MCAT Requirements

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.
