As a humanities major with a few significant public health related activities, would my chances be better at an MPH/MD program than at just an MD program?

In general, how do the chances differ between these two programs?

Of course, this question only applies to MD/MPH programs you actually apply seems you can only get into many of them once you are accepted into the MD program. Do you know of any programs that you apply in an MD/MPH program?

no, your chances wouldn't be better. You are assessed for each degree separately and if you get into the med school they will most likely not deny you for the MPH.
