Are you considering a competitive BS/MD program? It can have its advantages. Students are guaranteed a spot at both undergraduate and medical school when they are still in high school. Many of the programs are accelerated, enabling you to finish one or two years faster than the average medical student. However, because of these benefits, many high school students flock to these programs. Some BS/MD programs accept just 20 - 30 students out of hundreds of applicants each year.
