    ~1000+ applied I think.

    Merit is 50% = FSC & METRIC 50% = NTS entry test

    No, not 1000. Alot of people joined their facebook group but the number of applicants (according to the man who attended the phone) are around 2500+.
    I have concerns over the faculty though.. I have heard they've hired 'make-do' sort of people which might not be good for business.. Plus, the degree will be of Air Uni, which I don't think is much credible as compared to UHS. Even if I make it, I'd rather go for Shifa or even RLMC or Avicenna.. at least they've been in business long enough

    Considering that Pakistan Air Force is managing it , it's future prospects are bright , would definitely take it over the little private med schools like Avicenna

    Not to mention the whopping 10 lac they demand fees for first year. It's 9 lac tuition and almost 47,000 admission fees.. too damn much.
    There's also going to be a visible bias towards PAF wards, although the seats favoring them are 15. Whoever falls out of that quota is gonna have to convince' them to take their admission. And by 'convincing' I mean a lot of $$$$$$.

    With the above mentioned criteria, even if Fazaia was bigger than AMC, what sort of Doctors will it be producing? How long will it hide from the judgy eyes of PMDC and UHS? You see CMH was a disciplined player in the Medical business. It also took it luck and effort to reach the level it has now and even then it has faced problems over Hospital conditions with PMDC.
    Fazaia is a bigger RISK than most people understand.

    The deputy registrar of Fazaia Medical college showed me on his computer the number of applicants who paid the Challan" it was approximately ~1000+.

    Also so fazaia got noc from PMDC but it's still not on the PMDC website. Also it's not on the world directory of medical schools.

    Most military personnel don't have a lot of "$$$$$$" to throw around I would know because my dad is one , not saying it'll reach the level of amc or cmh anytime soon but still has better prospects then the little private med schools considering it's handled by the military

    Got to see the Deputy Registrar's Computer eh? That's quite the story you got there..

    The NOC is for ACQUIRING ADMISSIONS, recognition comes into play when the College is functional (based on PMDC's countless inspections).

    McLovin, I'm talking about the Civillians, the PAF wards can enjoy 50% Off the fees (15 seats).

    I'm going to assume you're new to the 'business' that is Medical College Administration, bro.
    Plus, Army walay don't have any claims on any reserved quota of FMC.

    Enjoy the view, with the apparent lack of faculty that's probably what you'd be doing if someone got in

    so you would not recommend anyone to go to this college and get their MBBS.

    The fact that FMC is being allowed to conduct admissions means it has primary go ahead from PMDC. PMDC will have regular visits of the college once it becomes operational. Their facilities and staff will be reviewed. The college will enter final international lists once the first batch graduates. So it'll be a minimum of 5 years before FMC goes full on into every list. Someone mentioned UHS will look at it with suspicion. UHS has nothing to do with it.

    No one can say for sure how it'll turn out. But if their facilities are good and the E9 hospital is good, I don't think it will face major issues. I've a feeling it will rise in the ranks pretty soon mostly because it's forces controlled and is in the heart of Islamabad like Shifa is. IMDC, AL Nafees etc are too far and are often the reason people don't prefer them.
    But do look into it's facilities before you confirm your admissions. And check out the attached hospital too. And make sure the professors are experienced because PMDC will look at that too.
    Admission fee of 47k isn't too much. All private colleges have an admission fee of 50k. 10 lac for year one isn't a lot either. IMDC takes over 9 lac and Shifa takes around 8 lac.

    10 lac is quite alot as compared to other colleges. which take 7-8 lacs on average and in 5 years it becomes 10-11 lac more than normal, which is alot of money, More than that it has nothing to show for its 10 lac. Not in IMED, Not in PMDC, Not even optimal operational just yet, I still think starting fees should be less than 8. The only thing going for it is that its run by the PAF, And we still dont know if Air universities degree is that valuable. UHS has had a history with issues with universities other than itself which grants medical degrees. It has had a beef with everyone, UOL/Bahria/STMU etc. And to top it off PMDC is always on board with what UHS does. I think its unfair that one Institute holds power over an other simply because it conducts 'Entry tests' for the province.

    I've got a call from LMDC..
    By all means, if you can apply for FMC, do it. But don't make it your first priority. Good Luck to everyone who gives the entry test tomorrow!

    Not in IMED not in PMDC means students of FMC won't be eligible to take USMLE.

    You need the first batch to graduate to go into world directories so it's obviously not there yet. Air university is pretty high up in the HEC rankings, 5-8 I think. Because it's a multi-structural uni like Bahria, it's not doing so bad.
    First year can never be below 7 for a private university because the yearly fee is 6.6 anyway. First year involves admission fee, security deposits, immunization fees etc so it can never logically be below 7. In the Isb/Rwp Shifa is charging the lowest at 8.06 for the 1st year and 6.6 each remaining year. I remember IMDC sent me a letter to submit mre than 9lac for the first year. So, Air is probably asking for even more because it's new and trying to establish. But yes, it is more than usual but private med schools do it because they know people are still going to join them anyway.
    And STMU had absolutely nothing to do with UHS. The problem Shifa had with PMDC was that they switched affiliation with STMU instead of Bahria and Bahria complained to PMDC that they weren't informed and they refused to award degrees to the graduating batch that year. STMU wasn't eligible for conducting entrance exams until it was included in category A. That went to court and then it got settled as STMU got included in category A, conducted it's first profs and held entrance exams and bahria had to award the degrees. That was all.
