What percent of pre-medical/veterinary/dental students get accepted to medical/veterinary/dental school?
Tufts works with and supports all its students who choose to apply to medical, dental or veterinary school. Our overall acceptance rate to U.S. medical schools is between 75-90% each year. If you focus on those students who maintained a 3.5 GPA, it rises to over 90%. Acceptance to dental school is between 90-100% each year, and to veterinary school, it is about 75-90%.
Students matriculate into schools across the country but many do choose to remain at Tufts; the professional schools at our university are very favorably inclined towards Tufts undergraduates.
Can I take classes at the medical/veterinary/dental school?
Tufts undergraduates do attend lectures, participate in research and do volunteer work at our schools; however, the medical, dental and veterinary schools do not allow part-time students or those who are not degree candidates to take courses.
@andrewna and because BC isnt actually in boston
Holy Cross is very strong and supportive in pre med especially bio.

The Hamilton College Health Professions Advisory Committee prepares a letter of recommendation for any student who wishes to apply. There is no GPA requirement to receive a letter of support.
The Mount Holyoke Committee on the Health Professions will provide a committee letter for all students and alumnae who request one and who meet the committee’s requirements and deadlines, outlined here.
