An individualized holistic review of each complete application includes a variety of objective and subjective factors. The academic record, the college attended, MCAT scores, recommendations, extracurricular activities, work experience, medically related experience, and community service activities are all taken into account when selecting candidates for interview. While not required, many students have participated in research activities.
There is no academic cutoff for consideration. Applicants should demonstrate preparation for the rigors of medical school and competency in the sciences achieved through a broad range of science coursework and the MCAT exam. While there are no absolute course requirements, it is recommended that students complete coursework in Biology, Chemistry both general and organic , Biochemistry, Physics, Psychology and Sociology.
If recommended coursework in Biology, Chemistry or Physics has been completed online, at a community college or through a study abroad program, we prefer to see classroom-based, upper-level science coursework in that discipline. Similarly, we prefer to see classroom-based, upper-level science coursework in Biology, Chemistry or Physics if students complete entry-level coursework in these subjects using AP credits. The supplemental application is used to help us identify your unique interest in Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University.
LKSOM will consider letters of recommendation from a premedical committee, a packet from a school letter compilation service, or three 3 individual letters. If submitting a compilation packet or individual letters, we prefer two 2 letters from professors with whom you completed course work from the AMCAS course classification of Biology, Chemistry, or Physics. At any point in the application process, you are welcome to submit additional letters to support your application and encouraged to use the AMCAS letter service to transmit these letters.
Applicants who indicate that they were the recipient of an institutional action on the AMCAS application are required to contact the school where the institutional action occurred to provide an official statement. This document should outline the details of the event and the outcome of the institutional process. Applicants who receive an institutional action after the AMCAS application has been submitted are required to send a letter to the Associate Dean for Admissions with details of the event.
We will only accept Institutional Action statements mailed directly to our office from the appropriate institutional official Dean of Students, Judicial Officer, etc. A statement about the Institutional Action in your pre-health committee letter does not meet our requirement.
All applicants to the MD program are required to complete an online assessment CASPer , to assist with our selection process. CASPer is an online, video-scenario based test which assesses for non-cognitive skills and interpersonal characteristics that we believe are important for success in our program and will complement the other tools that we use for applicant selection.
The CASPer test is comprised of 12 sections of video and written scenarios. Requesting an electronic transcript from a school that is not yet approved will result in delays for your application, as you will have to submit another request to your registrar for a paper transcript.
