  • IDK but my cousin was at the top of his premed class and did great on the entrance exam and did not make it to med school. I think you are going to need to call the medical school you want to attend and ask them. It may differ from school to school. Good luck!!!

  • Medical schools are very competitive. When you are finishing a pre-med program at a four year college, your advisors will help guide you to applying to the best matches for you.
