    I assume you've already been here:

    Sounds like a wet dream, eh?

    They *insist* that you not take the second semester of orgo?

    They *insist* that you not take the MCAT?

    They pay *you* a $2K stipend to take summer school in NY?

    You can defer entrance for a year just by asking?

    Man, oh man, where did I go wrong.

    Oh yeah - freshman year. Nevermind.

    that is a very clever way to keep their students from applying to other med schools!

    i went to williams (grrrr.) and had a few friends who applied and got accepted to this program sophomore year. i think that it is a great program b/c it allows you to explore and learn so much more in undergrad, rather than concentrating on your premed courses...at a place like amherst (a small college), it is hard to justify sitting in a classroom with 100 students...it always was for me...i much preferred my 15 student history classes...

    my advice - if you know for sure that you want to go to med school, apply!!! and become a history major : )
