    Applying to MUA

    Advertisements



    Hi everyone...

    I'm not sure when I should apply to MUA. I wanted to submit my application for class starting January 2009 at the end of winter semester (march 2008). Will that be too late? I don't know how far in advance to apply. thanks for any help!

    Also, I'm a psychology major with a 3.7 GPA applying for the pre-medical program. I went to community college for two years (against my will) and earned an associates... my gpa at community college isn't as impressive as my gpa now- will that screw me? Thanks

    the only way you will know for sure is to apply. January 2009 is a long time away; why don't you aim for starting in a medical program locally? Most people I've met have come here because there assess their situation (marks) retrospectively and determine that this is their best/only option then apply (some don't want to write the mcat). Are you anticipting doing poorly for the remainder of your education or not writing the mcat?

    I'm not sure how it works in the US, but in Canada community college doesn't get factored into your average. MUA admissions, i think, will look at it and not be concered if you improved afterwards and have taken some science courses (if you are considering med 1). I don't think you will have a problem with premed.

    I would call the office to determine the cutoff for applications. it is never bad to apply too early; worst case there may be a delay in reviewing your application.

    good luck

    Yes, MUA is chartered in the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis, where it is located. (It's always good to be chartered by the country in which instruction actually occurs! - this hasn't been the case for some schools that have run into trouble or closed, such as the schools that are chartered in African countries, but with instruction in the UK)

    And also, do not confuse MUA Nevis with the MUA in Belize. The Belize one is associated with one of these schools that do not have a charter in the country of instruction.
