    Hey!

    How did your interview go? Sorry, somehow I ended up missing this comment! It's probably too late but they basically asked me why I want to be a doctor, how I'd adjust to island life, who inspires me and who is my greatest support. Also, I think we touched on, what changes it would take to adjust to the fast-paced medical curriculum that is very different from undergrad.

    My interview was only 20 minutes so I wasn't asked too many questions! Have you heard back from them?

    That's awesome!Haha, I love how you timed it so precisely! Did they ask you any questions regarding ethical response to situations or the "what would you do"?Mine was mostly, how will you adjust to the island and why do you want to be a doctor, who inspires you, who is your greatest support, etc.
    Good call on asking questions in the end, when I was prepping for the interviews, the videos always said questions reflect interest. I'm sure you will hear back from them within a couple more day!
    MUA was my first choice, as well, but I did apply to St. James, Saba and St. Matthews. To be very honest, I'm most likely going to go to MUA, starting Jan! It would be really nice to see you there and I really hope you get the acceptance!

    Hiya!
    It actually depends on where you are coming from, the States or Canada? I don't know about the States, but in Canada you can apply for the Provincial loans from the StudentAid website, since MUA is a designated school for funding in most provinces. Also, you can visit banks like RBC, Scotiabank, BMO or TD to find out about student loans, some even offer professional loans for careers like medicine! Hope this helps!

    Thank you for the quick response! I am from the States so I am really trying to figure out which banks to contact. I know that federal loans do not apply to pre med program.

    I have not submitted my application yet. I am waiting to get done with volunteer work this week. I am deciding between May or September. Did you already get accepted?

I am not sure what they consider competitive.
    I call bluff on this one. A 3.8 gpa from a D.O. master's program will probably get that person into that school's D.O. program. On top of that with 5 years of research too? Sounds like an example from this quote of a SABA graduate.

    my message to prospectives: your gpa and mcat doesnt predict how well you will do on the step, but your hard work (and not cheating on saba!) does!
    peace out
