    Can some clear this up?

    Advertisements



    How is the Island housing arranged at Windsor? Is there a problem with clinical placement in terms of wait time? Who is teaching the basic sciences? Where are the faculty from and how are they in terms of their ability to speak English clearly? Is there a practice of failing students to collect additional fees?


    What is bottom line on tuition for basic sciences? What is total per semester? How about the clinicals?

    Housing is arranged through the school in various spots around the island and where you live depends on how much you want to spend. Ive heard there were issues with wait times, but before I even took the Step 1 they had me placed, so I dont see any problems. The teachers are all Indian and not difficult to understand after a few days if you are not in that demographic. Students claim they are failed on purpose, but its usually those that put in minimal work that find themselves in trouble. If you work hard you wont have any problems - this I know first hand. The flat rate is not exactly flat. If you do a search Ive posted exactly what my fees were for a single semester and it came out to an extra $1000 to $1200 not including food on top of the "flat" tuition rate. Clinicals are more expensive, and you pay $125 per week for 14 weeks to create the semester. You also have to pay $900 in malpractice insurance once per year. There is also a clinical sciences final exam that you take at some location here that is $300 or $500, not exactly sure. And there is also a $500 graduation fee with no graduation ceremony.

    so if you set up your own housing, will the school cover up to $1000 or are you completely on your own?

    The school will give you $1000 credit toward tuition costs. So if you prove that you are living in private housing outside of school housing, your tuition fees will be 3990 instead of 4990, the expenses you incur in your private housing such as deposits, rent, utilities, etc. will be of your own, hope that helps.

    Yup, this is exactly correct and in fact what I'm doing right now. If you find a decent place you don't have to worry about the stresses of the school handling your housing. There's plenty of good housing options around the island if you know where to look, and if you get the right place you can actually end up saving a lot of money.
