Attention pre-med students: the 2024 application cycle is upon us! If you plan to apply this cycle or will apply in the future, make sure you have completed this pre-med checklist. There are many components to a medical school application. While you may have heard of having to write a personal statement or taking the MCAT, there are more components to the application than you may have initially believed. Therefore, I have compiled a general checklist for preparing for the application season.
