    OK folks, I've been accepted at MCP and BU and need serious help. Can anyone from either school tell me how well each school prepared them for the boards? Also,does anyone know the average first time pas rate for MCP and BU? In addition, how do these schools compare w/ Tufts and Georgetown (I've just finished interviewing w/ them last week). S.O.S.

    The BUSM USMLE Step 1 pass rate is about 95-98%, depending on the year. We always beat the national average. And BU is much more financially secure than MCP Hahnemann.

    Ummm....OK, I can't let that last comment go untouched. I'm a 3rd-year at MCP, and I can say that we have been financially secure for &gt;3 years. The hospitals have been debt-free and have either broke even or made money every quarter since 1999. Plus Tenet who manages the hopsitals, makes HUGE profits nationally (their stock has jumped from 23 to like 46 over the last year). I guess there is a time-lag of sorts in information out there. Plus we will be merged into Drexel within a few months. I will agree that the Allegheny fiasco was quite similar to Enron, however <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />
