Admissions Principles

Weill Cornell seeks applicants who uphold the highest academic and personal standards. WCMC is among the most selective medical schools in the nation. Each year the Committee on Admissions selects one hundred and six students from among more than six thousand applicants. The Committee seeks students who it feels are best prepared for future leadership roles in medicine. In addition to thorough preparation in the basic sciences, applicants should have a broad liberal arts education with demonstrated accomplishment in the humanities and social sciences.

We attempt to identify the best qualified applicants from diverse academic and personal backgrounds. In keeping with the principles of Weill Medical College and Cornell University, we seek students with outstanding academic accomplishments who have also demonstrated exceptional personal initiative. Such initiative may take the form of leadership, creativity, research, community service, motivation, or other life experiences.

No person shall be denied admission to any educational program or activity or be denied employment on the basis of any legally prohibited discrimination involving, but not limited to, such factors as race, color, creed, religion, national or ethnic origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, or veteran status. Cornell University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.
