4. Penn State

    what about RPI/AMC? Is that a very stressful program where I will have to blow my brains out with biomedical engineering stuff?
  • curiositycuriosity Posts: 33Registered User Junior Member
    the rpi program requires you to be a biology major, from those i've talked to, you can do an engineering major if you really want, but that would be hard. and those i've talked to in the program have just done the bio major stuff and they didn't seem to have a problem with it, but of course that's always a a personal thing so who knows... you do biology at rpi where most of the students are not biology majors

    the PLME by far. no MCATs, opportunity to take all undergrad classes Pass/Fail, and no second semester orgo
  • foodisgoodfoodisgood Posts: 874Registered User Member
    umdnj is good, no minimum mcat score and a nice standard 3.5 gpa requirement.
  • sickoffloridasickofflorida Posts: 228Registered User Junior Member
    Of course you would say that, you're planning to go there. I agree with you but I think it depends what undergraduate school you go to...TCNJ seems more rigorous while Rutgers seems more slack. There are several programs that don't require MCAT's and have a 3.4 GPA requirement...which of these seem to be the least stressful where it easy to maintain the minimum GPA requirement? This question is especially directed to those who are ALREADY in the combined degree programs...not those who have yet to see.

    st.bonaventure/ gw med has no MCAT requirement and 3.3 gpa, an asweme deal in my opinion, im goin there next year
  • ivybound1010ivybound1010 Posts: 485Registered User Member
    but for the st bonaventure program u cant get less than a B- in any class

    every program seems to have its positives and negatives, evaluate carefully

    Although NEOUCOM is accelerated, it isn't bad...you need to maintain a 3.2 GPA. The classes aren't super hard (easy schools).

    Does anyone have an opinion of U. Miami 7 years meidcal program? Thanks.
  • eternity1115eternity1115 Posts: 265Registered User Junior Member
    HPME is very relaxed. You have to maintain a 3.2 overall and a 3.0 in your science classes + no MCATs.
  • RisingSeniorRisingSenior Posts: 43Registered User Junior Member
    union/amc is not relaxed. kids drop out like no other.
  • sickoffloridasickofflorida Posts: 228Registered User Junior Member
    you can add rpi/amc to the stressful list...the professors are such **** bags over there.
  • ivybound1010ivybound1010 Posts: 485Registered User Member
