    Auc - August '06 Deferment

    Advertisements



    Hey...........so I've been accepted to the May '06 semester, however, due to personal reason I am unable to attend in may. I requested a deferment to the August '06 semester through my admissions counselor about a month ago.

    I've contacted my admissions counselor about half a dozen times since then and she keeps saying the admissions committee is reviewing my deferment request. I'm kind of worried that they will reject my deferment request and tell me I have to attend in May '06. What are the odds of having my deferment request granted? Should I be worried?

    no worries

    hi, i faced the same problem as you in 2004, but there's nothing much to worry about. if they accepted you already, they should try everything they can to put you in the Fall class....
    anyways... welcome to AUC

    I got accepted to Aug, but I have been trying to change to May so that I can start earlier.

    Congrats on getting in. They are really cleaning this place up. More so than most US school imo and I use to work at one. It may be harder to defer now. They don't want ANY rif-raf around here of any kind.

    FYI: Imo I would start in the Fall if you can. I am 4th now and started back in Jan. It's been my viewpoint that the larger the class the more voice they have about changing things like curving grades, moving exams etc. Our class rarely has had anything "special" like this. We usely get something along the lines of "It suxs to be you" as a reply.

    We only have 3 classes in fourth and they still have two exams scheduled back to back this next thurs and friday. We asked for the friday exam to be moved to mon. The reply we got back "no". In contrast; the Fall class had all their anatomy lab practicals changed to multiple choice. So numbers matter.

    Problems are viewed as statistical around here and most likely every med school. Then again; statistics is nothing more than people with the tears wiped away. I stole that last line from a class slide. How true.

    I disagree. I think starting in May works out better in the end(matching, breaks, etc). Sure, it might seem like things get done for the Sept class but most if not all sept classes are whiners(I'm speaking of the reputation of the class, not the individual).

    Sept class

    I agree with Micro on this one.

    I started in a Sept class, and that was a mistake on my part. The Sept class is larger, more competitive, stronger scholastically, straight out of their undergraduate school, some lack maturity. The September class is larger and, my personal opinion, it's easier to get picked off. Just due to the nature of size, team spirit and helping your fellow students isn't as strong in the larger classes, again, larger is usually more competitive. If you are a strong student then this may not be an issue for you. I am a borderline student, (a challenge at every obstacle) so if I can find something that may help me with that extra point of two I'll take it (minus cheating).

    May and Jan have less students for the school to put out into the work force and, it is my belief, that the school tries to keep these classes in tact a little longer. I have also found, again, my own personal opinion, that the faculty like the May and Jan class better, which doesn't hurt in the long run. As the earlier post said, the larger class is able to produce change, but it is usually from more complaints and debates with the staff. Just my personal opinion. Let the debate begin!
