What is the MCAT®?
The Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) is owned and operated by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). For information on the test, including testing dates, locations, and preparation materials, consult the AAMC's website below. Note that the MCAT may be required, optional or not applicable depending on your applicant category. To read the admissions office's position on the 2015 MCAT, please see the last paragraph.
Applicants are required to have finished a majority of their basic science prerequisites (including labs) at the time of application. All of the basic science pre-requisites (at the college or university-level) must be completed by January 15 of the year they will start their medical studies.
