I am apllying in grad school now and then will apply into med school. I found out that most of the grad schools accept people into PhD programs in the area where I am interested (Bio sciences). I just want to get an MS. Erolling into a PhD program and than "changing" my mind does not seem honest. I was just wondering if I can contact PIs in the department and see if they are interested to get an MS student. What would be the best way to ask about it? even though the school does not officially enrol student for MS as terminal degree? I know that PhD students can drop out with just an MS.
