FAQ

Why do I need National Premed Consulting to become a doctor?

54% of all medical school applicants get rejected; that means you have a less than 1 in 2 chance of getting in.   National Premed Consulting provides results-oriented tools and insider information designed to help you leapfrog over the competition.

When should I begin thinking about the medical school application process?

The real answer to that question is that you should begin thinking about it the moment you decide you want to be a doctor, no matter how old you are or where you are in life.  While the actual medical school admission process takes anywhere from 6 months to a year, the real work should begin much sooner – in how you choose your classes, pick your activities and build your personal profile.

Do medical schools require me to have a premed major?

The surprising answer is no, most medical schools do not have this as  a requirement;  you only need to meet certain core course requirements, which usually involve biology, organic chemistry, general chemistry, general physics, calculus and, in some cases, a high-level English course (you need to check with the medical schools you’re interested in for their specific requirements).

Don’t I just need good grades and test scores to get into medical school?

Unfortunately, they only take you so far – because the vast majority of premed students have those as well.  That means you must stand out as an individual in a very specific way – today’s medical schools admissions departments are looking for well-rounded personalities, as well as students that are bright, compassionate and capable of dealing with the highly-demanding course work at medical school.   Focus on good academics, but also focus on the personal attributes that a medical school will be looking for.

How many medical schools are there in the U.S.?  How many should I apply to?

There are 159 medical schools in America – 133 offer the M.D. (Medical Doctor) degree, 26 offer the D.O. (Doctor of Osteopathy) degree – and they all receive thousands of applications every year.   You should apply to as many as you can – more importantly, you should make sure you are the kind of candidate they will want.
