I am interested in applying to the Meyerhoff Scholars Program at UMBC. Would I still be eligible if I want to pursue an M.D. instead of an M.D./Ph.D?
Preference is given to those who have taken advanced placement courses in math and science, have research experience, and have strong references from science or math instructors. In recent years, a strong preference has been given to those students interested in the Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. (over the M.D.).
Also i found out that students must meet all eligibility requirements: Minimum of 600 on the Math component of the SAT or a composite score of 24 on the ACT (if provided – as UMBC and the Meyerhoff Program are test-optional for Fall 2021 admission) Cumulative High School GPA of a 3.0 or above Aspire to obtain a Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. in Math, Science, Computer Science, or Engineering Display commitment to community service Must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States. I hope this helped.
