Carribean and MCAT

Post by jhtran »

This is a silly question, but which school out of the BIG 4 does not require MCAT? And before which date does this apply?

Could I skip the MCAT and just apply when I am done with school?

thank you,

None ( SABA has considered some in the past as has ROSS but now a days your chances are about a -5 to get in without one unless you carry a 3.7 or better and even then it's only a little higher, Cali requires the school to require the MCAT.)

hey i just recently applied to med school in the carib because i couldnt in the US (due to my visa status). St. James does not require you to have an MCAT score, I am having my interview next week to see if I get in. I know there are a few others that recommend MCAT but dont require it. Hope this helps.

You can apply and might get an interview without the MCAT, but almost always they will request you to take the MCAT before actually give you the position.
