    @misophoniax hey can you share your ACT/SAT score and other stats that got you into the Siena/AMC program? I really want to get in next year and I'm trying to do everything I can to make myself a good candidate!

    Look at the 'results thread' for different years to see the profiles. This person also posted in 2017 cycle.

    is it necessary to apply to both feeder schools or can you apply to only 1? Unioon / AMC or RPI/AMC
  • GoldenRockGoldenRock Registered User Posts: 915 Member
    @njdesimom You need to apply to each feeder school (RPI, Union, Sienna). Later if the app is forwarded and AMC decides, will get notification to apply for the AMC (separate app with $100+ fees for each time).

    thank you, I guess we won't be able to apply. we only meet the requirements for 1 of the feeder schools in terms of GPA (missed it by a fraction).

    @njdesimom, As far as I understand, you can apply to one, some or all the feeder schools and depending on whether or not you get the interview calls, if any, and if selected, the applicant can opt which feeder school to attend. The feeder schools have their own policies of who to forward for the medical school consideration. Example that may be particularly relevant in your case, NJMS --> feeder schools: NJIT, Rutgers, TCNJ, Stevens, ..... Generally people apply to couple of feeder schools where they think they have best shot at getting forwarded for the medical school consideration. Also, if selected, it may make a lot of sense to consider which of the feeder schools are relatively relaxed and which are stringent as far as medical school matriculation is concerned (primarily, GPA, MCAT score, grade deflation at the particular school etc)

    I want to apply for Brown PLME, and I don't see any PLME-specific questions on the Common Application. Where should I find them?

    I read the PLME program information page on the Brown website and it doesn't tell me how I will inform Brown that I'm applying for their program in addition to the college. All I see is "There is only ONE application to Brown and the PLME program." Does this mean that I don't have to do anything extra for the program? If that isn't the case, then how would I let Brown know?
  • rk2017rk2017 Registered User Posts: 36 Junior Member
    Have you gone through the Brown specific common app? I am sure they prompt you somewhere whether you would be interested in that program and if you answer yes, there will be a supplemental questionnaire and/or essays section that gets enabled that you need to fill up also.

    Have any of you guys ever used advisor programs to help you apply to BS/MD programs? I have no idea if "Advisor Prep Education" is legit, but they claim that 25% of all successful applicants to Northwestern’s HPME program received admissions prep from them. Not sure if I should take this with a grain of salt. Is it a scam?

    Anyone have any experience with this company, and those who were successful, did you rely on any counselling, or did you just rely on yourself and your passion?

    @impressivemediocrity My DS is going through the BS/MD process right now. We applied for the APE Director program but he was rejected, so I don't think it's a scam since they didn't take our money!!

    We haven't decided if we are going to use them should he gets interviews. He has received invitation to baylor 2's Nov 3 medical track event and right now we're trying to find out if there is a required interview at this event?

    Any applicants from last year want to share their experience of the baylor 2 medical track event?

    @Rainiertx For the Baylor 2 Med last year the parents and the students each had their own agendas for the day. For the students they did not have individual interviews but more like group and small group activities and information sessions. They were presented with a current health care issue and if I am remembering correcting they had to follow up with an essay submission. From the group that receives the invitation to attend the Baylor2Med event a very small number is then selected to continue in the process and I think the individual interview starts at that point. Hope this helps!
