    transfer pro cons

    Advertisements



    i'm sure this has been discussed ad noseum so if someone could just point me to the right posts or could write me a pm i would greatly appreciate it.

    i'm curious about the (unbiased) pros and cons regarding transfering from a caribbean school (such as saba or auc) to sga.

    my personal motivation to think about something like this would be the fact that sga seems to offer more options for clinicals in which i would personally be more interested.

    i would greatly appreciate any info on the topic. thanks again.

    if you use the search function (above) it can help find these popular sort of threads. There is no "down" to transfering. You should not NOT try to transfer to the US merely because you like having more sites to do clinicals. That's extremely short sighted. IF you are a good candidate for transfer, TRY IT. It can open up many morew options for you come residency (and thus the rest of your life). HOwever IM a little unclear from your post- do you mean transfering from another carib school to sgu (you wrote sga a few times). I should say that sgu takes very few transfers from other carib schools and never directly into clinicals.

    Pros? for some fields you stand a better chance at matching from sgu (the more competitive fields where sgu has a good track record comepared to some other schools)
    Also sgu grads can be licenesed in all 50 states. not all carib schools can.
    Cons? more expensive, and if you are looking at, say, FP or another relatively easy field to get into, why pay more if youre already established elsewhere?

    Ill lock this so you can continue on the threads below, just to keep things neat.
    Good luck.
