    transferring into 4th semester

    Advertisements



    hey guys,

    I am transferring into AUA as a 4th semester after taking some time off for personal reasons. Since all of the dorms are closed, I just found a place at marble suites. Anyone know about this complex, or have opinions on another place to reside?

    If anyone has any advice on what to bring down to AUA just for 4th semester, such as books, equipments, white coat, etc, I would really appreciate it.

    hope some fellow 4ths can lend a helping hand

    they are nice, but overpriced for what you get. Also, no matter where you go in Antigua the mosquitos are a problem, but they are horrible at marble. you can check out Abi Realty Ltd - Long term and short term property for rent for some stuff. There is one a jolly (kinda far from school but the area is upscale and worth the drive) 2 bedroom for 1350.

    I lived in Marble for one semester. HATED IT! The landlord is moody and impossible to deal with. Most of the apartments are older and need renovations. There's huge gaps under the front doors and bugs, centipedes and other various creatures get it. You can find something at the same price for a little more that is much more upscale. The furniture is Ikea-style and falls apart constantly.

    Wasn't there a dengue fever outbreak at Marble?

    Does anyone else remember that?

    b-doc..
    -jolly harbor is a 20+ min drive from [north] campus..
    -for ICM, you'll prob want to bring a steth.. and a bp cuff
    -books.. dr. m goes off his "notes" that seem an awful lot like kaplan's..
    ..and during my 4th.. he sold his "notes" at $50US a pop.
    you might also want to bring robbins..
    ICM notes should suffice
    -white coat will be provided at the end of the semester

    I lived in Marble for 2 semesters in one of the 3 bedroom Units. It was $1800/month. I didn't mind it at all and was comfortable there.

    I'm looking to lease a car for just fourth months and I've gotten an idea that it
    costs around 400 a month which is fine, could anyone give me some reputable
    people who lease or companies that I could contact once I get there Monday. Thanks for your help guys.
