It's no exaggeration to say that medical school admissions are as competitive as ever. The American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC) announced an 18% increase in applications during the 2020 admissions cycle. That's quite a leap compared to the average 3% annual increase over the last decade. Available spots in medical schools haven't kept up with this skyrocketing increase in applications. While applications increased 60% between 2002 and 2020, the number of enrolled students only increased by 35%.
What does that mean for you? It's more important than ever to understand what medical school admissions committees want from applicants. To help you maximize your chances, we're hosting a free webinar on "What Medical Schools Are Really Looking For: How to Become a Better MD Candidate."
This presentation will cover:
- Admissions Data and How Applications Are Processed
- What Admissions Officers Look for Inside and Outside the Classroom
- How to Take Your Extracurriculars to the Next Level
Chelesa Fearce, an MD/PhD candidate at the Yale School of Medicine, will host this free webinar on Tuesday, December 7th at 5pm PST/8pm EST.
