im guessing this is the reason why the DO are expanding like crazy
the schools pass through less legistration..prob much cheaper to build..and are mostly in rural areas...as opposed to the big city MDs
the DOs are growing like crazy..and i think are doing anything they can to cut the islands off
Nah. More DO schools = lower standards for the top 4 carribean schools. Admission standards will drop in the carribean at the top and work its way down. At the bottom you still have people with 1.9 GPAs and 12 MCATs ready to become House.
