  • Association of Medical Schools in New York
    The admissions process into medical school is extremely competitive in New York State with thousands of applications for schools to review and only a fraction of that number available to fill with new students, 82,000 and 1,830 respectively in allopathic medical schools in 2011. For the most part, the medical schools use overall grade point average (GPA), science GPA, and MCAT scores as a threshold during the screening phase of the admissions process. However, more and more, the medical schools are using a holistic approach to admissions that carefully evaluates a student’s demonstrated work ethic, and seeks a balance between their personal and academic experiences. For more information on admissions at the medical schools, please check out the link.
