    hey!
    right now, i'm in Ottawa, Canada finishing up my uni. degree..........actually, i'll be heading to SRMC next year...aug. 2003.....i still have a term to go to get my degree.

    i deferred the admission till next year.....i was planning to go this year, but decided against it. (close to getting my degree, might as well finish it).

    did u finish a degree as well? i read from your profile that u went to U. of Michigan?

    well, got to go...take care.

    no, i don't know anyone else that's going this year, but i do know someone who graduated from there a while back......

    to: skip intro..

    well if you can't stand it, then WHY are you reading my posts?

    and why are you replying to my post if you have nothing of value to contribute?

    and for your information, my posts AREN'T in upper/lower case, only the TOPIC TITLE'S are.

    if you get annoyed with something as miniscule as this, then you're in for a huge surprise when you have to read other physicians' handwritings...

    KORNLUST,

    It's 25,000 to reserve the seat and you have to come up with a 75,000 by the first day of class.

    You need a HS degree (certain classes).

    Well Kornlust,

    (Let's try to ignore Skip Intro's useless and rude posts)

    1. Yes, all you need is a Highschool Diploma and you have to have taken several classes, like Chemistry, Biology, and other's i'm not exactly certain on, on your HS transcript.

    2. You also need a letter typed out from your principle with a Grade Table, that explains what an A, B, C,D, and F means.

    3. Then you need your principle to write out a letter of proof that your HS was accredited by some sort of association.

    4. Then you need a Certificate from the Health Ministry of India (which i haven't gotten yet, but i'm working on it). I'll get you more info on that.

    Other than the horror of walking past a teacher you hated in HS, getting these letters/papers from your highschool isn't too hard.

    Are you interested in applying for this summer? I think there are still spots open. Do you have any other questions? I'll be flying out on the 26th of July...

    Later. . .

    I was told that SRMC might not make it available for US Citizens to do their last year (5th year internship) in the US. Is this true? I know students who are in their 5th year now, and are allowed to, but i'm not sure if this rumor is true concerning younger classes?

    They are turning it into a govt. school?? whom did you hear this from?
    how does this change things for future students??(i.e., admission criteria, will they still continue to accept NRI's...etc....). if you can give me any info. on this, it will be greatly appreciated! (since i'm planning on attending this school next year!)

    Thanks,

    take care. lates.

    DocToB,

    I honestly dont know how this changes things. And i'm extremely nervous to find out how this changes things. They most prolly will still accept NRI's, but i have a feeling the tuition will sky rocket (not that it isn't alot already), since they are only allowed to have 20 private seats, is what i heard. I don't think they even know yet what kind of an effect this will be on the school, since we don't even know now if our classes are starting on the 1st of August anymore. We might start all the up until Dec. 1 ! I would just contact the school directly. If you need numbers, email me at [email protected]

    yeah, that's what i heard as well.....1st week of October......they are trying to start ASAP.........i'm thinking of joining this year as well.............but we'll see(i have talked to them......)

    they are not changing the school into a govt. school, but they have increased the number of local seats and decreased the number of NRI's that they take each year..........this is what they told me when i talked to them a few days back................i think from 20 to 8 NRI's....................so, i figured it'll be better if i join this year....................

    well, got to go.....later.....

    Hi I'm just wondering were is Madras? and how many years is the program?!? and what is the web site

    thanx alot
     
  30. Ocean,

    Madras city ( AKA 'Chennai') is the biggest city in South India. It is also the capital of South-Indian state called TamilNadu. Tamil is the local language spoken and madrasi is another langauge spoken by locals which mixes tamil with English.

    Madras Guys are rated 'Hottest' in the South east Asia and nick named 'stallions'...
    ;)

    There is more info about Programs in the infamous 'banned' thread 'Go to India for medschool' in this same International forums. search for it!

    the program is 5.5 years long, that includes 1 year of internship that might HAVE to be done in INDIA (a rumor i heard, altho all of the seniors now are doing it in the US).

    Madras is on the east southern coast of india. I never heard anything about the guys being hot or anything like that... lol. But it's pretty conservative, but it IS a big city, so there are things to do.

    the website is http://www.hostindia.com/srmc

    Are you still mad about something that happened months ago or something? I'd suggest that you try to get over it, or get some professional help.

    I only responded to a message that you apparently went back and changed to a smiley face. (See above other post.) It appears that you were only shamelessly bumping your post, and also using that as an opportunity to re-address something that happened months ago at my expense. You went back and changed your message.

    :confused: :(

    Why do you keep bumping this thread, and trying to make me look bad at the same time? Did I do something to offend you. I'm sorry, if so. A while back, I just wanted to point out to you that I don't think it's necessary to use sIlLY GImmICks to try to make people read your posts. If what you say is valuable, then people will read it. What you say should stand on its own merits. If no one's really interested, then your posts will move down the chain. That's just what happens. I think it is kind of shameful to bump one's own posts - and even worse to try to make others look bad in doing so.

    Sorry, but I think others would agree with me.
