SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I am trying to decide between two programs to fill my gap year and I need advice as to which one would be looked upon more favorably by a med school admissions committee. The first is Drexel's Interdepartmental Medical Science Program where I'd be taking a year of med school classes. The second is Columbia University's Master of Science in Nutrition, which requires a thesis. I am leaning towards Columbia because it combines my undergraduate psychology research with a medically related field. Does anyone know anything about either of these programs or have advice as to which you think would be more impressive to a med school? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
