Thanks for the quick response, hopefully I can get a few more opinions b/c it sounds as though there is a large representation of shifa here.March 20th, 2007, 07:42 PM #242March 21st, 2007, 09:46 AM #243March 21st, 2007, 12:11 PM #244
Your grades are ok---that's around where they need to be so don't get senioritis and you should be alright in terms of that. SAT IIs are very important. They're a much better way to rank you against other foreigners that apply in comparison to your high school grades since every school grades differently.
But if you don't do well on SAT IIs you're gpa won't mean a thing. It won't get you in.MedGrunt signing out...March 21st, 2007, 06:35 PM #245March 21st, 2007, 06:45 PM #246March 24th, 2007, 03:37 AM #247
How does shifa rank among the private colleges in Pak?
Rehan bhai, since you seem to be the expert, what do you think of my grades?
Just on a side note, does shifa have any sports clubs? i know other schools have teams because one of my friends plays basketball for another med school.March 24th, 2007, 05:31 AM #248
There's more competition every year at Shifa. It's hard to say how Shifa ranks as compared to the other private medical colleges, but it's definitely a step up from some of the government schools. With all the popularity Shifa is gaining nowadays though, it's kind of generally accepted that Shifa comes right after Aga Khan on the private schools list.
And yes, Shifa has sports teams, but they're not what you're used to. There's no practices, no coaches, and a game only every 3 months or so if you're on the basketball team. It's all organized by students. Most of the other teams are run in a similar way.March 24th, 2007, 06:31 AM #249April 3rd, 2007, 09:43 AM #250April 3rd, 2007, 01:15 PM #251
no offense, but you sound like you're just waiting for someone to tell you you're amazing and that your grades are definitely going to get you in...i wish we knew for sure what it takes to get in, but unfortunately it's all relative and depends on the applicants that you're competing against. it would be nice to have more foreigners at Shifa though.#happy
and also asking for "any advice" is really broad. if you have any specific questions/concerns we're more than welcome to help, but without making them clear it's difficult to guess what exactly you want advice on...#confusedMedGrunt signing out...April 3rd, 2007, 03:41 PM #252
However until you can get your grades converted to an IBCC equivalence score and until you have taken the SAT 2's, it's all speculation. Unfortunately there isn't an exactly linear relationship between grades and the IBCC score. I've seen a student with grades lower than another's get a higher IBCC score. The truth of the matter is, their entire conversion system for American grades is rather vague and almost secretive. They've never provided a clear method of how they convert grades into the equivalence score (and I have asked them on numerous occasions).
So the best thing you can do is keep your grades up, get your diploma and get your equivalency score. Then take the SAT II and get 700 in at least two of the three subjects. If you can pull that off, you'll most likely get into Shifa.
Oh and it's ok if you don't take any math course next year but make sure you take an English class all four years of high school.
Good luck.June 12th, 2007, 09:04 PM #253
Shifa College will soon be releasing the admissions details and deadlines for the incoming freshman Class of 2012. I'll post some more info on here regarding dates when I get it.
Tuition is as follows:
Foreign students: USD $12,000.00/year
Local Pakistani students and those from the Middle East: Rs. 350,000/yearJune 16th, 2007, 09:40 AM #254
Is the fee for Shifa College of Medicine $12,000 per year. Or is it $12,000 for five years altogether? And will the FSC books in Biology, Chem, and Physics will be enough to do well on the entrance exam? Lastly...those of you that are currently attending Shifa, what score did you guys have on ur IBCC certificate that proved competitive during the admission process? what would be a competitive score from the IBCC that will secure ur position in Shifa? Oh and how long is the Entrance Test for Shifa?...this last question was for you Rehan...
Thanx for all ur help guys... oh and those of you that currently attending Shifa....how do you like it there?

Does anyone know if they are planning to move these dates any earlier for the 2008 admission season? If its not too much to ask, could someone attending Shifa could find out.
And any chance anyone would be willing to either link me to where I could find more pics of Shifa or put some up themselves?
And is Shifa hospital located right next to Shifa college? I went to the hospital last summer and, for those who haven't seen it, its looks just like an American hospital from inside and out. Thats one of the things that really attracted me to Shifa.
