Selection Procedure

The WellSpan York Hospital MLS Program utilizes an Admissions Committee. This committee uses an objective point system to select students for the class from the qualified applicant pool. This system is based on the cumulative grade point average, the science GPA, college affiliation, reference letters and an interview rating by the committee. A maximum 100 points are possible. Points are assigned using the following scale:

The Admission Committee tallies points for all qualified applicants. Those with the highest scores are offered class positions. Because these students may not elect to accept a class position, the committee also ranks several alternates according to their scores.

Class selections and notifications usually occur by the end of November. Students who accept class positions are expected to honor their commitment to the WellSpan York Hospital MLS Program.
