Could be any number of reasons. Poor academics, poor work in clinical, poor work ethic, not what they expected, too difficult either in didactics or clinicals, etc. There was one in my class that got accepted to medical school a couple months after he started the program, and one flunked out after the first year for poor academics despite getting a ton of help both inside and outside class. |
Prospective students need to understand this is graduate school, not college. There are no remedial level courses if you need them. Although you can get help from classmates, there generally aren't tutors available at this level. There are no choices in classes either - your curriculum is done for you. You can't take a "light load" to give yourself an easier semester - It's all or nothing. Going to anesthesia school should be considered your full-time job. Your class load might come out to 21-24 semester hours of credit, but your actual time in classes, labs, and clinical will easily double that, and that doesn't include studying.
