Hi! I have, but I haven't heard back yet.
I'm going to their open house on Tuesday and hopefully I'll have more information then.

Hi! I apologize for not responding sooner, crazy work schedule.

Yes, I ended up going. This was my second Open House with them ( I also went last May).
A lot of people showed up and they combined people that were interested in their MHS and Osteopathic programs together. A first year medical student, Ryan gave us a quick tour of school (it's a closed campus-looks like a big 2 story maze). We also visited a cool virtual anatomy lab where you can dissect corpses and study different organ systems individually.
Then we had presentation given by a MHS director talking about the masters program itself. Here is a quick summary:
-During anatomy lab, the specimen are already pre dissected by 1st year medical students. Our job would be just show up and learn what's inside.
-MHS students don't have any overlapping classes with medical students, but the first year of med school would strongly mimic what was already learned at MHS.
-Same professors and sometimes even same tests are given.
-MCAT 500+ and GPA in MHS guarantees an interview (but in reality, the seat is yours)
-It is possible to work for school during the program
-Lectures are powerpoint heavy

I also briefly met their new Admissions director Tava and she said that the first application discussion should have been last week of September. So I'm guessing anyone who already applied should hear from the pretty soon.

LMK if you want to know anything else!

I'm looking to apply to their program this month. However... 495 MCAT. Will I have to retake for an interview/acceptance to their COM? :-(

Yes, they would ask you to retake it. They also suggest to take the MCAT before starting MHS since it’s a rigorous program. I’m taking mine in January.

They make exceptions if your application is good everywhere else. I know they have accepted people with GPA lower than what they are asking on the website.

Great info thanks for sharing! Do you know what gpa you need in MHS to get into the med school?? Is there a strong linkage to the med school with this program even though they don’t gurantee admission??

hi! As long as you maintain 3.5 gpa and have 500+ on the MCAT, you will be accepted to their medical school. Their interview is just a formality:)

Thanks!! That’s great to hear. Would you say the classes are doable to get a 3.5??
From what I know it’s doable. I’m not a student yet myself but I know people struggle with their first tests but then recover. The style of testing is a little different in this program.
