Each year Emory University School of Medicine enrolls approximately 138 new students in the first-year class. Emory encourages applications from Georgians as well as other well-qualified applicants regardless of geographic origin. Admission is possible only at the beginning of the academic year.
Accepted applicants to the first-year class at Emory have a mean grade-point average of 3.7 and a mean score of 11 on the various subtests of the MCAT. While these statistics serve as guidelines, Emory continues to recognize its responsibility to consider applicants as individuals. However, applicants should present an academic record competitive with those accepted applicants at Emory. Applicants are assessed on their qualifications without discrimination in regard to gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, color, age, disability, race, religion, veteran status, national origin, or immigration status. It is not possible to offer acceptance to all competitive applicants; consequently, failure to be accepted is not an indication that a student is considered unsuited for a medical career.

Almost all accredited medical schools, acting through the Association of American Medical Colleges, require the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT). For information on the MCAT, go to www.aamc.org/students/applying/mcat
All applicants to the MD program must complete the MCAT no later than September of the year prior to matriculation. The MCAT must be taken within four years of the matriculation year. If an applicant designates Emoryas one of his/her choice on the AMCAS application, results of the test will be sent directly to Emory. Candidates for the MD/PhD program may also submit scores from the Graduate Record Examination if available. However, the GRE is not required for admission to the MD/PhD program.
