No Experience Necessary
Question by Adam H: Can med school students transfer between schools during their first two years?
My fiancee has an interview with the University of Texas medical school in Galveston, and I was just offered a job in Houston. There is another University of Texas med school in Houston, but it’s unlikely that she’ll get in as an out-of-state applicant (otherwise she has more than all the requirements). Could she go to Galveston for the first year and then transfer to Houston?

It doesn’t work that way…the reason it is competitive to get into medical school is that the school knows that attrition rates are low. In over 20 years, I have yet to hear of someone doing what you suggest.
In other words, NO!
