Mahatma Gandhi Mission's (MGM) Medical College, Kamothe, Navi Mumbai
It takes about 5 mins by rick from Khandeshwar Railway station (Harbour Rly) to reach MGM Medical College, though you may have to spend an enormous amount of time reaching the station, especially if you live in South Mumbai or the Western Suburbs. You may have never noticed it, but it is located right opposite the McDonalds where you stop to have your morning snacks on your way to Lonavala or Pune, i.e., where the expressway starts.

This used to be the problematic area. Students of this college couldn't give the Maharshtra PG exam and thus reducing the options drastically. But, with the introduction of NEET it's been resolved and even all your options for studying abroad are open.
Nothing special about the crowd as such. It’s the usual crowd found at most of the colleges. All sorts of people can be found here. Just get into a group where you feel the most comfortable, be it bookish, irresponsible or a combination of both.
Very lenient. 75% attendance is recommended and expected but they let you go off with a 50% (But letters are sent to your parents so you may face problems at home). However, if the attendance goes below the 50% mark, you are made to sit for extra cover lectures.
The canteen is just about average. Food is tasty but due to cleanliness issues you wouldn't feel like having it. The mess food, however, is best not sampled.
McDonalds, Little world - Kharghar are pretty close. Malls, restaurants, hookah bars and clubs can be found in Kharghar. If you are looking for more options, a variety can be found if you travel to Vashi (which is not very close from here) or Belapur.
Ex-tasy, a cultural festival at MGM Medical College, which is usually celebrated around March and primarily organized by the second years is real fun. All the major events such as band performances, games, contests, prizes, DJ nights can be enjoyed.

The biggest disadvantage of MGM Medical College for Mumbaikars is that it is very, very far - and you wouldn't want to travel so much after paying the exorbitant fees that they charge. The first year out here is tough-they keep you on your toes but you learn quite a bit. The second year is more relaxed and this is the time to have fun. The third year clinics, teaching and practical work is very interesting and the faculty is fabulous - we would say 3-3.5/5. The four and a half years become both fun and interesting, relaxed and challenging. Go for it if you don't mind traveling, you wont regret it.
