Guest Ian Wong Posted March 24, 2001 Report Share Posted March 24, 2001 Author:*Paul Date:***9/17/2000 4:04 pm*PST * There is this private medical school that says on their website they offer an the early decision program in addition to the regular admission program. Basically if you apply during a certain time frame, it appears, your in a special applicant pool, but you agree to not apply anywhere else and if your not accepted then you go into the regular applicant pool. I was wondering what peoples opinions are on this? Also (maybe Ian can answer this one) but do you recommend participating in this early decision program the summer after my sophomore year (when I take my MCAT) just as a practice before I do most of my applying in my junior year summer(that is of course if Iam not accepted to the school)? I was wondering if it is a good idea because most colleges won't take you after 2 years, but I thought since maybe its a early decision program maybe there is a good boost in chances. Finally do a lot of schools participate in this because this is the first one on a website to say so? This school says something about you can say it on the aamcs application that you want to be a part of this process. One more question, do I have to wait to get my MCAT results before applying or can I send the application in before that because the application is due august 1 and I won't even take the test until august 14th. Finally what is this whole thing about a preprofessional recommendation packet, I have a preprofessional committee at my school, but I can't attend the meetings and I am currently just trying to get registered, I was wondering what this whole recommendation packet they do is and if it has any advantages? Wait I have one more, because of my scheduling I can't be consistent on the clubs I am a part of, will this cause a problem on a interview or my application, and if so should I explain why I can't be consistent with clubs(especially considering I live 30 miles away from the campus and drive to school so It has to be between or just after classes)?
