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

We are mostly 10th-12th graders who haven't applied to medical school so this question is better suited for another venue. Perhaps you should do some research and ask it on quora or some other platform.

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.
