    Advertisements



    Hey guys,

    I got in Saba for May 06 and AUC for Jan 06. I want your honest input on what you think about Saba because I am definelty leaning more towards Saba. Good or bad? I would love to hear your input...

    Both are good choices. You have to weigh out what's right for you.

    I'll summarize what I know about the two:

    SABA

    -Smaller class sizes leads to more personal attention from faculty
    -Smaller island means more of a community type atmosphere
    -Cheaper in cost

    AUC

    -Been around longer, so more Program Directors are familiar with graduates of this school when it comes to obtaining a residency
    -On an island that is more "Americanized" (for lack of a better word!)
    -More hospital affiliations for clinicals

    Both schools will get you licenced in all 50 states. If you think you will be easily distracted then stick with Saba. If you feel you need certain amenities and feel as though it would be hard to cope without them, stick with AUC. My opinion is that both schools will adequately prepare you for the boards.

    there is no "ranking system" auc, ross, sgu, saba are usuallu grouped together b.c they all have california approval but you need to look at which school you'l feel more confortable at as far as ammenities, class size, etc. both of your choices are decent schools, saba students usually come to st maarten to hang out once in a while. hung out with a few, they had no major complaints.....

    both are good schools. I'd visit them both as Saba is only a 60 dollar ferry ride from St. Maarten.
    Finally beat Super Mario Bros within 7 mins.

    Nah, I was scared of that tiny plane and the short runway, but the flight was extremely smooth. I'd rather take the plane than the ferry, which can be very choppy at times.
