On Thursday, February 28, 2013, SNMA-MAPS hosted a dual degree panel with five MD-PhD students from the University of Chicago. Over dinner, the panelists discussed why they decided to come to UChicago and revealed what life is like for a MD-PhD student. Undergraduates who attended the panel posed some interesting questions. One that sparked a lot of frank conversation was “What do admissions committees look for in applicants?”
Thank you to our amazing panelists for being such an energetic and informative group, and we hope that the undergrads who attended were inspired to at least consider earning a dual degree.
