Clinicals during Fresh year or Junior year? What's better?

  1. I'm trying to decide between two colleges: college A has freshman students do clinicals right away in their 1st year, while college B has its freshman students do pre-req work and other studies during the first two years to prepare them for clinicals which start junior year.

    What's better? Is it better to start clinicals right away to get the expierience or should you be prepared before jumping in?

    How many clinical hours are in each program? When you start isn't as important as how many you get to do.

    So, if the one that starts two years earlier, gives you more total hours.....I'd take that one.
