You have the rest of your life to work, 1 year of extra study in a superior environment is not a dealbreaker.

I know Wayne's BS/MD program allows you to apply out. You'll have to check with Stonybrook's program, I am not familiar with it.

It depends on your professional goals. If you want to do something in primary care, and don't care about the "prestige" of an MD, then either will do the trick.

However, if you want to do something like orthopedics or neurosurgery, then I recommend the BS/MD as it will make your life much easier.

Remember though that both of these are very competitive programs. Have a back up plan just in case, and be 100% sure medicine is what you want to do because this has not versatility outside of medicine

yea and just the college is 33,000 per year and med school 50,000 stony is way less and is a way better school. Im still interested in pediatrics either way though. Do you know if pediatrics has prestige?
