Yea that’s what they told me regarding the GPA and MCAT. It’s not guaranteed acceptance, it’s a guaranteed interview with the MD school, but they said it’s a really low chance you won’t get in after meeting the GPA and MCAT standards through the MHS program. I didn’t ask about loans or anything because I’m not doing financial aid or loans since we’re paying out of pocket.
OH SO YOU BALLIN BALLIINNNNNNNN!!! Lol ..No disrespect but do you mind if I ask what he does for a living?

And my friend who did MHS this year had to interview too as a “requirement” but she said it was laid back af and more for show. Just to say they made ppl do it I guess so I wouldn’t worry about that part and yes they do want to have like 120 students but she told me she doesn’t know how that would work because they normally don’t have enough seats during lecture currently.

Thank you for all helpful info!

Interesting.. from what we have been reading/hearing in the past, if ur already in the MHS program, this usually meant no interview for med school!! Hmm.. so it looks like there really have been some changes in the making :(
Thanks for all your help @DarkBluMage ! Really appreciate it :)
That’s exactly what I am thinking! @creativemind0306 I think it makes this program much less attractive for me because I really wanted to skip that interview!

Hopefully they really aren't changing things. I know someone who went to a school. Year before everyone got in and then her year it was guaranteed interview and only select few got in. Not knowing for certain wouldn't want to make me chance it. Good luck guys. I'm starting to jump back into MCAT mode and I'm not applying again until I achieve a decent score.

Congrats @DarkBluMage

Also I've heard very mixed reviews of Drexel's masters program. Like the fact that only ~ 50% finish every year. What have you heard about it that got you to apply?
garanteed admission as well. I know you sign a contract at the beginning and you get to retake the mcat twice to meet the minimum requirement before matriculating. This is the info from the website:
What are the requirements to matriculate into Drexel University College of Medicine?
Once an applicant is accepted into the Drexel Pathway to Medical School program, they must achieve a cumulative GPA of 3.2 with no grade lower than a C in any course, and have a minimum MCAT score of 499 with no section less than a 123. If an applicant is accepted into the program with an overall MCAT score less than 499 or any section less than a 123, they will be required to take an MCAT prep course with the Princeton Review while in the program as part of the curriculum and retake the MCAT by the date determined by the medical school. The student must achieve a minimum overall score of 499 with no section less than a 123 on the MCAT to matriculate into the medical school. Students sign a contract with Drexel University College of Medicine and are not permitted to apply to any other medical school while in the program.

Wow. So you can't apply to any other programs interesting. And I know the benchmarks seem attainable but I've heard the actual set up/style of tests is more difficult/accelerated so that's why only 50% of the class get that 3.2 or better.

If you get in and this is your only option I wish you the best of luck! Hopefully you get into the MHS program.

yeah I've heard that as well, some of the reason that I heard was that students didn't even finish the program due to emergencies or family issues, and others that didn't get into their med school was because they didn't meet either the 3.2 GPA requirement at the end or the 499 MCAT score minimum.

Any dental people accepted into the MHS program?
I’m a dental Person and accepted my offer. Crazy thing is I haven’t gotten a confirmation yet. I pulled up on them and told them I accept and I sent an email. If you accepted the offer for MHS join the group.

Case requires a 514 to meet the conditions for their linkage program? Then you don't really need the linkage program if you need a 514 lol
Yehh they do for their school. But they way it runs it allows me to apply to other schools. When I finish. If I get a 514 I’ll probably go back to UK honestly.

Ok, can someone make this plain to me - I've researched the thread and have come across discussion about transcript requirements, but couldn't conclude definitively if they are required or not. I applied last year to the med school, and was rejected, but then invited to apply to the MHS program. App's already in, but didn't come across any instruction to send in transcripts again. Were they required or not? I'm assuming they'll just use my previous submission from the Med school app...

It is different for everyone. If they need your transcript they will specifically ask for it. I believe everyone will need to send official ones once accepted. That last statement is still up for debate though.

When I talked to them they said official transcripts are only die upon acceptance. You can email them your unofficial but otherwise they have the grade verifications from our AMCAS application

I applied last year too which is why I’ve been trying to figure out how wide the reach was for this program but makes sense since they are increasing the size of the program but makes linkage minimal and/or more competitive.

I just called and the lady who answered said that applications are still being reviewed and that they most likely will be keeping the smaller class size as they have in the past. And about the "invite only" thing, I know of some people who did apply using the general link by googling it without an invite. Good luck to everyone!

ughhh... :bang: Alright, thank you very much for ur update! Guess it's just a waiting game from now till then..tbh, kinda bitter though that I went the extra mile to make sure I got it done priority but still have to wait till the last day to find out :( But at this point, nothing can be done I guess but wait and try to have patience (nearing my end here since I have been waiting patiently this entire med school application cycle):shrug: Sorry y'all, I know that this forum has been pretty positive, so I will try my best to be so until June 1st...
