I am not sure what the point of any of this is. I remember about 4 years ago when I was looking on this board for any helpful information. I remember reading Maa's posts, like this one http://www.valuemd.com/universidad-a...tml#post219005
She was 3 years ahead of me at that time, and now actually behind me. I do not know her/his situation, background, first language, etc., but do know that this person must have unlimited cash sources to be in medical school for what is now about 7 years.
It is easy to say what was a better choice after the fact. We often take chances (coming to the UAG, transferring, etc) and simply do not know how the end will be.
I am not a member of the UAG fan club mostly because of the financial aid dept keeping holds on funds, lack of communication, and general mierda. However, when there was the option to transfer, I saw it as objectively trading UAG mierda for XYZ School mierda. Some things would be better, other things worse. All things considered, it was the best option for me to stay (not necesarily for everyone else, however). In hind sight, it does not seem to have been the best move for maa. However, some have transferred and done well.
I welcome all views; that is how we can make realistic informed decisions. However, solid facts are more useful -good or bad - than whatever the subject of this thread has become.
