I was accepted more then a week ago,, but I still havn't received the welcome packet. we pay 75 dollars application fees, and 700 dollars for housing and to hold the spot, expect to see welcome packet at least after a week if not overnight, but it didn't happen. Which is why I have to come to this forum and ask you experts all the questions... such as when is the orientation or when is the last day of the semester so I can book my flight according to that. I only have a week before I leave the state but still not sure what Immunization records I need to bring, or what to bring, what not to bring. Oh, one other thing, Ross pay for the hotels for first semester students until they get them the housing, and when I asked at the NY office about my housing, they said it will not be ready until sep 1st, but my flight was booked for aug 31st. And they said I have to pay for the hotel. Anyway, I know this school is new and it will be a awesome carribbean med school in the future but they have to take care these issues first.

It took me two weeks to get my welcome packet. AUA is pretty slow about getting stuff to you - unless it's a bill of some kind; get used to it, i guess. We waited 3-4 months to get our comprehensive shelf exam scores.

Orientation dates should be on Medical School Caribbean: AUA Home Page - American University of Antigua College of Medicine (http://www.auamed.org). What-to-bring related information can be found here: AUA Student Government Page (http://www.auasga.org/whatToBring.htm).

AUA usually doesn't pay for independent housing. If you get there early, you should probably book a hotel.
