Hi there. I have a friend who is now a second year working on getting transferred to where his fiancee will be having a complicated surgery that would hinder her ability to move around freely. He would like to know, and I would really appreciate it if anyone on this discussion board can tell me whether fiancee counts as "family" to med schools which specifically stipulate that compelling reasons must be part of the requirements for initiating a transfer application. My guess is that it counts but... Thanks a bunch guys.
