While you may be excited to be finished with the MCAT, your journey is just beginning. Dr. Ryan Gray of Medical School Headquarters discusses how to select which medical schools to apply to and some application strategies in this webinar.

Dr. Gray notes that picking schools to apply to seems to be the most difficult part for students. The average student applies to 15 schools and the costs can add up; you want to make sure that you’re making the right decisions for yourself on which schools would best suit you and your future.

Dr. Gray discusses where to begin looking and what to ignore. He shares the best sites to research schools and what stats you should focus on to make the decision that’s right for you whether you’re considering an MD school or a DO school.

He also explains why applying early is a good idea and how the timing of your MCAT can influence your application date. He also notes the importance of interviews and how important preparing through mock interviews can be. Check out the recording below to see how Dr. Ryan Gray can help you begin your applications process with ease.
