    Thought I would provide a little more info here. I just started at Saba two weeks ago (May 2010) and have had a family emergency back home. That coupled with the fact that I don't really like the teaching style here at Saba is making me re-think coming back. I am taking a leave of absence from Saba but my Dean also suggested that I may like the teaching style at AUC (apparently it's very different)

    So my transfer is not related to academics at all since I haven't even written a single test, I was hoping to chat with someone that has done this before or is currently in their first semester at AUC.

    Thanks!

    Dr W an immunology prof and dean at Saba used to teach at AUC, and Dr. L a path teacher at Saba used to teach at AUC as well, and some of the Profs @ AUC used to teach at Saba, so I am curious too....
