My son recently graduated from medical school May 2018 and is now a Resident Pediatrician. Here are the steps he took:
1) High scores on SAT & ACT
2) Select a college/university that offers at least "Biological Science" (you don't have to major in Pre-Med)
3) Score well on MCAT "first time"
4) Apply to "all" the Med Schools you are interested in
5) 4 yrs Med School
5 a) Find an Internship (paid or volunteer) over a summer
5 b) DO NOT limit yourself to where you would like to get Matched
6) 3 - 4 yrs Residency
6 a) Fellowship (specialize) is 3 - 4 yrs
Good Luck to You!
