Admissions Requirements

AUC’s Admissions Committee considers many factors when reviewing an applicant for admission. These include undergraduate performance and MCAT score, as well as intellectual and social maturity, critical judgment, adaptability, volunteer work, and life experiences, and graduate school performance (if applicable). We call this a holistic approach to admissions—a process that looks at an applicant as a whole person, not an exam score.
