    The short answer is yes if you're accpeted... When you have time do a search on the forums for med school or look at some of Hornets old post... I think there was a post out there that he answered this question with a lot of good information. I have to run myself if not I would search it for you and post it up...

    Good luck.

    The Academy has the ability to send up to around 20 people per year to medical school. Often times the slate is not filled due to a lack of people who qualify (getting the grades and required courses can be daunting). My class year (2010) did not fill the slate. I went through the entire process and can answer any specific questions; though I would take Boozebin's advice and try and find my old posts on the topic since they are more comprehensive. I ended up choosing to become a different kind of doctor (PhD), but did the whole med school process up to the point of actually enrolling at a school.
