    so confused...please advise

    Advertisements



    hey guys
    i just got an email that i got accepted to AUA and i am besides myself.AUA has been my first choice since i started to research med schools in the caribbean. am excited to pack up and head to the island but for only one thing that's stoppin me... my uncle is a world renowed prof of pathology and he insists i apply to SGU for the 4 yr md program. I finished with a second class lower and SGU made it clear they cant accept me d 4yr md except i have a first class or second class upper.i have applied to SGU for the pre-med but ETS is yet to send my TOEFL result to them and this takes a lil over 2weeks. i have 14days from today to accept AUA. PLEASE ADVISE. My dad is paying for my school and he respects his brother's opinion, i do too but studying medicine is the most important thing to me.thank you

    AUA is pretty lenient when it comes to sending in your deposit...I think I was a few weeks late...just stay in touch with them and keep them informed of what's going on and you should be fine.

    not sure of being accepted there

    i was accepted to pre-med3 in AUA becos i dont have org chem.i dont want a situation whereby i lose the admission to aua and i dont get SGU either. though i also applied to a school in romania as a back up. - do u think its wise to save a seat@ AUA and defer till sept at least by then i'd av heard back from SGU. ANY THOTS?

    If they put you in premed 3 at AUA, then chances are you won't get accepted to SGU. So just stick with what you got and attend premed 3 at AUA.

    Many state universities offer ORGO I & II (w/ labs) over the summer, if you're interested in saving time and money. Why not do that?

    deferral to sept 09

    you were right NWS, SGU gave me the boot even tho i applied to pre med.i think to defer to sept @ AUAis the best thing to do.i called the new york office to ask if i can be allowed an extra week to arrive on the island but i was told it cant happen. i cant get a flight out anytime before the 10th of May but am on the airline's list for the 11th. it was always goin to be a battle anyway. i got accepted thurs last week and the airline's seats are almost always all gone a month in advance to the present date.anyway i feel the admin didnt understand this too cos they probably think its as easy as getting a flight from the u.s. its a total of 17hours 35mins(no direct flights) from where i live in africa.
    i would love to take the summer classes and get my ORGO but such classes are non existent here. u either enroll for a full programme when semester starts or nothing. thanks guys for posting. am truly grateful
