Question for NYCOM students/alumni: Why is there such a large disparity between the first-year class and the graduating class? When I interviewed, someone asked about the class size and the student tour guide said something like "The entering class is 250 and the graduating class is 170." I'm just throwing those numbers out there, but I remember it was about an 80-person difference. When I asked why she told me that people move on to other things, but at 60K+ a year that sounds like an incomplete answer, especially considering that allopathic schools don't take osteopathic transfers (and, since NYCOM is so prestigious, I doubt many people are transferring to other D.O. schools). I've never heard of so many medical students mysteriously disappearing from a class, except at the Carribean schools. So... Can anyone shed light on this?
