    What AP stands for? Is this program for student who completed college and want to go to med school so they take these courses and then apply to med school? Is AP competetive?

    So does completion of this AP course give you better chances to get accepted into med school. Do they have like a certain GPA/MCAT score that you get and you are gauranteed to be accepted into med school? Say if you get into med scholl there after this program, you would have to stay in med school elss time, right? So you will have only 3 more years for med school?

    Thank you.

    There are like 2 recent threads about this same topic so just look for it. :)

    So you have to get only a 2.96 to get into med school after this program?&gt; What MCAT score?

    the ancillary prg's at Finch/CMS (AP, MIS medical imagin sciences, and the CHAMPS, inner-city kids) all help to give people a second chance at med school, and really increases the diveristy of the student body. i think it's great.

    the people in my class were really cool, and from a broad range of backgrounds...in age, ethnicity, and expr's. it was really cool to see that most of them would be able to finally get into med school, b/c i have the full confidence that they will be fine phsyicians.

    the other adv for the school being that they rake in $34K tuition for each student. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> how you like dem apples?

    no.

    if yes, only marginally in that you will have more stuff to talk/write about in apps, and you will have "real" med school expr's in your classes.
