Did anyone else apply to Tulane's ACP program? I was just curious...I am pretty excited about the opportunity to attend this program if I get the opportunity. Anyone else apply?

I applied a couple of months ago. It looks like a great program I am just worried about how much Tulane's medical school tuition is. $45,000 a year seems insane

I did the program last semester, and will be a first year student this Fall. It is a great opportunity if you want to be admitted to Tulane. If you do well, you have a guaranteed spot. You can not beat that deal.

That sounds awesome vsherrel. I don't know if you would be willing to tell me, but what were your scores? I am just wondering what sort of scores I need to get into this program. Also, where were you waitlisted last year that allowed you to apply for this program?

Congrats on getting accepted to Tulane in the Fall! That sounds like an awesome deal. You don't have to retake those three courses either, correct?

I applied to the genetics program last month, do you have any advice on the program or anything you wished you knew before you did it. Thanks!

So I thought previous ACP's started in the fall but the current website say the program starts in June. Is this a new change or did I read something incorrectly?

So, what I don't understand is that if the ACP is supposed to involve taking classes with the MSI's then why do classes for the ACP start in June? Don't the first years start in like July or August?

Or are the classes not with the medical students like the program advertises?

well if you look at the anatomy website there is another summer program for histology for med students or post-grads to improve their education. I'm kind of wondering if we are going to be involved with that. From my understanding ACP are taking histology in the summer and anatomy in the fall. I imagine anatomy in the fall would be with medical students but I'm not sure

In the past the ACP students took histo and anatomy with the medical students during the Fall semester, starting in August. This year Tulane is changing their cirriculum and combining histology with cell bio and a few other things to create a supersized systems based course (I think, we still haven´t heard officially). The point is, from what I heard, this Summer is going to be your last chance (again, I think) to take histo as a stand alone course. Now they haven´t figued out what else to do with the ACP kids yet, so they´re just making them take histo in the summer and then Anatomy in the fall. You will have all the current T1s in your Anatomy class in the fall, I´m not sure if there are going to be any medical students taking histo in the summer.

Next year the cirriculum of the ACP will probably be adjusted to match the Cirriculum adjustement for the medical school (maybe, unless it doesn´t).

Do any other allopathic medical schools have similar programs?

EVMS has the most similar program. You take classes with the med students and then almost everyone in the program matriculates into EVMS.

RFU also has a program that´s pretty close

Georgetown, Tufts, and Drexel have programs that are similar in that you take the same classes as the med students (mostly), but most of the program graduates don´t go to the medical school that hosted the program. They instead use their hopefully high grades in medical school courses to get them into other medical school. Those programs all have very high matriculation rates to medical school.

There are over a dozen more. Search the postbac forum if you´re interested.

I applied to Tulane's ACP. The number of people in this thread who've applied kind of makes me nervous. There are only about 20-ish spots, right?

Yes, I heard back and got in, but had to decline because I also got into Wake Forest earlier that week!

Congrats! I also got into ACP but haven't heard anything from my waitlist school. Hopefully, I can share the same luck with you. Regardless, I feel very blessed to get in Tulane ACP. :)
