AAMC: Anatomy of an Applicant

Medical schools consider more than your grades and scores. There are 15 Core Competencies that demonstrate your preparedness for medical school. To show how successful applicants have demonstrated these competencies in many different ways, we interviewed real medical students, their pre-health advisors, and the admission officers who accepted them.

Visit the Association of American Medical Colleges site for lots of preparation information, and download the Anatomy of an Applicant self-assessment guide for your personal use.
