Assalam alaykum

I am wondering how brothers and sisters in the US got into medical school in the US post-undergrad. I know this topic isn't religious, and I'd understand if it got deleted, but I'd really like a Muslim perspective on getting in. Obviously it isn't very different from everyone else, but it's nice to see our ummah reaching high levels of (dunya) education and showing the world that we can be leaders in any field, especially in a time when the world views us as backwards and uneducated.
