    What is being a Medical Student like in Aruba at Xavier's?

    Advertisements



    Hey everyone I have some questions I'd like to ask about the classes you take at Aruba:

    1. How many chapters do you cover in a lecture

    how long are these chapters?

    How difficult is it to read and understand the material presented in the chapters ?

    2. How many exams do you have per class and are the exams multiple choice or short answers?

    3. How would you describe the teaching style of the professors?

    4. Is the MCAT a good indicator of how the med school material is and how well you're going to perform in med school ?

    (I know most of these questions have already been asked, but I'd appreciate it if you can still answer these questions for me !)

    Thanx !

    1) depends on the teacher, u'll cover everything in a text book usually. As for understanding, its not that hard if you read it a couple of times, most of the time u will get it.
    2) U have 2 midterms and 1 finall all 50 questions M/C
    3)Some are good some suck
    4)No MCAT is nothing like the USMLE or not a good indicator of anything. After having written both MCAT is a joke compared to USMLE i thought.
    Any more questions PM me.
    Hope this helps
