    Hey sar,
    Good to see others from MI.

    Wanted to ask you if you applied to MSU's BS/MD and if you've heard anything yet. Haven't heard anything myself. Keeping my fingers crossed, though....
  • patelaksharpatelakshar Registered User Posts: 73 Junior Member
    SLU's 7-year Pre-medical scholar's program is also excellent.
    Moreover, as long as you get accepted to SLU and have decent ACT/SAT Scores you are pretty much automatically accepted into the medical school.

    Have any other applicants had interview's with UMKC yet?
    If, so please fill out this form: http://www.studentdoctor.net/interview/interview_enter.asp

    Thanks to all and good luck,

    congrats sar05, from a fellow girls stater, texas though :) lots of luck at the interview!
  • sar05sar05 Registered User Posts: 11 New Member
    Hey!! Yeah actually I did apply to the MSU med scholars program, and I haven't heard anything back from them either...but here's to hoping! However, I'm not real worried about that yet since I think they said they wouldn't be making interview decisions till Jan.15. I'm a little worried tho since they are very selective, what is it...like only 10 people? Eh..well Good luck and keep me posted should you receive anything!
  • antiqueantique Registered User Posts: 33 Junior Member
    Yeah, they only accept 10, usu ~8 are from MI. Keep me posted if you receive anything too. GL on your upcoming interview.
  • sar05sar05 Registered User Posts: 11 New Member
    antique- if you were able to get into either of those schools, which one would you choose?
  • antiqueantique Registered User Posts: 33 Junior Member
    I didn't apply to UMKC. My parents won't let me go out of state (or at least are strongly against it). I applied to a couple of non BS/MD univs as well like Ann Arbor so at least I have decent alternatives.

    What other BS/MDs or univs did you apply to?
  • sar05sar05 Registered User Posts: 11 New Member
    NEOUCOM, UMKC and MSU were the only combined programs that I applied to, although I don't think MSU is a combined program, but if I had my choice I'd like to make it into UMKC or the MSU med scholars.

    Hi, I don't want to interupt this thread, but I am getting a little worried about my application for the 6 year med school at UMKC. I am in-state, have been all my life, and still have heard nothing back from them about an interview. They did send back my application payment, claiming it was wrong and that I needed to pay the out of state fee($50). It was reviewed and after talking to them found out it was a mistake, so I sent back in with the same in-state payment.($35) Do you think I should call them?
    My stats are 26 ACT
    3.7-3.8 GPA
    Good EC's
    Coming from a Catholic High school
    Lots of service hours
    What do you guys think about my acceptance? Thanks for the time, Evan
  • patelaksharpatelakshar Registered User Posts: 73 Junior Member
    definitely call them....calling can never hurt....in fact whenever in doubt: call.
