    Entrance date/graduation/match

    Advertisements



    Ok, if you enter in May, if all goes smoothly, you finish in June three years later. So, if you enter in May' 13' you get out in June '16, right? Does that mean you can enter residency in July of '16 or is there something else to be aware of?
    thanks in advance....

    If you start May '13, if all goes smoothly, you'd finish Basic Sciences December 2014 and you would take Step 1 during your LOA in the 1st part of 2015. Then, you have 72 weeks of clinicals. So, you'd most likely apply for the 2017 Match.

    The only class that can make the 3 year out match is January and that is tight as hell. You would typically have to take Step 1 within 6 wks of leaving the island and race through everything else.

    In order to make the match you have to be in clinicals by an arbitrary date set by AUC in October of two years out. So Oct 2011 if you entered Jan 2010. Then add 72 wks (1 year 4ish months) gets you to Febish 2013 with no time factored for moves not getting your rotation, Step 2, etc. Hence why there is an arbitrary date (it was Oct 25 2011 for Jan 2010 entrants). You also need to factor in really having to be done with cores (so you can have a Step 2 CK score) and ideally an elective in something that matters for your August residency app. Lots of variables but in the end the date AUC sets is what matters and as you can see a May entrant cant make the date under any circumstance. This may have changed but I doubt it.

    Oh and did mention that you have to make 80% GPA and score a certain score on the comp to get to the point where even in theory you could schedule and take STEP within 6 weeks of leaving the island (their paperwork goes in before they leave the island vs everyone elses you doesnt go in until you pass the final comp a couple days before you leave)? And even if you pass Comp first time you still need the 80% GPA. So in the end you need 6 weeks plus 3-4 for scores to be reported + 1-2 weeks to schedule to make that August 15ish (the day you leave the island) to October 25 date (the date AUC sets) I mentioned earlier. Obviously very tight.
