Well, not exactly. But I'm confused. I read this on Georgetown's website: Since I'm thick-headed, could someone please explain what the 'entering year 2002' stipulation is about ?? (It's the first sentence in the quoted text below.) 1) Does the stipulation mean that if a student doesn't get in *this year* (2002), then they don't have a shot at being transferred into Georgetown next year or the year after (2003 & 2004)?? ..or.. 2) Does it mean that a second-year student or a third-year student who is trying to transfer in *this year* (2002) doesn't have a shot of doing so?? I'm guessing that option #2 is correct? But I'm not sure. Thanks! "Application for Admission with Advanced Standing: Applications for Advanced Standing (Transfer) will not be accepted for either second or third year by the School of Medicine for the entering year 2002. For those years when the School of Medicine does announce it will consider applications for Advanced Standing, the following information applies. The School of Medicine may consider applications for admission with advanced standing to its second- and third-year classes to fill places that may have become available through attrition. Each year, prior to January 1st, a decision will be made regarding possible available places and the initiation of the application process. If places are available, the application season runs January 1 through May 15. Applications may be requested from the first week in January, until the last Friday in April. Candidates applying for third year consideration must be attending a medical school that is accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME). Applicants to the second year must be attending a medical school that is accredited by the LCME, or attending a school of osteopathic medicine. The LCME only accredits schools that are established in the United States and Canada."
