    Dear Dr. Henderson,
    I have noted that there seems to be a growing
    number of graduate students (mostly MS'ers)
    who are being admitted into medical school
    classes. I know that previously (currently?)
    that it was not advantageous to have a
    master's degree. In your opinion, do you think that the trend might be changing?
    Thank you, Trout

    I think as NIH funding becomes tighter, people may be going from graduate to medical school. Education always helps, but I sure don't think it plays as much of a factor as good letters of recommendation, good grades, good MCATs, and a great interview!
    I'll try to find the exact stats/trend!

    I am currently in communication with the AAMC and trying to get some exact statistics about graduate students getting admitted to medical school!

    Do you know what the average score on the
    MCATs was for 1998?

    Please see HG's post from 8-19-99!
    The 1997 averages published at http://www.aamc.org/stuapps/admiss/mcat/tables.htm

    but I'll create a separate post and maybe someone will know!
