Medical School

Getting into a medical school is not an easy task. Each medical school has a different set of requirements but most of the medical schools require higher than average grades, outstanding personality and good record of extra curricular activities.

You have to prepare for medical school even when youre still in undergraduate studies. Its really important to get a good GPA and pass the MCAT (Medical College Admission Test). Of course, you have to get an above average score to impress different medical schools and gain admission. Being a doctor is never an average task as its not just a requirement that you know; you have to know more.

Medical schools dont just look at your grades and scores in MCAT, they will also look at your extra curricular activities. What medical schools are looking for are leaders who can make critical decisions. It really doesnt matter what activities you join or lead, whats important is you show that you can lead a group and lead it well. Aside from extra curricular activities, your volunteer work can give you an edge to be admitted to a medical school. Volunteer to a local doctor, hospital or anything health related. This way, youll show that youre interested and dedicated to helping people.

The subjects youll take in your studies are also important. If youre looking to get accepted to a medical school, you dont want to major in arts. Rather, go for subjects that will help your studies once youre in medical school. Biology, Chemistry, Math and English are some of the subjects you have to strive to excel in. Most of the medical schools are looking for candidates who have studied Chemistry and Biology for at least two years.

Remember that a medical school doesnt only look at your GPA. It will look at the subjects you have studied, your personality and your leadership qualities as well.
