    Anyone thinking about going to AUC Needs to Read this!!

    Hello,

    I am an former AUC student, who is stuck with an MD, $250,000 in debt, but no residency. I completed the first half of basic sciences and loved the school scoring a 225/96 on my step 1. I thought that it was amazing to be living out my dream as a doctor even though I could not get into a US medical school. However then I hit the total mess called clinical sciences at our school. Scheduling rotations was a disaster and my academic advisor who was supposed to help me schedule my rotations never responded to my emails or phone calls. In fact both my pediatric and ob-gyn cores were not schedule until november and december of my fourth year. The clinical science sites were very diverse with some being very good and some being very bad and extremely malignant towards students. I did not match into a residency at the conclusion of my fourth year so I took a prelim year. From that point forward AUC was done with me. Despite calling and emailing several of the schools deans and faculty members for advice (none of which answered or returned any of my calls or emails to date), I received no help or even advice regarding how to maximize my chances of obtaining a residency program in the future. When I finally did get in touch with one of the staff members at the clinical science office they told me that they could not help get me in contact with the faculty members at the various clinical sites I rotated at. They did however say that they would review my personal statements (finally some help). They made no mention of when to submit them or any mention of a deadline. When I emailed it to them two weeks later in July they never responded, after giving them a week they I called them back and they told me that they would not review it because it is July and they are busy doing other things (that is the AUC I know). Also when talking to said staff member about how many people that graduate from AUC do not receive residency she responded "quite a few" which is interesting because I have never heard any data about the percentage of people placing in residency only about that "100% first time usmle pass rate". This seems very misleading on their part.

    Listen, I know that I am bitter and that bitter people post on these boards complaining about things, but that is not why I am posting this.

    Anyone thinking about going to AUC needs to know that at least the second half of school is a total mess and that while some people have extremely positive experiences and match into some very nice spots, just as many have nightmare experiences like I just described. The scary part is you have no real say in the matter it is like rolling the dice at craps.

    ANYONE THINKING ABOUT GOING HERE NEEDS TO BE VERY CAREFUL BECAUSE YOU WILL PAY AN ASTRONOMICAL FEE FOR MEDICAL SCHOOL AND THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOU ONE BIT.
