    Hello everyone:

    I was wondering if anybody knew something about the Barry University 's Master of Science in Biomedical Science in Miami, Florida.

    "The 1-year Accelerated Option is especially helpful for you if you have completed pre-medical preparation as an undergraduate and want to enhance your qualifications at the graduate level prior to attempting full-time medical studies. In this option, you enroll in classes that parallel the first year of medical and dental studies. Over the past 21 years, 77% of the Option I Program graduates have gained admission to allopathic, osteopathic, dental, and podiatric schools"

    What do you guys think about this program????
    Any comments are welcome.

    Thank you.

    I am applying to the Masters of Biomedical Sciences at the University of South Carolina. It seems that this program is geared towards pre-Dental/Med/Vet students that were not able to gain acceptance to there perfered field. I think it is a great stepping stone to gain admittance to a professional program.

    When I looked into the program at Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona the acceptance rate was 100% for dental or medical schools after the second year, and 79% after only completing the first year of their program. Plus they accept the DAT or the MCAT for the entrace exam.

    Well I'm from the area and Barry is not a good university at all. I guess Nova and UF will know that but schools up north wont.
    One thing I do know is that UF adcom likes master programs + thesis

    There are better schools in fl such as UF and UM. If you are looking for a masters in FL I think the one at Nova would be better.

    in FL i recommend the Biomedical Sciences MS from FAU. They offer a non-thesis option...extremely cheap tuition w/ the opportunity for reimbursement + stipend if you become a graduate assistant.

    i don't have any experience with this program, but a friend of mine has nothing but great things to say about it.

    Yeah, if you are wanting to go to UF I know they use nepotism, but it doesn't mean it's the best option :rolleyes:
