I really like this Wake Forest program, but I am not URM. My single mother makes pretty decent money, but they've never really helped me out financially and I file my taxes independently. I have always had to work, 20+ hrs/ week in college, sometimes holding two jobs. Do you think the admissions people at WF post-bacc would consider me?

i know that the URM status is not a factor...the whole financial status...that is really a good question...however they do not ask for financial aid information for the application process at all...even on their website their eligibility does not state anything like that...best word of advice...call them and ask...

While the program does seek to increase underrepresented groups in medicine, I know a few people that have gone through the program that are not URMs so I say apply and good luck!
