    AUC MERP vs. AUA BSEP

    Advertisements



    Hey Everyone,

    I've been offered AUA BSEP and AUC MERP for August 2013. I know MERP is a tough program to get through and the attrition rate is high, but what about for AUA's BSEP? Has anyone been through a similar situation or been through AUC MERP or AUA BSEP that can give me some advice on what to do?
    It would be greatly appreciated!

    Don't know much about either, but I was curious: what were your app stats? Just curious what type of stats gets the MERP offer.

    Thanks!!!

    AUC has much better name recognition and federal student loans, I think it's an easy choice if you ask me. As for the program itself, it's rigorous of course but not impossible. If you study and work hard, you will pass, and that's really all there is to it. Of course there's going to be attrition because the program is a second chance for people with lower stats to prove themselves, and naturally some of those people just aren't going to cut it. Even still, the last MERP class had a pass rate of approximately 70%.

    my stats weren't great. mcat:24 sgpa: 3.0 cuz of changing majors around in freshman/sophomore years. but i had a lot of clinical and research experience so i guess that helped.
