    HARDLY. AUA is simply trying to do everything it can to secure California accreditation for its students when the time comes.

    sure, because everyone knows its the facility which makes the med school...

    If you bother to read the article, the only thing it's really talking about it the affiliation with a local hospital, and it sounds an awful lot like it's coming straight from the school's PR department, not great investigative journaling. For now, the fact remains that they have no CA approval, no federal loans, and a student body with lower average stats. No thanks.

    That hospital actually is better than any other in the Caribbean based on what I've seen. So for AUA students to be able to get some hands-on experience there for med 1 and 4 is a good deal. Hopefully California approval won't be far off.

    i thought, you being such a genius and all, you would catch the sarcasm of the title of the thread...must be riding in the ambulance too much

    Well, consider the source...MSNBC and journalism don't often collide in the same sentence.
