With pandemic-inspired interest in medicine, medical schools have become increasingly competitive with a significant number of medical schools reporting a 25% increase in applicants. Some medical schools are tuition-free which adds to the appeal. According to the AAMC, ten schools’ admissions rates dropped below 3%. GPAs above 3.9 and MCAT scores above 520 are not uncommon at the top schools.

With more students starting early and with the quarantine that inspired many to put more time into studying and applying to more schools, the competitiveness increased. Still, medical schools are looking for best fit candidates with a passion for service and a drive to improve access to the underserved. With limited access to volunteerism students have found creative approaches to reach out into the community, discover virtual opportunities, and invent ways to help those with little access to healthcare services. 

This full-color, clearly organized book written by an expert in medical school admissions is designed to give you ideas for how you can stand out and get accepted. Helpful profiles, charts, and graphs allow for important comparisons and more effective decision-making. With an increasing need for healthcare professionals, you are in the right place. Your acceptance into medical school begins here.
