Am I the first to post August scores?
Well I got the point I needed to have a shot at my state school and increased 2 points overall. So my score didn't go down, like it did from April 1999 to April 2004. And it didn't stay the same from April 2004 to April 2005.
So I'm OK with this progress, but MD/PhD outright is a VERY long shot at this point just based on MCAT score alone. Now I have to call my contacts, and see where I stand MD/PhD wise before having my app sent to them. Of course, if I get accepted, I could always take a leave in between year MS3-MS4 to complete the PhD.
I know we discussed this in the distant past. But, what would be the advantage of getting an MD/PhD vs. MD alone? You can still do research, and become a pathologist, teach, whatever, with an MD alone. Is it easier to get grants n' such with a PhD? And is it "easier enough" to be worth the extra time and energy getting the PhD?
