There was 30 of us the first day. Half couldnt pass the initial test they gave us. We had the last class last week and only 9 of us passed.
Sounds like a really great program....or a very marginal program with remarkably poor admissions standards.
is the classes really hard? I'm only 17 and still is going to be in HS when the classes start (June 14). It's the usaual 120 Hrs i think.
Actually I wouldn't go so far as to say it's that easy. Not hard by any stretch of the mind, but you have to remember that most people are coming in with no medical background and expected learn the basics of medicine pretty quickly.
Sure, not in any real depth, and it depends on your program, but it's still basic medicine nonetheless. I mean, I hardly studied and still got 2nd in my class... but I did the same thing in medic school--- hardly studied and still got solutatorian.
There IS a reason why there is typically a pretty decent fail rate--- and it's not because it's easier than finger painting.
