Dawn Education Expo 2007

The Dawn Education Expo starts today and boasts of assembling over a 100 leading foreign and local universities. Having been to their expo last year, the biggest crowd was around the UK universities.

If you’re a student and plan on going, all you’ll need is your college/university card to get in. I’m wondering exactly how many students it really helps. And how many truly take advantage of the opportunities provided.

Feel free to post reviews through comments.

    We got there showing a business card. They took the business card and allowed us inside. How they came to know if it was our card ?

    What about US colleges? No one wants to come here anymore? I was one of the last ones from Dubai being a pakistani to come here… since then, i have only heard students wanting to goto UK. Can anyone explain why? I have my theories but can’t prove it lol..

    It’s more of a degrading process just trying to get the US visa.

    This year’s exhibition has 1 hall for PK, 1 for the UK and 1 for AU. And the most rush I saw was at the UK one.

    Well I think the response was great. DAWN Education Expo was very sophisticated and clean. I also visited “Fuelling Pakistan” as well. I wonder why no one here covered MUSLIMS Big, Bhambore Shopping Festival and Festival of Nations which happened last week. They were nice as well.

    I went to Education Expo last year I didn’t like it.
    Overall they are not good expositions that are taking place.
    All we have is people who want to take students money (which is fine) but no seminars or anything informational about what is going on.
    Why were there no seminars held about students who have recently gone abroad and succeeded or failed in their studies? Why no seminars on how to pay for studying abroad (thats why most go to UK and not the US)?
    That would have been a huge help to the students.
    Same issue was for the Dawn Book Fair last year.
    They only sold books. They should have had some authors reading, etc.
