    Is it true that during 1st & 2nd years, classes end at 1 pm EVERYDAY at Hopkins? What is the real deal? If this is true, then why are other schools having so many more classroom hours? :confused:

    I dont know about 2nd year, but it does say on the website that in the first year, classes end at 1 PM "usually"

    So I dont think that means every day, but pretty close I guess. I havent seen the actual course schedule since they havent sent it to us yet.

    I think classes end at 1PM every day, but on at least 2 days of the week you have labs, etc scheduled till about 3:30.

    In the first year, classes are out by 1 PM every day until about March... then they start claiming 1-2 afternoons/week. Bottom line is that first year students have lots and lots of time on their hands.

    Second year is a bit more demanding, with classes 2-3 afternoons/week (Physician & Society, Clinical Skills). Otherwise, you'll be done at 1:00.

    Hope this helps,
