This year has been one of the most craziest, frustrating, and the fun year of my life. Let me start out by saying when I was in America, I thought getting admission in a Pakistani Medical school would be a piece of cake. Like most Americans I thought I was the shit.(If your from America you know what that means, for those of you who dont know, basically it means that your the best etc.) Anyways I came here got my marks converted from the IBCC, I had a 3.8 GPA and they only gave me 767 from 1100. Then after that I took some entrance tests, and let me just I didn't know what i was doing on the tests. Pakistani students are smart or maybe they just memorize the books or something. Anyways I got admission to Sindh Medical College, but my dad said that Karachi is not a very safe place to live. I also got admission from SIMS but since it was not in the FAIMER-IMED list and they fees were about $10,000 which was too much. Then I had two options left, which were either go back to America or go where my cousin was doing his medical education: CHINA. I even looked at the Caribbean med schools but were kind of expensive. I decided to go to China. I left for China on November 29th. My second day there my dad told me that I had been accepted at Ayub Medical College in Abottabad. So then I got my ticket set for the first flight back and came back to Pakistan last Wednesday. Its been a wild year, ending with me getting admission in Abottabad. I also got to see China. Got some shipping done, experienced a totally different culture, and ate Chinese food. I took some pictures of China and I will post them. So as far as I know it I think I start school in a couple of days. Thank You to everyone who replied to my questions, especially to Rehan for making a great forum like this one and senior members like maik7upurz etc. Now that I know a little bit about this Pakistani med school, I will try to help anyone if I can.

Kind of a big essay I wrote. #sorry Sorry.#roll

The place I went to is called Wuhan. First I flew to Urumqi which is two hours, and then after that I flew for 5 hours to Wuhan. Let me tell you guy that no one there know any English. I think more people in Pakistan know English than in China. Also the Chinese food in Pakistan and America is very bland. Actual Chinese food is very sour and spicy. Wuhan is modern city with some areas that have the Old China feel. They have huge malls, everything you can find in America. Next time I will try to go to Shanghai as I heard its the best city in China.
P.S. Chinese airlines are the worst.

Congratulations UltraSpy!

Let us know how you like the place and maybe after a while there you can put up some pictures and write up a review on the college.

Oh and maik7upurz, I can't change the pictures to be attachments after they've already been added like UltraSpy added them. The site may be somewhat distorted while loading but it should resize to the normal dimensions after the pictures have loaded.

Well for starters, Ayub Medical College is located in Abottabad, which is a dead city if you ask me. Not as fancy as Lahore/Islamabad, however the weather is pretty good in the summer. And is only an hour and half away from Rawalpindi.

Right now I have no school until the first of March, because they get winter vacations instead of summer vacations. Hopefully when I start school, maybe I can make a thread like maik7upurz did for Rawalpindi Medical College.

Ayub Medical College

I took a lot of pictures of Ayub Medical when I first came to Pakistan but only found these 2 pictures. Its a nice campus in a good location but it has a history of the students being very pro-active and fighting with faculty occasionally for their rights.

i know how u feel. im 3rd generation british though, our family been in london since the 1960s. i recently went to islamabad to enroll onto the mbbs programme. when i got my a level grades converted it came out to 888/1100 of their shitty fsc. this is a pretty bangin mark. i thought i was the dogz bullockz. the truth is my brother i have relatives in pakistan who are pretty bad. drugz, rape, alcohol, ak 47s, 32 bore pistols, prostitution, smuggling etc is minor for them. they basically told me the shit that goes down in the ironically named pakistan. ne way money exchanged hands and i got admission into 3 medical colleges without even giving an entrance exm etc. nothing, nought, nada- kapish!!! riphah, wah and shifa. no bullshit. to cut a long story short, i went 2 riphah, revised a bit, found the professors were being 2 biased n failing me on purose. i just insulted their mumz n sisiterz, got my fees bak n hotsteppd it bak 2 london!!! hope u fair better. best advice i can giv u, is act gay and keep ur head down and basically [Edited by Moderator] do whatever u hav 2 2 get the degree. then get out of their. respec.

Awaiseali,

If your real name is Awaise Ali, you were never granted admission into Shifa's Class of 2010 or Class of 2011.

If what you're saying is true, would you be willing to provide an application and admission number so that we could verify your story?

Without any evidence from your side proving otherwise, I'm quite confident that you were never admitted into Shifa. It would be better for you and all the prospective students who visit this forum if you chose to tell the truth rather than inflated lies about your time in Pakistan just because you had a bad experience.

Thanks.
