    Honestly, this decision is very subjective. Everyone has their own priorities; for me, saving time is a major factor in my studies. If you are almost finished with your Bachelors here in the states, I'd personally recommend finishing it up here and then applying to PAK.

    Pakistan does not offer an "MD" degree, however, their equivalent is "MBBS." It stands for, and I am not 100% sure, Bachelors of Medicine and Bachelors of Surgery. If, like many other foreigners, you wish to come back to the states after earning your MBBS, you would have to take and pass the USMLE, followed by a residency. Again, if time is not an issue, I'd recommend finishing your Bachelors here.

    Best Regards, KP.
