Terna Medical College (TMC), Nerul
Generally the first preference among private colleges but beats Somaiya by a small margin and many students who find travelling a problem do not opt for it.
Terna Medical College is located very close to Nerul railway station (Harbour Rly.). Taking a rick (5 mins) or walking (12 mins) are the best means to reach the college from the station. So no problems once you get to Nerul station (which itself is a feat enough for non-Navi Mumbaikars)
Infrastructure is not like the way you would expect a private college (go have a look at DY Patil if you don’t agree) to have but it is manageable. There is a gymkhana but it is not maintained very well.

Faculty is good when compared to other colleges. Teachers are helpful.
Students are usually taken in batches to the Vashi General hospital, Meenatai Hospital and the college hospital Terna Medical. The college hospital is generally not that crowded so the other hospitals are used.
Crowd here is pretty decent.
Those who failed to make a mark in CET usually take admission over here because it is under Mumbai University. You will get the nerds and also the cool crowd.
Canteen here is not that good. It is spacious but the food sucks. It is not at all hygienic and believe it or not people have been known to puke in their plates after eating.
There are malls around here - Inorbit, Center One and Raghuleela (All of them in Vashi). Good restaurants are also found in Vashi only. There is also Masala Chai outlet over here. But once you enter medicine, you will realize that hangouts won’t matter much.
Attendance is strict as in all medical colleges and students do attend as they have to be with the same teachers for 5 years.
Apart from the AIIMS festival in which students from all over India participate, there is the annual college festival called AKANSHA.

The only problem here is travelling because the college is far away from Mumbai and non-Navi Mumbaikars might find it a task to reach the college. Otherwise life here is good according to medical college standards.
