Help! I'm kicked out of med school!
« on: March 02, 2006, 07:11:09 AM »

I'm repeating my first year of medical school in the US. Last year I had numerous personal difficulties so they let me repeat it. However I got a couple Ds on my midterms this year so they kicked me out but I appealed and took my next set of midterms, which I aced. The decision from the SEPAC committee came back and they still expelled me out despite my good grades. I got dismissed the day before my final exams so I went to the dean and begged him to let me take my finals. He said he would give me another chance and delay the expulsion until he saw my grades. I have taken all my finals, some have gone well and others aren't. I have to meet with the dean after spring break next week to see if I passed or am kicked out or not. I really want to be a doctor, I just have had difficulties. What do you guys think I should do? See a psychiatrist? Get a lawyer? I'll go to the Caribbean if I have to, nothing's going to stop me. Thanks.

Well, I don't understand why you'd be kicked out if you did that well on your second set of midterms.  Is there anything you aren't telling us?  Were there any professional issues?

Considering you've got some med school time in, you may be able to transfer to a "lesser" ranked school in the US.  If you are already at a "lesser" ranked school, then I'd consider either a DO school or Carribean.  Between those two, I'd probably take DO in the U.S. if possible.  Carribean schools don't have very good reputations among the programs I've been at.

Good luck.
