According to them the cases of 6 or more years are students who don't pass the steps, but in my opinion I think now passing the steps on time is somewhat more controlled by the new rules that you must pass at least the first one to pass to 3rd year. Well that's my opinion and what they have told me...
    Hey T21DRMD! I will be joining you at school for Jan 2011 class! Glad to meet another fellow student. I'm pretty excited. Was just accepted a couple of weeks ago through San Antonio, TX office. I actually live up in the Northwest US but that was the closest office to go through. Anyways can't wait to start. Have you found a place yet to stay?

    What is the average class size anyways?

    Hi! nice to meet you and congrats!!!! I'm from P.R. and I'm also very excited since I've been waiting some time now to finally start med school... About the place to stay I'll be living with my cousin for a while, he's in 2nd year now, and maybe I move out later... But don't worry much since I've just talk to my cousin about the apartments because a friend of mine is looking for a place too and he told me to tell him not to worry because there are always apartments available...

    I think the average class size is normally about 75 students... compare to the class size for the students beginning in August that I think is above 100 students, so I imagine this year it would be about the size of the class that begins in August... Well, nice to meet you again and do not hesitate to contact me about anything you need and that I can help you with.

    So does that mean you're still going through the application process, or have you already been accepted?

    Hope to join you guys

    I have a friend who is a UAG grad and he really enjoyed it there.
    We lost contact for a few years but I recently found him on FB and now I am excited about UAG.
    I sent my application out recently(no fee if you hurry and apply before october) and hope that I can join you guys.
    If not, then maybe in the fall.

    I will keep an eye on this post, because UAG is definitely on my mind and I would go in a heartbeat if I get the word.

    Good luck to all of you already accepted.

    Took me about two weeks to receive an interview invite, then interviewed two weeks later and got the acceptance call a week after my interview. Good Luck!!
