    Stony Brook Formal Post Bacc Pre-Health Program

    Anyone currently enrolled or completed this program? I've been accepted to this program, Columbia's postbacc premed program and Harvard extension premedical program. Columbia's program seems outrageously expensive, and Harvard extension seems a bit too informal? So I think Stony Brook may be...
