I am a non-EU applicant from the United States and I am confused about how the application process works. When I take the IMAT am I applying for all the schools or just 1? I heard that you can rank your schools so if I don’t get accepted to my first choice can I get into another school? Also how many people apply as Non-EU on average? And what score should I aim for in order to be accepted?
You can apply for more than one university but for Non-EU the first choice is far more important, because for Non-EU candidates the university will always prioritize candidates who picked that university as their first choice.

Haven’t seen any statistics on how many Non-EU apply. For 2017 the minimal scores can bei found here: https://www.medschool.it/medschools-italy/compare-all-medical-schools-rankings/
