I mean, I know one can enter medical school with advanced standing (this will NOT me by the way) but can someone be advanced because they are doing really well, or they've taken comparable classes in college/grad school (i.e. histology, pharmacology, patho, etc)? I know the whole shebang (med school, internship, residency, fellowship) is such a long process, that I'm wondering if there are any shortcuts. . .
