IF THEY APPLIED TODAY, MOST U.S. MEDICAL SCHOOL DEANS WOULDN’T HAVE THE GRADES TO GET INTO THE SCHOOLS THEY RUN.
DID WE JUST MAKE IT WEIRD?
At the turn of the century, admissions requirements were pretty basic. Today, they include culturally biased MCAT scores, statistically irrelevant GPA metrics, a glut of recommendation letters, and a background check that would make a Secret Service Agent nervous.
We think these deans should be just as qualified as the students they admit. If you agree, pick a school and send their Dean an email politely asking him or her to retake the MCAT.
