    jabee, i have read the same thing on here, but very few people have supposedly done this. from what i have read on the davenport website, two classes, which would be the equivalent of full time would be approximately $3,000 per semester and approximately $5,000 per year.

    you can get a lot more information by going to Davenport University

    So you're wondering if people taking classes from Davenport University also use that money to help pay for AUA?

    there are quite a few aua students in the Davenport program. Taking a single class a semester gets you $8,000.

    Oh, and request to speak with someone by the name of W S when calling the school. 1-800-203-5323.

    Davenport currently has approximately 650 medical students that participate in their program.

    2 classes is considered full-time, with each credit hour approximately $450. Tuition is approximately $2,900 per semester, with a FA allowance of up to $10,250 per semester. $10,250 - $2,900 - cost of books = Your reimbursement. So you are looking at a reimbursement of approximately $7,000 per semester, which can be a great source for Federal student aid. Upon the start of the semester, your reimbursement is given to you 4 to 6 weeks later.

    The total length of a semester is 14 weeks. As I said before you have to take two classes to remain full-time; however, the good news is that you can take 1 class for 7 weeks and the second class the next 7 weeks - that way you do not have to take both classes at the same time for 14 weeks.

    The admissions requirement is:
    2.75 GPA of higher
    2 Letters of Rec.
    GRE or other graduate exam

    If you have not taken a graduate exam, they will allow you to take up to 3 classes. Once you have take up to 3 classes, you cannot take more courses until you give them a GRE score, MCAT score, etc.

    Also, in order to remain in the course, you must maintain a GPA of 3.0 or higher. The good news is that the person I spoke with said that only 7-8% of all medical students that have participated in their online program were not able to maintain a 3.0.

    i am not sure if i got into saba or not. they screwed up my application so bad. to be brief, they must have been looking at someone else's transcript when interviewing me as well as when evaluating my application. they thought i had an undergrad gpa of 2.3 or something like that. i was denied two times by them, and each time i had to request an appeal. my gpa was/is 3.65 for undergrad with a huge list of credentials and amazing lor's. oh, they even kept requesting more and more lors. wierd. i really just got sick of dealing with them. the guy who interviewed me, whom i believe was the director of the program, made me not want to go there anymore. he was a, well, you know the word. so i said the heck with saba and applied to aua. i demanded saba take me off any of their mailing lists, and havent dealt with them since.

    that is dealing with saba in a nutshell.

    Sorry to hear about your experience. When I applied there, I did not receive a response for about two months. So, I called. The lady said I should have gotten something. I asked her what the veerdict was and she said she is not sure. Then two days later I got an e-mail thane a letter denying me. I called to find out what was the reason for my denial. I was then forwarded to someone in admission who said, 'we are concerned about your grade in nutrition, which was a C'. You are concerned about a nutrition grade of C ten years ago. This is not even required for your program. She said but it is a science course. This was my only science grade of C. Then she said we can forward your application to our sister school.

    The main reason while I was even interested in them b/c I have GI Bill money that I could use there.
