    Today, Sept 14, 2009, Windsor started looking good

    Advertisements



    To recap the last few weeks:

    I started at San Juan Bautista, in surgery.

    I found out its a 6 week rotation.

    I called 5 times and emailed 3 before finding out that the program at SJB is "being evaluated".

    I got denied for a loan based on my GPA. (It doesn't matter that I passed the Step)

    I was told that I should contact "my mom, my dad, or an aunt" to get the $20,000 I would need for this semester. In response to "what am I supposed to do?" I was told, "we can set up a payment plan."

    A Ms. T the "graduate affairs committee" told me that she would not be writing my MSPE until I am graduate....I need it to transfer to SJB. She did not seem pleased that I did not know it was not a form.

    Windsor has clinicals, right?

    AUA is changing the 6 weeks surgery rotation in SJB or AUA is changing all surgery rotations from 12 to 6?

    My understanding

    Is that they are debating whether to change it to 6 weeks as we speak! (New York office never sleeps!)

    If they decide to keep it at 12 weeks, then I'll do 6 weeks in a surgical specilization elsewhere.
