    To new students of MUA..

    Advertisements



    for new students, I compiled a list of what is available to you (supermarkets, transportation, laundry,... ) and what to bring... This is from my own experience, and if there are comments or changes, please PM me and I will make the appropriate changes or updates.

    Thank you

    i want to welcome all new students, you've made a great choice!.remember some people on here have their own agenda, being that they are incompetent and immature, and can only bad mouth our campus even though they've never set foot on it or even spoke to a single student, they go to inferior schools themselves and try to steer potentional students away from us so they can feel better about themselves such as saffron rice person good luck to all!

    I don't really know what you mean by that statement, and I really don't care... I do know that majority of the people that come onto this forum are mature adults, and want information. I will give them that information to the best of my knowledge, and they must take the information and make their own choice. We are given free will, and we must choose to use that free will to search, investigate, and to make choices dependent on how it will fulfill our goals.

    Have a nice day

    ocean 24, I earned my grades through hard work and determination even with my test anxiety. I resent the fact that you state otherwise... I don't appreciate it and will not tolerate it. If you have something to say to me personally, then say to me email to email, and not hide behind a username. my email is atgtaz@hotmail.com.

    as long as he/she (md90) passes the boards and gets into rotations by the "end of the summer/very early fall", it really wont affect the big picture.

    taking and passing the test now versus passing the test in the summer will land you in the 2008 match regardless.

    a chronic happening

    This is the norm.A guy posts about a school, then people who are close to the mgt pile on him with personal abuse.I will not dignify abuse with a counter abusive post.But I also understand the compulsion of certain students , who are stuck here, and cannot but defend the school to be in the good books of the CEO.Thats understandable, I do take their anger in my stride.Actually I hope all success to them, professionally and in their personal life.

    But I do care about newbie students who have landed at a school whose officials have been accused of, not arranging for rotations for students who have paid their rotation fees.Thats highly unethical and in most civilized countries, that counts as a civil offence and a criminal offence.Pls find those posts in this forum, where students of this school have made this accusation.That in itself, is a red flag.A big red flag.

    As I do my clinicals in a CA, I feel blessed that I was lucky to go to a school that did not limit my ambition to a handful of states.That is what I want to pass on to newbies.My plea is,Join a year late, but pls join a school that does respect you and does justice to your talent.For all you know, I probably know less than md90 and billybilly, but I will practice in CA or NY or Texas, and unfortunately, they will be denied this option, even though they may not be heading that way in the first place.But oppurtunity denied is denial nonetheless.

    To all new and aspiring medical students, if you have landed here by some quirk of fate,Pls read my old posts, that will lead you a list of schools are that are really good,are accepted in 50 states and have a solid track record.

    Its never too late, your present choices will decide your future.All the best.Rejoice, you are only starting!!

    Counter abusive??.. think again...

    This is the norm.A guy posts about a school, then people who are close to the mgt pile on him with personal abuse.I will not dignify abuse with a counter abusive post.But I also understand the compulsion of certain students....
    I'm not being counter abusive... I do not like when people talk about me and do not even know who and what I am. To be in medical school was a goal for me, and to have completed two years is another achievement. Every goal that I have achieved has been through hard work, persistence, and determination, and I have done it with the help of my parents, my brother and his family, and finally on my own. I have to endure comments and behavior of those like "ocean24" to be in the position that I am today.

    Md90 (anu) for someone that is waiting to take her boards you sure have enough time on your hands to post so much excellent advice on this forum. People are mature and hopefully they do a good search and investigate this school prior to starting. I do wonder if your belief that the school did an excellent job teaching you and prepairing you for the boards why is it that you completed your basics in december but have yet to take the boards. No one from your class has passed the boards yet-- even those that actually earned there grades ( like Matt ). Were you not an excellent student during basics. I thought you got all A's and worked so hard. Perhaps it was the known fact that your belief of passing was befriending ever professor and the head dean to ensure you get that "passing grade". It doesn't seem like it helped you much now since well your still siting home studying to pass those pesky boards i guess maybe if you kiss behind still someone will let you slip through. I think about 2 people have passed the boards from MUA-B one of which was the guy that taught pharmacology. Please do correct me if i am wrong about that. People usually take them in about 2 months if not less after completing the program.
    "Ocean24" you can not speak for things that you do not know. I do not have to respond to you, but feel that you need to be "enlightened." I have been always nice and helpful with no questions asked.. but that changed when I noticed people taking advantage of my kindness. I have had students ask me on what to bring to Belize, and this information was written during my breaks. There are those who "fly" through life with no struggles, unfortunately I am not one of those persons. And if the teachers "gave" me those grades, then why did I complete one semester later? I did not have "old exams" given to me or "party friends" tell me of questions that were on the exams. No student at the school helped me, but wanted me to help them. The teachers especially Drs. Z, M, A observed me during exams, asked oral questions, and showed me different techniques to study and to perform on the exams. Even now, as the exam date approaches, I have seen positive results on practice exams but feel the nervousness and the possibility of failing the exam. I have tried to remain calm and not have the exam "consume" me. It is hard... especially knowing that it means so much to the medical student. Do not talk or make assumptions that you have no knowledge... I know that it can be difficult to do so; I'm tired of people talking about me as if they know me... no one but my immediate family and my closest friends truly know me. Then again, only GOD (Lord Krishna) and myself really know me as I speak to him every day. I try to live by this quote...


    “Peace, it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, no trouble, or no hard work…..it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.”


    Have a wonderful day!!!
