    Hey was wondering if anyone knew if you were applying to a medical school like UTMB or Baylor would the medical school know if you also applied to one of its allied health programs like the PA program? thanks

    Are you sure you want to do that? Contrary to popular belief, there is a huge difference in the work you do as a PA compared to a Physician. If you really want to be a doctor, don't settle for PA. You will regret it. At least try a couple years before applying for PA school. That's my 2 cents.

    They probably won't know, but in the unlikely event that they have people in both programs reviewing applicants, then who knows? Really though... why apply to both? Pick one and go all out for it?
