    If AUA won't sponsor you, you can find another school that will. You need to make sure you'll pass though, take review courses and do practice questions etc. Don't give up.

    thank you.

    Sorry to hear about your situation . May I suggest that before you try one more time , you reasses your study plan and pin point weak areas ?
    You should contact your school to see what their position is with regards to situations such as yours ( I'm sure it has happened before ) . They may require you to repeat 5th semester or some other component of the basic science curriculum since you may need to work on your foundation . You are already a yr away from basic sciences , so remedial work will def help you .

    Call your school and hear what they say with regards to your situation .
    Good luck ...and don't give up !

    There is a Step review built into the new 5th semester program in ATL. You do a week of board prep didactics / case reviews and alternate with a week in the clinics. Absent that, I think you're pretty much on your own to do PASS/Falcon/Kaplan/Etc.
