    UNIBE Jan 2015

    I wanted to get in touch with other people that are also starting UNIBE Medical School in January 2015. Please, It would be great if we can form a group and together we can help each other out. Also, if you are in the process of applying or thinking about it, I could provide you with information. I did my application and unlike anything I have read here, mine was a very smooth one. My girlfriend also decided to apply and she also had the same experience. Again, if you have any doubts or concerns of the process I will be more than happy to guide you. I cannot say anything about classes or the school, yet because I have not started.

    Thank you !

    Remember you guys can doo this!!!
    It is going great. We already are pretty much used to how the things are here and honestly I love it haha. Yeah sure some things are slow like Claro (which is the internet, TV and phone provider), but anything else you can get it done fairly fast. Also, I love the fact that anything deliver to your house not only the Colmados (little markets) there are billions of them lol, but any restaurant you want KFC, Taco Bell, Jade Tarayaki...anything you call them and they deliver your food lol. School is going super, you make a bunch of friends from the start and I feel really part of the Medicine family. The professors are great and some of them really funny. What I really like is the fact that they treat you really well they want you to achieve your goal and they are always willing to help. When you come, you are going to meet Elizabeth, whom I like to refer as our "Yoda" hahaha she is your person to go to when in doubt and she is always available for you so that is awesome. Other than that, I am in paradise LOL.

    Dr SMR, I would love some advice on how apply to UNIBE. I completed my undergrad here in the US but did not take any of my pre-med requirements (with the exception of one). I haven't been to school in over three years and so I may not be able to obtain solid letters of recommendation at this point. Do you have any suggestions? I was thinking of enrolling in a local university in order to take courses in the sciences and build relationships with professors and then apply in about a year. Ultimately, I would love to know what the process was like for gaining admission into the pre med program at UNIBE. A big thanks in advance! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey bigred2012,

    Yogur case is similar to mine. When u applied to UNIBE I was out of school for a year and a half. Honestly, I would suggest getting in touch with some old professors and asking if there is a chance of you getting the letters. If you see that this is absolutely not an option then go ahead and start in a local college to get to know some of your professors and ask them. Now, I would recommend starting the process of collecting all the documents required by UNIBE since some process may take some time. If you haven't taken any science classes, do not worry many students haven't and they start from the medical program and in no time they are in medicine. The way I did everything was that I applied for the September semester but notice my documents weren't all together so I decided to postpone it to January and after submitting everything I got an interview with them and then two weeks from that date I was accepted. In conclusion, just gather all the documents. See about the letters (I'm sure some professors will help you) and then see where you stand and take it from there. The important thing is to go ahead and move forward. Good luck my friend and if you need anything else do not hesitate to contact me again.

    Thank you for your quick and awesome reply, all of the information is very helpful. Just curious, how is the program so far? Do you feel like you are on track for practicing medicine here in the US? And finally, were you able to secure loan money to cover for the costs for the pre-med portion of the program? Thanks for everything!

    The he program is great (in my opinion). There are a little bit of everything. Students that complain and say they are not a good university and others that stay quite, eat their books and perform amazing. It all depends on you and how much effort you put into achieving your dreams. I am currently in my 4th semester since I needed to finish the organic classes and physics. In sept I'll be in the medical program. However; I do know many students in their 11th semester and even 14th (there are 16th semester to complete the program) and they all say the same. It's how much and how bad you want it. You need to study hard and make sure you perform well and learn all you can. No school anywhere in the world will spoon feed you and some students unfortunately feel that way. The loans are given by de US department of education and are available for your pre-med and medical program as well. Also, if needed you could apply to Sallie Mae as well.

    Heey guys, you don't know how happy i am to find this site. I am applying to UNIBE for May'16 and i am so nervous, are you guys like on it? I was in the UCE ( a medical school in San Pedro de Macoris RD) but federal loans got cut off. I would like to know how you guys are going in your classes? Are you enjoying the life in the capital? Do you think the school is preparing you for the STEPS?

    Classes are going fine. The capital is good, really hot but it is good lol. I am really happy with the Medical program and they do prepare you for the Steps.
