I just have a couple of questins on this subject. First, is it a realistic possibility to apply (and get in) to Med school after finishing your pre req courses, but not yet having a degree?? I have looked at many schools requirements, and it seems that they only need 90 hours or so of undergrad. I have slew of extra curriculars, a pretty good gpa 3.5 (sci=3.8), and I'm looking to get in on some research too. Secondly, if I was to apply and not get in (which would most likely happen) how "bad" is it to apply again after getting a degree??(assuming that not having one was a large determinent of non acceptance) I am considering this because I made the choice to pursue medicine late in my undergrad career(junior), and I would really love to start my family life sooner. If I was to wait until I get a degree, I am looking at at least two more years before I could matriculate. I know this may sound kind of petty, but I am 22 now, and I really would like to settle down before I am well into my 30's. Any thoughts??
