    SGU Interview

    I was invited to interview at SGU less than a week after I applied. Obviously I was thrilled, but I can't help thinking that they don't do thorough file reviews until after interviews or something. Has anyone else experienced this? My interview is next week, so any tips would also be great...

    SGU vs. Ross vs. AUC for hurricanes?

    Hi - anyone know if sgu is as likely to get hit by hurricanes as other caribbean schools? I'm trying to get in touch with someone who works there to ask this question, but I thought I'd see if anyone here knows. Having to move midway through school sounds like a nightmare.

    SGU MD admission

    Does anyone have an idea of how the admissions process works at SGU ( pre and post interview). Do they look at your grades before granting the interview? If so then what is the reason for the committee meeting AFTER interview to decide whether you are accepted or not.
