govt merit but it is still high enough. The way the merit is increasing in private med schools is really quite baffling, every year it increases irregularly. most low tier colleges which had very low aggreagates few years ago now have above 80 and it keeps on increasing.

Well location wise I would definitely rank FMH better(In the city shadman,Lahore) whereas LMDC is just out of the city. LMDC's downside is that its outside the city and commuting there( for me) would prove to be very taxing. Secondly LMDC takes almost all students on donations which is a no-no for me where as FMH is quite lenient, LMDC's administration and Board of Directors are Political thieves, they are only interested in money and donations, Whereas FMH is not so ****ty in their dealings with students. While LMDC has many (many many) flaws I would still rank it better than FMH because It has better teachers and teaching hospitals/hospitals in general, And in my opinion LMDCs name is more favorable in Credentials than FMHs. Overall I think doing mbbs/bds in lmdc is better than doing mbbs/bds from FMH. Thats just my two cents on the matter.

The only ones I know that are super shady in their dealings with students are LMDC,IMDC,MMDC,Avicenna and Continental MC. These are the colleges that I know of that take majority of the students on donation basis, Generally all colleges take donations but only about 5 % of the seats are filled this way. I would assume that Amna Inayat and Rashid latif both take donations because lets accept it, In pakistan private medicine is just a buisness there is no dignity and honesty in their dealings. Few are honest in their dealings where as they dont take donations like (CMH,Shalamar) most have a shred of honesty and fill their seats with only a few students on donations( FMH,CPMC,RLMC etc) whereas some dont have it at all ( LMDC,IMDC etc).

I guess the studies depends on the faculty present in the respective colleges and all I have heard is that LMDC has better faculty than FMH, Although it has better does not mean that FMH is not on the losing side. If you cant get into LMDC then the next best option is FMH, It also has competetive faculty and very respectful teachers, There is not alot of gap between FMH and LMDC faculty.

Like I said LMDC takes people on donations and people who have very low aggregate get into LMDC easily on donations, Getting good grades in medical school or in general depends on the person in question and not on the faculty, What I'm saying is that Faculty of LMDC is a bit better at guiding students to achieving better grades even though they are clearly not above average students like those in colleges like FMH and CMH because most of them got in with money or connections. In my opinion its quite a stupid question to compare the "studies" of different colleges when it only and actually depends on the person in question, It only matters if the faculty is competitive and willing to guide the the students reasonably.

In my opinion SMDC has the potential to be the best private college in lahore, It is backed by the Nawaz family which means it it well endowed with money and finance. Dont really know about the studies or the campus I havent visited them yet.

i have am aggregate of 52% and want to get into lmdc i am ready for giving donations so can i get into it?
Its exactly like @husnain1 said you might have no chance on local seat but whatever is the case they will ask you for a very big sum. But I dont really get the contradiction between UHS and Private schools, according to the UHS guidelines only those can apply who have above 60% agg. Either UHS is in on it or it doesn't have an idea about whats going on (which is highly unlikely).
