so LAU and AUB med are out of your reach? Frankly I don't know how Caribbean schools view LAU's undergrad so you should check with them.

I appleid to lau, and i am still waiting for the interveiw to be done to know their decision, but i want to have several choices in case lau didn't give me an acceptance.

Do you have any idea what are my chances, and are the Caribbean universities better than lau.

Could you tell me which university should i apply in the Caribbean.

thank you :D

regarding which way is better LAU/AUB or Caribbean.. well that's the million dollar (or $150-300K!) question because I'm in a similar situation.. I'm looking at both AUB and Caribbean..

the best Caribbean universities are Saint George University, American University of the Caribbean, Ross University and Saba University (they all allow you to practice in all of the US and Canada).. all other universities are less competitive and in my opinion you shouldn't go to them unless you definitely can't go to the "big 4" mentioned above.

LAU didn't graduate a class yet right? it might be better to still stick with LAU if you get in, come to the US for some research or do an M.Sc. or two, and then you might be in line for a nice residency.
