Medical schools seek applicants who have proven their mastery of science concepts and skills, tested their interest in medicine through medical/clinical experiences, shown an ability to communicate effectively with patients and colleagues, and demonstrated personal qualities such as compassion, integrity, and sensitivity. Therefore, while a strong academic performance in premedical courses and on the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) is important, personal qualities, experiences, and motivation are also critical factors in determining whether an applicant will be admitted.
