    general question to all that applied
    How many pages (like sheets of paper) was your entire application to MedStart?
    Like a number. (e.g. 10 pages)

    in these programs, do they look very closely at the high school schedule difficulties? In other words, i am taking 2 Aps my junior year ( chem and gov).........is that sufficient?

    just wondering how many of you took AP eng lang.? Does that class help with college admission essays?

    sorry to change the topic but i am interested in this medstart program so i will like some advice.

    I hate MedStart lol, not really, but it makes me mad since I felt I was really qualified with my stats since their minimums are way too easy with ACT 25 and GPA of 3.5, but WAY TOO MANY PEOPLE APPLIED THIS YEAR WITH ABOUT 200 I THINK SHE TOLD ME, anyways I didn't get the phone interview for MedStart, but they are giving me a BIG SCHOLARSHIP, whatever, that's life, still I think they should raise the requirements,

    what were the stats of people that got accepted to MedStart, the lucky 10 or 15?

    I think BS/MD programs MUST OR SHOULD HAVE ATLEAST 40-50 SEATS RESERVED FOR THEIR SO CALLED DIRECT PROGRAM BECAUSE THEN IT'S ACTUALLY WORTH IT TO APPLY AND PUT WORK IN IT....

    Since it's stupid and pointless when 200 ppl apply to a program that accepts like 5-10 seats, I think a lot are selective, but then they shouldn't advertise their program so much and get people anxious lol

    I sound bitter lol but thats because it snowed on the first day of spring break, but I did get accepted to a BS/DO PROGRAM- WAY EASIER-ASK ME IF YOU WANT TO LEARN ABOUT THEM, ITS EASIER/LESS COMPETITIVE/BETTER COLLEGES/LOCATIONS (Yes, I'm biased now haha)
  • google223google223 Registered User Posts: 47 Junior Member
    haha, ok then
  • blackpen2008blackpen2008 Registered User Posts: 1,362 Senior Member

  • google223google223 Registered User Posts: 47 Junior Member
    anyone get in yet????????
  • college120college120 Registered User Posts: 1 New Member
    well, i'm on the waiting list...iono what that means at all..

    and I'm not sure if i want to go for Wayne medstart since u still need a high MCAT score..(the senior medstart students told me they had to work just as hard as any undergrad applying to medical school)...

    I just want to mention that it is quite a competitive program to get into in the 1st place...all the interviews can be quite nerve wrecking...
