Is it worth trying to apply to a BS/MD combined program? What is the experience, match rate, interview process, and average MCAT?

BS/MD programs are only good if you know FOR SURE you want to become a doctor. I know some people who realized they didn't want to go into med while in the program and had to either continue studying in a program they didn't want/quitting school and trying to change majors. Different programs have different requirements for GPA and MCAT scores; you have to constantly retain a certain academic record throughout the program. I would say that BS/MD programs are probably just as hard to get into as top schools, if not harder.
