    How many times can one repeat the COMLEX before getting dismissed? Are there any schools that doesn't have this limit? Just curious. Thanks.

    OSU-COM will let you take COMLEX 1 3 times, but after you fail 2 times you're held back with the class behind yours. If you fail 3 times you're kicked out. The standard for COMLEX 2 changes with the class of 08 and later: they have to pass both COMLEX 2 exams to be able to graduate.

    Thanks. I know LECOM-PA has the 3 attempts rule as well. Does anyone know what it is at WVSOM?

    You sound worried as though you are planning to fail and want to set yourself up for the school with the most re-take opportunities?
