Pre-Medical Scholars Programs Eligibility Requirements

These programs allow students to gain early provisional acceptance to medical schools. In addition, these scholars programs either eliminate or reduce the importance of a high MCAT score as a factor for selection. The programs are non-binding; students can exit whenever they want to, but guaranteed acceptance is forfeited.
