Gauging Growth in EY 2021 - Medical Applicants
Take a look at how applications to member medical institutions in TMDSAS grew in EY2021.

The number of medical applicants in entry year 2021 grew by a record 1258, or 21% over the previous cycle. It's the largest single-year increase in TMDSAS history for medical schools. In previous cycles, there were:
Entry Year 2020
- an increase of 30 applicants, which represents a 0.5% increase over the previous cycle for a total 6122 applications
Entry Year 2019
- an increase of 4%, or 243 applications over the previous cycle for a total of 6092 applications
Entry Year 2018
- a 1% increase over the previous cycle, or 54 additional applications for a total 5849 applications
Entry Year 2017
- a total of 5795 applications
Year over year, applicant pools have become increasingly competitive across quantitative
metrics; the average GPA for EY2021 medical applicants was 3.64 and the average applicant
MCAT score was 506.4.
