The only academic metric AUA looks at when considering a student is GPA, both prerequisite and cumulative. The Admissions Committee uses a holistic philosophy when evaluating students, typically looking at things like work experience, volunteerism in healthcare fields, personal statements, conduct during the interview process, and intrinsic qualities like determination and dedication. Completing the MCAT is required for US students, but the Admissions Committee will not consider the numerical MCAT score when making an admissions decision.
AUA encourages a highly diverse campus and considers students from all backgrounds and walks of life. Read more about our admissions requirements: https://www.auamed.org/admissions/admissions-requirements/
