    AUA vs MUA and Cali Approval

    Advertisements



    Hey folks,
    I guess asking which school would you rather attend AUA or MUA is a futile question since most people on an aua forum are going to side with their school but i was wondering if anyone could give some unbiased feedback. Also, I have heard that AUA is currently in the PROCESS of applying to cali approval? if that is so, what does that mean? does that mean they are keeping in touch with the cali board and will be arranging a visit soon? thank you for input!

    Cali board was down here and met with us last night actually. They said they were going to recommend to the gov to give us approval. (Liked the school, liked the academics, etc) As for the actual timeline, someone asked if 2012 would be a likely date..they said it would probably be much sooner than that. But of course we couldn't get an exact date.

    LOL

    i was at that meeting last night. the people there were not the cali board. one of the guys is an ex congressman and the other is part of admin of a med school in cali

    they said that they were impressed and see us getting approved but who knows what their words mean. don't jump the gun and think we're getting approved because of what these 2 people said. you have no idea what their ties are (if any) and if they are pertinent to our situation

    i am optimistic about cali approval but who knows when that might happen even if it does

    I took their words to mean they were the "inspection" people for the board. Their visit is necessary in the approval process. While you're right..they aren't the actual "board" they certainly seemed to be affiliated with them. At least that's what I took away from there..

    from what we were told last sem by P B, the first round of scheduled visits would be around may-june. HinduDOc is right about the info provided above. the two people were not associated with Cali board but were the person who might help AUA get this approval. I think by the time Cali visit aua, the new campus will be in better shape. I am also very optimistic about aua getting cali.

    To the OP, aua applied for cali in march of 2008 (i think).
