you dont send both secondaries and checks to the same address. its a different ad com.LA:) said:you can definitely apply to both. they make it easy for you--you send both secondaries to the same address, with both checks. sure it seems like another money-squeezing layer of bureaucracy for the regents, but since it's in the name of the underserved, i can't really hold it against them. as for being different med schools, they are not. they are two separate programs with the same basic courses. i believe the difference is in the clinical training --> drew focuses on urban/underserved communities.

but im pretty sure in reality (not in theory) you cannot be accepted to drew and then to ucla...they wouldnt take you away from the other program since they only accept who they really want.
so, yes you can apply to both. think of drew as a sub-program of ucla med.
