SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hello: I read somewhere I believe for NY school of podiatry that they have two classes, one that starts in september but also there is a january class... I was wondering if this is common for other pod schools to do this? Are there any other schools? And in terms of admissions, does this make it easier to land a spot into podiatry school? I honestly don't know of any MD/DO schools that enter 2 different classes like that...Does anyone know the real reason for having a January entering class - are the admissions standards lower for getting a spot in the january class or something??
