    The Update is as follows:
    You don't have a family medicine rotation to go to on the 5th. And there is no answer as to when the rotation will be available. It may never be available.

    Both sides are pointing fingers at each other and we are all stuck in the middle. They are offering Atlanta instead but do not take it!!!!! If you have not heard, many issues are coming out of Atlanta (students are suing for not getting credit for the core they completed).

    There were a lot of students falling for what this talking suit was saying. He said he was going to personally help the students get their clinical rotations, that all they needed to do was give him a call. RIIIIIIIGHT Keep drinking the Kool-Aid kids. He was there to pat you on the head and tell you everything was going to be O.K. when in fact, it's not O.K. They F'ed up, three times, the exact same way and they want you (the student) to trust them that they are there to take care of you.
    If they were there to take care of you, they would have verified the legitimacy of the FM rotation before any of this happened.

    This school is shady, has always been shady, and will continue to be shady in the way they operate.

    Do not trust what you are told by those employed at AUA, always investigate, always be your own advocate, be a skeptic.

    good luck

    Do you mean that they are not getting credit for a greenbook core or students are not getting credit for the rotation at all?

    Summerwind, why do you post on AUAs website if you are affiliated with SGU?

    We may not be getting credit at all. Nobody can say what is truly going on because neither the school or medstars will disclose any info about the situation. These 3rd party rotation companies in Atlanta are VERY shady
