    I'm trying to go to graduate school before apply to medical school. However, I am interested in both MPH and MS in biochem program.
    But I am trying to apply same program with different schools so that I won't have to spend too much time on preparing application.

    Which program is easier to get in?? I've heard that MPH is good preparation to go to medical school but some people told me that many applicants for the MPH program already are MD, PA, MSN or some MS degree with high stats.
    Is that true??
    I'm also considering in health promotion or exercise science field which I have more advantage to get acceptance if I can't get in to any other program. But I'm more interested in MPH or MS in biochem.
    Any advise?? Thanks!

    I'm currently in an MPH program right now. I admit I'm a bit biased, but I think an MPH is a great route, and much more useful in addition to the MD you and I hope to eventually earn. An MS in any hard science is mostly useful if you plan to do research in that area, and even then it falls short of the training/respect you would get from a PhD program. An MPH, on the other hand, is applicable to almost any field of medicine. If you want any more information, feel free to ask!
