    What do you hate the most about AUA?

    Advertisements



    There a lot of things that I hate about this School...
    1. I hate the attitude of the stupid secretaries. Half of them barely finished high school. You have to do ALL their work, because they dont even know how to do it. The secretaries (from reguistration office) have stated that "they PREFER to DIE before seeking help from one of us as Doctors".

    2. Most students feel disrespected when handling information with Fianancial Aid Staff. The incompetence of the New York office can only be summed in one word IGNORANCE.

    3. Everyday you feel harrased by the security guards that always approach to you in a threatening and disrespecting matter. whose always last words are "You are in our country and you do what we tell you to do".

    4. The mold growing in the library after the water damage 4 months ago and they wont do anything about it.

    5. 75 % of the students don't have a bachelor or MCAT.

    6. If you want to obtain a good grade you have to talk with the "right people" or be around them to obtain helpful information.

    7. You have to pay exorbitant amount of money for everything; housing, parking sticker for a non existing parking lot, "health insurance" (that nobody in the island accepts)...

    8. They will make your life misserable in order to get a loan. If you are a transfer student who had Sallie Mae you will have to start the payments in a year, because theres no deferment code to save you.

    9. I hate the fact that there are so many religious group next to the library using their bass and piano so loud you can feel it in your body. When you ask politely to lower the music they'll scream at you.

    10. The bathrooms in the old campus are always dirty and almost always out of order.

    11. The promise of the construction of the new building is 5-10 years ahead, if you look at the brochure it's only a futuristic drawing.

    I agree with the other complaints though, they were right on. And sad. But like someone else mentioned, AUA's suckiness motivated me to study harder. And I hope the same for you so you can beat those MCAT-deprived individuals...

    It is really frustrating to hear students complain about AUA. I am a 9th semester student working my tail off to make a good name for AUA and all of the students to follow me on rotations. I think that sometimes you have to look at what you are there to accomplish. Realize that having the opportunity to attend medical school is a great thing. If it were not for Carib Med schools, many of us would not have the chance to pursue the dream of becoming a physician. Please keep in mind that all of the negativity posted on this website everyone in the world can see. And the more you run down AUA and the education we receive, the less respect we get on clinicals. We are all working towards a common goal....just remember that.

    I agree Mr. Tipton, however, the behavioral science teachers won't. I must practice what they teach.
