    Pros/Cons: SGU or AUC?

    Advertisements



    I have been accepted to the big 3. At this point i have narrowed it down to two schools. Can anyone help me with some pros/cons regarding SGU and AUC medical schools. I would like to know everything from USMLE first time pass rate,quality of education, length of program, ease of getting choice clinical rotations, COST, student loans secrets, housing, etc. Please help!!!!
    Thanks,
    Om

    i disagree. please see my list of important items to look for in a school. You would need to compare both schools on those counts. For the list and general discussion see:http://www.valuemd.com/main-foreign-...-question.html

    i agree with steph, but i can tell you neither school has students that outshine the others in clinicals.....it also depends on the part of the country you depend to practice in since each school is better known in different areas....unfortunately only you can answer which one is better for you

    let me restate a little- i cant say how sgu and auc per se match up on those factors I mention. but I think that you need to look at these factors to compare school and their fit to you.

    If you fail at AUC, SGU, or Ross why not transfer to SMU, if you fail at SMU, why not try another SMU.
