I am a current student at SJSM and yes, it is legit!
That being said, taking the Caribbean route is definitely not easy and there are a lot of hoops to jump through. I know plenty of people from my school who are now in residency spots - both in Canada and the USA. The percentage of students who make it is not crazy high, but with hard work and determination it can be done. Caribbean schools are a feasible option for people who can not get into medical school for whatever reason - and there are plenty! Everyone has their own reasons for even looking into Caribbean schools.
I have been keeping a blog of my journey so far, anyone who is considering St. James or any other Caribbean medical school is more than welcome to check it out.

I am always happy to answer any questions people have about the process!
