    Why Asusm

    Advertisements



    I dont want to start a flame war or anything.... just want to put out there what ASUSM has to offer to a prospective student.....

    1) Chance to write USMLE
    2) clinicals in US
    3) Good education (at least i feel)
    4) cheap price
    5) cheap living
    6) all the facilities to help you learn (may not be state of the art but it get the job done - cadavor labs, histo labs, path labs, etc)
    7) nice small school environment to study
    8) better teacher to student ratio

    Now i know that there are a few problems with the school but remember that every school has problems no 1 is perfect.

    Now if u want cali or kansas then forget it..... but if u want other states like fl, tx, etc then it may work for u because ASUSM is not disapproved by any state so therefore your application will be a case by case senario.... So its in the same boat as most other Caribbean medschool that dont have Cali approval....

    PS: do not talk pooh pooh about this school if u have a real question or genuine opinion then you may share..... I dont want a flame off....

    1) I am a student,
    2) I have been at the Dominica Branch of the School since it started
    3) The Aruba campus is now been open for 2 years and the dominica for 8 months
    4) yes we have 2 students that passed the USMLE and in rotations - 1 is actually finishing his clinicals soon (7 are gettin rdy to take the Step 1 soon)
    5) just to let you know that the school is growing fast and we are gettin a the ex saba dean starting from the Jan. semester... (they say he made SABA what it is and i hope he does the same for us).

    For every1 that didnt know ASUSM has a premed program that accepts students straight out of High school.... if you want to get a head start at becoming a Dr. this is a great way to go!!!! and btw its far cheaper than AUA's.....

    I heard that the new dean starting in January came to dominica to talk to a few students. This looks positive to me.

    With all these positives, why are you looking to transfer to AUC?

    Sorry, I didn't get what you said about going to AUC because I'm not a student of ASUM. Hoping to read from you soon. Thanks.

    It wasn't towards you. I was writing to What's Up Doc, why he's looking to transfer to AUC (American University of the Caribbean) if ASUM is so great?
    Posterior Fornix.
