    I mean are any of you accepted MD-only for class of 2010 but already plan on applying to your school's combined program when you matriculate this fall?

    not accepted yet, but I am definitely planning on doing so if accepted MD-only at certain places AND don't get accepted MSTP anywhere at all (entirely possible, I STILL don't have any MSTP interviews. *sigh*)

    Good luck. I know that it's a viable option to apply during first year but was wondering if more than a handful of people actually do it.

    Hey Stherling - I met an MSTP at Northwestern who did that, she was in the med school and entered the MSTP later; she's doing work in cog. neuro and seemed pretty happy.
    So I think that's a good plan for what it's worth.

    wertt: thanks! unfortunately as per the other thread on this topic, it seems I may have blown my MD-only chances by applying MSTP. Here's hoping wash U really liked me! Otherwise, 06-07 application cycle, here I come....
