Hey everyone,

Here is my timeline for reference:
January 2022 - May 2022: Senior semester 1
August 2022 - December 2022: Senior semester 2 and graduation
July 2023: Begin medical school (I have a deferred acceptance)

I’ve been talking with my recruiter to get the MDSSP ball rolling, and he told me that I wouldn’t be able to attend DCC and BOLC until after medical school. I feel like I’ve read of people who knock it out before starting medical school. As you can see, I have a little over six months of free time between graduation and starting medical school, so is there any way to knock that out then?

If anyone else has any important MDSSP and/or STRAP information that I may not be aware of, I’d be open to hearing about.
