    Question on overall class schedule

    Advertisements



    Hello, I am interested in AUSOM and will most likely apply for the next cycle, I have a few questions that I tried search but couldn't get an answer.
    Preferably from current or already graduated students;

    1. What is the course schedule like in terms of exams, how many exams are there per semester? are the exams grouped (i.e. anatomy & histo in same exam)? Are the exams biweekly, monthly?

    2. I read in another thread that student 'dating' was not allowed, what does that mean exactly?

    3. Would love to see someones private collection of school photos/ island photos etc

    4. What is your most favorite part of the school?

    5. What is your least favorite part of the school?



    Thank you ,

    -Alicia.

    Hi, i am current MD4 and started in MD1

    1) We have quizzes every month, and we have 3 block exam in a semester per class per month. Anatomy exams is different from histology. You will do cell bio/histo together.

    2) I am not sure either what that means lol

    3) if you have facebook, search for SGA ausom or search atlantic university school of medicine you will see pictures.

    4) lab

    5) library

    Hope this helps

    Yes!! as far as i know you don't need MCAT to apply for MD. In terms of exams if you are in MD1 you will be do exam exam per day, but you have other MD's who will be taking exams but different time.

    Like ladysman said you should also visit campus as well to ask more questions, staff and students are always there to help.

    Good luck

    you should apply to a us DO school with that. do not go international if you have a degree and an mcat.

    or at least not to atlantic. you would be better off at the big 4 carib schools that have high admission standards compared to bottom tier schools in the caribbean.

    you will regret it.

    i agree that op should apply for big 4 medical school in carib and in US, but giving false information about school which you don't attend is wrong and as i have noticed from your previous posts seems like you are either pissed off because you either failed course and were suspended or you go to one of medical schools in carib where most of students are coming from to our school. Either way i am sure you are not Doctor or Medical student because of your incompetent messages, and again you might well be above if you are then i won't be surprised.

    I always shut Atlantic praisers with one question: do you have a match list?

    If I met an Atlantic administrator, I would shut them up with the same question.

    I am not an Atlantic student, but yes, I go to another Caribbean school. It's cute to see you defend Atlantic when I made no specific attacks against it.

    If you want to practice in the US, going overseas for medical school is an uphill battle. Starting at a bottom-feeder Carib school like Windsor or Atlantic today is an even stupider decision with LCME requirements coming for Carib schools in the next 4-6 years. If your school is shut down while you are still a student, guess what? You will have wasted all that time and money.

    So if your grades are so poor that you can not afford to go to an LCME accredited Carib school like the Big 4 (at least Ross and SGU are safe), then going to a low end school at this point should not be an option unless you are sure you will finish your MD within four years before the LCME requirements hit or you are confident your school will pass LCME requirements.

    I have no faith Windsor will pass these requirements. If Atlantic takes the druggies and failures from Windsor with open arms, logic only dictates they will not pass LCME either.

    I hope that is an educated enough response for you. You can keep sucking the teat of Atlantic and praising it, but if someone asks for a residency match list and you are unable to provide even one resident from Atlantic, then you already know what your school's worth is. You just choose to pretend it won't happen to you and that you are an exception.

    I am not promoting Windsor, but if you were to ask me for Windsor's student-aggregated match list, then here it is Alumni

    You can even verify they are at said hospitals by simply looking up the resident list on their website. When I ask an Atlantic student where their residents are, they sit their with their phallus in the hands.

    Prove me wrong. You don't have to attend any Caribbean school to understand they are for-profit, and you don't need to attend Atlantic to see that their website is full of false promises much like other Carib schools. They state they have teachers from Kaplan and PhDs teaching there. No self-respecting PhD will take peanuts as a salary to teach at a new school. Forget about Kaplan's prestigious teachers. If you got Kaplan teachers at your school, they would demand an exorbitant salary, and that is not happening at Atlantic, where the tuition is comparable to a community college.
