About Rush University
In accordance with our admissions policy, we review applictations holistically meaning all parts are considered when making a decision. The following guidelines should be noted for competitiveness.
  • a 3.0 out of 4.0 gpa cumulative average in undergrad or the most recent degree completed (if you don't have this, please include a brief statement in your statement of purpose explaining your gpa if you wish)
  • Experience is highly valued (especially for the PhD applicantions)
  • GRE scores in the 50th percentile (especially for PhD applications)
  • A well written statement of purpose that speaks to your research interests and future goals
  • Letters of recommendation that speak to your work ethic, knowledge, and dedication (please note, we accept a letter or the completed recommendation form). No need to have them provide both although they are welcome to.
