Application & Admission Requirements
When to Apply
You should apply during your senior year in high school. You can also apply during your post-high school study in yeshivot and seminaries in Israel or elsewhere. High school graduates who have not enrolled as full-time students at any of the Lander College campuses or at any regionally-accredited college or university are eligible, as well.
In order to be considered for the Medical Honors Pathway applicants must have:
- SAT score (math/verbal) of at least 1400, and writing score of at least 660
- Un-weighted high school GPA of 3.7
If you meet these academic standards, and apply to the Medical Honors Pathway, you will be interviewed by a member of the New York Medical College’s Admissions Committee, after admission to one of the Lander Colleges.
Applicants must also submit
- Two letters of recommendation attesting to the maturity and qualifications of the applicant for the Medical Honors Pathway
An essay not to exceed 5,300 characters, prepared by the applicant, discussing why you are interested in a career in medicine and enrollment in the Medical Honors Pathway
Applications to the Medical Honors Pathway will be reviewed after a student has been accepted to one of the Lander Colleges.
