The Bar Has Been Raised

Considering  professional school??

Well, it may be time to step your game up, as more and more qualified students are submitting applications for medical school (and the same is likely to be true for pharmacy and dental school). During this past application season, the AAMC reported a 2.6% increase in the number of first time applicants.  With them, these applicants brought a higher average MCAT score (29) and  higher average GPA (3.5)  Keep in mind, that these numbers refer to APPLICANTS, not ACCEPTED students, which basically means stiffer competition when decision making time comes around.  There are still far fewer seats in medical school classes than there are applicants. <—understatement of the year.
