Assessing Medical School Admissions Policies

The Association of American Medical Colleges has released a compelling report that assesses medical school admissions policies based on two Supreme Court affirmative action decisions. This report outlines suggestions for race and ethnicity conscious policies for medical school admissions committees. What is the implication of this for applicants? Applicants will be evaluated in an "individualized" and "holistic" fashion so that race and ethnicity are only one of many factors that are taken into account. Admissions committees may also be restructured based on these considerations. Click Here to read the report.
