    AUC Merp Jan'13


    Hey everyone. Long time lurker, but the lack of MERP threads on AUC made me finally create an account. Anyway I have been accepted to the MERP program for january 2013 semester (actually classes begin dec 4). Anyway I had some questions about this. After doing some research it turns out that the program is combined with ross MERP on the Bahama campus (Seahorse plaza, freeport). I tried contacting AUC admins about some info but they havent been picking up for some reason. From my knowledge here are some facts about it:

    • It is a 4 month program with 16 credits
    • You take watered down med school version of Anatomy and Histology, Biochem, and molecular biology, Microbiology and Immunology, and finally Physio and Biophysics
    • Program is offered on the Ross' old bahama Campus

    However that's all I know about it. Now I have some other questions if there are any students who have taken it or are in the jan '13 class

    • How does the tuition process work? When is it due and how can we get that money?
    • Are there dorms on campus? If not where do we live and how do we pay for the monthly rent?
    • The Seahorse plaze sounds like a pretty shady place to have school lol
    • I heard there is a complicated process with the visa to the bahamas and require several good standing records and return tickets (***?)
    • What if my dad wants to come drop me off, where does he stay?
    • Where do we buy books? Where can I find past students who sell them?

    Thanks for any help guys and I am still deciding whether to go to MERP or no for AUC.

    Hey, This MERP thing is totally new at AUC since the takeover by DeVry. So, not many people will know anything about it. I would look on the Ross forum and maybe you can get more info.

    Only advice I can give is think long and hard about if you truly want to do this. The Caribbean students are already having a tough time competing as more US schools are being created and not as many residencies being created. There is supposed to be a 1-1 ratio around 2017 and that would be your matching year, so it will be even harder.

    I know it is not advice you want, but if your grades are good, maybe study hard and retake MCAT or do a Masters to be more competitive. I wish you luck as you decide.
