Applying to medical school

The Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) is required by most U.S. medical schools.

More information on applying to medical school is available through the AAMC. Also see the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS), a centralized application processing service for applicants to the first-year entering classes at the 115 participating US medical schools. Check out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) if you want to apply for federal and state financial aid. Many colleges and universities, especially public institutions, require the FAFSA.

For more information on the MCAT:

Contact your campus health professions advisor.

Consult Medical School Admission Requirements (MSAR) to determine the US medical school's specific MCAT requirements at AAMC.
