Yeshiva University Medical Alumni Association (YUMAN)

YUMA is an affiliation of YU alumni at various medical schools across the country. They are an excellent resource for those applying to various schools or even looking for more information when making their final decision. Visit their site at https://www.yuman.org/

Before You Apply

The most important question to ask yourself at this point are, "Am I really ready to apply? Have I created the most competitive application possible? Would I benefit from an extra year? A post bac program?" Medical and dental schools see almost 5,000 applications a season. They want to read yours once. Make it count!

Tutoring:

Remember that the YU Tutoring Program is not only to help you pass courses, but to maintain the GPA (science and non-science) which is required for medical and dental programs. Find more information at http://yu.edu/academic-advising/undergraduate-men/tutorial/ or contact Sara Schwartz at sara.schwartz@yu.edu.


MCAT/DAT Exams

The MCAT and DAT exams are one of the most important aspects of your application. Plan ahead. Organize your study schedule. Leave room for contingency plans.
