    University of Cincinnati SMP 2023–24

    Hey! I am a current UC first year medical student and alumni of the Cincinnati SMP. I didn't see a thread started for the next cycle so I thought I'd start one. Let us know if you have any questions about the program!

    Need help with SMP decision making - 4 days to decide!

    Hi Everyone, I'm new to this and I know this question has been asked before but it seems like people sometimes give good advice or have points I myself would have never thought of so I thought it wouldn't be a bad idea to see what you all think. TLDR at the bottom. My Background: I graduated...

    UCSF & CNU vs. MCW & MCW: What Should My SO do?

    Super confusing title I know lol. I've been WL at UCSF (dream school) and WL at MCW. My SO was accepted to CNU & MCW. S/he is trying to figure out where to commit. We want to be with/near each other and are both from CA. Is it inappropriate for me to contact my WL schools to see what my...

    Cincinnati vs. Colorado vs. MCW

    Cincinnati Pros: $: that sweet IS tuition after 1st year (or immediately if you choose to live in Northern KY) Extended family (born and raised in CA) Loved the faculty Super high STEP scores (avg 241 last class for STEP 1) Cons: Not much to do in Cincy imo not a whole lot of CA matching...

    Current Cincinnati med students: what do you love about the school?

    I was recently accepted to UC COM (YAY!!!!). I am curious to hear from current students about their experiences with the school. I absolutely loved the school at my interview, but I would like to hear from people who are currently in school there!

    SMP U Cincinnati vs CWRU

    I've been accepted to both. Just looking to see if anyone has any insight on which is better. Cincinnati has much smaller classes (32 vs 150), higher acceptance rate (82% as of 2016 vs 66% as of 2013). Cincinnati takes and scores classes alongside med students. Has no linkage but provisional...

    To SMP or not to SMP? Which is the riskier path?

    I'm a non-Canadian international student looking to strengthen my science GPA before applying to US med schools. I plan to apply after completing a Master's program. I have 3.51 uGPA, 3.46 sGPA from a top ten university in the US (notorious for grade deflation), and 501 MCAT (retaking). I felt...

    Which medical school should I choose?

    I have recently been accepted to two medical programs: Ohio University's DO program, and the University of Cincinnati's MD program. Both of these schools seem promising and I have heard positive aspects from several doctors about both of them, so making this decision is difficult for me...

    Cincinnati vs. Jefferson

    I've been accepted to the University of Cincinnati and waitlisted at TJU. I really liked the vibe of TJ on interview day and fell in love with Philly! Cincinnati also seems to be a great school, but I just didn't get a great vibe from it from interview day. Cincy is also ranked P/F, which isn't...

    Cincinnati vs MCW

    Hey guys! I'm gonna preface this by saying that I'm not in love with any particular specialty, but may have a slight preference towards Radiology. Also, I ultimately would like to match outside of the Midwest (east/west coasts + Chicago) so that may factor in as well. Any help/feedback is...
