    Will any school use my Master of Science as credit towards MD? Location does not matter. Hoping to reduce the four years required for MD

    No, I highly doubt they'd let you do this.

    You don't state what the subject was for the MS degree. There are some US universities that have MS degrees as part of a post-bac entry program into medical school, but these are very specific, specialized programs. A run-of-the-mill master's degree would be unlikely to be considered for credit from a medical school unless the coursework precisely overlapped with the medical school curriculum, which would be a rare instance indeed.

    Short answer? Not bloody likely.

    Agreed, I've only heard of this is when there are graduate students taking classes with the medical students. This happened in my med school. They had masters program in our 1st year med programs. This counted if they got into med school.

    It essentially was a backdoor program to get into medical school if you paid them an extra $100,000 ($50K for a 2 year master's program)

    There's a lot of this shady type of stuff going on in med schools. If you think admissions into medical school is unbiased, you've got much to learn young padawan

    I slightly doubt it too. It is very specific and all schools accept this. Maybe, you should contact them for more detailed information.
