Wondering when different schools finish year two. I don't finish finals until May 14, so to have six weeks for boards I am looking at mid/late June. Is this the norm?

I finished ~May 20th or so, and third yr started for me right after July 4th. That gave us 7-8 weeks to study, but most only used 4-6 weeks to study and spent the rest of the time on vacation. 6 weeks should be plenty of time. I'd take a few days off before third year starts to decompress too.

Was done with organ modules on Feb. 20. I have PBL till April 30, then a clinical "competency" week. Start Kaplan Intense Prep on May 10 till May 30. Take the USMLE on June 5 and start clinical rotations on June 22. Are we the only school that starts third year so early on?:confused:

We have finals the first week of May, then we do ACLS and a board review course. Boards are on June 8-9, and we start rotations July 1.

I finished first week of May, and started my first rotation June 28ish. This year they are instituting some rediculous intro to clinical clerkship 2-week orientation. That means the future classes will finish the first week of May, then start this thing the Monday before July 1, and only get ONE WEEK off for Christmas (oh, but one of the deans tried to tell me how it was really 11 days with weekends -- I walked away from the computer before I replyied that it showed how little she really understood about medical school). And no spring break. Not as big of deal M4 because it's mostly all electives and we can schedule them as we please (except aways, of course).

Last year we had 3 weeks off to study for the boards at LECOM. We took the COMLEX on June 3-4 (something like that) and started rotations the following Monday (which I think was June 9). So we got almost no time at all off between the COMLEX and rotations +pissed+
