Hi everyone! Well, I've decided to post some info on the program I'm in since I've been getting a lot of PMs about the setup and for information and I just don't have the time right now to reply to everyone (and I feel so terrible about it). I wanted to put up some direct links to the program so you can see the school's description itself, and thought this would be a great way to collect any questions (and answers from current students) about applications, courses, professors, extracurriculars, philadelphia, etc. Current (or former) Special Science Students, pls feel free to answer any questions that surface, as its one of the best ways to get the word out about our program. Please realize this program is DIFFERENT from the "Traditional" post-bacc programs many on this forum speak of where you take your general medical school requirements. There is a separate program at Univ of Pa for that purpose although the administration and advisors are the same.
