    Hey, I'm debating going to UNIBE, all the horrible critics!
    Have you contacted the school in any way?

    Did admissions tell you anything else about getting in? you are a junior in college now? Im a sophomore and I want to apply after I get my bachelors to UNIBE's premed program! Can you please tell me everything you know about the program and what UNIBE has told you? What type of applicants are they looking for? How your cousin like it/ is passing the classes?

    Thank you soo much!

    Unibe last option

    Hello everyone!
    Please consider other medical schools before applying to UNIBE. I would suggest trying to get into one of the top 10 medical schools in the caribbean (Ross, SABA, AUC, St. George's (Grenada), etc.) before applying to UNIBE. I am not denying anyone on here the opportunity to study medicine at this institute, simply stating that this school should be your last, and I mean LAST option. I have been a medical student for some time here, and the only thing I have to be grateful for, is that UNIBE gave me the opportunity to graduate with an M.D. degree and therefore a ticket to the USMLE steps, that's it! There are some good teachers here, but unfortunately they are a minority, a very small minority, and even then, they will not give you the necessary tools to do well in medicine, let alone prep you for the boards.
    Another important point, when applying out of the U.S. you have to take into consideration whether the program your applying to offer all of their clerkships, that is the last two years of medical school, at U.S. hospitals. The next step is to find out whether those hospitals are actually "teaching hospitals". UNIBE offers two semesters abroad, but not all of their hospitals are teaching hospitals. When you graduate as IMG one of the most important credentials on your resume besides a good step 1 score will be whether the school you graduated from rotated you through U.S. teaching hospitals, this credential WILL set you apart from the IMG that came from a program that DID NOT rotate through U.S. teaching hospitals, Non-teaching U.S. hospitals, or one that only rotated for 1 or 2 semesters in the U.S.

    Hello valechka,
    There is actually a typo in my previous post, I haven't graduated from UNIBE yet, I'm still a student there, and I really don't want to give out too much personal information about my record on here, because there are school employees that go on this website all the time. The reason why I can state the previous information with confidence is because I have four immediate family members that are M.D.'s, three of which practice in the U.S. Your GPA is more than enough to get in, however, its also high enough for you to apply to the other schools I previously mentioned.
    I totally agree with you about the students. Although I have legitimate issues with the school of medicine, there are a lot of bad bad students here. These people should not have been accepted to study medicine anywhere! But UNIBE is trying to filter those types of students out with their new requirements, and I can tell you that I really do see the difference with the new students, they are a whole different class of people.
    I am currently preparing for the step now. To answer your question in how hard is the prep? Well that's a combination of factors: how much did you study during basic sciences on your own? Are you using the right materials for step 1? I would stick to Kaplan books plus their videos, BRS Constanzo for Physiology (her cases and problems book is excellent too), Constanzo Physiology Textbook for class, Goljan Rapid Review Pathology for Path, Microbiology Made Ridiculously Simple for Micro, High Yield Neuroanatomy is good, of course your first aid for step 1, and UWORLD for your question bank is the most important. Once you have gone through Kaplan with the videos and their question book, and have read the previous books once, your ready for the first aid and DIT (Doctors in Training). Remember you need a good 6-8 months for step prep, but a lot of students in the U.S. and other good caribbean med schoos only take 4-8 weeks, because they have been fed shelf exams from day 1 with USMLE style questions.
    My honest opinion valcheka? If you can get in to Ross, St. Matthew's, SABA, or St. George's in Grenada, do so, if you can't come here.

    The place is really nice. I lived here while I went to Unibe but I just finished so it's time to move on. The apartment is optimal for someone who is just arriving as it has everything you need. I also included a glass desk (great for drawing diagrams) with chair, bookshelf, etc. There is gated parking and I just had the sofa upholstered with microfiber and the apartment painted..it's really neat ! Price also includes maintenance !

    OMG everything so true, It's just that everybody loves the unibonche, (party university), just because if you can pay it you'll graduate, I have never done an essay for a final grade, until i saw it myself at UNIBE. In the hospital, you don't do anything, because the doctors don't teach, the students are "very privilegde". Sorry, i know i may be hurting someone's feelings right now, but let's keep it real this forum it's to help each other, and honestly sending you or telling you that it's the best university because it's private, it's so wrong.
