Rhodes College has one of the top medical school acceptance rates in the nation. Eighty-six percent of Rhodes graduates with a GPA greater than 3.4 and an MCAT score greater than 57 percent have been accepted to medical school over the last five years.
Harvard, Vanderbilt, and Emory were among the medical schools where Rhodes graduates were admitted in 2018. Two graduates were awarded spots in the National Institutes for Health Medical Scientist Training Program, which provides a fully funded path to a PhD and MD.
Carey Thompson, vice president of enrollment and communications, said, "Our pre-health advising program has a top-notch reputation, as proven by this year's list of acceptances."
Rhodes offers pre-health advising to all students pursuing medical school or a career in the health professions. Mentorship begins as soon as students are admitted to the college and continues beyond graduation.
