    Hello - Yes, I have found myself in a very similar situation. From what I understand, there are 2 ways that adcoms can view leaving grad school: either they'll frown upon you it(because they'll be concerned that you'll quit med school too) or they won't really care. I contacted the school I am most interested in applying to and asked how they would view leaving grad school, and to my surprise and relief, I was told that it made absolutely no difference to them. I would recommend that you do the same -- talk to and meet with admissions people at prospective schools. Good luck!
