For many high school students who know they want to pursue medical school from high school, accelerated direct medical school entry programs, including, MD/BSc and MD/BA programs are a perfect solution. There are many benefits from a direct medical program and early acceptance to medical school, however, the competition to gain acceptance to these coveted programs increases with every year.
Admission to this major is competitive based upon the number of available spaces. Students not admitted to Bio-Medical Sciences (BIOM) will be automatically considered for the Biological Science major. Students who are accepted into the BIOM major directly from high school will be re-evaluated after their first year (upon completion of Semester 2).
Students taking the new SAT need to be able to determine how their scores fit into the competitive landscape of college admission. A new SAT score is not equivalent to the same score on the old SAT and must be translated via a concordance.
