I received this email from our Alma mater and decided to share it with all of you,
Dear Manipal Family : Students, Teachers, Staff, Alumni, Friends and Patrons,
It is that time of the year when the media evaluates popular perception / ranking of colleges and schools across India. One such survey that is going on right now is the one being done by India Today Magazine. In the list of top medical colleges, we have Kasturba Medical College, Manipal.
This is a popular vote and a chance to express our support and voice our opinion, not just for KMC Manipal but for the phenomenon of “Manipal” itself. Feel free to express your vote and do it now ! Will take just a couple of minutes, all you need to do is : click on the dot next to KMC Manipal, then fill in your name, mobile no and email ID and the verification code at the bottom of the page (link pasted below). Just 72 hours left for the voting to end. Let us vote in thousands !
The rankings will reaffirm our commitment to excellence and will reflect your achievement – whether you studied at Manipal in the 1950’s or are about to start your higher education in the months to come. KMC remains the only non-government, non-missionary medical college among the 300 – odd medical colleges in the country to feature in the top 10 rankings over the past decade – speaks volumes of the collective efforts put in by all of you. Thanks ! Now vote !
Pls pass this on to all your family and friends. Every vote counts and would only make you prouder !
