What Does the UMHS Admission Committee Look For in an Applicant?

What does the Admission Committee at UMHS look for in a Medical school applicant? https://hubs.la/Q01hBqS20 Our medical school admissions committee is concerned with whether the applicant has the ability and drive to succeed in the incredible rigors of Medical School. This is determined holistically by looking at GPA, MCAT, volunteer work, and life experience. Greater weight is given to the trajectory of academic performance, rather than just cumulative GPA on its own. We strive to understand the broader competencies that a candidate brings to the table such as leadership and communications skills, community service, and empathy. A solid personal statement can be extremely helpful and one of the pivotal factors for admission into UMHS.
