    Being in combined program gives great sense of security. In regard to MCAT, EC's and so forth, pre-meds are all involved anyway, in program or otherwise. D. is in program that allows to apply out and retain your spot in a program. Her program also reguires certain minimum MCAT and not accelerated. She was accepted to 3 combined programs with various reguirements, 2 of which were accelerated. Her decision to apply out will be based on her MCAT score. She is junior and very happy to be in a program. We hope that she will continue having scholarships in Medical school, but again it will depend on her MCAT score and school that she will end up going. The reason that she want to apply out is she does not like urban setting of Medical school in her combined program. Her UG school has very pretty campus in a middle of nowhere, which is D's preference.
