Pre-admission Advisement

We are unable to provide in-person individual advising appointments for prospective applicants. We are also unable to advise applicants as to whether or not their credentials are competitive for admission, by email.

Currently enrolled college students are urged to seek advisement from the premed advisor or office at their college/university. Similarly, students enrolled in a post-baccalaureate medical program or a medical school special master’s program should also seek guidance from the coordinator of that program.

If you do not know who your advisor is, or do not have an advisor, go to the website of the National Association of Advisors for the Health Professions for assistance.

The website of the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) also offers a wealth of information for prospective applicants. Click here for more. There are also links to the website of each medical school in the USA.

Anyone thinking of applying to medical school (including high school students) should purchase online access or a copy of the Medical School Admissions Requirements Handbook, which may only be purchased from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). It has essential information for every prospective medical school applicant about GPA’s and MCAT scores for accepted applicants and other important information about each medical school.
