    Got accepted to AUA THIS semester, should I go?

    Hey everyone. I have been out of college for a few years now, working, and applied to AUA back in college. I decided to finally complete the application and I got in for THIS semester, like in 2 weeks, to my surprise.

    I know I can save 2 years of my life getting a masters by going to an international med school, but I am worried about AUA since they are a lower tier international med school. I want to avoid Family Practice and Internal Medicine at all costs, and I know the odds are stacked against me going to AUA, but its not impossible to say the least. I was thinking of taking off work for a semester, sitting down for the MCAT, and trying to get into a higher tier international school to better my odds of not getting into a bottom tier residency. But would really make that big of a difference going to Ross over AUA that it warrants me spending an extra semester studying for the MCAT?

    Though the MCAT prep might be useful since I've been out of school for a while and barely remember anything, but I was under the impression that med school is there to prep you for Step 1 so they will teach you everything you need to know? Thanks beforehand for any replies!

    EDIT: Forgot to mention my stats, 2.8 GPA, AUA told me I need the MCAT so I sat down and took it blind and got a 22. I can't get into an American med school regardless of how high I get my MCAT.

If the ACGME and AAMC are correct in their published data, and they achieve a 1-to-1 ratio of US medical graduates to US internship positions during that time period, then all bets are off as far as applying for the Match as a foreign medical graduate.

    Nobody has a crystal ball for exactly how this will all play out, but it is not hard to do the math and come up with a fair idea. (I do not post this to pee in anybody's cheerios, but it is important information for making these kinds of decisions.)
    I appreciate you psychic prediction. Not only did you pee, but you pooped on my cheerios. Do you have an anal sphincter problem? I heard they can implant an artificial one to help ya with that

    Iím sorry you donít find my posts usefulóAll I am merely attempting to do is show the entire truth in regards to what has happened and what is currently happening, rather than allowing people to endlessly post these extremely skewed versions of the truth.
    If you don't like my posts, then donít waste your time reading them.

    NYMD121 - I'm sorry if you feel that what I am saying and infact what those who passed step 1 from AUA are the "Skewed version" of the truth. But the fact is someone has to raise their voice against this blatant nonsense at the school. When infact WE (includes YOU NYMD121 and I) are entrusting thousands of OUR tuition dollars to the school only to find out the faculty are hand in glove with the MSA in the cheating scandals costing the school NBME privileges, rotation spots and numerous frustrating arguments rather than meetings with Dr. Nagra in the middle of class room time.

    I am just voicing my inbuilt frustration which over the 2 years in basic sci was suppressed by the dictatorship Nagra's Manipal faculty and the MSA imposed over the student body where infact the resources and time lost were not only intolerable but criminal by a huge margin (you can even refer to the Provost's threats to fire the faculty members).

    But as YOU said NYMD121 - my frustration is not over the school which HAS made strides in rectifying the mistakes but over the guilty members responsible for destroying the lives of many students at AUA.
