APPLICATION PROCESS OVERVIEW
Grades are not the only criteria for acceptance. Although the greatest weight is placed upon a student’s scholastic record, there are many additional factors that are taken into consideration during the admission process. Interviews facilitate the admission process and help the admission committee to determine a student’s demeanour, educational level and degree of commitment. Prospective students and applicants are encouraged to present a strong case for themselves through outlining their work or volunteer experience, community contributions and scholastic achievements in their personal essay and by providing strong letters of recommendation. Motivation and perseverance are some of the attributes considered when selecting a applicant.
At present, there is no requirement for an entrance examination. For students from North America, a good Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) score may provide an applicant an added advantage in the selection process but it is not required
