Is the Uconn post bacc even more selective than Bryn Mawr? Should an out of state student even consider applying there? And finally, the website says that the post bacc is a 2 year program, but if one were to begin in the spring semester, could they complete the program in a spring + summer + fall + spring sequence? thanks a lot!

UConn takes 12 out of 300 or so applicants, at least for those applying to begin in the fall. For Bryn Mawr to be this selective, they would need to have about 2000 applications per the 80 or so that attend...don't know if this is the amount of applications that they actually deal with. If you're really interested in attending UConn med school, definitely apply to the UConn program, because most of the UConn postbacs end up going to UConn med school. However, if you're unsure of where you want to go to med school, or really interested in one of the med schools linked up with Bryn Mawr, Bryn Mawr might be a better option for you. Either has a very high med school acceptance rate. The UConn program isn't necessarily a 2 year program--during my interview at UConn we worked out a tentative 1 year schedule, and I was accepted. I imagine you could complete the program in the way you mentioned if it's cool with Dean Sanford and the adcom. Good luck whatever you do!

One can google UCONN. Go to school of medicine hyperlink. And from there I think it's under addmissions. (?)

But from the UCONN SOM site one can find the app stuff.

It's more about contacting Dean Keat Sanford, PhD at the SOM in Farmington directly. Not the campus in Storrs. It's Dean Sanford's "baby".
