    California approval coming soon?

    Advertisements



    I spoke with someone in admissions today who said MUA has submitted their application for California approval in the beginning of November. Has anyone else heard of this? If this is true, does anyone know what the policy is regarding grandfathering students who studied at MUA prior to approval?

    As far as grandfathering is concerned, AUA got approved by California in summer 2011. The approval involved grandfathering students who started at that school 4 years prior to 2011. In other words, if a student started there in 2007 or later, they would be able to get a California medical license. Therefore, the same action may apply to MUA.

    I was going to call MUA soon and ask the same question! If they do get in the next couple of years, it would be great!

    MUA seeking Cali approval is a story we heard from the admissions department for many years . Read the threads and you will find so many who were told as far back as 2007 that MUA submitted their application for Cali approval and was awaiting a site visit.

    When it happens then it will be believable but untill then consider MUA as it is now..not cali approved lol. The people that work for this school will each tell you one thing. There's no transparency with this place. As some point you just realize you're just using this school to go sit for the step and try your hardest to land some kind of residency. Other than that for now, thats all you're guaranteed over here. For how long? Who knows. Stuff gets shadier by the moment here.

    Like Manuka Honey said, this is probably a lie. MUA has been know to lie. When I applied it said on their website that their residency rate was like 97% and they had about 7 students per cadaver. Only after attending the school I found this to be false.

    Do not trust anything MUA says. That's my advise.

    ...that being said I do find that it is in MUA's best interest to have students match into residency program. On that note once in, they do try help students to do well and succeed. However, during basic sciences there seems to be an underlieing theme that weak students who would not succeed should not continue.

    In regard to cali, MUA since I started (2007) has been interested in getting cali but has been vague with dates. They have never said in the past the applied. If they are saying that now, that is new.

    I did not imply that it is not in their best interest to have all students match. All I said was they inflate the numbers to make it look more attractive that it really is. In 2007 Dr. L (The dean then) stated something to the effect that MUA will see some results as for Cali approval in the next couple of years. I agree vague dates again, but the whole idea is that MUA is intentionally misleading the student.

    I am echoing Don1's comment. I'd been a student there since Jan 2007. Never heard they'd applied, ever. If Dr. L said it looks good, then that's what he said. He has integrity. That doesn't mean anything other than "It looks good". Regarding residency, can you copy paste the part from wherever they say 97%? I'VE NEVER KNOWN MUA TO LIE. I think some people get disgruntled or dissilusioned for various reasons and mis-quote MUA statements. I've found them to be supportive and do everything they said they would. And no, I'm not paid, supported, or congratulated in any way for posting this. I just believe in saying the truth.
    MUA finished.
    Psychiatry residency finished.
