You’ve likely heard that getting accepted to medical school is an extremely challenging feat, but just how hard is it, really? Well, out of 62,443 students who applied to medical school in 2021, 39,777 students did not gain acceptance to a single medical school. That means the typical applicant has a 64 percent chance of being completely rejected!
But, you are not the “typical” applicant, so your chances of being accepted/rejected are extremely unique to your situation. With this in mind, how are you to know what your chances are of fulfilling your dream of becoming Dr. You? Well, thankfully, there is something called the LizzyM Calculator. Using just your GPA and MCAT score, it can predict your percent chance of being accepted to at least one medical school based on historical data! Pretty cool, huh?
Even though I tell a lot of students about this awesome tool, I’ve found that many students have a hard time figuring out exactly how to use it. In this video, not only will I show you how to use it, but I will also illustrate how it can be used to determine the proper MCAT goal score to allow you to have the best chances for acceptance to your dream medical school:
Now, GPA and MCAT are not the only thing required to achieve acceptance to medical school. You need to be a well-rounded applicant with a polished and well-rounded application.
