Hi guys, I need your advice. So now that I've gone through the super long process of MD/PhD admissions, I'm facing a really hard decision. I feel lucky that I have to make a decision like this but, nonetheless, very overwhelmed. First, I got into a few MSTP programs that I was really excited about. Last week, not expecting to get in to any others, I thought I had basically decided which one I really wanted to go to: University of Pittsburgh. But then, on friday, I got into Harvard Medical School (not MSTP). All this time, I have had my heart set on doing an MSTP program. This was the only not MSTP program that I had interviewed for (once harvard already told me no for the mstp interview). I went mainly because the people in my lab convinced me to go and because my family, who lives in the boston area, are really lobbying for me to stay around. But, as I visited harvard and was really impressed with how research oriented and exciting just the med school is and thought about what having the name harvard associated with my name might do for my future career, I began to consider applying there to be worthwhile. So now I'm very reluctant to turn down the med school especially after reading online about their options for transferring into MD/PhD maybe with some funding and probably guaranteed with no funding. I plan to call harvard tomorrow to find out more. But, what to you think about my dilemma? Help me out if you can.
