I was just wondering if anyone has looked at beginning and end dates for schools. I have recently. I know some schools start as early as July and some as late as September. I've started to look a lot more into graduation dates as well. Most residencies start around July 1st, but graduation dates can vary too.

I have used this as a factor in my consideration, but it is a very,very minor one. Has anyone else thought of this.

I have thought about this, but more in regards to the MS-2 academic calendar. I know that some schools end really early to give you 10-12 to study for the boards, take them, and then get a little break, while others only give you a month or so. That is a huge factor for me...
