Alright well my friend really wants to get into this program so I know some stuff about it. There are roughly 3,000 applicants a year for the program. Of those 3,000, 300 people get chosen to come in for an interview and of those 300 there are 30 chosen for the actual program. And of those 30 I believe 3 were out of the state of Florida so I would assume that being a Florida in state resident has a strong influence on acceptance. My friend said that the average person that got accepted had a 4.0 unweighted GPA and a 1500 SAT score. So yea the program is EXTREMELY competitive to get into, as are most all 6 or 7 year med programs. If your stats don't match up to those I would suggest looking at the University of South Florida in Tampa. You get an automatic acceptance into their program if you have a 3.7 unweighted GPA and a 1350 SAT score. EC's I know these programs like to see is that you've had experience working/interning in a medical setting whether is volunteering at a hospital or shadowing doctor or doing some sort of medical research. I hope that info helped...good luck!
