    keep it real

    Advertisements



    i got accepted into st chris for jan 06. now i just read about the troubles of a young girl who came back to FL from AUA and is now having trouble with clinicals, apparently there were not approved there or NY or of course cali despite the contrary to what AUA's website informed her, apparently it was misleading. now do students from st chris will they go through the same bull**** because st chris website gives high hope that when you are done with your basic sciences then you do clinicals in the us, but through how much stress i am coming there from washington dc and do hope that it is worth the trip and money why don't former students come or at least attempt to communicate with prospective students also reading from other websites (www.studentdoctor.net) I read not to believe anything from whuds or bts becasue they are st chris administrators and moderators and try to hype the school in an attempt to increase student enrollment. how much truth is there to this? i'm not trying not start nothing but the girl who is now having difficulities was told just like me not believe everything on this valuemd. now she says she wished she had because she would have avoided complications like what she is going through now. what is the real deal with st. chris for real?????????????

    I have been called everything from an administrator, to the owner, to things I probably shouldn't repeat.

    Regardless, since you seem to believe that I am not to be trusted, then I will not share my opinions with you.

    i'm a current student (although so are whuds and bts) and i have done all my rotations at US hospitals in 2 locations (1 in the northeast and one in the midwest). i will be doing a little more jumping around hospital-to-hospital over the next several months because i am applying for residency in a very competitive field and it will work to my advantage if various residency programs know me. so far in clinical clerkships, i have compared favorably with the students of US med schools with whom i've rotated. my usmle score was also 99th percentile, which is a testament to the education i received at st chris. the "real deal" with st chris is that:

    1) it was a decent school when i was in england, and i understand it has grown and improved considerably since i left. placement in good clinical clerkships is not a problem.
    2) it is potentially threatening to schools on caribbean islands because of its geographical location and because it dodges the bullet of the "caribbean stigma", which may explain all the negative press in online fora such as this one.
    3) it is a young school with an unproven record for licensing physicians - i am aware of only 4 states in which permanent licenses have been granted to graduates of st chris and i am aware of 1 state that has rejected a single applicant (texas and the applicant transferred into st chris from another medical school that has since closed). however, we do have graduates placed in many residency/house officer programs (mostly in the US, but also in Canada and the UK) and this number will undoubtedly increase rapidly over the next several years.
    4) we have not applied for recognition in california and, as such, we are currently ineligible for clerkship/residency/licensure there; we have applied and are currently undergoing evaluation to be eligible for more than the standard 12-weeks of clerkships in new york.

    by the way, like every other st chris student on this site at one time or another, i've also been accused of being an administrator of st chris by would-be detractors of my school, so make of that what you will.

    if you're trying to decide whether to go to st chris, it may help you make your decision to see some real st chris students... check out the following friendster profile (you'll need to create a free account to access it):

    http://www.friendster.com/user.php?uid=19239068

    also, the following friendster profile can help you compare the type of student at st chris with the type of student in other "offshore" schools:

    http://www.friendster.com/user.php?uid=19770189

    med school's not easy... it's important to be around people who you regard as a support system and no matter where you go, you'll be spending the majority of your time with other students. do a little looking into where you feel like you fit in best.

    keep it real

    i have also been cautioned about you as well *******wlder. you are in the same category as whuds, bts i just forgot to mention you. look if you think its a good school more power to you. just to let you know i think of the school quite as good if not better in a positive light that i pray will move speed ahead futurewise but i want to make my own decision on attending this school and not based on realtors decision afterall all that glitters in not gold, so convenient that only you popped up out of nowhere, i said i wanted to hear from other students like i said i don't want to suffer when it comes time for clinicals and residency. please do not take offense but could you keep quiet as well, i am sure there are other students who attend the school besides you, bts, and whuds. funny......on the st. chris forum on valuemd the important topics are dismissed as regular threads keep it real, terri loans, clinicals while the nonessential are taken up as hot thread nchi (new) where to go and fix your laptop....should i say more, i hope the other priorities are not as screwed up as the "hot new thread" i really want to hear from other students who are in clinicals can like give a specific hospital and state or at least the city, I am coming all the way from Hyattsville, Maryland and it better be very well worth it.

    I do take offense to being singled out. Whats the sense in ticking off students you would go to school with? We try very hard to give out infromation we know. I'm a current student and have done a lot of research on the school. I have my opinion of the school. First off if you are that worried then go to a medical school in the USA. If you cannot then St. Chris is an option. There are troubles with getting a lic in some states for now, MD and DC are not the ones. You can not pick and choose who will talk to you, many St. Chris students will not post here due to the crap that has gone on here by fake posters like a couple weeks ago. I can not speak to the "Girl from AUA" but if you do your own home work and research the school then you will know. If your ready for medical school then you should be able to handle this. If you doubt who I am just click on my name and see my posts, I started back in 2004 asking about the school myself. I do this for the benifit of the other students at St. Chris and potential new students, we do hope to post how we see our school, the good and the bad.



    Cheers.

    I'm so tired of the bashing Tanishia, why do you say I'm an aministrator? I'm an Older student, VP of AMSA at the school, worked as an RN for 18yrs before going to med school. I'm in the 1st semester and still have a couple of undergrad to finish. Am I an administrator cause some unknown poster says that? Yes I go around the web to the other sites cause there are many St. Chris bashers who lie about the school. The truth is twisted by them to make the school look like something it is not. It is not perfect, and there are some real issues but for the most part STUDENTS LIKE ME SHOULD GO AROUND THE WEB AND POST WHAT WE KNOW. Are you an administrator cause you have gone around the net and posted about the school? Get real! SDN and other sites have been mostly flooded with non students who think they know about the school. I'm proud of a medical school that is so new.
    I do this for my fellow students who deserve the truth posted about our school. Yea we care about our school. I keep the same WHUDS to keep it real. I do not hide who I am, I sell and buy on ebay by whuds ect. I do not know who you are though, you could be anyone including someone who wants to bash the school. NO ADMINSITRATORS FROM ST. CHRIS POST HERE. I wish they did. I have questions myself. I have few choices of where I could go to school, I picked St. Chris cause they have more to offer me and my family.


    Bottom line if you don't like it you can go somewhere else,
    Good Luck.

    (BTW this cell/histo class is the most boring class I've ever been in!)

    On last thing, BTS and I are 2 different people, he's in the USA in clinicals about to grad, I'm in Luton (God help me) for the next 1.5yrs.
