Medical School Admissions Criteria At A Glance

The following statistics, obtained from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), paint a daunting picture about medical schools admissions. These figures speak for themselves.

• In 2019, 53,371 students applied to medical schools. However, only 21,869 of those applicants were accepted into at least one medical school. In other words, 54% of applicants got rejected to every medical school they applied to.
 
• In 2019, the average science GPA of all applicants was 3.48. However, the average science GPA of all matriculates was higher at 3.66.
 
• In 2019, the average MCAT score of all applicants was 506.1. However, the average MCAT score of all matriculates was much higher at 511.5.
 
• Only about 30% of all applicants who have a GPA between 3.4 and 3.6 get accepted into a medical school. In other words, 70% of applicants who have a GPA between 3.4 and 3.6 do not get into a single medical school. For those who have a GPA between 3.6 and 3.8, the chances of getting into a medical school increase to 47%. About 66% of applicants with a GPA greater or equal to 3.8 get accepted into medical school. Every year, a typical applicant applies to about 15 medical schools.
