before a flame war erupts, i would just like to clarify that in the above line i meant "full ride scholarships to OTHER schools" not "people going to harvard and hopkins and columbia full ride" :-D i don't know anyone going to those places full ride, except maybe for MSTPOriginally posted by No Egrets
but i know MANY who are heading to harvard/hopkins/columbia/other places full ride next year.
If you can get into Harvard UGrad, you can get into med school. All US medical schools are good ones, so Albany is too, but I'm sure you can get into a fabulous school. Don't fear competition. Go to Harvard.Originally posted by alianwaar4
hi guys im in a big dilemma...
i just got into harvard undergrad today Yay! im really happy about that, i had gotten deferred early and then finally accepted
but as i was waiting for harvard, i got accept to union/albany med
and i know for some this may be an easy decision but it really isnt...on one side is a guarantee to becoming a doctor without the premed pressures and tension of burning out and on the other side is all the prestige and everything that goes with harvard...i dont know how hard i would want to work AGAIN to get into med school especially after having this chance at going to union/albany and hopefully getting a rads residency
i dreamt of becoming a doctor before i dreamt of going to harvard...now that i got into harvard everyone and their brother says to go there...but what they dont realize is all the stress and tension and tests of my passion of medicine it will bring with it with MCATS, gpa and superficial premed resume building...while union albany would be much more laid back and would let me just become what i want- a doctor please guys i need every bit of advice i can possibly get
