It’s no secret: getting accepted into medical school is not an easy task. The nationwide average acceptance rate is just a meager 7%, and last year of the 53,000 plus students that applied, only around 20,000 were actually admitted - less than 40% got in. It’s your dream to become a doctor, why not give yourself the best chance to beat the bleak odds of the medical school admissions landscape?
“Jesus heard this and said to them, ‘Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do." Mark 2:17
