    1.) This combination is extremely expensive and takes a long time, and while sufficient reasons for something like this exist, they're extremely rare. Be sure you know why you're getting into such a weird combination.

    2.) Basically, you're going to want to pursue each admission separately. You can eventually do the actual education jointly, but your mindset at this point should be to push to be a pre-law and a pre-med student separately rather than joined together. So that means all the required courses and extracurriculars for standard premed students and taking the MCAT, along with the usual pre-law emphasis on GPA and LSAT.
