Thank you for your interest in the Direct BS/MD Program Consulting from MedSchoolCoach. Direct high school to medical school admissions (often referred to as direct programs, BA/MD, BS/MD, etc) is one of the most competitive application processes in the world. Often, these programs are harder to get into than Ivy League schools and other competitive undergraduate school. At MedSchoolCoach, we help high school students get accepted to these ultra competitive combined degree programs. Whether it is a 7 year, 8 year, BA/MD or BS/MD program, our advisors will help you develop the perfect application. About one quarter of US medical schools offer combined college/M.D. programs for well qualified high school students. Acceptance rates hover under 5% for almost all these programs, so putting forth a great application is essential. High SAT/ACT scores and a great high school GPA are musts, but so is a great personal statement, supplemental essay and tremendous interviews.
