    Spartan vs Windsor

    Advertisements



    I am looking into attending a medical school between Windsor and Spartan in September. Can you please send me information on the following about Spartan?

    1. How good the faculty members are?

    2. Is there a shelf exam in place?

    3. What is the pass rate of the school in USMLE?

    4. Are there enough greenbook clinicals available for students?

    5. Social life on the Island.

    6. Cost of living on the Island

    7. Is there any hidden charges other than stated on the school's website.


    I am sure these information will help in my decision making. Thank you

    Check out their website and give them a call, they should be able to answer any questions you have.

    Social life on the island is good. I spend most of my time studying, so I really did not go out so often, but when I did (after a big round of exams) everyone seemed friendly. The island is not to expensive (but this all depends on how you live). From my experiences rent can cost you anywhere from as little as $200 US/month to $600 or more if you want to live like a king.
    My advice is to take a paper and pen write down your questions, check out the website and give them a call. I can not speak of Windsor since I honestly do not know much about them. I can tell you that I chose SHSU over them (I was accepted to both and I personally felt more comfortable with SHSU - you need to make this determination for yourself). I can speak of the new management for SHSU - They are extremely experienced and highly motivated to move SHSU into being a top tier University. NY was the first of many accomplishments they are pursuing. Good luck with your decision and feel free to post more questions or msg me.

    Don't really know much about SJSM.
    If you are trying to do a comparison do some research on that school and try to make a comparison list. I can tell you some things about SHSU:

    It is one of the oldest medical schools in the Carib (shows a level of stability since other schools have opened and closed their doors), under new management (with a great amount of experience in medical education), new prof's have been added, curriculum has been updated to parallel US medical schools, the addition of a 5th semester to assist students with the transition from the preclincial to clinicals portion of their education, case studies, shelf exams, a great USMLE prep with top rated lecturers (many of whom are/were involved in highly used prep books and programs), small class sizes, lots of student and prof interaction, lots of prof availability for help, a friendly enviornment (not a kill or be killed enviornment as seen in some of the larger universities), great clinical sites (also already established in NY), and finally the NY approval. *As an FYI - NY is important because about 27% IMG's trained in NY in 2003 (and that number has likely increased).*

    Hope that helps. Feel free to ask anything else.

    Depends on your stats. The only way you will find out is if you apply. If you have not completed the prereq's I would do so first, and suggest you complete your undergrad degree if you have not already. I do not believe they require the MCAT yet.
