Hey Guys - New to the forum! I have a question about these research programs for the summer that are for premeds and u do like projects in microbio, immunology etc. How hard is it to get accepted to these programs? Are they really selective? I am thinking of applying...any advice? Also, another question - i am thinking of applying to med school for early decision at the end of my sophomore year (w/o taking the MCAT) and I was wondering how hard it is to get into those types of programs. I don't go to undergrad at that institution so I am wondering whether it is even worthwhile to apply......?? What do they look at if you apply for that early decision program?
