    AUIS VS St James

    Advertisements



    Hey all,

    I applied to a few schools, two schools which I have been accepted to are St James and AUIS (Sint Eus.). I am wondering pros and cons of each school, already knowing that I paid St James $1000 to reserve my seat.

    I have heard that Sint Eus is getting ACCM accreditation which help with NY and CALI residency spots, and St James is currently OK'd for Cali as well (after practicing elsewhere for a year). I also hear that Sint Eus has more match spots, and does not deliberately flunk half the class in semester 3, as St James does, because of approximately having 15 match spots and then a waiting list.

    I am not sure if the above is true, it anyone would elaborate it would be greatly appreciated.


    Thanks.

    ALSO: is there a recent match list that is available from AUIS, if not than the most recent one.

    scroll to bottom, 61 matches vs St James (approx. 30)

    Where did you get that students graduating from St. James are ok to practice in CA after practicing elsewhere for a year? To my knowledge students can't practice in Ca until after practicing for 10 yrs in another state.

    AUIS has very small classes in their basic sciences (<15 students per class) and lots of rotation sites available (>400) but they also accept transfer students into their clinical program (which currently ~150 students) so they don't have a waitlist for rotations. Doesn't seem like they try to fail their students...it wouldn't make sense for them to do so. I don't know much about St. James as I have not applied there and didn't do any research on the school.

    I would chose AUIS over St. James mainly because of the number of residency placements they have. AUIS hasn't listed their 2014 residency placements yet which is a bit strange. I'm curious to see how many students matched in 2014.

    AUIS 100%
    Most of the professors here actually care, student body is not so bad
    It's a caribbean school so you can't expect much but honestly with all these schools it's all on you
    It does help to have nice professors and it seems like the school is moving forward
    Besides its in st maarten which is way more developed than where st james is at.
    I've done my research and AUIS is simply a better choice in my opinion
