    Saba and MUA

    Advertisements



    Does anyone know the relationship between MUA and Saba?

    They have the same address in Massachusetts, their websites look like they were made by the same individual, and Saba refers students to MUA for admissions.

    Are these two schools owned by the same corporation?

    You would have to apply to MUA, they have seperate admittions commitees, and submit the paperwork required for MUA. They may offer you MUA as an option if they feel that Saba is not the right match of schools for you.

    Umm...this information is completely false. MUA is approved by NY and they have had residency placements in Florida. Also, SMU was completely rejected by California, while MUA mirrors SABA and has a good chance of getting California approval someday.

    I agree. the only difference concerning board approvals is that SMU has be rejected by california, but they have the same approvals elsewhere. there is speculation that being on a disapproved list is worse that not applying.

    I don't know what SMU island is like. i went to MUA and the island is safe, small, and somewhat inexpensive. Other islands may cost much more to live on but you have access to lots of additional stores and places to eat compared to MUA.

    That is not correct, smu is licensed by florida, mua is not. that is important.
