Should a prospective student be concerned about this college if they offer a place without interview, MCAT, all pre-reqs, etc from a non-trade applicant?
Also how would you compare it to...
All Saints Dominica
American International School of Med - Guyana
Destiny - St Lucia
However, I do not see them listed in the World Health Organization (WHO) database under the country of Belize see:
AVICENNA Directory Medicine – University of Copenhagen
I noticed you are from Dublin. WHO listing is on my list of importance to practice and be recognized globally as a Physician and Surgeon. IMED listing is crucial for USA and Canada licensure. The combination of both listings starts to show some promise!
In addition, the IMED database shows that the school began in 2006 which equals no track history as of yet. Their first batch of graduates should be graduating now so it will be interesting to see where they are getting residencies and subsequent licensure. Too early to say.
St. Eustatius appears to be listed in both. The IMED lsting shows its headquarters in New York which raises my eyebrows a little since it is a Netherland Antilles school wherein it shows a PO box for its address on the Island. However, it was organized in 1999 so should have some kind of track record. Perhaps you can get a graduate to talk to you about it.
With the potential investment in time and money, why not go to a school that has a proven track record?

I was accepted the same way. You know, I dont think its bad as long as they look at your transcript first because your grades in my opinions are what determines if you are able to complete it. I think there is a lot of BASHING of this school however it is listed in IMED and I am going to contact WHO because I heard it will be listed there soon as well. I really just want to make sure they are teaching people well enough to pass USMLE testing. Anyone know that?
I thought WHO list was now being maintained by avienca in denmark?
