    5th Semester in the states!

    Advertisements



    Hey, I heard a "rumor" the schoo might start having 5th semester in the states.

    1. Is there any truth to this?

    2. If so, when would they do this?

    thats a waste of money to have to move all your stuff to the states for a few months and find housing. pointless and it is absolutely not true. i would be against this.

    When I applied last year, the Gardner office told me that Saba "might" be considering something like that in the next few years, and then it is possible that MUA would follow. But as far as I know, Saba hasn't done that yet, so I'd suspect that his rumor is just that: a rumor.

    I think that's just a rumor.

    I know SMU started their 5th in the states, hoping to attract more people. It really hasn't worked and I forsee them eventually doing 5th, for all, in Cayman.
