has anyone else heard of this? Something like a program that takes you as an undergrad and shuttles you through med school - rigorous, too.
I can't find any info online from northwestern uni's site.

Yes, HPME is the most difficult program to get into at NU.

oh boo, hehe...
i guess i wanted to ask, besides the chem sat2 as a prerequisite, do you have to show med volunteering or leadership too?
nothing of the sort is mentioned on the website but that would make sense.
|By Clickspring (Clickspring) on Wednesday, August 06, 2003 - 12:06 pm: Edit|
No, med volunteering isn't a prerequisite, but it will help you!

yz-- if you plan on attending hpme, volunteering and leadership is definitely one of those unwritten prerequisites, particularly volunteering. If you haven't done any volunteering, you really have no shot at getting in. These programs, definitely HPME, are really REALLY competitive. Even for programs whose SAT average is like 1200, these stats aren't accurate since it usually means the program is really biased toward ppl living in its zip code or something like that.

I was admitted to the program - will start in Sept.

I am interested in applying for several of these medical programs but I don't know much about this one. If anyone who was admitted (marthpodi)can please tell me more about this program and what I need in order to apply, I would really appreciate it! Thanks!

Senior-check out the books: "The High School Doctor," and "From High School to Med School." Complete references, you can get it at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Otherwise, the MSAR has some info also.

Those books are great references. Also, check the website posted earlier, that has all the info you'll need on the program, its history, curriculum, and admission requirements. Like most programs, you'll need fairly high SAT I/ACT SATII scores (SATII MathIIc, Writing, and Chemistry are required). Also, a good gpa/schedule. Essays, LORs, etc. About 40-50 people are accepted to this program, and twice that many interviewed.

If you wouldn't mind answering, what are your stats Marthpodi?
|By Marthpodi (Marthpodi) on Thursday, August 07, 2003 - 03:43 pm: Edit|
SAT I: 1530 (780M/750V)
ACT composite: 35
3.99 (UW))/ 4.5 (W)
Valedictorian, 4-yr varsity sport, clubs, volunteering (a lot)...
I think the most important thing for getting into a med. program is demonstrating that you have a lot of experience with medicine and a strong commitment to it. Medicine related EC's are almost essential.
