Got my diploma in the mail. 🙂




Although there are several graduation dates per year when diplomas are issued out, there is only one graduation ceremony each year, which takes place in May on St. Maarten. I always thought that it was beautiful to end your journey where you began, on the island, but now with a different perspective. As much as Irene and I would love to go back to the island to attend my own graduation ceremony,  we don’t know if we will be able to make it at this moment. Nevertheless, I’m happy with receiving my diploma through the mail, and perhaps I’ll take the Hippocratic Oath by myself.

    Congratulations! I’m thinking of applying to medical schools in the Caribbean as well, but I’m not sure as yet. I love your blog, and wish the best for you once you start your residency!

    Well done Benji! Congratulations. I’m very happy for you 🙂

    I just applied to AUC. Your blog helped shed light on a lot of concerns. I chose AUC as my primary choice because of your detailed and consistent blog.

    Thank you
