    To all those who are currently in pod school can you please give me an idea what your average week is like? (class schedule?) How much do you study per day? How often do you have exams?

    Thanks!

    Not there yet, but if you go to Scholl's website, there are links to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd year schedules. The people there that gave the student tours said that mon thru fri they study about 6 to 7 hours on avg and then half the day on saturday. Tests at Scholl are staggered. I have no idea about the other schools, but hope that helps a little! Oh, and from what I gathered from the schedule, class and lab take up about 25-30 hours per week.

    Is that 6-7 hours a day? I am guessing that is not a week, cause I study more than that now :laugh:

    Right. 6-7 on each week day and then another 4 or 5 on Saturday. So, about 35-40 hours per week on top of time spent in lab or lecture...or clinic. I'm sure there are people who study more and people who study less. This is just the amount of time that I was told by two specific students.:D

    Seriously! My 3rd grader put in 3 hours of study last week for a geology test! Nevermind the fact that she is totally type A. If she misses a single question, she acts like it is the end of mankind.
