im currently an MD3 student here at st james. so lets get one thing str8, there was a general concern about those who have graduated over the past years...WHERE HAVE THEY GONE!!? and this was the same question i had raised up as well on many of the school meetings. Well by God's grace, the school FINALLY updated the sjsm.org website. click on the alumni page. there are over 30 successful graduates who are in residency/ those are already practicing.
Now the IMPORTANT thing to remember here is...these people listed on the alumni page...graduated from a class of less than 10(they were the first students at st james...so the numb) so this is a HUGE achievement. dont believe it? google them and find out..thats what i just did!!!!!!
ALSO...the number of students from st james, which includes transfer students from AUC, saba, MUA, ross, gautemala medical, who have signed up for 2009 match are over 30 as well. where did i get this golden information? well...from the owner/president himself. he has been on campus for the past 2 weeks, and will be for another 2 weeks because our school is getting ready to be examined by the holland medical review board, which qualifies us for a bunch of things(only positive of course!!!).
there are over 200 students in clinicals from st james, and right now in basic sciences, we have 55 students in md1, about 30 in md2, 33 in md3, and 52 in md4. thats over 160 students.
our school is legitimate with the known facts, and these facts and stats have sources...i just thought id share them with all of you who are considering this school, or those already here, to not give up, and that our school is actually pretty reputable in comparison to others!!!!!
btw, the md4's who have graduated from basic sciences in april, their class size was around 35. i personally know 8 who have passed(i only knew a handful of that class). scores? 97% was the highest, 92% second highest, and the rest in the 83-88%percentile. these are jsut the ones i know, who i keep in touch with thru facebook
power is in numbers people! the numbers and stats are there!!!!
