    I've put together a guidebook for MD/PhD applicants based on my experiences and those of others. If I can help anyone get through the process with less pain than I did, I'll be eternally happy. You can find it at the following link:

    <a href="http://itsa.ucsf.edu/~jcholfin/" target="_blank">http://itsa.ucsf.edu/~jcholfin/</a>

    I haven't had time to really spiff up the site yet, but eventually I'll get to it and put it in a more easily read onscreen format. Please let me know if you have any comments or suggestions. Or even some cool stories to contribute... :D

    I've always had this question on my mind. If one were to pursue an MD and PhD independently (not from an MSTP program) does this carry less weight? I've been considering getting a PhD out of Berkeley (it's one of the best schools for Physical Chemistry) and an MD from somewhere else. Then go on to do some MRI stuff with all the quantum that I'll know. I'd be happy in an MSTP program too, so its just something to throw out there.

    Thanks Vader! This is really helpful. A quick question if you have any info: do you know the average age of entering MD/PhD students?

    The problem here, my friend, is that with my statistics I could never get into a CA medical school ;( I just got rejected from the MSP, I feel like crap.
