    I got my acceptance via email on Monday and am pretty excited. I thought this would be the program I would have the least chance of getting into, so it was surprising to get a response so early. Did anyone else get their acceptance letter and are any of you waiting to hear back from other places before making a decision? Also, if anyone has already gone through the program what did you think of it? See some of you this summer.

    It's just the summer research program, so I don't think they interviewed anyone... but I could be wrong.

    Hey andrey1225 do you think you can give me the site for the summer research program you applied to? I think I might want to apply next year, cause I need a lot of research experirnce with all the competitive med school i will be applying to.

    There's the link to a lot of summer programs (there are other links circulating all over the web -- just do a google search of "SURP" and you'll get 100s). Here's the link to Albert Einstein's program:

    I'm not sure how competitive it is in relation to the others. My GPA isn't great but I've done a lot of research and had good letters of rec. So, they may emphasize different parts of the application or they're just not that selective in general. Hope that helps.
