Does anyone know how IIMC is? It seems like a pretty good college, but how is it rated??December 2nd, 2006, 11:28 PM #265
For the Pindi/Islamabad Area, I would rank the medical colleges in the following order (my personal preference) for foreigners to attend.
3. Army Medical
4. Fauji Foundation
5. International Islamic
International Islamic is pretty new I believe, but it seems solid from what Ive heard, but I dont know much about it though. Keep in mind these are my ratings only for the Twin City area, as a foreigner. But for reputation, education my ratings are as follows.
1. Army Medical (due to less number of students, around 70 per class)
2. RMC (due to reputation etc)
4. International Islamic
5. Fauji FoundationNever let the fear of striking out, keep you from playing the game.December 3rd, 2006, 01:51 AM #266
Hey thanks so much for the rankings, that actually helped alot!! How hard would you think it is in to get into Army medical and what do you need to get in? like SAT 1..or 2's, etc.? So army medical isnt that bad of a school either i'm guessing..almost like Shifa or RMC?
Thanks a bunch for ur posts and opinions! it's actually reallllyyy helping me decide where i would like to go!! #coolDecember 3rd, 2006, 07:21 AM #267
is it true that the army med college has fewer places for females than males? n i know this is going to sound silly but do u have wear like army uniform?like those khakhi sarees? (females)"Are you allergic to our mascara??? But its sooo pretty!" -saira 03.06.07

Oh yah and you have to be lke super respectful to ur seniors and you have to lke say salaam to them every time u pass by!!

If you want to become a doctor, Army Medical is one of the best then as the facilities are much better, the discipline as hard as you might find it is good for you. Having only 70 students per class is a major PLUS point in comparing it with govt colleges. You do have to wear the uniform all the time and I know girls will have a tougher time adjusting to Army Medical compared to guys though as they lock you up in the hostels and your allowed 3 hours once a week go to out and thats usually with the school bus so if you go to AMC best to live off campus if your a girl but I know a foreigner from usa, shes on this board to, Faiza is her name even though she doesnt post, I believe shes in 3rd year there try messaging her maybe.
International Islamic I dont know if its in Islamabad or Rawalpindi even! But hear its properly managed.Never let the fear of striking out, keep you from playing the game.December 3rd, 2006, 09:28 PM #271
When my dad went to pakistan like a 7 months ago, he went to check out the army medical college n bought back their prospectus...and it had pics of students w/ the uniform.. and i just thought the uniform was hilarious!! but like Sadaf said, it does look super thick and SUPER UNCOMFORTABLE!! I don't mind the strictness and the respect part because i think thats a good charecteristic to have! I think its a bit easier to get in as well if u have family there...#grin!!December 3rd, 2006, 09:49 PM #272
Well you would mind the strictness when you'll be taken to drills and exercises as early as 6 in the morning.December 4th, 2006, 02:27 PM #273
Just imagine how "fit" you will be!Never let the fear of striking out, keep you from playing the game.December 5th, 2006, 02:12 AM #274
haha, it sounds a lot like boot camp!! #cool...but wait, does anyone know what the requirements are to get in and their daily routines...? SAT 1, SAT 2...etc etc. Their website isn't too helpful, they just say 60% or higher on equivalence.December 7th, 2006, 02:25 AM #275
ok first of all when I meant respectful i meant it towards students older then you. Like my friends cousin said that if you did'nt say saalam to ur seniors they would lke stop u and be lke "what do u think ur doing?" "you think ur soo cool just becuz ur from AMerica?" "you have to listen to us cuz were ur senior!" ok yah she was very annoyed! She was thinking about switching to Shifa cuz everybody told her it was a really good school but she just decided to come back to the states! hmmm lets c what else she said she hated the drills more then anythin cuz they made u do some of the weirdest things...also if u have family in the army its a lot easier to get in! But I mean everybodys diff...her brother went and really lked army med...but she had a really bad experience. I guess u have to have the capability to adjust to such a diff envirment!December 7th, 2006, 03:41 AM #276
Thats actually really true, it depends on where you can adjust. Army is probably harder to adjust too..but do u know what kind of drills they make u do? My dad wants me to go to Army cuz its easier for me to get in cuz my Grandfather was in the army and so when my dad went to check the college out their like yea we`ll except her, etc. etc. I think in general though, Shifa is a better option as opposed to army..but the education in Army is realllyyyy good too! its such a tough decision #confusedDecember 7th, 2006, 04:08 AM #277
yah if u lke army medical college u should go for it! People in pakistan really lke army medical college cuzz its an Army college and army is lke a big deal in pakistan lke i know my cousin in pak have always wanted to be a army doc becuzz they love how they werre the sarees which i think is kinda dum..but its appealing to them..soo they said they would except u even though have not seen ur grades??? i really don't know exactly what they do for drills but i'll ask!

It says in the U.S. passport that a person may lose his/her citizenship if they serve in another countries' army. Since the medical students gradute from Army Medical School as the rank of Captain Doctors, would they lose their citizenship? Iam not trying to scare anyone, just would like to know...December 8th, 2006, 01:21 PM #279
Also if you join the Pakistani army seperately then its not 100% sure you will lose u.s. citizenship, but very likely/possibly. I should mention that Israel is one country American citizens are allowed to join but unfortunately pakistan does not seem to be one of them.

In the Army College Prospectus, it says that the males students have to serve a term as a doctor in the army, however for the females you dont have to..but this isn't actually serving the army-fighting, etc.- it's just working as a doctor for them. Sadaf- that's actually quite funny how ur cuzins like the uniform, i think there are alot of things that appeal them more than they would appeal us! lol. #grin
