Class Profile

Classes differ from year to year so the following information should be used with caution and is only provided for general information. It is our policy to not participate in rating surveys conducted by external groups (such as US News and World Report). We do participate in the Medical School Admissions Requirements Handbook (MSAR), which is published annually by the Association of American Medical College (AAMC) and is now also online.

Applications from out of state applicants are welcome; out of state applicants are accepted.
