I have a question.... I was wondering, kind of sounds stupid. I've done research for 3 yrs, extensive background. But keep on going back and forth on it. I guess I have to see which schools I get into the program (because it makes a big deal for me). However, I kind of have family issues which is adding to the problem. If some of my family stuff gets resolved I might have the time to dedicate 7 years to get both degrees. If it doesnt I might not, and unfortunately my family stuff won't get resolved around next year during acceptances.... Now this is my question, lets say I get hopefully into an MD/PhD program, and then learn that I might not be able to devote 7 years of my life. Maybe even move out of the country after 4 years! Now can I at that point, say no to the joint program and get into just the MD program, or is it a done deal? help!
