Transfer to Brown???

    Hi all

    I want to know if anyone has any info. about transfering to Brown Med. Is it a difficult process and selective ? The school I am attending currently is not in the top 50 US med school tier. I was told that they look at the MCAT score. How important is this?
    I assumed since they look at USMLE I, MCAT is not a part of the application.
    Any sincere responds would be much appreciated.

      Most med schools only accept transfers for non-academic reasons (ie your fiance lives there or goes to their school, family issues, etc). People can transfer "up" when they do transfer quite easily (eg from Podunk to Harvard) if they have legitimate reasons because the decision usually is not an academic one (as long as you are passing, you should be fine academically at any med school). What are your reasons for transferring? My understanding is that most med schools won't even consider your transfer app if it's just for purposes of getting a better diploma or education.
