    want to know everything Med U of Lodz

    My family is originally from Belgian. I am finishing my ** in and wanted to know About the medical schools in Poland. I wanted to know specially about Med U of Lodz because i am interested doing my rotations in the US. I checked out caribbean schools but NOT interested in them. Would appreciate if someone answer this who really know what they are talking about because i am serious and not just shooting the breeze.

The school doesn't have much at all to do with it, in my opinion. And the 11 people to which I referred, are all either attending currently (both pre-clinical and clinical), or are in a residency somewhere in the U.S.

    As for what I learned from the people at AIM and the Medical University of Lodz was just what KluberB was talking about: inconsistency, all the way around. I am, however, able to find enough consistency in what even they tell me-compared to what the current and former students tell me-to make a decision one way or another. And I will.

    I simply choose not to focus on the things that most people on here do; which seems to be a long series of asking the same questions over and over again with the intent (or rather, hope) of eliminating uncertainty in making this decision. My opinion about that is that its not possible to do so. That's why I keep going back to (what I believe is a fact), that this process is about you...and not the school.

    Everyone here focuses on the school, generally. That seems a bit backward to me.

    One thing that you should know, however, as I write to you now (and yesterday), I am in Poland having a look around. And I gotta tell you, the folks going to school here, are telling many more good things than bad-although they are telling me some bad, "hope-that-doesn't-happen-to-me" kinda stuff. But some of it might because that can't all be control for. This isn't some chemistry experiment in a lab! This is Lodz, Poland. And it looks pretty nice to me. So it's looking like I might go here.

    I agree with KluberB, and Miklos, and others...
    TAKE THEE HENCE TO POLAND! See for yourself.

    Cheers to all!

    I agree with much of what you say, DeepRoller. There are far too many people posting the same inane questions "which is better, X or Y school" etc, when really there is no answer.

    In Poland all the universities that run English language programs are established and respectable institutions that have been graduating skilled Polish doctors for many years. There may of course be problems specific to the English program, but they are certainly not a "scam". Just because some are associated with agents or that you can't always get a straight answer from the administration doesn't mean they are necessarily incompetent, dishonest or corrupt.

    The best advice is always to visit the school in person and see how things are for yourself.

    No, not Lublin.
    So far, only Warsaw (just the city) and Lodz.
    Tuesday afternoon, I'm going to Gdansk. Then on Wednesday, back to Warsaw to visit the university. Then Thursday, I hop on a LOT and go back to the U.S.

    Because he's not interested in Lublin.

    They are affiliated with a shady agent and the city has the lowest per capita income in all of Europe, I believe. Strikes one and two.

    As far as the OP bashing Caribbean schools like SGU over Euroe schools, wow; Miklos pretty much hit all of it on the head. Look at SGU's track record. There's a thread in the SGU section of these forums called something like "is it worth all this money?" I'd say so; they seem to do a good job at providing you with the tools necessary to make yourself a success. I'd say that's worth any amount of debt. I don't want to become a doctor to be rich, to save money, or to take a financial shortcut.

    Lublin isn't on the list for a very simple reason: there's nothing there.
    It has nothing to do with the agent; although I will agree that if what everyone says is true about HMI, I wouldn't want to do with them, either.

    Lublin happens to be a little Polish backwater that doesn't have any attraction to me at all. I want some of the Polish nightlife. I want to be able to get on a train and connect with the rest of the continent in short order. I want to be in a larger place. I want to be able to go to Pizza Hut or Kentucky Fried Chicken. And I fear that Lublin is more like the Ukraine than Poland. And I definitely don't want that. Not to be down on the Ukraine...

    Screw the agents! They're all pains in the butt, from what I can tell and what I'm been through so far.

    I suggest if you want to go to Lublin, then go check it out. If you still want to, then go there.

    Lublin just isn't for me. And this thread wasn't about Lublin, anyway.

    Lubin and Lodz

    Sry sumozmom can't help you. Don't want to steer you in the wrong direction. I don't know. But you have one option. Just spend 700 or 800 dollars and go there and see it for urself. This is the only way you will get the satisfaction. In my opinion if your heart is set on becoming a MD its better to spend few dollars Now and find it for yourself then to wake up one day with a debt of 200k.

    I have applied to 7 schools in europe and i am going to see my family in belgium in May and i would want to go and see these schools myself. No body knows anything for sure unless they have been there or in school right now. So my advise is talk to the school officials and then go and see the school on your own.

    Zut Alors:

    I read the same thing today and I totally agree with you. For some people living in the islands might not be pleasant due to xyz. But I do agree that it's worth the money if this is where you want to go. Just out of curiosity do you know where your going to end up?
