Admission :

I had given NEET, the all india medical entrance test. Then it got scrapped in 2016 and neet 2 I gave. I scored badly and thought of dropping a year, but then I got a mail from the college to apply for wait list, and I did. After few days, I was granted provisional admission and I joined the college

Remarks :

The college is ranked number 1 in india, so obviously it'll have various positives like teaching, faculty, infrastructure, hostels, etc. Any negative thing could be that there's should be a common room for students for extra curricular activity practice. Apart from that, I love the college

Admission :

Initially I was invited for counselling in their main manipal university campus situated in manipal..when I reached the campus with my dad,I was overwhelmed looking at the campus..It was big,lush and green with students from different ethnic backgrounds studying under one roof...I was already excited..there were more than a 100 students in the counselling hall and I was not sure if I would even get a seat! But then by God's grace,my name was called and I already started looking at my future,being given the doctor tag...Iinitially I thought I was given admission in manipal campus,but I was informed that I would be placed in mangalore campus,just an hour away from the main campus..i was a little disappointed,but then made up my mind for it..mangalore was a totally different city for me..being used to living in a small and quiet town,i was taken by surprise..there was colour all around me..I met new friends,from different cities and even countries,it was an amazing experience..seldom did I know that these will be the people I would be spending the next five years in mangalore...the adventure started!!

Remarks :

I can't find anything bad about the college...Plus in every situation you will have your own good and bad experiences..but rest assured,you will sail smoothly..everyone will be there to help you...manipal is ready to welcome you...you will have a good time here...its like living in a different world...a new family..
