    I was just wondering if you guys could tell me how many years are needed for undergrade to apply to med school, do med schools in the US accept students applying to get into med school at their third year?

    I believe you need to have a completed Bachelor's, Master's, w/e as of the date that you matriculate.

    a 4-year degree is required. Students can apply during the summer after 3rd year to attend medical school the fall immediately after graduating from college.

    I believe that would be acceptable.

    If you're hardcore, can't you get into Irvine with only 3 years of undergrad?

    you can apply once you get your degree and all the requirements done, 3 years, 4 years, 5 years, it doesnt matter as long as you have the prereqs

    thats not to say that all med schools will consider each candidate equally if they graduated late or early
