Eligibility and Degree Requirements


Applicants will be evaluated on the basis of their undergraduate academic record and recommendations from at least two individuals knowledgeable about the student's academic potential. All applicants for admission are required to have a baccalaureate degree that includes the following courses: General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Biology, and Physics. The majority of students accepted have a cumulative and science GPA of 3.0 or higher. However, students with lower GPAs may be accepted if their record shows marked improvement in the later years of their undergraduate career.


In addition, prospective students are required to submit the results of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). Generally it is expected that students will have GRE scores in the 60th percentile or higher. Scores of the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) or Dental Admissions Test (DAT) scores may be used as substitutes for GRE scores. Note that you must have taken your GRE/MCAT/DAT within 5 years of your application date.
