What is the best undergraduate curriculum?
Although some undergraduate schools have a specific pre-med program, no specific program or course of study is necessary to apply to the Emory AA program. We accept students with majors as diverse as political science, biology, art history, and engineering.  Writing skills, logic and analytical skills, as well as organizational skills are all important for students to perform well in the program.

Does it matter when I turn in my application?
Yes, it can make a difference.  We have a rolling reviewing process.  The committee begins reviewing completed applications immediately.  Although the final deadline is not until the middle of December, we recommend that you submit your application, test results and all supporting documents as soon as possible.
