Which medical schools do not have AOA? I googled and didn't find complete information, but it seems that the following don't:
Beta California is somehow missing (In case it's not obvious, it goes Alpha Beta Gamma Delta...)Originally posted by Algunn

Wow, I didn't know that. Any insight into whether naming people late still quells some of the competitiveness?Originally posted by AJM
Yale does have AOA, they just don't name students to the society until the end of their 4th year, after the Match. They like to make applicants think that because they name people so late, they really don't have AOA.
I read somewhere that it makes a difference for those hard-to-get residencies, but im not certain. It's awkward tho, i mean if you have high grades why do you need something like AOA to confirm that. I never joined the pre med honors society but my grades were high enough to; its not like joining would have validated my gpa, so why should it even matter with this aoa?Miss Alyssa said:
