    Avalon 2013 Match

    Advertisements



    Does anyone know what the match status is like in this school? I have applied here and am waiting to hear back but I am really unsure about this school. They have a list of students that have matched but that is not all from this year, and I don't think it is from last year alone either. They have listed 4 matches is 2013 and all seem to be in good areas like UPMC and LSU. The school seems legit but not posting an annual match list is a red flag for me. If anyone has any info, please share.

    What makes you say "the school seem legit"?

    Not sure really. I guess they have been in existence for a while and have been advertising heavily so I "thought" they were legit. Plus, their students on VMD seem to be very supportive of the school. Can you provide some insight about this school axiom?

    Heavy advertisement is not an indicator of legitimacy. It is an indicator of a marketing budget and a desire for students, period.

    Yea I kinda of correlated market budget with the school's success but I guess that's not always true.
    Well, let's just wait and see if any student or admin posts soon.

    Terp13, unfortunately I don't know any match rates. Maybe another student could chime in on that front. However I can tell you that I am a current student at the school and I enjoy it there. I've never sensed anything but a genuine interest on the part of the teachers to teach. The school was recently reviewed by the CAAM accreditation commitee, it started applying their recommendations asap, and they are also breaking ground on a new campus pretty soon. From what I hear it should be done in about a year, but I don't know that for a fact. I know of a few people that are either starting clinicals or studying for USMLE step 1. I don't think it is fair to equate a lack of info to mean that it's not legit. They probably should work on that part. I don't have enough posts to be able to add links, but if you google CAAM, it is the first thing to come up, then you can click on assessed programs, and our school is on there. Also, the student body has a Facebook page, which is separate from the official school one. You are welcome to check it out.

    FYI - the list of Residency programs that graduates have matched into is right on the website - Go to avalonu.org and it's under the "Student Resources" tab.

    Yeah valerie I know about that but that only shows 4 people matching this year and the rest are from previous years. I am not sure if only 4 people matched this year.....
