    I just received notice that I've been "accepted" to a 3-week prematriculation course. I guess it's just something to get some students primed and ready (especially us "older" students :rolleyes: ) I'm not sure how intense it will be, but I know that we have to purchase several of the texbooks that we will need freshman year. Does anyone else have a program like this available at your school? Any idea what all it entails?

    Pitt has a program for urms and non traditional students. I am also going to do the program. At Pitt it is not real intense just a chance to splash your feet into the whole medical school thing and get an apartment and get situated

    I signed up for the one at Cinci and I've heard that it is a good thing to do if you've been "out of the loop" as I've been. But if you are up to date on everything you might want to skip it to enjoy your last summer of freedom.

    Cinci just gets you up to speed on the school, registration, and early ID work so that once classes start you should be able to concentrate more on the studies than everything else going on. Also they give you $100 for attending so I guess that there is a little financial incentive.

They pay you $100 to attend? I had to pay $75 for the course. They don't also pay you $100K for the four years you're there, do they? <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" />
