    ok, so im curious when is the earliest i would possibly be asked to start school. like many of you, i find myself on many waitlists and have NO CLUE where ill be in a few months. i have already scheduled a trip to europe this summer and im a little concerned b/c i have it running through aug 1st. anyone have dates for schools that start exceptionally early. thanks!!

    March Madness is keeping me sane through this process and i cant wait until Thursday.......GO DEACS!!

    Emory begins on July 21.

    The following link has a list of all med schools and their orientation/class start dates from last year (2003). I'm assuming that most schools will be relatively similar this year, give or take a few days.

    FSU starts early June I believe. I have a theory as to why, but it's beyond the scope of this thread.

    Is it because of the low caliber of students who attend there?

    June and July start dates. YIKES[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    And I am worried about getting moved and settled by orientation on Aug 21st for class start date of Aug 23. I have no reason to complain.

    What if you go to a quarter school that doesn't get out until mid-june? do you just miss your first 2 weeks of med school to finish your u.grad?

    These aren't early compared to the others, but incase you're waiting on them UK and Jefferson both start orientation on Aug. 2 this year. BTW, the start dates were about a week different last yaer, no idea why.

    The calander on their website says Aug. 2. Where did you hear the 5th? Maybe that was last year? Anyways, I haven't gotten any official mailings or anything. Let me know if I'm wrong.

    Yowch, it looks like you're right. I swear a mailing I got a while back said the 5th, but I guess not!
