Is It Getting Harder to Get into Health Professions Programs?

The Savvy Premed

We're a blog focused on pre-meds, but we have a lot of love for the other health professions programs, too. In fact, our advisors regularly work with all types of applicants, including physician assistants (PAs), physical therapists (PTs), dentists, podiatrists, and optometrists.

Our expert team has been gathering data to answer one of the most common questions we receive: "Is it getting harder to get in?"

For now, we've focused on the five disciplines listed above (along with med school, of course), compiling our data into handy graphs and determining the verdict about whether it's harder to get in now vs. five years ago.

Check it out and let us know if you have any questions!

We're currently doing intro meetings with all of these types of students, so don't hesitate to book a FREE meeting and pick our brains!
