depends on what your looking for.....

-program grants MS degree instead of a certificate like some programs give
-Roswell Park Cancer Institute is solid, good name recognition
-learn oncology in depth (can be positive or negative depending if your interested in cancer or not)
-research project is relatively extensive (again, can be good or bad)

So-if your interested in cancer and research, along with a few (2 or 3) biomedical science courses, its worth considering. If your mainly interested in taking biomed science courses and dont want to do research, I'd probably look elsewhere.

thanks for the response...

i definitely like the cancer research aspect of it and the fact that it's in-state. ultimately, though, i was wondering if it would significantly help me get into med school. they advertise more than 50% of those completing the program eventually getting accepted, but i guess a lot of that depends on what people had going in. their minimum requirements are fairly low (22, 3.0), if that's any indication. i have a 32 (10P, 12V, 10B) and a 3.2 and was wondering if the program would be worthwhile.

i emailed them, but only got info i already knew.
