    Is there a spring break in med school? I'm planning on attending LECOM-FL, and the handout of the academic year did not indicate that there was, though I've heard others mention that their school has one.

    TUNCOM has 10 days for Winter Break and a week (I think) for "Spring Break"

    Don't forget, that all changes in 3rd year...

    At PCOM our winter break is 12/17-1/2 and spring break is 3/18-3/26 (1st & 2nd years only)

    They were very kind to 2nd years for this Thanksgiving, we had 9 days off!

    A break at MSUCOM, you'll have to look hard...
    Following summer anatomy (which will be mandatory from now on) my classmates got a day off. For Thanksgiving we all got the standard Thursday and Friday. Winter Break will be from the end of this week to Jan 8, about 2.5-3 wks. Spring Break is a week in early March, and following next semester we'll get a couple days until Summer semester begins, followed by a 3 wk break for Summer. That's it. :eek:
    So two 16 wk semesters, plus a 12 wk Summer semester, 44 wks. Then add a week for Spring and two 3 week breaks, you get 51 wks...about right.
    It's a great school, and getting better, but time isn't something we get a lot of. :scared:
