Med School Accepts 41 Undergrads

Next year's class at the Medical School will contain approximately the same number of Harvard-Radcliffe undergraduates as in previous years, a Medical School admissions officer said yesterday.

The Medical School and the Joint Harvard-MIT Program in Health Sciences and Technology has accepted 41 Harvard undergraduates, Tania Friedman, assistant to the director of admissions, said.
