    Something from DJ $iva that makes you think

    Mystery Surrounds C.M.U.!


    Like for real!

    Each week the drama is building up here in Willemstad! It’s just pretty crazy, but generally a really interesting and unique experience.

    There are all sorts of rumors flying around the med school here regarding the incoming class in September. Basically, the rumor is that essentially there is no incoming class…lol!

    Also, last week the local government in Curacao eliminated a monopoly that shut out any new medical schools on the island, so supposedly that was an important move. There was an article in the local newspaper, Extra, about it last week.

    In some ways, going to the med school here is like being a guerilla med student. This is because there is like no real school here with few real resources. Almost every claim on the web site is patently false, including all of the information regarding accreditations and rotations. At least this is according to the Student Government Association (SGA) meeting this morning!

    Fortunately though, the school basically has no direction to go but up…unless you count bankruptcy as an option (which could still be helpful to the general public)!

    Anyways, it should be interesting to see what happens here! Holla!

    That is a direct quote from his blog.... Just to provoke some thought.... however, please dont bash the students... bash the administration if anything.

    I don't have a problem with a school trying to start up. That's great they were bitten by the entrepreneurial bug to make money.

    I do have a problem with a school claiming to have IMED listings when they clearly don't with their charter just being signed 1 day ago. Who knows what other shady dealings they are trying to pull on students and preying on the ignorance of naive students as they screw with their future licensure.

    why even bother with the obvious. Just know where you are need it and where you can help the most.

    I personally think that was a nice gesture from them to the students.
    my question is can they take the basketball net back to their home? or is just to be use in the apartment?
    I have never seen another institution giving free basketball nets so it is ground breaking.

    agreed, when I first came to AUC and they gave me a leather padfolio for orientation I was like, "What do expect me to do with this? It would be nice if you guys could give me gym equipment, at least I could USE that...." It fell on def ears, the next class got AUC logo coffee mugs...
