Loma Linda is one of the rare medical schools with a religious affiliation (Seventh-day Adventist). Although other schools have a religious bent (see: Georgetown and Creighton), no other school’s secondaries have as much ideological commitment to the Christian lifestyle.
Some students apply to Loma Linda’s medical school specifically because of this distinction, while others just want to add another California school to their list or apply to a good statistical match school.
Before you apply, however, you need to know what the school represents and requires from its applicants, and we can easily glean that knowledge from the secondaries.
