Would Kim Kardashian get into medical school? I’m sure you’ve asked this question plenty of times (or maybe not at all), but regardless, I’m interested. Would she? Time to find out just how competitive of a medical school candidate she is.
Kim’s Academic Background
At first examination, Kim doesn’t seem like the college-bound type. Her only academic credential was that she graduated from Marymount HIgh School in Los Angeles. No information on how well she did, but she was voted “Most Likely to Lie About Her Ethnicity.” Nothing on her grades and one strange recognition, probably in her yearbook — things are not looking so good for Kim.
Anyone know why Kim didn’t at least consider attending college? Did she apply and we don’t know about what happened? Let me know in the comments if there’s some little-known fact about her college plans that I missed — Biochemical Engineering, maybe?
Although not exactly academically-focused, Kim has a few strengths:
- She is a high-profile figure
- She is known to donate to charities
I’m sorry to say, but this list is pretty short. There’s nothing else really that would help her on her medical school application. Maybe her stepdad has shared with her some great tips on how to be in peak physical shape. After all, he did win the decathlon in the ‘76 Olympics.
Weakness In Kim’s Application
Let’s go down the list.
- Lacks any experience with patients or medical training
- No MCAT score
- No college grades
- No education past high school
- No volunteering hours aside from maybe catering at the Los Angeles mission for Thanksgiving in 2011.
So far, so bad for Kim. Let’s see what advice I can give to help her.
Fixing Her App
Kim is now settling down with Kanye West, so maybe she has more time to focus on her future career as a doctor. What she needs to do first is:
- Apply to a college and pursue her studies as a pre-med student; maintain a 3.6 or higher gpa
- Take the MCAT and do well
- Volunteer at places that will give her patient experience
- Use her celebrity status to champion a significant national or international health care cause
As for some personality fixes, she needs to:
- Since she has so much, she should be more willing to give — she needs to demonstrate she is an empathetic person on her application, and thus far she has not shown it.
- Distance herself from reality television — continued work in this genre will only hurt her chances of medical school admission.
So, What’s the Verdict?
If she were to apply today, Kim gets a definite “no acceptance.” If she were to dedicate the next three to four years to her medical school qualifications, then it’s highly likely she’d be a great candidate for at least some medical schools in the U.S.
Now, if Kim and Kanye BOTH wanted to go to the same medical school, that would be an entirely different problem.
