    Is it just me or does it seem like MSTP isn't that hot this year? I thought I would start a thread and see where SDNers are applying to MSTP.
    I'm applying to:
    NYU
    Columbia
    Mount Sinai
    Harvard
    Einstein
    Yale
    Suny Brooklyn
    Boston U
    Dartmouth
    Emory
    USC
    Stanford
    Pritzker
    Cornell
    Penn
    UC's

    i think most of the MSTP'ers this year just read the forum, soak up the information posted, without contributing anything. :) (i confess to being in this group) :)

    Good. If MD/PhD isn't as hot, that means less competition :)

    Yeah, ok, I'll keep dreaming. In any case, here's my list:
    Baylor
    CWRU
    Duke
    JHU
    Mayo
    NWU
    PSU
    UMD
    UChicago
    UMich
    UPenn
    UPitt
    URochester
    WashU

    Now all I need to do is get out those LORs... Grumbling at last recommender...

    i am applying to most of those places too (plus u.col), but i thought it would be more exciting to wait until the very last day to submit each application. this way i can do all my interviews in the dead of winter and get some good snowboarding in :)

    Well, I guess I should stand up and be counted. I'm applying to these MSTPs this year:

    Stanford
    UCSF
    Yale
    Harvard
    Johns Hopkins
    Washington University in St. Louis
    Columbia
    Cornell
    University of Pennsylvania
    University of Washington
    University of Michigan
    Mt. Sinai
    SUNY Stony Brook
    University of Pittsburgh
    Baylor
    University of Wisconsin
    Thomas Jefferson Medical College
    University of Minnesota

    I am currently filling out the secondaries and getting my transcript certified by the lovely folks at AMCAS.

    To be honest, I knew a lot more people who were doing MD/PhDs last year than this year, but that could just be because that was the year most people in my class applied.

    I can say with absolute, supreme confidence that nothing (save a virus that kills only smart people ages 20-24) will make next year (or this year) an easy one for MSTP admissions.

    Also, just a thought: we should start school and interview date threads. That way we have people to talk to while we mill around in admissions office lobbies before we go into the polygraph rooms.

    yeah mjs, i was hoping to meet some peeps on the interview things - i started an interview invites thread, but it kinda gor hijacked;) -- but you can get it back on track by posting there regarding when and where.

    It's probably gonne be quite awhile for me... I'm still waiting on the green light for my transcript. I'm kinda ticked about that, I thought I had myself on track for some nice early interview times- it's been my goal to get into some program by Jan. 1.

    Meanwhile, these secondaries aren't filling themselves out. Back to work I go.
