    My undergrad had a early acceptance program with RVU, so I imagine this is similar. No MCAT, but you did have to have a B or something in all the prereqs.

    Do you go to Truman?

    What part? It sounds like after two years you apply for the program which guarantees acceptance to their school as long as you meet their requirements. I don't exactly know *why* you'd do that considering if you were a good enough applicant you could just apply normally along with potentially applying to other schools, but I guess not taking the MCAT and the relief of knowing you're going to be accepted is kind of nice too.

    Is that sarcasm? OP not taking the MCAT doesn't mean a thing when it comes to boards. He or she is no better or worse prepared. The MCAT has nothing to do with the boards other than people like to correlate the scores.

    Lots of MD schools have similar programs where you don't take the MCAT.
