We are looking for those who have a desire to succeed, have great work ethic, and are team players. We do consider your academic performance through the undergraduate and graduate (medical) years, LORs and how you have documented your commitment to Pathology, and your experiences in life (medicine is a part of life, not life itself) including volunteerism. Communication skills are also valued.  If you have had other unique accomplishments and interests, we want to hear about those too!
