    I love SMU! If you would like information on this school, let me know and I can give you a real idea of what student life is like and how I think the teachers are with students.

    Come on now, what is the point of that useless post? People are looking for real information here, not someone who is simply just against SMU. Don't you have better things to do, like study for your classes, if you are even in a school that is...

    mdrod, you know your going to get alot of hell for that post..
    yeah there are some cheaters, but every school has its cheaters. You cant do well on shelf or step1 if you cheat, and since EVERYONE cheats then how do you explain the increasingly good shelf scores and increasingly successful pass rate on the USMLE step 1?
    As far as attendance, what do you recommend the school does to enforce the rule? I have 5 friends that were caught for skipping and signing in last semester, they were fined and lost all absences for the remainder of the semester. If they missed class, they had to repeat the course (more money for SMU).
    p.s. where did you see people cheating? what class? biochem? anatomy? big whoop.. such low yield for step1.. find it happening in path, pharm, micro.. then theres a problem, but so many people are repeating, I guess they just aren't good cheaters huh?

    I was on a disciplinary committee a year ago or so at SMU. It was for students signing in and then not being in class when roll was called (which is random). The students were punished, and harsher punishments are handed out for each incident. Let me say that the administration and many of the professors take this very seriously.

    The sky is falling, the sky is falling!!! Are you for real? People cheating? This is not unique to SMU. Worry about yourself and study hard to get through all your classes with no problems.

    Hi State,

    Well, atleast you went to class.

    How are the new cameras with the recorded CDs working out for AUC? The teachers can go back to their office, look at the CD and the attendance sheet and verify who did not attend, but their signature mysteriously appears. SMU might have that now, I don't know, they just mentioned new video equipment in the classrooms.

    Cheating! Yes, it is at all medical schools. I was naive when I started medical school. I attended a small university, so I was unaware of rampant cheating. Medical school enlightened me. I wish I had been aware when I started AUC. My future my have taken a different course.

    .....

    Its interesting how the people who complain about the floating exams and questions usually have the most knowledge and information about, and access to these resources.

    Apparently this Rod character, stole the wrong set of questions, and now he's pissed.

    Can you explain your logic here. You mean it is ok to cheat in Anatomy because it is low yield on Step 1, but not ok if you're taking Path or Micro?.......ummmmm, yeah, that makes lots of sense.
