MCAT

All applicants are required to take the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT). Arrangements for taking the MCAT, requesting test reports, and information concerning administration, scoring and processing of the test should be directed to the MCAT office.

Selection of applicants for the medical school class entering in a given calendar year will be based, in part, on MCAT scores acquired during the previous three calendar years.

For applicants applying for the 2021-2022 admissions cycle (entering class of 2022):

  • Oldest MCAT considered: January 2018
  • Latest MCAT considered: September 2021

Selection of alternates may include consideration of MCAT scores acquired in the same calendar year. Applicants must list the last date that they plan to take the MCAT on their AMCAS application.

MCAT results must be received by the Office of Admissions by September 1 to be considered for early decision.
