usc pre-med, medical school

<p>I'm a junior in high school and im thinking of going to college at USC or UCLA. i know that both have really good medical programs but i also heard that USC has a program that guarantees automatic acceptance to their medical school? is that true? i wasnt sure if that was true so i'm asking you guys. also, which school would you recommend? please! thanks a lot!</p>

<p>Hello aspired! The link above should answer your questions about the usc bac/md program. Basically, you would apply as a high school senior and if accepted need a 3.0 science gpa and 27 MCAT minimum to be accepted into Keck upon graduating college. </p>

<p>If you get into the program at usc and can afford it, I would definitely recommend that you consider it over all other options.</p>

<p>'SC’s program is extremely competitive, however, so unless you have a 3.9/2250+, and a long list of appropriate EC’s…</p>

<p>@bluebayou: My SAT was a 2000, and I definitely don’t have many EC’s, and was invited to interview today. Only 100 out of the thousands that apply get an interview, and I was chosen despite my lack of EC’s and low SAT score, so…</p>


<p>Are you a URM?</p>

<p>congrats dork, I hope you get it. </p>

<p>But you should note that the mean numbers of those accepted into the program in 2008 were a ~4.4 gpa (w), and a 2190 SAT.</p>

<p>dorktastic has a interesting story to tell (I peeked). She also has a unique ethnicity that will be considered “URM”.</p>

I guess you peek this post:</p>

<p>I guess the ethnicity what is qualified for URM is the former ethnic group, not the latter one. Am I correct? However, I heard that if a student is from Iraq, he/she could have some boost as well.</p>

<p>When there are only 12 posts, it is relatively easy to “peek” :)</p>
