Disclaimer: This is the best data provided to BYU. Not all applicants allow their data to be viewed by BYU or advisors. In addition, many students apply to both MD and DO programs and hence are included in both figures below. Additionally, many students choose not to complete secondary applications and thus the number of schools applied to reflects the primary application only. Finally, some students withdraw their applications as soon as they are admitted to a preferred program thus the number of acceptances may not accurately reflect the number of potential acceptances students would have received.

386 students applied to MD schools. 176 were admitted, 42%. Average MCAT of 515, GPA of 3.86 undergraduate and 3.73 science.
218 students applied to DO schools. 161 were admitted (74%). Average MCAT accepted 509. 3.65 undergraduate GPA and 3.53 science GPA.
