    Transfer Possibilities

    Advertisements



    I have returned from a marathon visit to several Caribbean schools; some very good and some not so great. But, they all have more than two rented rooms and are paying their professors. I know of two former classmates who started over at Lublin in Poland in the last month. Here is my best advice for the Caribbean:

    (1) If you did only first semester at MUA-B like me, START OVER. If you have near a 3.0 undergrad, consider AUC, MUA Nevis-both nice campuses and strong academics. You can get FFEL loans at AUC but it is more expensive than Nevis. SGU and Saba are almost impossible to get into these days but worth a try-I think one former classmate might be there. Ross has a big, nice campus on a third world island. You will have to struggle for a classroom seat with about 300 others-also you can get FFEL loans. These are all the better schools with accreditations; you will get strong instruction and have a future.

    (2) If you have St. Chris baggage and only did second or thrid semester at MUA-B, I also recommend that you start over, somewhere.

    (3) If you are further along and don't want to start over, the following will take you with a grade report or the promise of a transcript
    AUA, St. Martinus
    No questions asked: Spartan, IAU (both on St. Lucia-IAU is small and rents six or so rooms in a big bldg, Spartan has an actual large bldg and small library), St. James, All Saints or Xavier
    I called CAHSU if you want to venture to Belize-same deal, no questions asked.

    GOOD LUCK TO ALL, Yossarrian

    Arrow NO,no,NO

    FOLKS!!..there's "no" reason to transfer, guys, there's ALREADY MUA BELIZE STUDENTS SEEKING RESIDENCY AND MAKING INTERVIEW ROUNDS, THE SCHOOL IS IN IT'S 6TH YEAR OR SO, AROUND 20 SEMESTERS UNDER IT'S BELT. these transfer rants are pointless, they have no merit, completely bias and cant be substaniated for squat. i feel sorry for immature students who cannot sustain good grades and can only feel better about themselves by dragging my alma matar through the mud.

    what? as hard as a US school?

    i've read a few threads on transfering and a lot of students transfer because they think "the grass is green on the other side" which may be true in a sense (better reputation, more clinical sites, better residencies) but transferring is only going to put red flags on your file when it comes time to be licensed. some states are very picky about this, CA one of them.

    if it is your heart's desire to transfer to a more reputable school, start over.

    Message to MUA-B Administration

    We all know that the individual or individuals posting as BillyBill are part of the administration. One recent message states Billy is in Atlanta doing clinicals and the above one that he/she is a graduate. This is a forum for students not school administration. Drs. RS and JS: the first obligation of a physician is to do no harm. You have harmed countless students financially, emotionally and personally. Please do not discourage those of us who want to continue with our professional careers. Yossarrian

    your soo lame

    you are like an "infant", very immature.if you read my post carefully, it states that SOME STUDENTS HAVE GRADUATED. i did NOT ever say i did, sorry buddy, if you failed out of mua belize, it's not easy. maybe medical school was'nt the right fit, and now you are on your way out, i do not think the "owners" have time to respond to your nonsense or this forum, besides they have there own professional website to work with,it has been proven that newbies like yourself are solely RECRUITERS, that is an undisputed fact, you claim to be an "expert" on mua belize, even though you claim to have failed out quite early.

    Whenever a school is getting dissed you can make a bet:

    WIN: An administrator or agent of another school.
    PLACE: Someone who flunked out
    SHOW: Soemone who tranfered from the school getting dissed


    And billybill is right: When the school os getting dissed, the valuemd member will be recently new to valuemd.

    Transfer @ all cost.

    Anyone who wants to transfer from MUA-B has the right to without being berated for his or her personal choice. I attended MUA-B for one semester (without failing a single course), and opted to for my own personal reasons to leave this school and start over @ SMU in Grand Cayman. One of the reasons I sited was because at that time the school's administration was pathologically lying to the students about the fact that the school had a charter when in fact that was not the case. Also, the administration was very vendictive and was too hand on in the student's lives, as if dealing with the poor quality of education at this institution was not enough.

    I am also glad I left because it doesn't seem that the lack of quality at this school has not changed. At this point, I am in my 4th-Year at SMU and am about to successfully graduate and move on to greener pastures.

    My: Advise is to put your self in a better position to achieve your goals. It doesn't have to be SMU that you choose. But, I would strongly suggest SGU, Ross, AUC, Saba, SMU, MUA-Nevis, or even AUA as viable options. However, If it is your intent to attend either of these schools start over fresh with a clean slate, or you will have done yourself a disservice. DO NOT carry and of the MUA-B baggage with you to another institution.

    ---acetre

    P.S. If this post has upset or offended anyone, instead of attacking my post you should ask yourself why you are offended. Is it a) you are administration....b) You realize what I have stated is true, and have too much pride to admit that the truth has been delivered.....c) You have already gone to a point of no return in you stay with MUA-B, and want others to go down with you on the same sinking ship for fear of being alone....or d) You have been brainwashed by the MUA-B administation and have and undying faith in what this school has promised you.....Pick the ONE BEST ANSWER and be real with yourself for once.

    Here I Am Yet Again

    I just wanted to commend students for coming forth and telling the TRUTH about MUA-B.

    Excellent, excellent, excellent post Ace your right on the point with EVERYTHING you said.

    Yosar thank you for being honest.

    Billybill i thought i would post in case someone decided to say that everyone posting was me but in disguise. So please let us all know how everyone that speaks about this school that is not good is a failure yet you alone are the great student that passed everything. I do not want to even get into a debate with you because i am at this point 100% positive of who you are.. sadly i wish you would come out rather then hide and share your health issues, your weight loss secret, and all those lovely stories you like to tell. Yes i do know who you are... and you will face up to everything rest assured everyone does.

    For students, everyone has their stories to tell about how bad some school is for whatever reason and yes grass is greener on the other side but keep in mind that some times there is no grass on the other side while other times it is just that green to make a decision worth it. In the case with Ace it was much greener. When a school forces things upon you then you know that it is a bad choice. I can tell you MUA-B is not a good choice and no matter where you end up it would still be much greener then MUA-B because all their issues, lies, manipulation tactics are not right. Had they have been in the states trust that they would not have existed this long. Oh and as for the "owners" as billybill pointed out visit the island and see who the real owners are and you would be surprised. In regard to the 6 years in existence, it does not take alot to keep a school going when you have "other things" happening on the side.

    good luck everyone,

    Arrow spare us studyhard

    studyhard you were humiliated and disgraced from the school as a pioneer of being EXPELLED. i would advise that you be more fourthcoming about your agenda to drag everyone down with you, you can bash your ex-school and me all you want, but you were the one crying a river when you were told to pack up and get out.i hope that you can come to terms at your FIFTH school (this is an undisputed fact) and refocus and channel your energies in actually studying hard enough to pass a class after 4 or 5 attempts. get with the program and dont bite the hand that fed you a bunch of times.

    Ty

    TY for your lovely post about me. Please say whatever you like about me if it makes you feel better. Remember those the bite the hand that feeds them are usually distressed by the person feeding them. In the case of this school its the lie's. Billybill like i said i know who you are, keep hiding out as you have always done and running away over and over and over again, i am sure you will come to stop one day and i along with many others will be there to see that day come true sooner or later. If you want to say all the bad things about me please by all means go ahead it does not bother me. Good luck

    It would make more sense to answer posts and respond to what people are saying rather then disgrace people's character but apparently you can not defend anything so you resort to tactics like this as you have always done. Hard to change old habits huh.

    No more posts from me even when i stop posting the stories remain the same with this school, perhaps students will read these and have some common sense to not risk their future if the truth is in front of them.
