I am considering going MD/PhD and I had a few questions I hope you all can answer: 1) How do adcoms view MD/PhD candidates as compared to MD candidates? I know that the interview process is much more difficult, but I've heard conflicting things about whether a higher or lower GPA/MCAT is needed to get in (disregarding research - I know that is necessary). 2) When you're sending in your letters of recommendation should they be solely for medical school or should they be addressed to MD/PhD programs? How should I ask my letter writers to address them? I am very confused about this and my medical advisor was unable to answer it! 3) Also, if there are others reading this post considering MD/PhD, do you know your final destination - research, clinical trials, professor, doctor? Thanks for your help. I enjoy reading everyone's posts!
