    The big 4 have company

    Advertisements



    American University of Antigua (AUA) College of Medicine is approved to participate in the U.S. Federal Direct Loan Program.

    I am so happy to be a part of this school. It's crazy hard and there's no time to slow down but getting Title 4 is such a relief for so many of us.

    I apologize I haven't replied to private messages, but it's going well. I still recommend BTMD program if you're accepted to it.

    Good luck to all the new applicants!

    How valid is this claim that AUA makes? Back in 2011 When AUA was less than 10 years old it claimed it was approved in all 50 states. If you look up the state legislation, a lot of States don't approve med schools <10 years old and some states don't approve schools less than 15-20 years old.

    I hope what AUA claims to have gotten the title 4 loan is valid.

    The document you've provided may show a "federal loan code" for AUA. Apart from that, it is incomplete - no graduation info, no retention info etc..which means school hasn't disclosed the info.

    I find it interesting that AUA chose not to disclose info regards to graduation rate and retention.

    The pdf. still doesn't answer how AUA fits along side AUC, ROSS and SGU. Sorry if I am sounding like a skeptic but no way AUA fits in the same level as Ross and SGU...never.

    What's the number of people dismissed academically due to comp 79% requirement?
    What's the number of 4th years in a holding pattern (or on leave) due to comp 79% requirement?

    That means AUA only caters to Manipal i.e., rich kids who can pay their way through their medical education in manipal campuses in India...come to the states for clinicals/residency. The comp shelf requirement does not apply to them..yet these kids enjoy the luxuries of title 4 etc...I don't see how this really benefits the traditional US student studying in the caribbean.
