    Always Defending Everything Negative that is Posted

    Advertisements



    i think it is so funny that people actually admit that they are asked to come on here and post positive things on valuemd. If you read some of the posts, they actually admit they are asked to come on hear and do that. I dont understand why that would be an issue. If everything is as great as MUA makes it out so seem, why does it matter if people post negative things about the school,

    Maybe many of those content students are busy studying(and that is why they are happy with their situation).
    If current students have concerns,they can always approach the staff,if some disgruntle student who dont want to admit their own shortcomings are bent on disrupting our forum, then its unfortunate.
    If some other outsider,with agendas are just here to malign the school,it will only make us more determined.

    I would ask the mods to please take note of so many threads being started,which only bash the school.If someone has an issue,one thread is more than enough but its misleading to the new and prospective student that ONE or a couple of people take it upon themsleves to misrepresent the vast majority of content students at MUA.This is really getting out of hand...

    Its little secret that MUA is one of the better caribbean schools,we are probably ranked right after the big 4,maybe tied with SMU...but thats open to discussion. The point is,the school is good enuf if someone has the aptitude and drive to become a physician.
    I feel bad that our dean is being attacked unduely by students who have been here long before his tenure,and many who dislike his toughness.
    HE is making all this changes to force us to work harder and improve our pass rate even higher. That is the best way to improve the school,rather than spoon feeding the students,grapping their money and leave them out in the cold when it comes to step1 and rotations.

    Why it matters Caribdoc

    It matters when the negative things are untrue and blown out of proportion to the point that contextually misleading. If this continues and it is in an organized attempt to mallaign that would not be a professional way for a future doc of ethical nature to proceed.

    Hmmm i just scanned the threads, don't recall ANY student claiming they'd been approached by the school to come on here and promote the school. I for one HAVEN'T. If you can rant on about this being an independent forum in which your issues with the school should be heard, why CANT WE defend our school? Works both ways doesn't it? If you want to point out the negative aspects fair enough, but please do it in a manner that is more respectful. When the complaints turn into personal attacks and flaming, you lose all credibility.

    A message from the Dean

    Anyone with any issues, complaints, suggestions, needing assistance should come see me or the Assistant Dean. We are both available 24/7. Ask students on campus and they will affirm that you can tell us anything without any fear of repercussions or reprissal. Again if you don't believe that all you have to do is ask around and if you even "sniff" that I am not being straight with you PM me the details and I will see to it that whatever is perceived as being incorrect will be addressed. The administration is fully committed to making MUA KNOWN as a first tier school. Our focus is on students and constructive change.

    Play nice is a good euphamism for Factual Professional and Constructive!

    violations of terms of use are taken very seriously. Insults/flames/vulgar language even with symbols are all against tos. consider any courtesy Pm exactly that- you are expected to know and abide by tos. failure to do so will result in infraction and/or banning.
