Holistic Review in Med School Admissions
Holistic review is an admissions process that considers each applicant individually by balancing their academic metrics with experiences and attributes. These factors are viewed in combination to consider how an individual might contribute value not only as a medical student, but also as a future physician. Nearly all medical schools report using some elements of holistic review. This AAMC report explains what holistic review is, how med schools use it in evaluating applications, and how to consider it in your premedical preparation.
