How is the MCAT used in the application process?
The MCAT score is not included in an overall academic calculation, but is used as a threshold. Applying with marks that fall below the minimum required will jeopardize the success of your application. The MCAT must be written prior to the application deadline. Applications without MCAT scores will not be considered.
Only MCATs written within five years of the application deadline will be considered. You must release to the MCAT score to OMSAS each application cycle. Please ensure that you follow all the steps for releasing your MCAT scores.
Only your most recent MCAT scores will be considered. Please note that this policy is subject to change.
If I don’t meet the minimum MCAT marks, should I apply?
We are adhering to the minimum MCAT requirements due to application numbers.
If the MCAT is written in September, the scores will not be available by the OMSAS deadline. Can I still apply?
