How to Apply
Evening Post-baccalaureate Pre-medical program applications are now being accepted for 2018.
Application to a health professional school is approximately a year-long process. Along with the pre-medical science course requirements, the MCAT is a requirement for application to medical schools. Candidates for medical school are advised to apply to the American Medical College Application Service and/or the Association of American Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine Application Service following completion of the program. This usually gives a student a year before gaining acceptance into medical school. During this time, a student is encouraged to continue to gain experience in a clinical setting, participate in volunteer work, or take upper division coursework.
Admission into the program is quite competitive because of the limited number of seats. Candidates for admission to the Evening Post-baccalaureate Pre-medical program must possess the following credentials:
- A bachelor's degree from an accredited U.S. college or university or an international equivalent.
- A cumulative 3.0 undergraduate GPA.
- Standardized examination scores: SAT range of >60th percentile; ACT score of 20 or higher; GRE range of 60th percentile. We strongly encourage submission of a standardized examination score. At the discretion of the admissions committee, individual applicants who do not submit scores will still be considered for acceptance.
- Completion of college algebra and trigonometry or a higher level math course (e.g., Calculus I) is a prerequisite for the program (grade of B or greater). In order for our students to be successful in General Physics, it is imperative that they possess a foundational understanding of math.
- Starting in 2018: if you lack the math requirement, an online math course will be offered in the fall semester.
- Must be a United States citizen or permanent resident.
