Prerequisites (beginning with the 2015 matriculation year)

While it is recommended that all prerequisites be completed prior to taking the MCAT, completion of the prerequisites is not a requirement to have a file reviewed, be interviewed or receive an offer.  Completion of all prerequisites is a requirement for enrollment, and must be fulfilled by August 1 of the matriculation year.

To ensure accurate academic records, all official transcripts must be submitted by August 1 of the matriculation year.  Transcripts must come directly from the educational institutions.  AMCAS does not forward transcripts to the medical schools.

3 quarters or trimesters are required if you are on the quarter or trimester system.
