    Start May 2014, match in March 2017?

    Advertisements



    Hello,
    I've been admitted to the May 2014 class. When asking the advisor about a rough timeline for my journey, he said you could catch up to the March 2018 match as long as you do your rotations back-to-back in one location.

    Is this possible? will I have enough time to prepare for USMLE 2 and to finish my applications? I'm worried he might be saying this because it is only hypothetically possible but realistically impossible; I'm worried I might have 6 or more months time off waiting for the 2019 match. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    You can't do the 2017 match. I started in May and that would put you 8 months behind. Everything back to back takes 3 yrs 6 months at Ross. January start date you can do things back to back and still make it. You should plan for the 2018 match. I did May start date and that was amazing for the match having plenty of time to do rotations, etc etc.

    Edited to reflect correct dates.

    While the thread title asked about 2017, which is impossible, 2018 would be his match year.

    I think there was just a little confusion in #'s. I started Sept 2010 and had plenty of time for 2014, so starting May 2014, you should be easily set for 2018.
