What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"N/A" More from this Member | Report Response

"Improve on communication with current students, future students, and prospective students. No one ever answers the phone and e-mails get responses 1-3 weeks later and that is IF you get a response.

"The admissions commitee is very friendly when you are at the interview. They were very funny and took away all of my stress.

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
