    Advertisements



    I am transferring to AUA in may 2010 as a 4th semester from Ross . I was wondering if anyone else from Ross would be transferring in May?

    Just curious, if you don't mind, why are you transferring so late in the game? Academics?

    And, why did you choose AUA?

    Yup! Academics. Wasn't able to pass the comp. Most of the schools don't take transfers. They make you start from the beginning except AUA.

    when Does AUA offer the comp? end of 4th or end of 5th. At Ross I know its the 1st week of 5th. Does that means you have to retake the entire micro?ouch..

    You take the comp at the end of 4th. If you don't pass it, it's offered 2 more times in 5th. You have to pass it in order to be certified for step 1 by the school.

    Damn, that sucks. Did you just not prepare well enough or was it that hard? Be honest.

    Also, how were you studying for your tests? Cramming or actually learning the material?

    I did not get a chance to prepare for the first 2 times. The third time I did prepare but the exam was way harder than the first 2 times. And i missed by a couple of points.

    I am not one of those individuals who can cram. Things have to make sense to me but with that being said I can't concentrate for 4 hrs straight either. I get so tired midway during the exam that my thought process slows down

    I think my inability to concentrate for that long and the added stress that it was my last chance got to me. But now I have gotten another chance and I intend to make the most of it. It's just a bit unnerving to go to the island again and get familiar with a new setup.

    Hi. I am in the same boat only I didnt have to repeat any semester at AUA. Good luck! I had health issues during my entire 5th semester and unable to pass the comps...missed it by one point...ouch. They woudnt let me miss the comp and take it the following semester. I HAD to take it consecutive semesters and my last attempt was right after I was hospitalized so go figure.
