Getting into medical school in the United States is a competitive ordeal, with approximately 53,000 students applying each year for 22,000 seats. That means the acceptance rate is roughly 41%. Matriculants also have an average GPA of 3.73 and MCAT of 511.5, which is the 83rd percentile.
The Primary Application to medical school is done through either AMCAS, AACOMAS, or TMDSAS, depending on whether you’re applying to MD (allopathic) or DO (osteopathic) medical schools, and whether you’re applying to Texas medical schools.
Secondary applications are sent about a month later, and unlike the primary application, are specific to each school. If the medical school is impressed by your primary and secondary applications, then you’ll be invited to an interview. Interviews can be traditional, multiple mini interview (MMI), or panel.
Finally, the medical school will give you a decision, being acceptance, rejection, or waitlist.
