    It's About Time!

    I am glad someone else is able to shed some light on IAU and deplorable conditions under which students are expected to study medicine. Microgen is correct when he speaks about stupidity ruling IAU. One needs to just look at these random newbie IDs that pop up every so often and start to shill for the school. These people are so stupid that they think people are falling for these practices.

    Frankly, if NY does give this place an approval, it is clear evidence that NY approval means nothing and the state has no standards. As for the capable students who are stuck in that rat hole, get out and transfer. Even if it means you have to start all over again. To new students, save yourself and run as fast as you can.

    School Visit Is A Farce

    Why can’t the students who visit the school sit through as many classes as they wish? The school visit policies are just a farce at IAU where they fill the day with nonsense and limit access to only one lecture and even that is subject to the dean’s approval. What are these people hiding? Are the classes and lectures so bad that they don’t want people to have a real experience of what studying at IAU is really like?

    School Visit Policy

    It's interesting that you mentioned the school visit policy. I, too, was confused by the school’s policy of limiting lecture attendance to one class. When I visited Spartan, the school was very open and encouraged me to sit through as many classes as I wanted to. I spent an entire week attending classes Spartan. Below is an e-mail exchange I had with IAU admissions. I must say this policy makes no sense and is very suspicious.

    " Like I said earlier. The school has an official schedule where the visitor is offered a number of options to meet with all faculty, deans, students and othere administrative staff. You also have the option to request items such as sitting in additional classes, but subject to approval by the Dean. Once your campus visit/flight reimburesment has been approved Student Services will send a tentative schedule with fixed items and optional items you could choose from. But in any case, you will not be allowed to sit in ALL classes. One or two lecture visits subject to individual approvals from the professor handling the class may be possible. You may be able to speak to students about quality of other lectures. We have set policy and procedure and will not be changed for one visitor. If the established university guidelines seem unacceptable to you, then attendance here maynot be possible. In which case, you must kindly excuse us."


    Then I wrote back to the school:

Therefore, I will have to pass on the campus visit given the school’s policy. Thanks anyway!"


    I was going to informally drop by when I was on the Island but the three students I met from the school dissuaded me from even doing that.

    Stupid!

    The school visit sounds like picking items from an early bird menu at your local IHOP!

    Caribbean med school like Windsor compare to eastern European school that have New York approval, which is better in training international student?

    All Caribbean’s med school has issue, what makes them diff. is the way they handle their problem. IAU has good administration, which is clearly shown within their 6 years of establishment. In years to come things will only get better. Compare to Spartan who has spend 29 years in getting New York recommendation.
    Every university in the world has its own policy and protocol. If you can meet up with the rules it is advisable you back off. Iam happy u have done that already by joining Spartan becos they have new administration, permanent campus, cali disapproved and new York recommendation and you are also satisfy with their rules . That is cul

    Fine IAU have issues . Don't write as if it is worst med schul in the Caribbean. When you and I are aware that, their plenty of older Caribbean school that IAU is better than.

    I seriously think you should move this your thread to another forum.

    This place is not a "university". It's a dump on top of a shopping center located in a third-world country and run by unethical pigs. But to respond to your point: Real universities have rules because they are designed to serve the needs of the students and the institution. In this dump, the rules are designed to deceive the incoming students the same way a used car dealer uses distractions to make sure the buyer never gets wind of the real deal.

    I see that phony newbies are out in full force doing damage control.
