    Why Residency Match Rate is so High?

    Can someone please help to explain why match rate for this school is so high? Almost 60 students matched for residency in 2013 as per their web site:

    eustatiusmed [dot] edu [forward slash] residency-placements [forward slash] residency-placements-2013 [forward slash]

    Is it true? I'm seriously considering applying to this school based on the above information. Please provide any assistance that will help me with my decision.

    We're awesome like that.

    Actually we have a secret society (similar to Harvards Skull and Bones) that helps us to match. Dr. Oz is the leader for it. He does one hell of a keg stand.

    The one standout in this list is Khokher, Sairah who apparently matched Dermatology.

    One quick google shows that this person graduated in 2007, did a family medicine residency and is now some sort of instructor at RWJ.

    I guess that answers your question....

    It's true .. School has a good reputation around residency programs and alumni of the school look out for others. The current new ownership of the school will solidify those results by improving the program success rate. Another plus now is you get to spend your basic science on the island of Sint martin, one of the few islands that provide a lifestyle similar to living in the U.S :-)

    My point was that this list is fabricated. It is not a true representation of current graduates who obtained a residency in 2013.

    I'll put in my 2 cents as well. I just recently graduated from this school. And quite a few of these names are familiar. As a matter of fact some of them are my classmates/upper class-men. Some may have been transfer students as well. We all graduated at different times. Some needed more time to study and others needed more time for finances etc. But the fact is that this school isn't as bad as some of the folks make it out to be. I'd say the worst part of this school WAS the administration. The teachers we had were great for the most part and education we received was quite sufficient. It's not a secret that you have to put in the effort as well, and the professors and instructors were (and I believe ARE very supportive). New ownership/administration have done well so far and seem to have promising outlook for this school. Retrospectively if I had a chance to go to Big 4 + AUA, I would have, but I decided to go with Statia and I have made it even after dealing with some rough patches and so have my fellow classmates and upper class-men as well.

    Good Luck with your studies!
