    Is CMU really who they say they are?

    Advertisements



    I hear CMU students bragging about their school all over ValueMD, but I don't hear anyone from the BIG 4 or anywhere else in the world or Caribbean bragging about their school. They are too busy studying..It gets somewhat annoying. Come on...It's the first semester there people.

    And the semester has yet to start, nobody has taken the boards, nobody has gotten licensed.....

    Medical students are not the best judges of whether a program prepares them for the boards, until they take the boards. This is a bunch of nonsense. I don't even remember being this embarrassed for people when I was at high school pep rallies.....

    It seems as if the school administrators are online here all day posting chicken soup to try to get people to sign up for their "New" program so they can make money and lure students in... All I see is backfiring mumbo jumbo...

    Hey, even snake oil salesmen are allowed to peddle crappy products! That's what makes capitalism so fun!

    cmu will learn soon what others have learned; which is that accomplishments speak volumes. Cheerleading backfires.

    re: hm.....

    now I'm not trying to say the school isn't legitimate... but it's certainly not fully functional yet.

    I'm also wondering about the supposed 2 SGU students who were both stellar students who transferred.

    I'm not gonna ask them to state their reason for transferring. it's their own business - but I will say this - don't be surprised when others questions this - providing that a school official is waving this around as a 'selling point' for the school.

    you can call me a hater if you want - I'm just pointing out something that I find VERY suspicious.

    Curacao is a beautiful island. Enjoy your time there.

    Cheers,

    Its a new school which appears to have a fair amount of backing. All the offshore schools started off small. They have faculty and facilities. they will probably do well. What troubles me is these schools (no names will be given out of courtesy) that have 1-2 profs total and thats it and they make it sound like they are world medical leaders. (One school is in Northern Mexico on the Texas border, one is in Belize and one is in Hutt River. There are also 2 questionable schools. One that has distance learning and one that is start up in St Kitts). The rest are fine! AUA, SJSM, XAVIER, SMU etc are all doing well.

    You have to get onto the Hutt river site and then go to the hutt river royal navy site. The part where captain is promoted to commodore.

    Talk about snootiness and colonialism.
