    If only you knew!!!!!!!!

    First and foremost, I suggest to anyone who is even remotely thinking about this "school" to just go ahead and flush your money down the toilet, its more fun to watch it being wasted that way. We all want to be doctors more than each other, each person on this forum is on here because they are willing to go to the extremes in order to get their M.D. degree. I salute you for such dedication, I'm sure that all of you will make the U.S. proud with your M.D. degrees.
    American Global University are three words I hate hearing come in that consecutive order. It brings memories to me that send chills down my spine. There are so many flaws to this school its unbelievable. The school is ran in such an unprofessional manner that it makes me sick to the gut. I have no idea where to start, and if I do, I am sure that I will forget many things, due to the gross number of flaws available all under one roof that is known as AGU.
    Loans - Forget about it. There is no bank that will provide you with loans for this school. Do not waste your time calling any bank in the U.S. in order to ask them for loans to this "institution". What they want you to do is to sign up for online classes at a college in the U.S. and take out those loans and transfer some of those funds to AGU. They pretty much want you to scam a U.S. University in order for them to scam you. I was personally promised Medloan, but that is NOT available for AGU. Unless you are rich, you will not be able to afford this university. If you ever decide to transfer from this university, good luck getting a hold of your transcript, not that you will be able to transfer to any place that is any better due to the lack of W.H.O. listing. That is right the school is not W.H.O. listed.
    Campus & Education - It is true that the size of the campus is not proportional to the amount of education you receive. The campus is not large whatsoever, but that is very acceptable to my standards as long as I get some good old quality education. There lies your problem though. If you really think that you will learn anything from these professors, then you are in for a good laugh. You will go home everyday with handouts that the professor reads in the class. That is not a proper way to educate students, its more of reciting the material. I could easily stay home and read the book and get the same material out of it. No worries though future AGU students, you will stay home plenty of times due to the ridiculous amounts of class cancellations. Classes were scheduled to start on the 7th of September and they did not officially start till the 21st; even when the semester officially started there were still plenty of days that were filled with voids. There is much more to list in this category, but the ideas going through my mind are just getting me nauseated, lets move on if you shall.
    Belize Environment & Activities- This is in no relation to the school, I just want to educate the students on where they are going to end up as future AGU students. As you walk off the plane you get struck with hundred degree weather and humidity that will condensate off your own eyeballs. After you make it through the airport that is no larger than the school campus, you will walk out missing some money out of your pockets due to the entrance fee you have to pay the country. Once settled in, get used to killing bugs day and night especially lizards that always seem to make their way into your apartments. If you do not have the heart to kill bugs, then get ready to live with them. Make sure you are within walking distance to the school, anything over a fifteen minute walk becomes hazardous to your health due to the scolding sun raining those deadly rays at you. The bus sometimes breaks down, again this is nothing against the school; accidents do happen. Now lets talk about fun things to do. No matter who you are and how much socializing you did back in the states or any country you will come from, everybody likes to have fun and go out. Get ready to abandon any idea of fun when you arrive to this place. There are no malls, no theatres, or any sorts of entertainment. You are there to get an education not to have fun; but I personally need to have a little fun every once in a while to keep up my spirit. Let us not forget about the fact that we are away from friends and family and we need some social interaction, it does not help with the low amount of student body that is at the school ranging between 5-7 students.
    I am not telling anyone here not to go to AGU, I just gave you the facts, and you may use these tools in order to asess your decision on whether you want to go or not. I just hate seeing students lied to, and taken advantage of in order for someone to make some money. All we want is some education, and we cant seem to get that without some bad people out there taking advantage of us and leaving us with nothing at the end. I myself am not a rich person nor does my family posses any wealth. I worked hard for my dollar day by day and when someone comes and easily takes my money and leaves me with nothing in return, I tend to get mad about. Good luck future Doctors, and I hope you make the right decision.

    Ilived in FL for 2 yrs and the same applies, be ready to kill bugs, they do get inside daily. I would be more worried about scorpions etc. Do you get them in your apartments? I would also assume there has to be entertainment venues available in Belmopan, surely you can find something!

    Oh ya

    Sorry for the delayed response, but to address your issue of whether you get bugs frequently or not, my answer to that would be yes. I personally would not walk barefoot around my apartment only because the fact that the possibility of stepping on a bug is extremely highly, in fact its bound to happen. And I promise you anything in Belize that is remotely fun is not within walking, or even biking range. Any resorts that are worth your time, lets not forget the ridiculous amount of money you spend are at the very least a 40 minute taxi ride which will get very pricey, let alone the money you will spend there. Any tourist area you can get a hold of will be gorgeous, then again what tourist area isn't, do not forget the tourist prices you will have to pay. You'd think that it is worth sacrificing your social and personal life for medical school, yes I agree, but not this medical school. Then again this is my opinion; I may be a "newbie" on this site, but my opinion is firsthand nonetheless.

    Doctor 30 , it is rather sad when you mix lies with truth! You attacked the country and its people, you are in need of integrity of truth.. You are no authority to speak of AGU or Belize, therefore your statements are deemed false and destructive. If you have the least thread of decency you will not respond but as the lair you are I am expecting a response proving your lack of integrity...
    One blood!!!

    I literarily laughed out loud at your comment. What benefit do I get from tearing on the school. What you sir are trying to do is make me seem as if I'm a bad guy by stating false assumptions where I "attacked the country and its people", so anyone who reads this and your comment gets a false image of whom I am. I lack integrity? The fact that you would use certain psychological methods to make people think I'm a terrible person so my statement has no merit is what lacks integrity. Instead state some benefits that the school has in order to make me look like I am wrong, that is a much better approach. No one here on this forum is two years old and would fall for such an approach, we are all educated adults, and as educated adults we deserve to hear what is good about the school not what is not bad. Stop feeding these people lies and learn that money is not everything in this world. You are taking money from student, do you understand how immoral that is, when a student does not receive what they thought they were going to get in return. If you want to make me look bad, talk about how good the school is, not how bad I am, you only weaken yourself when speak in such a manner.

    You are right ! No two years old are here, but for sure you do complain like one.. The sad bit of your statements are not so much about the school, as it is already known that most offshore medical schools as they are called, truly have there short comings; in fact all known institution world wide have them! however from a perspective of truth; you have not mentioned anything of repute about the institution and that is where your credibility is questioned. Also, it does not appear as though you have first hand knowledge of the institution or the country of Belize, which also nullifies your statements. As a first rate person, I do understand that ppl get disgruntled and might respond with ill will and misguided rhetoric to appease his or her unsatisfied ego, as they might have felt shafted by a person or group of persons, but to make sweeping generalizations , it is clearly deemed a logical foll icy . Others have benefited from AGUSM and many have gone onto achieving their goals, so please dont just throw a tantrum as a two year old would! express yourself yes, but don't plaster lies to feel justified. And no I dont think ppl think you are terrible and neither do I, I just want you to be fair, that's all!
