    AUA vs MUA

    Advertisements



    Hey guys,
    I have not really found any differences between these schools, accept for the following exceptions:

    -AUA applied for California approval vs MUA has not!
    -AUA is more expensive
    -MUA has been around longer and better known!
    -MUA has a pretty good track record when it comes to residencies placements

    Please give me your opinions on differences between these two schools: loans, island, professors, etc.........

    -I don't think MUA is better known than AUA, probably the other way around with how aggressively AUA markets itself.
    -Residency placements..don't know without hard numbers to back anything up.


    Both are about on par but AUA is on a better island for what it's worth and has a large campus under construction - don't think MUA does.

    They're both good schools to consider if you can't get into a California approved school. Loan availability seems to be a big deal now in both places - you should call both Financial Aid Offices.

    Both schools are completely unknown when it comes to applying for residency - you're on your own either way.

    How old a school is - is not a good indicator of where that school is going. There are schools older than both AUA and MUA-N - that have gone no where. AUA is growing and the management is forward looking in that respect. From what I have heard from inside sources at MUA-N they have had a very high faculty turnover of late and may not have filled these position yet.

    I call it like I see it. I am not paid by ValueMD or any school. Nor do I recruit for any school.

    Nah bud. Just wondering. As some people have a love/hate relationship when it comes to Ross.
