    4.1% of applicants receive an acceptance
    What are their average test scores?

    GPA 3.87 MCAT 36.

    You can major in any field so long as you complete your med school pre-reqs. Applicants major in everything from agriculture to zoology.
    And besides doing well on the MCAT, what can I do to increase my chances of being accepted to JHU for grad school?

    First of all, medical school is professional school, not grad school.

    From JHU SOM's admission page:
    The 60 women and 56 men in the class of 2017 have performed at a high level academically and scored in the top few percentiles on standardized tests. And while the fact that the majority of students majored in science as undergraduates might come as no surprise, the fact that 35% of the class had a major other than science just might. They have distinguished themselves further by demonstrating leadership qualities, a commitment to service, a passion for medicine and a range of additional personal qualities that are indicative of successful students and physicians.

    Don't worry, the PhD holding faculty members will make sure to remind you of this, lol
