    Starting Unibe in May '06 ....looking for others.

    Hi all,

    The application process for Unibe was lenghty but fair and not at all difficult. What took the most time was tracking down old Professors for the letters of recommendation and obtaining my Transcrips from my Colleges and University. (One of my schools made an error in my transcript and it took 3 months to fix!) I initially planned to start in January but I did not have all my documents in place by the deadline. Instead of sending an incomplete application (which is a surefire way to get denied) I waited for the next semester.

    I was accepted for the May semester and I'm looking for any other applicants that are starting school then. All of my pre-med transfers were accepted and I will start directly in the Medical program.

    If anyone that is starting in May wants to contact me to share info., fears, questions, advice, meet up for coffe in Santo Domingo etc., please do so. My E-mail is: Lufega24@gmail.com please write 'UNIBE" in the title.


    Thanks and good luck to all

    Hun,
    I would advise you to stay away from UNIBE. This school is a complete scam. It's all about stealing your money. I made the mistake of going there and i'm trying to get out ASAP. It's rare that you here people in the school not complain unless they've been exposed to worse. If i were you i would try AUA, they have a premed program.

    advice for Hotdoc06

    Hotdoc-

    As I dont know who you are, I am not going to attack your views towards the education at UNIBE. Yes, UNIBE is lacking in may ways, but please take some responsibility for your own deficiencies. I see that you looked at bunch of schools before "settling" on UNIBE (perhaps it was a money issue as your were trying to find a school that had Stafford loans). I wish you the best in whatever you do....but please be a big girl (or boy). If UNIBE is not for you (and it is not for everyone, eventhough it has served many others well), L E A V E. I am sure that with the class size that UNIBE has this semester, it will give the teachers one less test to correct.

    Less time at the beach and at the discotecas and more time in the biblio does the trick everytime.

    Suerte.

    On admissions...

    Hi , I am the Dean of International Affairs at UCNE. Universidad Catolica Nordestana, in San Francisco de Macoris, about an hour and a half from where you are in Santo Domingo. At UCNE, we try to complete all your paperwork ourselves to make it easier for students. We have an excellent Medical School, with an Aprox. 5 year program. We have an office in San Juan, P.R.. If you desire to communicate, feel free to do so. At this time we are processing applications for May 2008. You may share this info with friends. If there is anything at all I can help you with, let me know. By the way, you picked a good school. Thank You

    I see I got a sticky on this post. That's very cool. I posted this before I started Unibe a couple of years ago. A lot has happened since. I just finished basic sciences and I'm preparing to take my USMLE Step 1. I am finishing Dr. Najeebs program which is very good and after I will do Kaplan. See, you can do both!

    I think Unibe has a lot of potentials. I heard a rumor that the owners (the Azures?) are getting involved personally and cleaning house. This is something good. Unibe has many great professors but It also has horrible ones. However, it always comes down to the student and how much effort they will put into anything. There's only so much a prof. can teach you. The rest, you learn on your own anyways. What happens is people are dragged out to sea by the current. This means they have a bad prof. who doesn't teach well and never goes to class, so people decide not to study either. This is bad.

    I will say though, the school does listen and care about their students. In the event you have a prof that shows no interest in teaching, it's usually not very difficult to get that person fired.

    If you want to go to a top notch foreing medical school, then consider the top 5. In the end though, it's all the same. We all have to pass our exams just the same.

    About Unibe...

    I receive a lot of emails from people wanting to know my opinion about Unibe and whether they should enroll there or not.

    My opinion is totally subjective and might not accurately represent what Unibe is all about. So I would be doing a disservice to you instead of a favor.

    Attending Unibe or any other foreign medical school, will provide you with an opportunity to write the USMLE's. This is THE only thing that really matters. What you get out of your medical education is directly proportional to what you put into it. It doesn't matter where you go, as long as you study your *** off you will succeed.

    Pick a school that's convenient for you and your particular lifestyle. Some school like Ross (from what I've heard) are pretty much the only source of economy for that island so you wont always find what you need when you need it. Other schools like Unibe are found in cities with most of the commodities you're used to in the states. Again, pick a school because it agrees with the kind of lifestyle you're willing to live for the next 4 years.

    If you're worried about reputation, apply to any of the big 5. It shoulnd't be too difficult.

    My reasons for choosing Unibe are purely sentimental. I was born in the Dominican Republic and moved away at a young age. I found this a perfect chance to study medicine and get in touch with my roots at the same time.

    If it were not for these sentimental reasons, I would have pick the farthest and most remote school I could have found. I have a bit of an adventurous streak.

    I hope this helps!

    Hi guys,
    Im planning to start in January 2012 but Im going through the process of legalizing all the documents in Miami and Cuba(birth certificate and High School Diploma) which is very difficult. I am worried about other comments about UNIBE loosing Federal Loans, does anyone have any idea that would be helpfull? Also, how hard is to get accepted without two letters from professors? Thank you and hope to see you next year!!!
