    Is AUA going to have 2 semesters now?

    Hey, I have heard some rumours about how the semesters will change from 3 to 2. Is that true? Are they going to do the same thing like in Manipal? Blah, if its true that means more time on the island!!!!

    I heard the same thing. The campus in Antigua will be moving from 3 semesters to 2. If that is true how soon?

    if this actually is true then its certainly a big step for AUA...more time for current and future students to enjoy and hopefully this will limit class size..

    I don't know Vick, some people don't want to be on the island for that long. Assuming pre meds will also have to follow the same rule, 2 Years doing pre med, then 2 years doing med- definitely not something that I want to do especially after undergrad. Maybe other people will find it convenient, easier for high school students to settle in for sure. However, for those of us who want to go in, get it done and get out in the shortest time possible-well it's not the greatest news!
