UM-Flint, MSU med school open preferred admissions



The University of Michigan-Flint and Michigan State University have announced an early medical school acceptance program for certain undergraduates.

The program provides for assured admissions for junior undergraduates at the Flint campus into the College of Human Medicine at Michigan State.

The two schools said Monday the program gives preference to students who are the first in their family to attend college, graduated from a low-income high school, are eligible for Pell grants or express interest in a high-need medical specialty.

Three students will be accepted each year. Similar programs operate between Michigan State and Northern Michigan, Michigan Technological,and Grand Valley State universities.
