    NY approved, CA - not yet applied (not yet approved), do a little bit more research on the other stuff. Theres 48 other states and i do not have the luxury of time to reasearch all those states. You can search this forum as well as these questions have been asked repetitively.

    [quote- is this school better than AUA [/quote] this is a subjective question. For me, MUA is a much better school.

    You might want to post on both forums so you get feedback from both sides.

    1. You'll be happier if you do your own research.
    2. MUA has far higher credentials taht AUA, it's not even a comparison.
    3. For a real horror, check the AUA posts on their clinical sememesters, they don't even have them pre-arranged.

    I REPEAT...this is not bashing. If these are not facts, I invite anyone to refute them.

    As far as opinion, as to which school may feel subjectively better, that's infinitely individual, but MUA has a proven administration (They own SABA), I believe it is a fact that they will have CA approval before long.

    It's kindof a no brainer, but you should prove that to yourself.

    What the hell do any of us know?

    MUA and AUA are pretty much polar opposits what is best for you is up to you.

    I will say first that I go to MUA and I have never been to AUA but I have talked to a couple of students that have left MUA to attend AUA.

    The differences are apparent.

    For the pro-MUA crowd
    MUA is less expensive than AUA.
    You only pay for the courses you take at MUA not a flat fee like MUA
    AUA has more graduates than MUA.
    MUA's track record will make it eaiser for them to get CA.

    For the pro-AUA crowd..
    AUA is on a nicer island than MUA..
    AUA spends there 5 semester in Miami..
    AUA is easier they you only need a 65 to pass its a 70 at MUA..
    AUA has a larger finanical backing and they have purchased members of congress so they will have an easy time getting accredication from FL.

    Either way you will still get the same IMG friendly residency!
    To say things that just get people mad is silly.. I am sure eventually both schools will have 50 state accredditation they will just go about it in different ways like they already have.

    To say things like MUA will never get FL or CA is pretty silly.

    please forgive any spelling errors...

    didn't know this thread would go in this absurd direction. This poster's info is completely wrong. Don't trust me, check it out factually with the schools.

    MUA is exactly as I and others said it is.

    Accept it and move on.

    My $0.02, irrespective of the school you attend in the Caribbean, you will still be classified as an IMG and will still have to face all the hurdles come licensing and residency. This thread is petty and has no purpose. Do the research, call the states you're interested in getting licensed in, don't just rely on the information you get from your school or on this site. Take your time, don't jump the gun, this is a huge decision after all. Stop the school bashing, we're all future colleagues that deserve respect and tolerance. If you don't have either of those qualities maybe you ought to think twice about doing medicine. After all it is a team effort is it not?
