in regards to the match processes asking for your graduate transcripts. I am contemplating taking a W in a class this semester in a grad course (biostats) b/c I've taking the class already in another grad program (MPH) but my current program wont let me place out of it. I'd rather not take a class I spent two years studying in public health school. Do you think that W will be frowned upon? My grad grades in this program are good otherwise. Or should I suck it up and just take the class?

I don't think graduate courses are looked at that carefully. The most important criteria will be, in no particular order:

1) USMLE
2) LORs
3) AOA
4) Grades in core clerkships
5) Medical school attended
6) Dean's letter
