If I transfer to a university with an MD or even a DO program on campus are the chances of getting into that program? Would my chances be better of worse for acceptance?

Depends on many factors.

I say better, assuming you were a good student and got good grades/recs.

If you were a bad student or racked up IAs or something, then probably much worse.

If if's Brown, then chances are good.

Every other school...totally depends.

Brown's PLME program only accept's students directly from high school. The other half of the med school tend to be non-traditional and older applicants to offset the younger PLMEs. Because Brown's class size is already super small to begin with, the chances are probably pretty low comparably.

Your best shot at getting into med school is being at a school where you go get the best GPA. Unless the school is a HYSPM tier school, it becomes less important where you go. Some med schools like BU actually don't really take any of their undergraduates because they have a pretty terrible premed program.

You might draw interest from the school because they would think you're likely to go there if accepted, but you have to be competitive to begin with, like anyone else applying.

I have actually heard of this being pretty commons
