My college is great in many aspects though there are a few thngs they could improve, the teaching not all the teachers are good. I know everyone deserves a chance but if a teacher is consistently bad, he/she ought to be changed, the fees the college makes enough money as it is im sure, i think you could ease on the fees a little, hostels we MBBS students live in the worst hostels of the lot here which i dont get while other college memebers get to live in really good ones. Manipal university bacme famous for MBBS first, why are we given poor hostels while others arent.
I wrote the entrance exam for the college itself. I dont remember my exact score but my rank was 1500-something. This college is one of the top ten in the country and since i wasnt able to get into the other colleges i tried for i got into this one.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
To be fair, manipal university is known for their expense when i joined the college it was hefty 6.42 lakhs per year but its been ever increasing year after year.
Our college boasts about the fact that many who pass out from our college get into the US after clearing the licensing exam for the same which is a huge accomplishment. Also Manipal is a worldwide recognised name and our doctors are sought after.
The hostel facilities would depend on the amount you pay or you can just stay in the apartments nearby but the hostels are extremely well maintained every time you walk by, you see someone cleaning something or the other. The hostel rooms are adequately spaced. The bathrooms are cleaning and its 24 hour electricity most of the time except during the occasional thunderstorms. Mess food is provided at another site away from the ostel but withing walking distance (500m) and provides good food, both veg and non veg.
The alumni network is strong here but i dont know when they meet and such senior students are extremely helpful so much that they all sit down with you, calm your nerves and tell you itll be easy its nice having them around.
The faculty is a mixed bunch to be fair there are really helpful teachers who teach well and then there are teachers who teach because theyre being told to/have to.
The campus life is brilliant and manipal is known for that the gender ration is roughly 1:1. We dont have hostel parties as such but you can if you want to. We do have cultural societies for dance, music, research, sports, etc. To be honest manipal's the most tolerant place youll find we have people here from all over the world and they engage in whatever activites indians do without any hesitation nor do we have any issue with that.
The exams were hectic as hell there was no mercy for us. We would have to read 300 pages or so in one night because our university wouldnt give us any days between exams which is absurd considering the volume we have to read.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
The course curriculum is as hard as anyone would expect an MBBS course to be the portions are huge and the exams are back to back. There were times when i thought it was too much but you cant do anything about it, you just got to keep reading and hope for the best.
Based on what I've heard the internship in the hospital here is hectic but you get to see a wide variety of cases since our hospital is a tertiary centre in the outskirts of the city. About the pay I am not sure.
Our college hold numerous fests throughout the year the literary one is called VIBES and it gets people from all over south India. We hold an inter manipal university cultural fest called UTSAV and includes a variety of cultural events and each college is scored based on how much they win and finally a trophy is given to the winner. We have another huge even called MIST which is our national level sports meet for intermedicos.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
For the first 10 ranks or so our university does offer a scolarship based on how much they earn loan facilites are avalaible from the SBI bank beacuse our college has a link with them.
