Hey wasup, I'm an above average student with around a 3.75 GPA, and I'm looking for a school with a great pre-med program. But here's the catch, I don't want a too competitive school. I'm looking for a school with "at least" a "50% acceptance rate" for its pre-med program. I'm also looking for a school that "guarantees" admission to it's "medical school" if you graduate from it's pre-med program. For this reason, I don't want to have the pressures of finding a medical school after pre-med, because it's SO MUCH HARDER TO GET INTO! So can anyone list schools that meet my requirements? Appreciate it...

    Northwestern. (they have a 7 year program, I believe?)
    Texas A&M. (they told me they have guaranteed placement unless you're really stupid or something)

    Few if any places have guaranteed admissions simply for graduating. There are number of very competitive programs that do guarantee admissions, but again they are extremely competitive. Probably harder to get into than actual medical school.

    Undergraduate school doesn't matter, go where you find the best fit for you.

    Also, the med school placement rate is not a very good stat to go by. There are plenty of other thread where I've covered this but just know that it is an easily manipulated and "punishes" schools that don't pre-screen their juniors/seniors before they apply to medical school.

    On a more critical note, you seem like the type of person who is looking for an easy way to be a doctor. No such path exists. Even if you find a program that will accept you out of HS know that medical school is not any sort of picnic. If you really want to be a doctor than you should understand why it's so difficult and that overcoming that difficulty just is inherently part of the process. Looking for backdoors now is not a particularly beneficial attitude to have.

    I believe Brown has a BA/MD (perhaps it's BS/MD) program as well.

    Look at Muhlenberg College in PA. Small school, not that hard to get into, great pre-med program with about 90% acceptance rate if u survive.

    If I read you correctly, you want a BS/MD program that admits more than half its applicants.

    No such program exists. In fact, nothing close to it exists.

    Georgetown has a program that can give early admittance to some students once they finish the requirements.
