    School Choice?

    Advertisements



    I have been accepted to SMU and Spartan in St. Lucia. Can anyone tell me their opinions on which to choose? I already know a resident who graduated from Spartan and got placed in Canada, which is my goal.

    Go to Spartan.

    Its a more established school.

    And St Lucia is a better island to visit.

    :-) but both are disapproved by CA, but how come less bashing on SMU and more on Spartan ? And Spartan's got a lot of successful grads, I don't get the bashing. And Spartan grads are matching in competitive fields too.

    SMU is for St. Matthews University. I think not too many people thinks about St. Martinus.

    Even though St. Martinus is not on the officially disapproved list, you'll find that it is a disapproved school as far as California is concerned. Email them for confirmation.

    If you mean SMU as in St. Matthews then this is a very easy choice.
    ST. MATTHEWS!!!

    IF you mean SMU as in St. Martinus it's a toss up

    Spartan Health Sciences in St. Lucia seems very primitive down there. Their classrooms, facilities, technology (or lack there of) is way below the standards that one will find at St. Martinus University. If you disagree, go to www.martinus.edu and click on SMU photos/videos.
