    Can someone plz. tell me what are the admission requirements for DOW and KEMC for 1st year MBBS. And also confirm that for AKU 1250 needed for SATI and 700 in bio, chem and physics SAT II needed.
    I am a canadian student finishing last year of high school so please also tell me how I can apply and when the deadlines are (AKU asks for SAT I by May 30 but does neone know the date for SATII? What about DOW and KEMC, when do they need admission applications?)

    Also, can someone please guide me whether it is a good choice for me to choose one of these med skools instead of stayin in Canada to be a doc. I plan on workin in canada/usa/britian once i m qualified. How hard is it passing all the prequisites and finding work at these places for KEMC, AKU and DOW grads? How are the studies, will I be able to hand them as a Canadian student? In Canada getting MD qualified takes 4 yrs undergrad + 3yrs med compared to Pakistan 5 yrs MBBS total or does it become longer than this??like after taking the MLE's?

    Thx in advance.

    You seem very excited about this which is good because if you really want to be a doctor you should be concerned.
    I live in the USA and I'm a high school senior. Listen the requirement to get into Aga Khan are very high in my opinion. hey if you have a 1250 on the sat and good SAT II SCORES THEN YOU SHOULD DEFINITLY APPLY.
    * there is $200 application fee last time i checked
    it will take about 5 years and if you pass the USMLE exams then you will be able to come back to the USA you will have to take the CLINICAL SKILLS EXAM AND SOME OTHER TEST. BUT AGA KHAN IS VERY EXPENSIVE YOU WILL HAVE TO SPEND ABOUT $100,000 ON your education there.
    Dow and King Edward are good and less expensive about $10,000 a year. but don't decide where you want to go while living in Canada go to Pakistan and visit, speak to students and professors and also speak to paki doctors who live in Canada, they will give you some good advice. if you live there then your lifestyle will change
    trust me i lived there the culture , the way people think and behave is totally different and people can be mean to u for no reason. think about going to college in Canada and then medical school in the usa even if it takes longer then will be better in the long run.
