    I only take one course per semester, so it cost around 1,000 dollars. The program gives you around 12,000 dollars per semester, so if you subtract 1,000 dollars from it, you get 11,000 dollars for medical school. Spartan cost around 5,000 dollars per semester, if you subtract that you get 6,000 dollars for yourself. Saint lucia is very cheap, so you can definitely survive on 6,000 dollars per semester

    Study Semesters

    Happy New Year! I hope you get refreshed again after such hectic schedule. So mentioning Spartan's study semester, can someone choose to take 2 semesters instead of three per year?

    Inwould speak with SHSU also. Very often schools develop relationships with universities so their students can attend and possibly even receive tuition discounts.

    Thank you.
    fail rate is extremely low, but it really depends on what you mean by fail rate

    If you are talking about getting dismiss by the school due to low academic scores, then i say it's definitely non-existence. The school will not kick you out if you fail the whole semester, it's up to the students if they wanna continue or not.

    If fail rate as in failing a class and having to retake it or repeating the semester, then I say there's a good number of students.
    A good number of students had to do a make up exam, repeat the class, or repeat the semester. I personally think that it's no big deal, either way we are all getting an MD.

    Residency and passing the steps is a different story
