Unable To Wait, Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Look at the blog post from January 21, 2016 by Admissions, and this will really clear up all of the concerns here. No pre-req average is counted this year and this DOES NOT impact the pre-interview calculations. They are still the same as last year. Score out of 50 based on your overall or adjusted GPA and score out of 50 for your NAQ. Those combined scores give you a total score out of 100, and there is a cut off score for the interview.  Admissions never used the separate pre-req average (even when they were required) in determining who gets an interview. It was only used in the past for the holistic review. Obviously an average won't be calculated this year because there are no pre-reqs, though I am sure they will still look at your science courses that were taken and how you did, etc.  Hope that helps!

Yep! Further, it's possible that the MCAT science sections will be considered more strongly in lieu of the pre-req removal
