6 College Match Students Achieve the Rarest of Admissions Possibilities

Six College Match students have been accepted into the eight-year Brown University undergraduate and Medical School program, allowing them to enroll in Brown Medical School without taking the MCAT Exam as long as they maintain reasonable grades as a Brown undergraduate. It is among the rarest of all admissions possibilities for high school seniors. The program usually receives 2,300 applicants (almost all from upper-income families) and only accepts 50 students a year. Very few inner-city low-income students are accepted into this program.
