    Is it possible to apply for only a PhD at a school in which you are applying MD/PhD? Temporally speaking, it seems like its doable; the grad school applications for the schools I'm looking into are due in December. But does it cause a conflict of interest or anything like that?

    I would say it's possible... Did you take the MCAT and the GRE?!

    I'm sure it's possible, but I'd never do it...the MD leaves MANY more doors open...

    I considered doing this. I don't think there would be any problem, but make sure you don't forget any requirements. Most graduate programs will require the general GRE and a subject test. I'm not sure how it is now, but when I took it the subject tests were only offered a couple times a year.
