Getting into UST med with a UST music program
I've read that UST med reserves 70-75% of freshmen slots for UST graduates, 25-30% from other schools and 5-7% of that would be foreign students. I am thinking of taking what's available to me in UST which is a program in music. However, I could also take a pre-med from FEU.
My question would be which student would most likely have a better chance at UST med given that the qualifications of the student are:
A. Graduate from the UST Conservatory of Music with additional science courses taken and exemplary NMAT score.
B. Graduate from another university (FEU) in a pre-med program with latin honors and exemplary NMAT score.
From this subreddit, I've seen two people mention that they know someone who is a music grad in UST med. However, there is not enough info about other factors that could have affected that.
I came across another post wherein it was mentioned that the population of non UST grads in med is very small and majority of them come from unis such as Ateneo and La Salle, not to mention that they all have latin honors. Even so, others who have exceptional GWAs and high NMAT scores from other schools still get rejected.
This leaves me thinking what path in actuality would pave a higher chance into getting UST med and what scenario would be more entertained towards acceptance.
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
