INFORMATION ABOUT THE NEW MCAT
The Admissions Committee will use the MCAT scores from the current exam in the way they always have, using them in conjunction with other academic information presented on the AMCAS application and letters of recommendation. Because the 2015 scores are new to Admissions Committee members, they will use the percentile ranks for the new scores to see how individual applicants compare to others who took the new exam.
- Students should plan to take the MCAT no later than September prior to the year they are planning for matriculation.
If you took your MCAT exam in
the calendar year of:
Your MCAT scores will be valid
for the following application cycles:
2011 2012, 2013 and 2014 2012 2013, 2014 and 2015 2013 2014, 2015 and 2016 *2014 2015, 2016 and 2017
- *The latest exam scores we will accept for the 2016 application cycle will be from September 12, 2015 - there will be no exceptions. In other words, if AMCAS offers additional testing times in October, November or December of 2015, and this will be the first time you take the exam, you will not be able to use the scores for the 2016 application cycle at our school. Also note, If you have already taken the MCAT exam and have submitted your AMCAS application with scores that do not meet our pre-screening criteria, and you plan to retest in October, November or December (if AMCAS offers additional dates) of 2015, those scores will not be used for a second screening, as it will be too late for our admissions process for the 2016 application cycle.
- If you have submitted your AMCAS application prior to taking the MCAT please note that your application will not be reviewed until the scores have been reported by AMCAS. Students whose total MCAT scores are below 25 are usually not considered competitive.
- The mean MCAT scores for the current first year class are:
Verbal Reasoning: 10.18; Physical Science: 10.88; Biological Science: 11.16
