    More Questions

    Advertisements



    Hey guys, I have a few more questions.


    1) About food, can you find in St.Maarten most or all of the things you can find in a supermarket in the US?

    2) Is there alot of vegeterian food available in resturaunts and supermarkets?

    3) If you could have taken a class BEFORE medical school that would have helped you alot, what class or classes would it have been?

    4) What is the class size of an incoming class, and what is the size of the class that graduates?

    5) If I start in Aug 06, I know that I wouldn't have classes from May until August of 07, Would I be able to keep taking classes over the summer?

    6) Residencies - Is it harder to get a residency than someone from say SGU if I had the similar USMLE scores and grades?

    thanks guys

    2) Is there alot of vegeterian food available in resturaunts and supermarkets?--yea not too hard---

    3) If you could have taken a class BEFORE medical school that would have helped you alot, what class or classes would it have been?---under water basket weaving

    4) What is the class size of an incoming class, and what is the size of the class that graduates?---depends on the semester last sept was 160ish

    5) If I start in Aug 06, I know that I wouldn't have classes from May until August of 07, Would I be able to keep taking classes over the summer?---DUDE READ THE AUC SITE---WE DONT GET SUMMERS OFF---man, you go 5 semesters back to back with a little break btw each---i have no clue why i am answering this question when you should of read it on the aucmed.edu site

    6) Residencies - Is it harder to get a residency than someone from say SGU if I had the similar USMLE scores and grades?----this has been discussed and beaten to a bloody pulp---so no one really knows--people will claim what ever they feel like claming---hell at the end we are all IMGs however way you flipping look at it

    thanks guys

    If you fail at AUC, SGU, or Ross why not transfer to SMU, if you fail at SMU, why not try another SMU.

    I took Biochem, I am taking genetics now, and I plan to take Gross Anatomy over the summer. Also, I am learning Histology from Wheaters. Helpful or not? and if it is, How much?

    Thanks

    look i took molecular bio, genetics, histology with lab and none of them helped here---

    but if you feel like punishing yourself and enjoy the pain of those classes than be free and take them

    Well, I just thought taking Gross Anatomy and Functional Histology will help me get better grades in my first semester plus ease my adjusting into a new place/school if I'm not TOTALLY swamped with work but I have at least a tiny advantage.
