I was wondering if people knew what schools considered an application to the MD only path and MD/PhD path concurrently? I'm currently trying to decide whether I should try pursuing MD/PhD or not. I know VCU considers your applications for both separate and at the same time, per their website. Any other schools? I'm most likely a lower tier applicant but a relatively strong one for MD only. Thoughts on my app are welcome too. Me: Senior applying at the end of this year 3.93 GPA (BCPM: 3.91), 33S MCAT Lots of shadowing Volunteering > 1 yr. at free clinic Good amount of non-medical community service (just stuff I enjoy) Research: 1 summer at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in molecular pharm (oral presentation) 1 summer and 2 semesters (with another semester of work coming) of senior thesis research where I had a small research grant to fund it from a small organization. Doing nanotoxicology research here at my school, a small private LAC in East Tenn. with my grant. Two of my professors were my advisors, so they would be my LOR's. So, any thoughts? I'm a bit ham-stringed being at a small LAC with low research output. I didn't seriously consider MD/PhD until Spring of Junior year or so. Am I too weak on the MCAT and research to be a viable applicant? Thanks!
