How hard is it to get accepted to Wroclaw University of Technology? / Unis in general?

I know that it's off the topic of the original poster, but wow, for someone relying on hearsay, with obviously little knowledge and understanding of how the medical programmes in English work

Etc etc. The point remains that they do not produce high quality graduates in any way - as I repeatedly say, the course is treated as a joke by the university (although not to the students faces for obvious reasons) and the Polish students who realise that the international students are buying their education. You might want to ask yourself why many of the students themselves tend to be exceptionally bitter by their 3rd/4th year.

What you also need to know is that I know several of their lecturers. None of them have a positive opinion about the American students - they are seen as spoiled, lazy and arrogant.

It seems you are missing the boat entirely by failing to make the effort to understand what these programmes aim to achieve.

These programmes exist for one reason - to make money. It's easy money for the university and easy qualifications for the students. Let's not beat about the bush - the amount of graduates from the course who were good enough to graduate from American medical universities are low - very low.

the 4yr MD I made reference to in previous post requires a set of 'pre-med' education, which you could have easily checked.

Unfortunately for you, while they might have a BS degree, no attempt is made to consider how good the degree actually is. As I keep saying, it's an open door for those who are willing to pay the roughly $70k USD to the university.

Do you think that the gov'ts guaranteeing loans and respective medical bodies would be willing to consider accrediting a programme they were not happy with?

Many of them aren't taking loans to get there. I do know quite a few of them, and many of them fall into the "rich but stupid" category.

Note also, most of these alumni have no intention of staying/working in Poland, so they are not a threat to the 'superiorly grilled' Polish programme alumni when competing for work on the local market..

Is that what they told you? Ah, of course, they would never admit that they actually went back home to work as a paramedic, would they?

The fact that most of them have no intention of actually repaying Poland in any way for her hospitality says it all - the course exists to take money from gullible American students who think that it make them a doctor. It won't.

And yet you provide no facts what so ever to support these claims, pretty much another filthy crap on your side.

Dear delphiandomine, no need to be repeating yourself, it's clear you're clueless. There's nothing wrong in living in your own world, believing whatever makes you happy... But you are misinforming and thus discouraging potential students from coming to study in Poland. Believe me, competition is tough in this field, as there are tens of similar programmes in Central Europe. Also, by spitting bitterness and spreading bias in public space, you are effectively dragging the level of the forum down, and I refuse to partake in it.

The fact that most of them have no intention of actually repaying Poland in any way for her hospitality says it all - the course exists to take money from gullible American students who think that it make them a doctor. It won't.

Now I am certain you've got issues I certainly can't help you with. I dread to think a poor foreigner visiting Poland should run into you by chance - God help him ;-) So, have a nice life - just stay away, especially from Poznań, which I am frequenting!

Competition is tough to get students into the university, I agree - that's why entry standards are laughable. Spending ten minutes in their company tells you all you need to know - this is not the cream of American society that turn up here! Entry is open to *anyone* with a degree to the 4 year course that you mention. Even Justyna from Olstzyn with her degree in pedagogics from a private university would get accepted as long as she's got the money.

It is a sad, simple fact that the course exists solely to take money from those who have the ability to pay but not the ability to learn. I have friends that graduated from these programmes - they all have the same opinion, that the course sucks and that they wish they had realised this earlier.

Stay away? I live here :) I've seen first hand much of the behaviour that they indulge in - sulking in the hospital because they have to actually deal with patients, whining and moaning because people don't speak English in shops, having "parties" where they spend yet more time complaining about Poland, the list is endless. They're even nasty to their fellow Americans that actually live and work in Poland!

Is there any reason that you cannot get into a good engineering school in your own country?

It's a good school and worth studying there. Have you contacted the admissions tutor? He or she would be best placed to advise on this
