It seeks ambitious students from all backgrounds and life experiences. We use a holistic review process when considering applicants by reviewing several factors, including academic credentials, national board scores, experience, community engagement, letters of recommendation, and an invitation-only interview. We encourage those interested in applying by using the following guidelines.
