why is it so awesome?

<p>i know absolutely nothing about excellerated medical programs. are they just cramming everything into 6 years? how long are they cramming into these 6 years of school? 8, 9? im sorry for my ignorance, but if one were to not go through an excellerated program, how much longer would it take them to be able to begin practicing medicine and working for themself?</p>

<p>programs vary in length from 6 years which would be 2 years of college and the tradiitonal 4 years of Med School, 7 years which would be 3 years of college and 4 years of Med School, 8 years which would be the normal routine of 4 years of college and 4 years of med school. The main advantage is from high school you can be garunteed a spot in medical school provided you meet a few standards in college. Some programs even let you opt out of the MCAT!</p>

<p>haha--in the interview, ur definately going to be asked "why do you want in at a ba/md program?" r u going to say, "well i want to be guaranteed a spot in med school....that way i can fool around in college..." u know wat i'm saying? i mean basically, we all don't want the stress....but how to word it in a good way?</p>

<p>I think I can speak for most of us when I say the reason is the stress. When asked that question I could say something like I know I want medicine but I also want to have time to play tennis and try out some passions. But, I should probably think of something better.</p>

<p>hahaha.....i guess we just play it straight from the heart....?</p>

<p>lol saying "so i can fool around," might be a bit harsh. But i think that alot of the programs are intended so that kids like us get out of the stress that people usually go through as pre-med. Many actually say this in their mission statement. </p>

<p>Just talk about how you'll have time to do other things, sports, activities, things you think you might miss out on if you were a stressed out pre-med.</p>
