    TWD Status vs Leave of Absence.

    Advertisements



    Hey everyone,

    I finally passed the comp the second time around and am studying for the Step right now. I have until Nov 30th, 2008 to take the step and have scores reported back before being placed on TWD status. However I was planning to take it mid december which would place me in TWD status.

    My question is would it be better to be TWD status or take a leave of absence? I feel they are both equally bad but any advice would be appreciated thanks.

    I plan to rock the Step BTW!!!!

    easy, just take it when you feel ready. Don't take a leave of absence. There are plenty of people that have been in your situation and are now fine.

    From what i heard was that is you go into TWD status your loan repayment starts right away, but if you take a leave of absence your loan repayment will go into affect only if you do not start rotations by the last date on your leave of absence. Call ross registrar for more info.

    Did you schedule a date for the Step?

    Peeps.... a TWD holds no weight on a low/fail Step score. I think it will be easier to explain a TWD over a 185 or a failed Step score. It is hard sometimes to look at the big picture when you are just itching to start clinicals, but you want the best score you can get, so don't sweat the TWD.
