    Fall 2010

    I think its hard to say at this stage of the game ... AUA accepts applications for Fall semester until August. We should have a better idea on the class size in July/Aug.

    given the economy and the amount of money AUA put into new campus.... I'd say around 5000 plus or minus 2

    Total number of incoming students for Sept 2010 including Vet, Nursing, AICASA (undergraduate) and College of Medicine will be about 350 or so. I'd estimate we'll have about 250 starting in Basic Sciences.

    250?????????????

    What happened to having only 120 students per semester. When this clinical nonsense started I was informed that AUA is going to regulate the number of students coming into basic sciences. I mean doesnt it make sense to see 120 kids through medical school rather than taking more than what you guys can clearly handle.....or let me guess...you suspect that the rotation spots will be increased by the time these students by the time they graduate. Now let me think...where have I heard this before????

    I think it's strange too. They accept more people knowing before hand that X number of students will fail out or leave for personal reasons. They just want our money, but hey, that's what Caribbean schools are all about. Just study hard and pass your steps and you will do just fine.

    We limit each classroom to sit ~120 students and each section of any class to ~120 students to allow them better access to professors and academic support. We've had the same sized classes in September for the past 3 years. In fact I think Sept 2009 was the smallest incoming class since 2006.

    I was a little confused with that post too, seeing as he said there will be ~250 incoming.
