    Fraud Bribery and Corruption

    Advertisements



    Dear potential students: Don't waste your money and go here unless you have millionaire parents. This school is run on bribes from wealthy parents who will go to heck and back just to make sure their kids have the title of doctor.

    Bottom line: You will fail out of the school in 2nd semester or 4th semester (twice) unless if you fork over > $100k in ransom/bribe("donation") on top of all tuition and fees. When you fail a class, they will mention the school being expensive and if you play along they WILL ask for ransom ("donation"). I won't give the exact amount they asked me to "donate", as to maintain my anonymity, as I'm sure the "donation" rate is variable.

    Dear first/second semester students: If you scored below a 50 on ANY of your first or second block exams, pack your bags and go home, never look back. That score is a huge red flag indicator that they manipulated your grades and/or your exams.

    Fact: Not all students have the same exam questions
    Fact: NBME exams are sold here

    If you fail a class the first time, they will act all nice and cuddly and act though its no big deal to get more tuition out of you. Don't fall for it. Take the loss for one semester and go back and apply to a US school (unless if your parents are loaded).

    This school is on the verge of shutting down and the company R3 which owns them owns 2 other caribbean med schools. They are funneling the money from one school to another. Even the fafsa they claim they are approved for is for the other schools, and they illegally use that here. There are a huge number of lawsuits against the company. Unless if you have a crapton of money, you won't be able to afford the lawyer fees to fight a case against them.

    This is not fair man. I even gave them extra 20,000$ for assurance purposes during each of the 5 semesters on the island and they said they were gonna pass me but then they didn't passed me after the 5th semester comprehensive nbme and no one talked anything after that. 50,000$ they want for the comprehensive is too much. Then they are not responding e-mails or anything else like nothing ever happened.

    Holy blippity blip! Dudes, I attend Saba university one of the schools owned by R3, this kind of ratchet stuff goes on down here too. We're the school that gets FAFSA by the way. Saba admin took money from all the students in a couple different semesters a few semesters back and did not provide a course and handed out false passing grades to everyone so the school can get accreditation. This is not a lie or attempt to make the school look bad, so many of us have proof.

    DO NOT ATTEND ANY SCHOOLS ASSOCIATED WITH R3, you are signing up for a destructive headache.

    Ok so what? First of all its assurance and not bribe. Also its donation and not obligation. You could easily do a lump sum. If you can't afford basic tuition, you should not be here. And in no way is it ransom since you could leave the school at any time.

    Hey sorry to burst your bubble buddy but this school caters towards a certain lifestyle. Obviously that lifestyle is out of your financial reach, so you need to quit spoiling for the people who this school caters to. The assurance is a donation. It is NOT AN OBLIGATION. It only assures you’ll pass your classes or you’ll get the tuition back minus all fees. Nothing more. You did pass your classes, so what’s the problem here?

    Are you kidding me? It is most definitely bribe since the school is taking money under the table to "assure" an unfair advantage to pass students. They then just straight up fail the students who paid the bribe if they don't pay more bribe to pass the NBME comp. And your second comment pretty much confirms you work for the school since they're the only ones who keep reiterating this school caters to people who can afford a certain lifestyle. Aka, "if you pay us a lot of money, we'll pass you". And if someone calculates the $100k they pay for bribe during the 5 semesters on top of tuition, it evens out at roughly $175k for basic sciences. Even if they get the $75k for tuition back, they still lost $100k. That is just one of the problems here. Second problem is you pretty much admitted the school takes bribes, and only caters to rich people. You must be so proud. Oh well, I am taking screenshots of everything and sending it over to the people who will actually do something in the US Department of Education. All the scumbags who paid their way through and acted like tough jobs will suffer consequences to the full extent of the US law.

    Hey I don't think its fair to all the students if you put out information like this. Some students have actually repeated every semester and have invested a lot into their education and the school. Those students don't deserve to have their education go to waste. There was recently a huge meeting between professors because someone from an accreditation committee saw these posts. If the school loses its accreditation, all our hard work and tuition goes to waste as well. Going forward, we don't know what's going to happen. I would seriously advise prospective students to steer clear away from this school because its totally unpredictable. It is true that most people who pass the step actually are the ones who repeated every semester on the island so stayed there 3 years.

    I also left the island during first semester because of the school's shady tactics. I can confirm they do this. All the red flags are here on this website, but so are manipulators who trick people into thinking everything will be ok easy breezy. Last semester they pulled the same thing with changing exam questions. During block 3 in histology all the students who failed had half of the exam questions removed. Like if the question was supposed to be 4 sentences, they'd leave out the first 2 sentences for the students they wanted to fail. They control 100% who passes and who fails. When students confronted the professor, he tried to blame the students for cheating and breaching the contract and discussing exam questions after the exam. Like ***? I dipped. I honestly feel bad for the people who get scammed during 4th semester. They need to file a lawsuit against R3 and also try to recover damages and lost wages. They wasted 2 years of these students life, and possibly destroyed any chance of them becoming a physician. I also don't doubt one bit that the school takes bribes. It seemed people from a certain ethnic group had it way easier, despite some of them being complete idiots. You'd wonder how the heck did they pass? Makes sense now.

    Lol you should see the new testimonial videos the school put up after seeing this thread. They're practically begging to trap more victims. Everything in this thread is so true tho lol. From the moment you get on the island to the residence hall you can tell something is off. Nothing is like how you expected. If you get lucky and you talk to the upperclassmen you realize that this school a trap. After first block you'll see the slackers are the ones breezing through their classes because papa's wallet brute forced a pass and hard working students struggling. During the interview the admissions lady adriana tells you not to visit this website because it's just some angry students who got dismissed. She just forgets to tell you that more than 80% of the people who enroll at this school get dismissed.

    I hate to say this, but this is probably the most truthful thread about the corruption at SMU. There are lawsuits against R3 all the time. They settle out of court for most of the cases. I find it quite problematic that people don't know they are defrauded, or I'm sure if enough people got together they could do a class-action lawsuit.

    And this is exactly why students should avoid this school at all costs.
