Hey everyone, just wondering if anyone here participated in the MMEP 6 week program and where. I am thinking of applying but was wondering about the admission criteria (GPAs accepted) and the overall effectiveness. Thanks!
I'm sure you have better odds if you're URM, but it isn't a requirement. One of my best friends in the program was Chinese. And I specifically remeber a couple caucasian girls at my program (University of Washington).Originally posted by pbehzad
do you have to be a minority to participate, or is it just for minorities? it seems like a good experience, and id like to do it. would persians be considered a minority by any chance?
Hey,famousdoc2b said:I participated in the MMEP at the University of Alabama summer 2000. It was a terrific experience. I worked on a cadaver for six weeks, took actual gross anatomy courses, and prepared for the MCAT. I also had the opportunity to meet the admissions committee and shadow several physicians. The money was nice also
I am not puerto rican, mexican, african-american, or native american, but I was still accepted. On my program, there were white, asian, caribbean, middle-eastern and other latinos. Although it was definitely geared towards minority recruitment, not everyone counted as a minority according to AAMC.spongiebob said:do you have to be either puerto rican or mexican american to apply, or of any hispanic background?
