I would advise you to NOT apply to Xavier. If you choose to attend, there are a few questions you should ask before you give them any money.

1. What is the faculty turn-over rate? This school is notorious for losing faculty. About half of their faculty have disappeared in the last 6 months. That means other faculty have to take over courses that they are not prepared -- and not sometimes not qualified - to teach.

Are the faculty profiles on the Xavier website up-to-date? There are several "faculty" on their website that no longer work there. Misleading the public, potential students, and accreditors.

3. How many faculty are U.S.-trained? Xavier is supposedly preparing students to take the USMLE and do clinicals in the US, but how many of their faculty have even taken the Steps? Or worked in a US hospital? Or even visited the US?

4. What is the course schedule? There is NO set curriculum. They post a new schedule of lecture topics each week, and sometimes that even changes from day-to-day. And the schedule chaos is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to poor communication and organization!

5. What kind of research experience can students get? Do NOT count on getting any research experience. They are no lab spaces or resources to conduct research. The faculty turn-over is so high that you will not be able to get a research mentor to help you develop, conduct, and publish research. Xavier has an IRB on paper, but it is does not actually operate. Students who submitted an IRB proposal months ago are still waiting for a response from the "IRB."

There is more I can write, but I think you get the idea: Beware!
