    pros and cons of Xavier

    Advertisements



    Cons:
    Few facilities (no cafeteria, no dormitory)
    Brand new school with no record (WHICH IS ONE CON THAT OUTWEIGHS MOST PROS)
    Expensive apartments, groceries, etc.
    Uniforms (which is just a Xavier shirt and closed toed shoes worn Monday through Thursday)

    Pros:
    Small class sizes (teachers are intersted in students' success)
    Low admission standards
    Good professors
    Constantly trying to make itself better (expanding, addressing complaints)
    Good island (comfortable, no hurricanes, people speak English, tourist area)
    Low tuition
    Prepares for the USMLE
    pass/fail grades show on transcripts

    the uniforms are required but they give you the shirt but you have to buy more if you want, the school COO is very hands on and always there to address your concerns, such as the cafeteria situation and facilities, which btw are being arranged in a newly acquired building. The COO attempted to buy a apartment complex for the purpose of student housing but the owner was being unreasonable and wouldnt agree on a price, as for students per cadavear it depends on the class size, but this semester it was 6.......
