    AP,

    1. You need to graduate in the top 1/4 of your class.

    2. You need to do meaningful research on a closely related topic - publication is preferred.

    3. You need an outstanding USMLE score - 220 required, 240 preferred.

    4. You need outstanding letters of recommendation from Ortho Surgeons that you rotate under.
