    What is the class schedules like?

    Advertisements



    I recently got accepted into UNIBE and I'm going to get over there Wednesday. I'm basically all ready to go but I cant help but wonder how the Pre-Med class schedules are like and how the days are while your in class. I want to know what I'm going to be looking at. In terms of class times and workload since I plan on studying for the STEP on my own time as well, I would like to have some sort of balance. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Pre-med is quite the light load. especially if you're coming next week you'll have pretty much 3 weeks free time. A lot of students (and some teachers) don't come until the second week of classes because nothing really happens that first week of class.
    And you'll see once the semester gets started even at its busiest if you have the proper study skills you'll still have plenty of free time to pursue whatever interests you.

    Good luck!

    Med 5 is a lot more demanding than the pre-med semesters. the days are a lot longer and professors are less likely to be absent throughout the semester. that said there is still a lot of free time, and labs also don't start until the second week, so those who wish can skip the entire first week with little consequence. that said, i personally find it better to come the first week to get a sense of who the professor is, what they expect and what will be covered throughout the semmester (ie orienting myself not to mention making a good first impression).
    also there is plenty of time to study usmle material, studying for the step will reinforce what you are learning in classes and vice versa.

    good luck.
