    Pre 5th Semester leave of absence.....

    Advertisements



    I recently completed Med4, passed the Comp on first attempt, spent 6 weeks doing Falcon Review on the island, and currently on 6 week independent study. I am inquiring as to the feasibility of taking a 3 month leave of absence, preparing wholeheartedly to nail a 99 on Step1, and then starting 5th semester...I need the extra time to be ready, and I do not want to "muddy the waters" dealing with a pre clinical semester right now. Will the school accept this reasoning for taking a leave of absence...or will it look bad to a residency board ? Thanks for any input...

    AUA won't sign off your STEP 1 papers unless you have passing 5th semester grade.
