Pre-Medical Advising: Choosing Schools

Choosing medical schools to apply to can be an overwhelming process, but the HSAC is here to help you with the options and to advise you on which schools will work best for you. Visit the "choosing schools" page under General Resources for general advice on evaluating schools and deciding how many schools to apply to.

The medical school application process is notoriously expensive, so make sure you can actually see yourself going to every school you apply to. Here is a typical estimate of application costs for a student applying to 15 schools:

  • Primary Application Fee: $2000 - $3000
  • Secondary Application Fee: $50 - $150 per school
  • Note: You will need to cover travel expenses for your interview; those costs rack up, especially if you are applying out of state.

With that said, here is a list of online resources to help you search for schools that might be a good fit for you:
