Hey guys...I know alot of you are thinking about taking a year off and doing an SMP program. The Temple ACMS program (Advanced Core in Medical Sciences) GUARANTEES admission into Temple School of Medicine after completion of the program. Its a brand new program that started this year and I have many friends that are in it right now. While in the program, you have to maintain a 3.5 and have at least a 30 on the MCAT (you must have a 30 by the end of the program). It's a really good way to get into medical school but admission is selective so apply early. Here is the link:

Good luck:)

Lilwheezy, I'm curious. What are your friends saying about their ability to maintain a 3.5 GPA in the ACMS program? Are they enjoying their time at Temple?

I was curious about that too. How hard is it maintain a 3.5...?

Temple ACMS is a great program but they had over 1000 applicants for 25 spots last year. I was told by someone on the admin committe that if you don't have at least a 3.5 science gpa, dont apply this year! Thats how crazy competitive this program has gotten with the guaranteed acceptance. it no longer is a post-bacc but just as hard or harder to get into as a med school. Don't waste your time applying.

If it has a guarantee, it is med school.

Haha.

I really liked Temple Med, but I swore to myself that I wouldn't give them any more money after they rejected me. However, should be a pretty great program, and if you already have a 30 or above on the MCAT, all you have to worry about is maintaining a high GPA. Good luck.
