    Going to SGU next semester, Need helpful advice

    So yea. Trying to get a heads up about living on the island. Stuff thats not on the school website.

    • Can anyone who has gone there give me some pointers as to what to pack/ not pack (not the obvious things, but stuff you couldn't get on the island)
    • Any suggestion on a phone plan? I have an iphone, do I need to get a sim card there?
    • How was on-campus housing?
    • What do students eat while staying there? -Is there a market, food places, cafe, ect. nearby?
    • Any suggestions on the Student health insurance? Is it necessary?

    Basically, what pointers can you give me that you wish you knew early on.
    I appreciate any and all advice!

    Careful with the Student Health Insurance. Back in the States they told me the never heard of the company.
    On campus housing is small, expensive, but safe. Students usually hook up with friends off campus after term1 or 2.
    Students eat on campus or go to IGA, a nice air-conditioned supermarket. Spices can make your cheapie ramen or
    pinto beans a whole lot more tasty.
    Enjoy the island and try to avoid turning into a study robot.
    Also keep your sense of humor on IT/curriculum meltdowns: you will experience over 100 of them in your medical education at SGU.

    One thing is that basic medical care is very inexpensive even paying out of pocket. Like if you need to see a Dr and get some antibiotics, it will be a fraction of what it would cost in the US.

    You sound like a Nigerian scammer.

    I can tell by the use of your language.

    No one, these days uses "dear" to address anyone except if you're from Nigeria

    "Fock off" and get off this website

    This website keeps getting weirder and weirder. Why would you accuse this person of being a "Nigerian scammer"
    for simply using the word "dear," which is often employed as a matter of politeness. Are you trying to spin the thread away from the
    assertion that the hokey "Health Insurance" promised by the SGU has little actual clout back in the USA, when push comes to shove?

    Mr/Ms braindead, have you bothered to look at Crions other posts? Africans, particularly Nigerians, typically use certain words that easily come across as part of the scammer vocabulary.

    Have you ever received Nigerian or African scam emails in your inbox?

    I don’t care about student health insurance posted in this thread. What’s offensive is how scammers come in and try to insert themselves.

    Wow , you pegged him as a Nigerian for using the word "Dear." Pretty clever. Have you ever considered working for the CIA?
    Forget about the bigger issue of the phony (or at least flimsy) "health Insurance" offered by SGU, focus on the bigger issues, like (gasp) possible African ethnicity.
    No one should be allowed to post online if African, right? Let's keep all posters' residences limited to 1000 miles from Las Vegas.

    You should focus on finishing med school, “Dear”

    Why the “fock” are you so singularly focused on this student health insurance non-issue?

    Basically, you are a muthafocker, Dear!!

    If you want to go all night with this and deprive yourself of sleep, go right ahead.

    Just focus on your schooling.

    There’s no guarantee you will even end up becoming a physician.
