Applicants, Interviews, and Acceptances

As an indication of the trends in applications, interviews, and acceptances over the last three application cycles, we offer the visualization below. 

We have shown the MCAT percentile plotted against the overall GPA of our applicants, and indicated who among them were invited to interview, and who among the interviewees were offered a position in our Program.

Note that we are only showing applicants with GPA of at least a 3.0 who scored above the 70th percentile on the MCAT. This represents just over 90% of the applications we receive and 100% of the interviews and acceptances we offer.

We do see that while our interviewed and accepted students very often have GPAs above 3.8 and score above the 90th percentile on the MCAT, that is not universally true. Neither is it true that all applicants with such scores are accepted, or even interviewed.
