High school seniors interested in the Program must complete an application with Siena by November 1, indicating the application plan for Albany Med with the Biology BA as the major option.

Students must have a combined score of 1300 in the old SAT or 1360 in the new SAT or an ACT composite score of a 30+, rank in the top 10 percent of their graduating class, and have four years each of high school math and science. Once these threshold values are met the committee focuses on assessing the candidates' strengths in the following areas:

  • Scholarship
  • Leadership
  • Communication Skills
  • Commitment to Service
  • Potential Contributions to the Siena College Community

Volunteer Activities

Letters of recommendation, personal essays and demonstrated service to the community then become the determining factors. Any student considering medicine should have health related experience. In the past successful candidates have been involved in a variety of human service activities:

  • Worked in soup kitchens
  • Cared for individuals with disabilities
  • Worked with children with special needs
  • Tutored inner city youth
  • Worked in homeless shelters
