Hey everyone,

I have been going to a Caribbean medical school called Windsor U SOM for some time now. I recently got accepted to American University of Antigua (AUA), another Caribbean medical school to finish my clinical clerkships.

Should I transfer?

Windsor's Pro's and Con's:
Pro's: economical approx... 8500 per 12 weeks for clinical rotations
Con's: does not have NY and CA approval. Therefore graduates are limited when it comes to applying for residencies.

AUAs Pro's and Con's:
Pro's: Has NY and CA approval.
Has more successful students????
Con's: Over 18,000 per 16 weeks.
ALSO, THEY ACCEPTED ME FOR THE BEGINNING OF THE CLINICAL PROGRAM. THAT MEANS I WOULD HAVE TO REPEAT 3 CLERKSHIPS ALREADY COMPLETED. WHICH WOULD MEAN I WASTED 6 MONTHS OF MY LIFE AND OVER 17000 DOLLARS.

Given the above circumstances and list of pro's and con's, Would you transfer if you were in my position? If anyone that is an AUA graduate or current clinical student, please let me know your experience (I realize it would be anecdotal) with the clinical clerkships and requirements.

Thank you in advance for your response! Please advice!
