Guaranteed Admission to Medical School


What will your major be in college? This is a common question that many students are asked during the college application process. Some students are unsure about their career path and go to college to gain different experiences that will lead them to a major. On the other hand, there are those students who have had internships in their prospective career and are certain about their professional goals.

For high school students who want to train toward becoming a medical doctor, there are combined BA/MD programs that guarantee students admission to medical school after undergraduate studies. Some of the perks of these programs include not having to take the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) and skipping the lengthy medical school application process. Below are a few medical schools that offer combined BA/MD program.

The University of Alabama at Birmingham

The University of New Mexico

University of Pittsburgh

The University at Buffalo, The State University of New York

Georgetown College

University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine

University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine

University of Louisville

University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa

Submit Your FAFSA Earlier


The first week of school is usually exciting! For those who are lucky, there is a limited amount of homework and time to catch up with friends about their summer adventures. Also, there is time to explore what’s new on campus while attending events with free food. It may seem like the difficult part of college with tests and quizzes is in the distant future.

As demands increase in the coming weeks, keep in mind that the Free Application for Federal Student Aid Application (FAFSA) can be submitted as early as Saturday, October 1, 2016 for the 2017-2018 academic year. This early financial aid option provides families and students with a means to determine their costs for various institutions to make a knowledgeable decision.

Mark your calendar and submit the FAFSA early!
