    Students transferring out

    Advertisements



    I just heard today that around 30-40 4th semester students are planning to transfer out. Can anyone confirm the validity of this.

    Personally it'll be good for the students that stay behind, More clinical spots for all

    If 30-40 students are out.. the revenue comes down.. and clinical spots will automatically decrease as well. Perhaps it's a simple rule of demand and supply.

    I don't think so because we have an increase in the students and the clinical spots don't increase.

    I honestly beg to differ.. if you look at the most recent clinical sites, you would see Denver, Worcester, Pontiac, Ealing in U.K., St-Louis ..as expamples for new "Pilot" sites. Please keep in mind that we pay 9500$/semester compared to 19500$/semester at SGU. We have the right to demand quality, but we also have to understand ACGME sites are LUXURY in the U.S. There are still things to improve.. such as Cali, and stafford loans. However, I do believe that they are trying to work on these issues as speaking.

    just my 2 cents... (not meant to trigger another debate )

    umm so you call 2-6 spots in these "pilot" sites a huge increase? Compared to the 250 or so incoming students in the fall, 150 in the winter, and another 120 in the summer ?


    St matthews has enough money to spend. I guess they are looking for the right situation. But should students have to wait months b/c SMU cant find the best deal?

    Please dont misunderstand... SMU is doing something .. but it's not enough.. However, they are doing something about it... 260 got in.. by the time they get to clinical.. we're talking about 160-180 that will make it.

    I'm not a SMU enthousiast.. but definitely not a basher. There are tremendous things to improve for the next future.

    I would go out and say around 50 will not be back from all of this.

    THEN.. add that the incoming class will be VERY small. Florida says around 60.. but I heard that in all reality it will probably be around 30.. yes.. 30.. this comes from inside the school.

    This will put a financial crunch on the school.. I hope the admin sees this and takes positive action to improve things. They will continue to see a lot of students leaving in the fall too. I know of a lot in my class alone that are getting out either for 5th semester or after 5th.

    As far as clinicals... we can lose many students.. but as long as we keep taking 5th semester transfers from Ross and other schools.. the clinicals will stay full. That is how the school will continue to make profits.. on transfers that don't cost them anything to have in our program..100% profit off of them.

    No matter how many students transfer out and how small the summer class would be, there would be always a huge supply of medical students. After Ross, SGU, and AUC and perhaps SABA we are the next best choice.

    Anyways I highly believe SMU would become more attractive over the summer ensuring another fall class of 280 students.

    I aint a SMU basher but I'm tired of SMU not doing enough. Story of their establishment.
