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.

Academic Requirements

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.
