I saw your other post about the school being closed on Fri... it's a Jewish school so they have off on A LOT of Jewish holidays. Also the FAQ section stated that classes run Mon-Thurs with a possible Sunday class for a semester or two.
Something I did learn as far as tuition stuff goes... when we do our full-time clinical affiliations, they technically count as part time classes since we get credits for them, but we don't actually have to pay the part time tuition for them. It's included in the full time tuition for the previous semester. IE: a summer clinical affil is paid for in the previous spring tuition.
Hope this helps.
I knew the school was Jewish, but I didn't realize that they only have classes Mon-Thurs. That's great! I was assuming classes ran from Sunday-Thursday. About the housing, I'm gonna give them a call next week and ask for ANY bit of advice they can spare. I have a feeling that I'm gonna end up commuting from home (which is going to be a huge pain in the ***) though since I know it's gonna be a headache trying to find a decent place to live in the city.
The tuition bit sounds good. School's gonna be even cheaper than I thought. Thanks for the heads up!!!
