I am looking for a premed 4 year program that gets you automatic eligibility into medical school if you pass all 4 years of college and you don't have to take the 5hr test
is there any Texas colleges that offer this??

    Well, there's Rice/Baylor, which gives you automatic admission into Baylor College of Medicine, but it's extremely competitive (I think they admit about 14 people a year). I think if you really want to go to med school you're probably going to have to take the MCAT, and if that's too high of a barrier for you, you might want to consider a different field.

    Texas Tech also has a program just like that, and I believe UTSA Health Science Center has one also. It's called like FASTS program or something like that.

    Texas Tech program allows you to apply after you get there after one year or something like that. If you get selected but take the MCAT, they drop you from the program and ask you to compete with the regular pool.

    JAMP Frequently Asked Questions

    JAMP is for low income families. There is another program that is for rural families and you qualify based on where you live. I know someone at A&M that got qualified this way without the income limitation.

    There are also 4 or 5 seats for Baylor/Baylor program.
