5 Reasons Premeds FAIL To Get Into Medical School

It’s more difficult to get into medical school now than it has ever been. It seems that every year, more and more premeds apply to medical school and yet the number of first-year positions stays relatively the same. If your dream is to become a doctor, you will have to avoid the pitfalls that so many premeds fall into – and the first step is understanding what those pitfalls are.

According to the AAMC, over 62,000 premeds applied during the 2021-2022 application cycle and only 23,000 matriculated. That’s an acceptance rate of only 37% and a decrease of about 5% compared to last year. If you’re a premed just starting your future doctor journey, these can be worrisome statistics.

There is a silver lining though. Getting into medical school isn’t like winning the lottery. There are steps you can take and mistakes you can avoid that will help ensure acceptance, even when the odds seem stacked against you.

Here are 5 reasons why premeds fail to get into medical school and what you can do to avoid them.
